Its been a bustling December with all the unpacking of moving crates, technology set ups and construction punch lists at my day job and my yearly Christmas traditions but I’m happy to report we’ve culminated both in grand style. I now have a cubicle with a water view and yes as promised a decked out Christmas at Casa Mady and a few others as well. I guess the only thing that got bogged down was my posts here on the blog but I promise I have tons of photos and stories to share. It was also my youngest’s 25th birthday and even that was magical.
As a lass I remember the eagerness I felt as each years arrival of the Holiday season came rolling into immediately after Halloween. My parents owned an office supply store way before the big box ones were around and mom would commence her Christmas Card sales at the store for clients & walk ins and then visited many families homes in the eves til it was too late to order more. She eventually hired 2 sales people and the trio was very successful for a couple of decades. Mom, Tony and Pilar still reminesce in my memory bank of traditions of dats gone by. I tried my hand at it for a bit but by the time I got into it a lot less people were sending cards so in the best of Christmas spirit from the past I made a list, got all in order and mailed my cards out in time. Boy did it feel great too. I still recieve a few each year and love to experience this Christmas tradition since it brings a soft touch to the heart when you read them and I put it on display! I have a hand beaded Santa a former neighbor use to make when my kids were growing up and thats where mine go. Then years later I use them to decorate all around the house.
I did receive joyous compliments after several people received them so I think I’ll keep it ongoing for now!!!
