A Peaceful Evening With Friends and Family

Merry Christmas to you and your sister!

Here are the lyrics to the song "Waiting for my Dearie"

“Many a lassie, as everyone knows, will
Try to be married before twenty-five.
So, she’ll agree to most any proposal,
All he must be is a man and alive.
I hold a dream, and there’s no compromising,
I know there’s one certain laddie for me.
One day he’ll come, walking over the horizon.
But should he not, then an old maid I’ll be.

“Foolish, you may say. Foolish I will stay.
Waitin’ for my dearie, and happy am I,
To hold my heart till he comes strolling by.
When he comes, my dearie, one look and I’ll know,
That he’s the dearie I’ve been wanting so.
Though I live forty lives till the day he arrives,
I’ll not ever, ever grieve.
For my hopes will be high, that he’ll come strolling by,
For you see, I believe.
That there’s a laddie weary, and wandering free,
Who’s waiting for his dearie, Me!”

That food looks good! Did you make it?

I've heard of Stepping Heavenward.I have read good reviews of it on other blogs.Aunt Jane's hero is also another good book by Elizabeth Prentiss.A similiar book that I have also read good things about is Mother by Kathleen Norris.

Thanks for the lyrics to the song.

No I did not make all of the food. I helped make the platter of cookies. :)

Hmm.. I've never heard of an of those books.

Have you ever read the Chronicles of Narnia? Or the Elsie Dinsmore Series?
