    Default Hello, it's me


    Hello Folksies

    Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Lunar New Year, Salutations to all.

    Since it has once again been far too long a time since I peeked in, I thought I would this dreary afternoon. Bone chilling rain just makes me want to lie in bed with netflix, wine and chocolate. Betcha you can relate.

    Our holiday festivities were wonderful and of course, over faster than they came. Mom has been holding her own for the most part, albeit she has had bronchitis and fallen a few times. This past week, I insisted she go to the dr since she wouldn't go to the ER after her most recent fall. I was concerned about a clot or possible hairline fracture. Her little leg was as swollen and ugly as I have ever seen anything. No worries there; turns out just horrid gout and other arthritis flare up from the stress of her fall.

    Eli is studying on a crawl. He gets up on his knees and hands, rocking back and forth blowing bubbles. He will tentatively reach out an arm, fall down and pull himself where he is wanting to be. He is a professional roll about at this time. Still a very happy little chap and may I add, quite a temper or possibly just strong will.

    Now, how you may ask am I doing? Well, pert' good as my Daddy would say. I did not want to get out of bed this morning, hence the netflix, chocolate, wine wishfulness. I am normally a very early riser, as you know. I have been partying a bit the past few days with Sis over various little things that we blow up into huge celebrations. One of our celebrations being her being excused this week for federal jury duty. For two weeks I have driven her to the city and this week we don't have to go. Par tay ON! Anyway, don't let me ramble too much here, you know how we love to celebrate everything, don't you? so, last night I was feeling well into my red solo cup and didn't wash my face. I went to bed looking like a princess and woke up looking like a frog. My cousin Annie dropped by unannounced as usual. Being herself, she laughed and laughed at my appearance. After a cuppa, she went home and sent me this:

    Of course, Nick has nothing on me in the party department.

    I want to thank each of you for your emails! As you can probably tell, I have not been online to even scan my emails as often as I should. Please don't stop, I promise to TRY to improve my schedule.

    I am off to find that bag of M & M's.
