It's A Beautiful Morning
Sunrise over the barn
but cold. Seriously cold.
I was so thankful that I did not have to go anywhere yesterday, though I did do all the animal care. The chickens water was completely frozen, even though we have put it inside the coop!
We watched "A Christmas Carol" last night - the version from 1951, I think. Black and white. It was good, and the younger kids were able to follow the story because we had listened to the Radio Theater version a few weeks ago on our way to Williamsburg. It shows, so well, a life that is changed. Scrooge was so giddy at the joy of a second chance and because he knew he was going to be able to help Bob Cratchit and his family. That is the kind of joy we should have at Christmas!
I have a few errands to run this morning. I will be bundling up very well...
Thank you for your comments yesterday. I emailed everyone back that I was able to. I so appreciate the discussion. Please know that I was not saying to not buy gifts - we do buy gifts for our family, my thoughts were more about entitlement.
Have a wonderful day!
