Christmas All Week Long

 Do something special for yourself each day this week as you ready for the holidays. Relish a perfect cup of eggnog.  Get up very late (or very early!) Monday night and watch the lunar eclipse. Go to a child's Christmas concert. Count your Blessings!



Present of the Day: Starbucks Nesting Tea Mug Set. So darling. So practical. Something pretty I could use each day.

Writing Quote of the Day: "A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper." E B White (1899-1985)   Wow, do I love this one. And absolutely treasure the work of E.B. White, which only makes it better.

So glad to meet a fellow Kansan and a fellow writer! Welcome to On Crooked Creek! I'll be reading some of your past post this week in my "stolen moments" of down time to get better aquainted. Please stop by again soon!
Fondly,
Pat

What a lovely post! And I LOVE that E.B. White quote !

My indulgence tonight has been watching Christmas episodes of Keeping Up Appearances and Are You Being Served? LOVE those old Brit comedies!

The nesting teacups are a wonderful gift for someone like me who's never without a hot drink in her hand. You always pick the best quotes too. I love stopping by this blog. Thanks, Gillian!

Louisa, right back atcha! I am snuggling with my dog and cat each night in bed, and it's both crowded and very cozy. I hope you have a blessed holiday.

Why, thank you, Clarissa! I feel the same way about the Lady Scribes. Such excellent posts. Have a beautiful holiday. :)
