colder than a well-diggers ass

John used to say that too. Seems we have some memories in common.

My Mom and Dad had bunches of "that type of sayings", and I find that I will occasionally use them at appropriate times! The old times just have a way of sticking in my memories. Those were days when life seemed simpler...and more innocent. Those days were harder, one needed to dig deep and work hard for what was needed.... Less complicated.

Little house was a bit of a wreck, what with coming home, preparations to leave Monday with the grands, then again on the 1st for three months in the Interstate, presents needing wrapped, etc....stuff a bit of everywhere, but it is better now as I have done my usual Friday tear thru.

Still lots of things in piles, but my piles are now tidy.

I removed this switchplate cover from the back bedroom this morning...Doug's man-cave since we have had the house to ourselves.

His youngest boy made this for his Dad for Father's Day when he was about 5, I think, and its' well worn surface attests to how much Doug cherished this, and that he proudly displayed it wherever he lived.

After Doug died, Jake would go into that back bedroom and just sob, looking at the photos, prints and other things of his Dad's that were/are still on the walls back there...and, there was this switchplate, made by him, that his Dad had kept and used all these years.

Jake couldn't bring himself to remove it, as his Dad had been the last to touch it, and was going to do it when he felt able, but now it will go to his sister, as is only right.

Doug was deeply sentimental, as was Jake...and, yes, Doug kissed my forehead, said he was sorry, made me laugh, etc...all those things.

A highly intelligent, very complicated man....and most importantly, a very good man.

Maggie

Hi Carroll, and Merry Christmas to you and Paula!

I cannot imagine how beautiful snow would be in your spot of paradise on Orcas...it almost brings a tear to my eye to think of it.

Enjoy, and hugs to you both.

Maggie

I am loving my homemade bath salts.

I had some jojoba oil with lavender and rosemary, so used that for the oil ingredient, added a bit more lavender essential oil, and about a teaspoon of rose essential oil.

I made a big batch, using an entire bag of Epsom Salts, mixed it all up and put it in a large jar. Lovely scented, and moisturizing.

The grand-girls will say it doesn't have bubbles, but that's okay, more for me.

Many health benefits from the magnesium sulfate, which you absorb thru your skin.

Doug happened upon this item, while visiting his father's last surviving brother in Oregon some years ago...and when the uncle gave it to him, Doug wept tears of joy and gratitude.

An advertising item for the rock quarry Doug's Dad ran in the 1940's with a brother, this hung in the back bedroom until he died, at which time it went to Jake.

Now hanging at Doug's daughters' home in Iowa City...

A treasured memento of a man long dead, and a time past...notice the phone numbers.

Half full or half empty doesn't really matter as long as there is a pitcher handy for refills.

So true, Gerard, and may a full pitcher always be at the ready.

I'm ready for tomorrow...cookies are baked and frosted, gifts are wrapped, roll dough is in the frig to bake up in the am.

It's been a full day.
