Christmas Eve Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Good morning! This is always a BIG day in our family! We have our big family meal on Christmas Eve 😊 LOTS of cooking to do and I love to listen to some Christmas music.  Here’s a cool piano mix I came across that has all the classics…

Merry Christmas 🎅🏻❤️🎄

Sunday Reflections…

We spent last night with family (sister, cousins, kids, etc.) talking, eating and playing games. I laughed so hard I may have pulled something 🤣 We had a Christmas bonfire 🔥 & listened to every Christmas song on my exhaustive ITunes list 😉 1 word – FUN!

This is so true! Family is so important ❤️

“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.”

~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

Merry Christmas! 😊🎄🎅🏻

5! Count Em’🖐🏻 5 Days till Christmas! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Can you believe Christmas is in only 5 Days! WOW! That means only 4 “Shopping Days” left, 3 if the store your going to is closed on Sunday 😳

But seriously, have you gotten out and enjoyed the Christmas season? Looked at lights, gone shopping with your family or friends, attended a Christmas program or party??? There is still time, slow down and look around! It’s Christmas 🎅🏻

Fun Idea for the weekend – Do some shopping, eat dinner out then check out David Markowski’s Christmas Light display! Perfect little ride out of town – listen to Christmas music, drink some coco, then catch the show! Complete with his own radio station to tune into while on the driving trail – Boom! Here’s a link for the low-down-https://m.facebook.com/christmaslightman/

Christmas is in 5 days! Get out and enjoy some “Christmas Spirit”! Merry Christmas 🎄🎅🏻

Old Friends and Christmas Songs –

Yesterday would have been my friend Bill Ways 75th. birthday. We were both Sagittarians (Birthdays between – Nov. 22nd – Dec. 21st.) and I learned over time that we had much in common – Love of animals, the TN. River, old cars, and music were just a few! Bill was a ‘Music Aficionado” & could blow your mind with his vast knowledge of the music world! He not only knew obscure songs and artists, he knew about the history of the song in question, even down to who played the instruments on the studio tracks! He WOWED many a listener, ME included! This time of year he was heavily into playing Christmas songs, many that you never heard of… So, I want to play a Christmas song in Bills memory. This was one of his favorites and is now one of mine.

PS: Grab a tissue first, you might need it!

 

Merry Christmas Y’all! 🎅🏻

Sunday Reflections…

We the spent the evening and part of last night decorating the Christmas tree & putting up all our indoor decorations. Lots of great memories and stories always come out during these yearly traditions 🎅🏻 We listened to Christmas tunes new and old… BOOM! – I’m officially in the “Christmas spirit”!

I think the tree turned out great! All the thanks goes to Jo & Jacob.

It was a group effort and I’m proud of how the tree looks this year. Jacob is 16 now and still LOVES the Christmas 🎄 & spending time with his Mom & Dad. That’s the best present I could ask for 😍

And for another tradition we started many years ago now, I broke out my holiday hat…

December 1st. I break out my “Redneck Santa” hat! 🎅🏻 I like to have a little fun in the spirit of the season & since I’ve let my beard grow out, they tell me I even look like St. Nick 😊 Ho Ho Ho!

 

“May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;                                                  The spirit of Christmas which is Peace;        The heart of Christmas which is love.”

~ Ada V. Hendricks

 

Heres to a great Christmas Season! 🙏🏻❤️🎄

Peace ✌️ Love ❤️ & Hope!
