I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

Oh, how I love that beautiful old Christmas song sung by the crooner, Bing! Doesn't it almost make you cry? Well, most precious Ones, dream is all I can do...it ain't a gonna happen here! ;)


But my Christmas will be sort of white! Do you see those gorgeous white pelicans above? They're here!! In an area of wetlands so many of these beauties are gathered just looking like snowballs from afar. I wish I could get closer but can only see them from the highway!

I know some of you may not appreciate the beauty of the whiteness...you may say 'beautiful?' Yes, Dear Ones these birds are beautiful and God must have laughed all day long when He created these darling feather balls. They look awkward, but to watch them float in the air, dive with precision as they fish and even swallowing a fish is remarkable to me! Now this leads me to my post for today...

God is still laughing because He has given me lemons from my lemon tree for Christmas! He know how easily amused I am, Dearest Ones, so He decided to let my lemons all get ripe at the same time and a tad bit earlier this year. He knew I was fretting a bit about my non installed floors and He knows I'm just a silly and needed a diversion! Well, He knew just what to do - He gave me lemons!
Oh, I'm just so thrilled I can hardly see straight. Well, I can't really see straight anyway - first thing in the morning I have to put on my contacts. ;)

What does a silly like me do when God gives her a tree just overflowing with lemons?
I make lemonade!

This is how I make it! Slice up some of the juicy plump little lemons and add a little bit of candlelight...

Toss in some vintage tinsel and vintage Christmas ornaments...

And there you have it! Lemonade, fresh, tart and sweet and an early Christmas present from God!!
Thank you God!! ;)********************************************************

Be a bunch of sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Lemon Tree

When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me,
Come here and learn a lesson from the lovely lemon tree.
Don't put your faith in love, my boy, my father said to me,
I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely lemon tree.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Beneath the lemon tree one day, my love and I did a lie
A girl so sweet that when she smiled the sun rose in the sky.
We passed that summer lost in love beneath the lemon tree
The music of her laughter hid my fathers words from me:
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
One day she left without a word. she took away the sun.
And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done.
Shed left me for another, its a common tale but true.
A sadder man but wiser now I sing these words to you:
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
sung by Peter, Paul and Mary
