Feeding fish and turtles. I loved to see the real big turtles. This one is having a nice time sunbathing.
You never knew what would be around the next bend in the path. Every walk had special memories.
I enjoyed looking at these photos. Hope you did too.

My Retail Reality....By Thinking of My Favorite Things I Kept from becoming the Grinch this Christmas....
I love it, and it made me think....I did it, I did not become a grumpy Grinch at Christmas. I enjoyed the season despite the stress of working in a retail store. I survived lines that were too long, multiple call outs, being pulled in 5 different directions, shifts changes that are crazy, working without breaks or lunches, and computers breaking down.. without coming home and being grumpy and cranky with my family.
Christmas came and I had a wonderful day with my family and got this beautiful present.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too.

The stockings are hung, but I have yet to wrap any presents. Christmas eve I think my job will be to wrap things, I'm hoping I'll have the energy and enough wrapping paper.
I have not sent all my Christmas cards out...I have not baked the cookies, I did eat all the peanut butter cups that were supposed be part of the cookies...
So if you ask if I'm ready for Christmas....The answer is no....But in thinking about it...I am ready for Christ.
If Christ knocked on my door....I would be able to stop and visit...I would be ready to listen to him and not worry if my house looked good enough or not.
I'm ready to begin a new year, to focus on learning more about my Savior and becoming closer to him...I am ready to be a "Mary" instead of a busy "Martha". I'm looking forward to building up the people I work with, and caring for my family and friends. I'm ready to go to the Temple often and to find ways to spread peace and Joy.
So I may not be ready for Christmas this year....But I know I'm ready for Christ....And isn't that really what matters?
