Holidays! Family visiting! I’d much rather sit around with them then turn on the computer.  Mom’s here until the end of the week, hurrah!  Had a lovely January First dinner at a friend’s house.  The kiddo, who went cat hunting with his new camera, behaved beautifully.  Mostly. 

Work, in which I spend much time on the computer. And the phone. Not such a great time to schedule home visits.  (Time to ramp that up.)

My grandmother died early December 26th.  Our early holidays were preoccupied with supporting mom, who sat with her for a week.  My only Mema, the most gracious and caring and humorous. 

Good holidays.  Some of everything – joy, grief, grouchiness, quiet times, loud times, good food, Pt Reyes, remodeling.

And now here we are, moving forward.  (Just wait until you hear the latest about that orange snakes sweater!)

  1. Talk about an up and down holiday — I am/was so very sorry to hear about your Mema; she sounds like she was a class act.

    Of course, now I’m dying to hear about the orange snakes — talk about a cliffhanger!

    Welcome back. I missed you. Best wishes for the new year.

    Orange snakes deserve their very own blog! Jocelyn’s right–a cliffhanger for sure.
