Well, it's the day after Christmas- and I will have to admit- It's been a strange one.
I am in sunny Florida plowing through my parents overly stuffed house. The last time I worked this hard was when my own house burned down several years ago. I made spaghetti for Christmas dinner. I got off easy. I usually cook for a week. My mother and I had dinner on the porch that I spent several days cleaning out and it was indeed pleasant- dinner that is!
I've heard from many of my Michigan friends and hope they all had a nice holiday.
My dad is in a nursing home and has moments of lucidity but maintains his sense of humor. Good thing. I think these homes are sad places. My friend, Sue said that everything that you need for a nursing home can be put into one shopping bag- She's correct.
I will probably be in Florida a while longer and then return to my beads and the great frozen north.
I miss my dog!
ps- it's wonderful to be so dam anonymous on the internet!!!
