To: You From: Me

We arrived here in Hawaii on Wednesday afternoon, and enjoyed a day and a half of sunshine before the rain came in today. It was a beautiful day though, and we had a leisurely day eating breakfast, then putting in the Christmas turkey, followed by a late morning of opening gifts. Although I carted eleven books, yes...eleven, in my suitcase and carry on, I then received seven more today. I also received two great cookbooks. Thanks for all my wonderful books Santa! What could be better than getting books? Now I have to think about how to get them back to the mainland...

Below is a cute picture of this year's tree from this morning before the carnage began. My mother has been collecting Christmas ornaments here on the island and has quite a collection going.

Wherever you are, and whether you're enjoying a white Christmas or not, let me wish you a very wonderful holiday season.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day, Becky! Thought I was doing well with 5 new books...glad I'm not the one hauling your suitcase around ;-)
    Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

  2. Sounds like a lovely Christmas!

    I am sure you will be able to enjoy Hawaiian sunshine soon, and I must say I am a bit jealous as I sit here looking at the 10 inches of snow we have on the ground.

    Enjoy all the great reading!

  3. I am glad you had a nice Christmas, Becky! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
