Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #11

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Favourite Christmas Memory? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/11/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-11-favourite-christmas-memory/)

Hmmmm…that’s a hard one.  I think my first Christmas with Kevin.  We spent Christmas Eve at his parents, and he gave me a bouquet of flowers – wrapped them up and everything.  When I unwrapped them, I thought they were all dead, but his mom found some water for them, and they all fluffed up happy again.  Who wraps flowers?  Kevin!

This has nothing to do with this story, but here’s a picture of one of our Christmas trees from back in our days in Regina…

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #10

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – Snow for Christmas? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/10/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-10-snowy-christmas/)

Have I ever had a snowing Christmas?  I lived in Saskatchewan for most of my life.  So, yes.  Big snow, big snow storms, big shoveling, big coldness.

But, we have even had snowy Christmases here.  One in particular had Kevin stuck here on Christmas Eve (I had left early to go back to Saskatchewan for Christmas, and he was following on the 24th).  They don’t have a lot of snow plows here, and really don’t know how to use the ones they have.  So, he had to wait until the 25th, but thanks to West Jet getting all their customers taken care of in spite of massive cancellations, he made it!

Here’s what it looked like out at our place that day.

Why do I always feel like these guys are giving me the third degree?

Doh!  Doh!  Doh!  I forgot Kitten Thursday – oh no!

I hope you can forgive a pre-holiday brain and still enjoy Kitten Thursday on a Friday…and just in time for Caturday tomorrow!

A good book in front of the fire…

Exhausted from all that reading…

 

Christmas Special (2017) Writing Prompt #8

Welcome to Our Random View’s Christmas Special Writing Prompts.  Today’s theme – The Best Part of Christmas? (https://ourrandomview.wordpress.com/2017/12/08/christmas-special-2017-writing-prompt-8-the-best-part-of-christmas/)

So, what part of Christmas do I most look forward to?  Ok.  Let’s be honest here.  Are you expecting me to say “time with friends and family…blah blah blah?”  Ok, that’s great and all, but what I look forward to at Christmas is the stuffing.  Yes.  The stuffing.

I can hardly wait!

Yum!!

Oh, and Elliot and Jasper LOVE to help me.
