Another year of being invited to a morning brunch.
A business with huge silos, they buy grain in this area from farmers
and ship all over the world. At this time in history
I would say a very profitable business.
Do not like to venture out often but made myself go
for this friend. Tasted nothing but enjoyed the punch made
with eggnog, peppermint ice cream and a little seltzer water.
Going to reproduce and not add the water. Since I struggle
with weight this may add a pound to this slight frame.
Always a gift as we leave and thought the container was
cheerful. Looks like a large candy cane and filled with cookies
each individually wrapped in bright red and green foil.
Returning home the mailman came down the long gravel drive with a number of
small packages. A book daughter from Florida recommended and was
able to buy used at a fraction of original price and looks new
"Rules of Civility" by Amor Towles.
Something to add to the growing stack of books for a snowy day.
A can of spray you dust with and I wonder do I chance using on computer,
clocks and a few other items. Still trying to decide to keep or return.
Inexpensive 8 x 10 tarpaulin to place on windows of
truck on these frosty mornings and when or if snow arrives.
An envelope with gift of small Tibetan prayer flags enclosed. They always
bring about a sense of Peace when I view them and I thought where do I put them?
Since they were paper I placed them on the lamp on computer work area.
They are a constant reminder to me of my son in that far away land.
Christmas cards received from many you
do not hear from often.
I was going to send very few this year - but found myself addressing
many to just keep in touch.
Another daughter called and shared my son sent a gift for me to her home and she
will deliver Christmas Day. I guess he knows I would open immediately :)
this causes anxiety. Always independent and no one near to ask. I replaced in the past
but cannot figure it out at the moment. Need to let it be....
So much about the computer that I do not know and will wait
until family arrives Christmas Eve for them to help me.
Phone was ringing
could not find it
there it is
in my pocket.
Dropped a pair of glasses
and just stepped on them.
A caller shared about someone my age being lonely.
Cannot understand this
My to do list is long and I will never catch up.
To busy and to many interests to be lonely.
and could hear my son's voice
saying "pace yourself"
