Friday – JohnKu – TGIF

Funny Friday


We are getting close to Christmas, and it looks like I have everything under control. All my shopping is done, packages wrapped, and chores finished. (There are always chores) The fact that Christmas Eve is on a Sunday has me a little confused. As you may know, I do a Views of the neighborhood on Sunday and a Top Ten Things Not to Do on Mondays.  In the spirit of the Holiday, I will not be doing a classic Views or Top Ten. It is my intent to take the two days to remember the spirit of the season.

I hope your holiday will be filled with the joy intended. This week’s JohnKu talks about the holiday wish.

So this is Christmas,

Time to reflect true meaning. . .

A meaningful peace.

    My Sunday Serialisation and Monday’s Kreative Kue are already scheduled, so I can enjoy our daughter and son-in-law’s visit without having to worry about the blog.
