Re: purple prince zinnia seeds


Well said Jesse. What is really upsetting is that as soon as the decorations go up, my grandaughter starts the "I want I want chant". She wrote her letter to santa, so I just say you wrote your letter, we'll see. Nip that in the bud. I love Christmas. I've been in choir rehearsal for our Christmas fireside since mid September. It's an hour and a half on Sunday evening. That gets me in the Christmas mood very nicely, and I avoid stores as much as I can from now until January. Commercialization makes me cranky too, so I try to ignore it.

Hey..just the seeds are great Pam.  You don't need to worry about anything
else. It will be a slim Christmas for me this year too...just because I've
gone back to school and I have been studying like crazy.  Haven't had the
time to make a bunch of soaps and bath stuff like I normally do (but I got
yours made already - not to worry)  Plus, now that the kids are all older,
and struggling to make it on their own, I told them that we would draw names and $50 is the MAX they are allowed to spend on somebody. Christmas is not about a bunch of gifts...and the commercialism of it makes me cranky. They have Christmas stuff up in the stores before HALLOWEEN now...give me a break
just once.
What makes me warm and fuzzy around the holidays is playing music while
putting up the tree, a fire in the fireplace, kids home - playing card games
at the table and shouting and laughing about who is cheating and who is
winning, the smell of something good cooking in the oven.  It's love, and
family, and that feeling of "connecting" with the Spirit and those you love
that make Christmas special.  I'm not a "bah humbug" but I don't like the
media trying to "sell" me Christmas.  (Wow...I sound old, huh?  A female
Andy Rooney)

My pleasure Tricia.  Jim, yours go in the mail tomorrow (also w/ Bette
Davis
stamp) and Jess, I'll send yours w/ your Xmas pkg next month.  It'll be a
little light but I've got to get this house painted and the paint will cost
me a small fortune.  But I'm getting the good stuff so I don't have to do
it
again.  You know much I loathe painting.
