I hope this Holiday season will be as good to you as it is to our family. In a few days the year will end and make way for the New Year. I can't complain for this year has been good to us even though we had minor hiccups along the way. I got to go and visit my family in the Philippines last July. That was the highlight of my year, the second was the day my husband came out of his car accident with very minor injuries. My girls are healthy and striving, my marriage is still going strong. Its a bittersweet feeling to bid year 2010 adieu , but we have to more forward for change is the only constant in the world.

I made a special trip to the hardware store yesterday to do some Christmas shopping. Before I left, I made sure to set myHome security alarm. It took me about an hour to get over to the store I wanted and I had one thing on my list to get. My mother has been wanting a clay chiminea for awhile now. A chiminea is basically a little stove or bonfire that sits outside. She wants one so that she can relax on her patio and roast some marshmallows in the fire. It sounded like a great idea, and when I found out that the hardware store had them in stock I ran over there as fast as I could.
I made my way into the store and it was jam packed full of people who were doing their holiday shopping. I'm actually surprised they had the chiminea I wanted in stock. In fact, they only had one left. It came to about one hundred dollars and I made my way back to the store. The lines were ridiculous, but I thankfully got on a short one and was paid and out of there within only a few short minutes. I made my way to the car and loaded the chiminea into it. I came home and had to find a good hiding place for it. I'm sure my mom is going to love it come Christmas.
