I Saw Three Ships...

I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing in,
On Christmas Day,
On Christmas Day,
I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing in,
On Christmas Day in the morning...

Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season filled with love and peace, joy and laughter.

I took this pic at the end of November on my walk around the yacht club. It was a cold and chilly day, but the sun was shining, making for a pleasant stroll. While looking out at the lake, I was quite surprised to see not only one sailboat, but three!! Who would be out on the water this time of year? Someone who doesn't mind a freezing wind whipping in their face - that's who! That Christmas song about "3 ships come sailing in" popped into my head, so I saved this pic to post now - along with the first verse of the song.

I was very disorganized this year and left everything to the last minute. Caught up in a swamp of baking, shopping, babysitting, and other responsibilities, I've hardly had time to sit down.

As well, my computer has been on the fritz for most of December. I'm not sure how much longer it will last - but such is life. Will get back to visiting and blogging after Christmas.

Thank you to all you wonderful friends who have emailed or stopped by to see how things are with hubby and me. We're fine. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness.

Wendy, a perfect photo for the Christmas song! I know exactly what you mean about not sitting down-working full time for the first Christmas in years has proved to be almost more than I can manage. :) But I am off now until the 4th!! And have finally gotten most of the preps done.

Weshing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year! Hugs!!

Wendy, I have been thinking about you and wondering how you and Hubby have been doing, even though I didn't take the time to e-mail you. Glad to know it's just been the holiday rush and a temperamental computer that's kept you away for a little while. Great photo for this Christmas song--it's nice to see a blue sky for a change, too:)

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and time to sit down and enjoy your family!

I'm glad I'm not sailing on one of those three ships, I think I'd be a bit chilly out there on the water!
Wendy, I'm sending you best wishes for a happy Christmas surrounded by friends and family.... and I sincerely hope that 2010 brings good health and happiness to you and your dear husband.
