2018 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGOND
~December 22, 2018
Christmas is officially around the corner–right after the weekend. Are you excited? We sincerely hope that you are –and that you are able to share the experience with those whom you love the most.
Everywhere the stores are filled with people looking for the perfect something. Last night at Walmart, Ashley and I hit the jackpot. We went through the self-checkout to avoid the long lines. We waited only a moment for our turn. We had no sooner started to check out when Ashley noticed the long lines waiting for the self-checkout too. When we arrived at the movie house, Cliff and Nick were there sitting in the theater seats waiting for us. (Haha) The parking lot was packed–we were not the only ones there for a Friday night movie.
This week was more of the puppy thing–as you might be aware it has been slow coming. Now that the pups are here we are ever so busy with them. It is surprising–all they require moment-to-moment.
This Week On the Blog…
Wow–thank you once again everyone–those who took the time to contribute. At one point I was starting to sweat the need for material and then I found the Emailed updates. You are beyond awesome.

On a very personal note
Cliff and I have been doing the usual sort of things–you know what I mean. Cliff gave the old pump house some love recently–the roof has been repaired and several gaps filled.
We have not gone all out with Christmas decorations–it is mostly our nativity and the two faux trees we have decorated. They met with the Great Granddaughter’s approval. They enjoy the fact that we have bells that they can ring. (Haha) They informed us that they have a fake tree this year. (OMG)
The two girls noticed that we have our small box of gifts ready for the Christmas Eve gathering. This was both troubling and delightful to them. They feel as if it has been a couple of years worth of waiting. Soon, it will be over for another year. Quite possibly the waiting is the best part of the whole thing–at least, next to the giving.
