Are you in the mood for a simple Christmas? In this episode, I have a phone interview with author Nancy Carey Johnson and talk about her book “The Vermont Homesteader’s Christmas Memories”. We talk about her book, homesteading, Christmas music, pets and we share heartwarming stories of family, friends, and Jolly the Christmas dog. It’s a conversation you won’t want to miss! And her book is full of many more wonderful stories.
Gracie and I have a chat about our hopes for Thanksgiving… she wants to see her Grandma and Grandpa, and I want to eat my weight in stuffing and turkey.
Then for our story, I read a couple of poems. “Christmas Carol” by Paul Laurence Dunbar, and “War Time Christmas” by World War I poet Joyce Kilmer.
