I have been brought up to be polite, and I was taught that the one of the rudest things that you can do is drop in without calling. Therefore, I always call first. This also means that people showing up without calling is a little annoying to me. But, I was taught to be polite, so my annoyance never shows.

The smell of a cooking turkey and cooking vegetable are my favorite holiday smells. Every Christmas myself and my parents either had Christmas dinner at my grandparents' house for ours. Either way there was a turkey involved. My grandparents always cooked a turkey and a roast for Christmas Dinner along with all the vegetable. They didn't make a particular dessert, but they put treats like nuts, chocolates candy or for us to munch on. My mother usually make pie or cake for dessert.
I loved the Christmases we went to my grandparents' house, so these smells are my favorite and remind me of fantastic Christmases.

Faith, hope, joy and love are three very important things that we need in our life.
We all have to have something to believe in, so faith is important. I have a deep faith in God, and that gives me a guide in my behavior and something to look forward to. There is faith in others as well. We must believe in the people in our lives that we love. I have had a few disappointments in this area, but I believe that my boyfriend and the people on this site have my best interests in mind.
We all need to be hopeful. I have hope that the world's problems will be worked out and that we will have wise leaders that will do the right thing for this world. Without hope we will be consumed by despair.
We all need some happiness in our lives. Work is not enough. We have to get out and enjoy ourselves. We can find joy in just being with those we love, as well. We all need happy times in our lives.
Love is, probably, the most important thing to have in our lives. We need to feel loved and accepted. It is good for our well being and our mental and physical health. We need to learn out to love, and the only way for that to happen is to be loved.

I am so glad that human rights has its own day. We should always remember to treat everyone with respect and make sure that everyone has the basic rights. In so many countries people are not treated the way they should be. From child marriage to the denial of women's rights, it is a heart breaking reality. I believe in equality and inclusion. I will be taking note of, and remember, Human Rights Day.

         I have thought up my first program for my new group "Transition To Success". It will be tentatively called "Create Your First Program and Abundance". I will start creating it this week and hope to start selling it the second week of January. My Foundation Pack is not selling. It is only cheap, only $60.00 for three resources. May it is not as valuable as I thought.
         I am hoping that more people will subscribe to my blog, but I am happy with the response so far.
         Here's to another busy week.

It can be hard to juggle a bucket list after you have come up with on. The best thing to do is arrange your week before hand. That clammy feeling you get as you think of things you have to get finished can be calmed with a bit of organization. Don't get delirious with stress. Let your life be like heaven. With a little planning you can be as relaxed as when you sit looking a the beauty of a rose.

This quote reminds me of last night. We had our first major snow storm. My boyfriend spent most of the morning digging us out of the house and clearing the driveway out in case he needed to get the car out. The yard is white with snow, and the step had to salted.
Right now, memories of summer and hot weather are very distant indeed.

I live in Canada but Ronald Reagan was President of the U.S. during all of my teenage years, and I couldn't tell you back then who was Prime Minister in Canada, but I knew who Ronald Reagan was. I always found his down to earth style very endearing when I saw his various televised speeches and talks. I loved that after most of these he mentioned his wife Nancy. He accomplished something great when he came to terms with Prime Minister Gorbechev of Russia and ended the Cold War.
I hadn't realized until recently that he actually been a movie star. I recently saw one of his movies, and thought he had been a very talented actor.
I was home alone working on my computer when I heard that he died. I remember, also, when he was shot by the man who was stalking Jodie Foster. I recently watched a television show about this. It was eye opening for me.
I will always remember Ronald Reagan.

“Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.” ―Edna Ferber

We all say "The Christmas season" but, I think Miss Ferber is right. Christmas is about love, family and good will. We should be filled with generosity and have a big heart during Christmas. Christmas is about more then gifts and parties. It is about grasping the love you have for anyone close to you and finding love and understanding for those people that are in your life but not necessarily close to. I love the loving feelings that permeate Christmas. I love saying "Merry Christmas" to everyone I know. I love giving to the Salvation Army as the do their donation drive at Christmas time.
Christmas is about love and togetherness, so it is truly a feeling and not a season.

All these words remind me of Christmas in one way or another. I like a green Christmas but light, fluffy snowflakes falling on Christmas morning a beautiful sight. When I was a little girl, my father always went out Christmas Eve and got me my gift. He always came home with one of those porcelain dolls. There's a pile of them in my old bedroom in the house I grew up in. My mother always used very creative wrapping paper when she wrapped gifts for Christmas. She went on one, special shopping trip just for wrapping paper. Christmas trees are pine trees. I have one real Christmas tree since I have moved out on my own. It was messy and a great deal of trouble, so my boyfriend and I will be sticking to artificial trees from now on. The packed malls are a real sign of Christmas. I get my Christmas shopping finished on October in order to avoid dealing with the crowds. I love the poetry that is on many of the greetings cards for sale at Christmas time, as well as many of the Christmas scenes on these cards. I can't wait to celebrate Christmas this year.
