Weihnachten steht vor der Tür!

Finally, I am getting those Christmas cards done today:)! and they were done -at about 5:30 Wednesday morning (with a little break for bell choir), answering e-mails and other things. Tomorrow they go to the Post Office! The sky alternates between very overcast and sunny and windy, but it’s getting cold – hasn’t done this…

Hey where are the hot flashes?

Boy was it cold today! Had court in the morning and thought I could get by with just my blazer, which was not very bright on my part. For some reason, the cold really got to me today. All I could think about was how last year at this time, come hell or high water,…

How I spent my weekend:)

Well, after Friday night, everything pales in comparison. Saturday, I was barely at home. Was up Friday night until about 3 AM – it’s the only time lately I have time to knit! Was up Saturday after a wee sleep-in and out the door by 10:30. Visited two clients in Taneytown, back to Essex to…

Night at the Washington National Cathedral

The music was superb, the architecture breathtaking, the company wonderful! I wish I could put in one picture what this holy place means to me. But I cannot. So I will be silent and let the smiles of dear friends testify for me. +

Quick note before knitting:)

Yes, I’m about to sit and knit for about an hour before getting ready for this evening’s festivities. I will probably be bringing a bottle of wine or some gourmet coffee or something, to so I have to get on the road. Not much to chat about since I last wrote late last night. Court…

The Season is Fast Upon Us

And I am not ready! It does feel closer to Christmas after choir rehearsal tonight. We ran through the Christmas Eve Service music and we actually weren’t half bad (except for going about a full tone south – arrgghh). I’ve decided to give it all my full concentration and to just do the best I…

Tuesday, but Ruby was with Pop

The above represents my trip to the reaches of western Merlin today. I went all the way past Flintstone, but missed saying Hi to Fred and Wilma. Seriously, though, there were some very foggy moments on the road – so much so that I had to rely on the lines on the pavement to keep…

A Grey Quiet Sunday

Which is fine by me – I will miss the usual Sunday dinner with the granddarlings, but their mom is working the night shift tonight and, come to think of it, so is John. So, we’ll probably do something quick for dinner for three or four of us, depending on who is home and call…

All things revealed

well, some of them, LOL! I wish my cell phone camera could show you the vibrancy of these colors! My Secret Pal sent me an embarrassment of riches. Yesterday was a repeat of the dreary cold and wet weather we’ve been having. It’s almost eerie how both of her beautiful packages have arrived bringing color…

Snow Snow Snow Snow SNOW

White Christmas? Not necessarily, but yesterday was a bit of a surprise. I mean, the weatherwoman said it was going to snow, but I never believe them, LOL. After court yesterday morning, I high-tailed it home. The Beltway was only just starting to show signs of orneriness (good Lord, is that a word?) and I…
