On Monday, my daughter, Marcia Pangburn came over and we enjoyed breakfast together and visiting for a couple of hours.

Then I went and picked up the gifts I ordered which I’ll reveal after Christmas.

The roads were still very slippery especially the driveway to the Reformed Church in Berne.

We have just gone through a holiday that has many different meanings and brings to mind many different thoughts. Jim, my husband and I were reminiscing about past years at Christmas time and came up with a wide range of remembrances starting with junior high school and working up from there.

Monday rolled around again and I spent it with Danielle and Zoey.

Danielle wanted to go to BJ’s, so we took off. We dropped the news off, and then went to Wal-Mart where Danielle had seen a bookcase she wanted.

Last week I said that I would talk about some treasure hidden seven fathoms deep in the ocean. There are many documented shipwrecks around the Cayman Islands and stories about lost treasures are told to anyone who is willing to listen. 

Some are printed with maps that can help you find the treasures.

Monday, Dec. 2, I spent with my granddaughter, Danielle, and great-granddaughter, Zoey. It’s just enjoyable being with them.

We went to Wal-Mart, BJ’s, and Hannaford, nothing exciting, just groceries but Danielle was happy to stock the freezer.

My husband, Jim, and I were enjoying a bowl of oatmeal before we started out to take a journey that was somewhat familiar yet totally new. We were waiting to hear our number called to board a tender for a journey full of sights and flavors of Grand Cayman. 

There was a time, not too long ago, when we could tell some of the days of the week just by walking down the street. Monday was washday and lines would be filled with the laundry, letting the sun and wind freshen and dry the clothes.  Sounds easy but if laundry is not taken care of regularly it will build up quickly.

Have you ever given any thought to the place where people were born and what influence their background might have had on their life?

When I was a young girl growing up in Fairhaven, Mass., I was influenced by my activities that consisted of boating, swimming, riding my bike, school, church, and playing with my friends.

The holidays are here and I am learning to ask for help when I really need it.
