Porte Musings:

Read some well written fantasy books today or at least watch the Lord of the Rings again as we celebrate J.R.R. Tolkien Day.

Also remember you die on Memento Mori Day. Not to be morbid, but all good things come to an end. Do the exercise of writing your own obituary. Are you the person you want to be remembered as? If not it’s not too late, you can become that person.

One of my favorite treats are chocolate covered cherries. So today I have a reason to indulge as it’s National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day.

On the 10th Day of Christmas my true love gave to me:

Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-laying
Five golden rings (five golden rings)
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle-doves
And a partridge in a pear tree

Porte Musings:

I dream of being able to wander again. Archie and Smokie are wondering why we haven’t left for warmer climate yet. Rickie doesn’t leave my side just in case we decide to leave him behind. With travel still limited we’ve just walking around town or the local conservation area. Friends have called to say they’ve gone for a drive, just to get out of the house, with no particular place to go and no place to stop.

So I’ve started some Bonsai seeds and looked through some seed catalogues. I’ve also started going to the dollar stores in hopes of getting my favorite seeds this year (last year they were sold out). As the days have just started to get longer I’m looking forward to signs of spring. I’ve also started to look for trips for late 2021. Greece is still one of my bucket list places. My sister says Ireland has some amazing sales, but I don’t know if my husband can fly again……
