A Riverside Christmas

We arrived yesterday afternoon to a warm humid day. It rained off and on the entire way which made for light traffic. We were pleased to find the house as lovely as ever. As we drove through town, it truly kept us in the Christmas spirit. All the old trees are lined with lovely white lights.

As soon as the car was unloaded, the kid began assembling and decorating our little Riverside tree. We were unable to find any fire wood when we arrived so we settled for the logs you can get at the grocery stores. It does the trick. Any fire is better than an old gas fire like we have in Tennessee.

It's wonderful being here and I think we are all ready to have our batteries regenerated. In fact, the hub has already been to the local book stores and I hear a sofa calling me by the fire.

I do have to say though, I feel the presence of all of our friends and family that visited with us here this summer and fall. And with that comes a pang of loneliness. I wish we could be together all the time. But for the time being, I will settle for my precious memories of each and every one of you.
