My fellow Pixies, the longest night of the year has come and gone, and from now on the days will keep getting longer!
Hope that whatever holiday(s) you are celebrating bring great joy!
But for any rocky moments, WW is open 24/7...
AW: Have a menu, tree is decorated, looking forward to a relaxed dinner with our kids, and son's gf and her parents!
W: There are about 400 steps between here and there, and several are cat-related items (e.g., attempt to vacuum all the cat fur). I decided to pull out the snowman dinnerware that my MIL gave us, but then it needs to be washed, and before that can happen the weekend backlog of dishes needs attention, etc.
W/AW: Visited SIL in her new and better facility yesterday. She seems comfortable there; it is very homey; her agitation is much less on new meds, and they have not made her more unsteady on her feet. Her language abilities seem to be really deteriorating, though. It's a progressive disease; her symptoms are fairly typical; but it is still sad to see various abilities slip over time. My husband is a real mensch with her.
AW: We've had ever so much rain this month, after years of drought. And BAM, the hills and fields are this fabulous emerald green that we barely remembered! My sweetie and I had a good ramble yesterday, since SIL is some distance away and in a more rural area. And we scored a delicious brunch, 2 bottles of wine for the holiday dinner, dip, salad dressing, candies for stockings, and an apple pie.
What's happening, friends?
