Christmas Traditions

     Every year we have a tradition of going to a Christmas tree farm to cut our tree. Generally this is a long process as we struggle to agree which is the perfect tree. This year we had fun looking for trees in 20 degree weather. Even the boys were frozen. Needless to say we found the right tree in record time. Then we went home and enjoyed a mug of hot chocolate with the grand kids. Nothing smells so wonderful as a fresh cut Christmas tree.

After the holiday

It's Monday after a Thanksgiving Weekend and I feel like a slug. I didn't over eat although I ate more pie and bread the last few days than I have for months. My daughter made a delicious pecan pie and didn't take home the leftovers so I had to eat finish it.

I know my lack of exercise is a major reason I feel sluggish. It's the start of a new week and a great time to get out there walking. Exercising is always on the bottom of my to due list despite the fact I know the more I workout the better I feel.
