Two Cents Tuesday Challenge: Wishes – Week 2

christmas wishes

for friends everywhere

And so another Christmas Eve is upon us. Did we get all that we had hoped to accomplish done, make everything as perfect as we had envisioned or perhaps cut back, refine, rediscover those simpler things that we had lost sight of? As we celebrate over the next few days our hope is, as always, for a most excellent coming year for everyone – Best Wishes for Health and Happiness –  the rest is just icing on the cake!

This fortnight’s Two Cents Tuesday Challenge theme – Wishes – is simple, it is whatever you want it to be. “What are your wishes for the coming year?” – Peace on earth, good will to men, more fun, more sun, more hours in the day like way back when, less noise, no batteries in toys, clear sailing or a new adventure …  We would love to see your vision.

For all those who are new readers to Across the Bored, some great entries and the guidelines for this fortnight’s challenge can be found here. Need more info or want to browse past themes? Have a look at HOW DOES THIS WORK.

    Lovely old-fashioned card! I’m puttering around today, getting out Thanksgiving leftovers (frozen) and plan to make “snacks”–hot artichoke dip, quite yummy. And maybe a rum punch would be nice…maybe I’ll cut the fruitcake at midnight. I’ll toast you with a slice, how ’bout that?!! Merry, Merry Christmas to you and my fam there! love, sis Caddo

        Ohhhh, wish you could have heard me gasp and say, “I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it”. How incredibly beautiful–how did you do it, and am I to have it for my own? Very misty-eyed now, so touched.

        I’m so glad you managed the I-L dinner, and I’ll look forward to the recipe–thanks for the reminder, as I’d all but forgotten my fruitcakes in the bedroom window!

        Thank you for the lovely gift–it slips my mind what that’s called; calligraphy, yes–but the coloured foil artistry, what’s the name for that? I’m old and feeble…as well as totally blown away.

          Illuminated manuscripts – that’s the thing! It is all for you – your words were so very lovely and inspiring they deserved to be showcased! Thank you for all the love and support and for being there when I needed it! Here’s a very merry holiday wish to you from your crotchety sister out east!!!


          • Caddo says:

            I was close–my mind kept saying, “Illuminati”…. And I’m snickering this morning about “crotchety sister”, as the only way that “condition” is bearable, is when we find someone we can safely be crotchety with! We’re having a lovely, sunny Christmas day here in the Pac NW–I hope that, whatever the weather, you’re feeling His blessings in abundance–Merry, Merry Christmas!!
