All I Want for Christmas...

Merry Christmas from my house -- lobby, actually -- to yours!

You know you're grown up when the things you'd like to find under the Christmas tree don't come in packages with shiny bows. I've gotten two of my wishes already -- good checkups at the both dentist and the ophthalmologist this month. 

Other items on my list are equally intangible, but they're the wishes of my heart. It's not a long list, but Santa -- and all of us -- will have to work overtime to make them come true.  

1) A cure for cancer

2) World Peace

3) Good health for my friends and family

4) Lastly, for my neighbors and me, a working stove and oven. I'm looking at you, NYC Department of Buildings. Santa really needs your help on this one. 

As I said, it's not a long list, but it's got just about everything I really need for 2020. My wish for this Christmas is that the intangibles in your heart become your gifts of the season. 

May your days be merry and bright!
Merry Christmas from Buttercupland

Thanks for stopping by Nanaland today Buttercup!! I love NYC even though I have never been there. It is on my bucket list. Here in the sunny south, it is 70 today but hey, I will take it!! I hope you get your oven that works...how can you bake without a dependable oven. Boo Hiss to the powers that be...may they get a heart this Christmas.:)

Thank you Buttercup for your visit and comment on our blog. Both were much appreciated as I so enjoy making new blog friends. I have enjoyed reading some of your earlier blog posts as a NJ native, your posts bring back memories of times spent visiting NYC. I plan to revisit and if it's OK with you, I would like to include your blog on my blog list for easier reference.

I do hope that you get to use your stove and oven soon as it seems like it's such a long time. Thanks for the blog visits and I enjoyed looking at the holiday sights in the city that you have posted about. Wishing you a happy new year.
