Christmas Stress, Mud Puddles and Dreads


Wrote this little ditty in 2009, holds true still…

Gonna pull out the Christmas DVD ‘The Nativity’. Love that movie. Also love the DVD

the Gospel of John. Watch them!


first snow of the year here at the farm. the kids, I mean, dogs, love it. Me not so much, but only cuz I get cold walking dogs. It was beautiful tho.

As we get older we tend to forgot all the beauty in the little things in our world. We sit inside most of the time with our faces staring at a computer or TV or other such thing.

Mud puddles covered with ice, sunny snow covered trees, little snails I see when walking dogs in Fife, flowers, birds, icicles, the look at someone’s face when you do the unexpected for them.

We need to stop and remember those things.

Even shopping with my son is better than buying stuff for him. Time spent together. Of course, hubby too, but he is in his own little heaven coaching high school wrestling. So I get to miss him for a few months.


Hair is looking mighty crazy but dreading really really fast.

The Christmas season still sucks for me, but I am trying to find the good things in it.

My own expectations of how it should be haunt me.

The past few years have not been the best in the [extended] family dept., so I miss all of us getting together.

The commercialism of the whole season is ridiculous and fighting and the deaths and illness and sin.

All of it sucks the life right out of me and I would much rather go to bed from November to January.

Not much else going on, I hang out on Facebook way too much. I start to write blog posts and leave them half finished.

I clean my house and work. I am blessed. I need to remember just that.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

  1. so what are you doing differently this time for the dreads for them to get so gnarly so much quicker? Can’t wait to head west to see you guys….I’m keeping my fingers crossed, but hoping we can spend my birthday @ your place…(I have one more project to finish then going to set a firm date) peace and love.

    • sorry it took so long to answer, my hair was pretty fried from coloring and the previous attempts at dreading. hair needs to be clean and dry for it to dread. XOX
