Welcome to my Red Charistmas Palooza.  Growing up mom used metaphors all the time and Palooza was one that I understood to mean a gathering of many things.  Like all my toys out on the floor at once was a Palooza.  Curious,  I quickly asked Google what he thought Palooza meant. Seems mom and Wikipedia seem to think a Palooza is an exaggerated event, she was right again.

A few days in a row we have had a light dusting of snow, just enough to remind us that mother nature has been by. I’ve seen a number of tracks in the backyard these days from fox, mice, birds even the neighbours cat has come for a visit.

Maybe while we have tea this afternoon we will see some wildlife.

An exciting week ahead. I finished all the decorating in the tea room on Monday, we got fresh snow, hung the lights outside over the weekend, then today I finished baking 12 dozen for our Christmas Exchange tomorrow night, now I just have to find some Christmas music and I’m done.

“Lord” thank you for this marvelous day.  It is a joy to hear the turkey drive has started and people are so giving, I’m blessed to have such caring family and friends around me, I give thanks for the little things in life that bring us joy. 

Today is Tea Time Tuesday and Sandi has offered to host a blog where everyone will share something tea, won’t you join me for a cup while I head over and hang my stocking.

 

Well this has been a Palooza of Red, of Christmas, and of cookies, I can’t wait to show you all the treats, stay tuned. 

xoxo, Cindy
