Blue Monday

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas 
Ev'rywhere you go; 
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again 
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow. 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas 
Toys in ev'ry store 
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be 
On your own front door. 
A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots 
Is the wish of Barney and Ben; 
Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk 
Is the hope of Janice and Jen; 
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again. 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas 
Ev'rywhere you go; 
There's a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well, 
The sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow. 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas; 
Soon the bells will start, 
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing ..
Right within your heart.

Hello friends..
By this time NEXT week..
Christmas will be past..
and we will be gearing up to welcome in a brand 
new year!
In the meantime, I'm savoring these last few days by  listening to carols sung by childhood favorites..
these transport me back into the time of simple pleasures..
that magical childlike feeling of awed anticipation..
and remembering the reason for the celebration of this most beautiful holiday of them all..
from my home to you and yours..
my wish..

Please visit Sally and all the gang for more

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
