The Christmas Spirit

Yesterday, the weather was mild and we ran a few errands, with our face masks and social distance guidelines in place. For years, we went to help family in other places. Dear memories. Also good to visit our local businesses closer to Christmas. We went to Good As New Thrift & Consignment Store in Cedar Grove, Wisconsin, and Karl took 10 copies of Quiet Christmas Poetry to the front desk. Many people were there and I stayed in the car. Then to Oostburg Bakery for some of their marble rye bread and Christmas cookies. On to Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly and a red poinsettia, some food for us, and they also collect for a local food pantry. There were Red Kettles for the Salvation Army there and at Walmart in Sheboygan, Wisconsin this week.
