thoughts while shavingChristmas times a coming … just over 3 weeks away … Hope you are making progress, whatever role you play … no doubt a busy time … more later…

Ever wonder where squirrels, rabbits, birds go when the weather changes? Not sure where that came from … Just thinking about changes in the weather … freezing a few days ago, then warm, wet, windy … we all need a safe harbor … a place where we feel safe and secure … What about wildlife? Fortunately, most of us have our safe harbor … That’s what I was thinking as I finalize our Christmas tree efforts for another year…

Remember the first Christmas program at school or church? For some of us … many years ago.

How’s the shopping process going? ‘Bout completed? For many, just place the order, have it delivered to the door … approve or disapprove, pay and move on … Not so easy for some of us senior citizens … Need to see, feel, maybe try on … contemplate … question … Understand?

For others … aging, those strugglin’, wondering what’s next? Too much to process … some gotta make some tough decisions…

Today is church day … It’s a busy time … Youngsters rehearsing their part on the program, choirs busy preparing music, teachers preparing lessons … Ministers with a sermon ready to deliver … All about our role in the process … Some disregard it all…

Just thinking out loud…

Sports on TV today … a wide range of sports activity…

As of just after midnight, nearly a quarter of an inch of rain at the local weather station. High temp over past 24 yours … 71 degrees.

Looking ahead … A chance of showers today, mainly between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Patchy fog early. Otherwise, cloudy with a high near 76 and windy, gusts as high as 20 mph … 30% chance of precipitation.

Tonight, mostly cloudy with a low around 51. Monday, mostly sunny with a high near 68 and windy … Looking ahead, colder weather on the way … low Wednesday night … 32 degrees … daytime highs, low to mid 50s. December type weather…

“Growing older gracefully means having a keen curiosity about learning things about the world that you didn’t know yesterday, no matter how many yesterdays you’ve had.” Padma Lakshimi

“As long as you can see each day as a chance for something new to happen, something you never experienced before, you will stay young.” Sarah Louise Delany

“Aging is not an option, not for anyone. It is how gracefully we handle the process and how lucky we are, as the process handles us.” Cindy McDonald
