Six years later, it still hasn’t happened.
When a small child frequents your place of residence, chances are you’re going to pick up any disease they come home with, which has been the case this holiday season. Ingrid blessed us with her germs, and John and I have both been ill. Mine developed into pneumonia. Remarkably, I have continued to work, since I work from home, and have managed to wrap all the presents and get out of town presents mailed on time. Quite an accomplishment, considering everything I’ve been experiencing.
Feeling human again today. Still sniffing a little, and regrettably, I don’t think I’m going to feel like flying to Reno for our friends’ Kat and Len’s party on the 26th, but am doing pretty well and am ready for the festivities to begin!
My friend, Shannon Kringen is coming to town with her boyfriend tonight, and we’re going to listen to Rae Gordon’s Christmas show. Rae is my favorite blues singer, by far, and is always, always entertaining. After we hear Rae, we’re going to Wine-30 in Milwaukee to hear a Reno friend, Adlai Alexander, sing his incredible Brazillian jazz. Musical holidays are the best holidays!
John is going out to grab a tree this morning or tomorrow, and we’ll all decorate it later. I’m going to clean my already-clean house from top to bottom, start on my baking….oh….and work. I have to work today…..But I feel the excitement in the air. I’m happy. I’m hopeful. I’m as much in love as I ever was….. I’m ready for the new year to begin. Matters of the heart and mind are good. I am in a good place.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
Happy holidays to all my followers! In the new year, I will be taking more article requests, so please don’t hesitate to drop me a line if there is a particular topic you’d like for me to address.
As the holiday season is upon us, I’d like to remind everyone that many different cultures celebrate many different holidays. Please don’t think December is only for YOUR preferred belief system. There’s room for everyone!
Have a happy holiday, and a great beginning to the New Year! Prayers for peace. Action for peace. Think peaceful thoughts.
Feeling especially joyful and grateful this holiday season. Have been working very hard to make up for the near-month we spent in Reno, but am still trying to carve out the time to enjoy the season. I’ve been shopping and baking, wrapping and cleaning. I’ve been singing and volunteering and basically enjoying this time of year. I’ve been going to see musical and theatrical events, Christmas lights, Christmas tree lighting, Jewish Hanukkah ceremnies, a Kwanza musical…..I’m really getting into the spirit of the season.
I’m still taking my long walks every day, and as the weather gets colder, I step a little faster. It’s fun to see all the decorations
Planning to spend Christmas at home with the family this year. It should be great. However, I’ve really been bad about keeping up with my blog….but I’ll get better at that, too. I have a lot of exciting information to impart in 2019!
