Hello everyone - welcome to the season of Winter.

While I am not a huge fan of Winter anymore, it

has become more bearable since I retired and don't

have to go out in the cold bad weather - or deal

with all the 911 calls, accidents and just hardships

that happen during this season.

I will continue the

Precious Moments 12-days

of Christmas and Christmas

rooms tomorrow.

With that being said, button up and

throw another log on the fire as I

share all the wintery things I found, and pick

the beat up with the music playing. ENJOY!


December 22—Winter Solstice
Winter begins this Thursday at 12:30 A.M. EST.
The word solstice is derived from the Latin sol,
or “Sun,” and stitium, or “stoppage.” After the solstice,
the darkest day of the year, the days will start getting
a little longer! Enjoy solstice facts, folklore, and photos!

I quote others to better express myself

Blessed are those who can give without
remembering, and take without forgetting.
~ Elizabeth Bibesco

It is only the first step that is difficult
~ Marie De Vichy-Chamrond

It's your love your friends need - never expensive
gifts or extravagant surprises.
~ Marion Garretty

We are so very rich if we know just a few people
in a way in which we know no others.
~ Catherine Bramwell-Booth

Nothing great was ever done without much enduring.
~ Catherine Of Sienna

Be beautiful inside, in your hearts, with the lasting
charm of a gentle and quiet spirit
which is so precious to God.
~ 1 Peter 3:4 TLB

If it can be verified, we don't need faith ..... faith is for that which
lies on the other side of reason. Faith is what makes life
bearable, with all its tragedies and ambiguities
and sudden, startling joys.
~ Madeleine L'Engle

Kitchen Casserole

Note from a person who has prepared this dish:
She writes, "This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes
for Christmas. I even prepare it the night before so while
we are opening our gifts, it bakes in the oven.
This way, I can enjoy what
Santa brought to our home!"
p.s. I think I would sub either sausage
or bacon for the ham - Susan K

20-oz. pkg. frozen shredded hashbrowns, thawed
4 green onions, chopped
8-oz. pkg. shredded Cheddar cheese
2 c. cooked ham, diced
1 T. green pepper, finely chopped
6 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. sour cream
1/4 c. milk

Layer hash browns, onions, cheese, ham and pepper
 in a greased 13"x9" baking pan. Whisk eggs with
sour cream and milk. Pour mixture over layered
ingredients. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for
35 minutes. Remove from oven; cover
with aluminum foil and return to oven for
an additional 10 minutes.
Serves 6 to 8.
