Christmas was fun. We decorated two big trees, baked cookies, went
to a formal holiday ball, visited friends, and had a wonderful holiday
trip to San Antonio. David was off for 10 full days, which was a real
treat for me.
We came back to town just before New Year's Eve and spent
the evening with our neighbors and good friends. I have not blogged
much of late because I was trying to savor the holiday.
And now it's over. David has returned to work and it's time for me
to take down all the decorations and pack them up for next year.
I will be purging some things and that always feels good.
I have been thinking about making some changes too. I really
feel ready to start fresh this new year. Some new paint, some
new window treatments, and landscaping. It's time to get the
old oak trees trimmed. That will be a big project and will take
at least two full days. We have been talking about putting in a
pool and had some plans drawn up. Lots of ideas floating
As much fun as the holidays were, it's fun to look ahead
and make new plans. I'm anxious to get started and y'all
are welcome to come along for the ride!
I treasure your friendship and I pray that
2017 brings happiness and good health and love
to all of you.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
