Treasures and a Bit of Fun

Posted by mcm0704 on January 6, 2021 |

We’ve had pleasant days here in Texas recently, and yesterday I took advantage of the warm weather to undecorate from Christmas and get things packed back in the garage. Normally I wait until after January 6, the day the three wise men visited baby Jesus, but it’s going to get wet and colder here. I […]

No Room at the Inn

Posted by mcm0704 on December 24, 2019 |

Last Friday, my neighbors invited me to a Posada celebration held at their house. One of the neat things about living here in a primarily Spanish part of Sherman is what I’ve been learning about Spanish culture and some of the beautiful traditions. Las Posadas, (Spanish: “The Inns”) religious festival celebrated in Mexico and some […]

The Ghost of Christmas Past

Posted by mcm0704 on December 20, 2019 |

Books Make Great Gifts

Posted by mcm0704 on December 6, 2019 |

My whole family are avid readers, and we often gift each other with books, especially at this holiday season. It’s an extra bonus when we can get an autographed book, and the ones I have reside on a special shelf in my bookcase. When I moved, almost two years ago now, I had to downsize […]
