It's a lovely time of year - Thanksgiving is over and Christmas hype is weeks away. (Around here Christmas/New Year is barely a weeklong affair. Period.) Time to catch up on housework, paperwork, and spending some quality time with a bloated DVR from months of program capture.
We've been having some spectacular night skies what with Venus, Jupiter, Mars, the Moon and even a comet to grace early morning risings. And when the sun does come up (late, oh so late this time of year) the skies are magnificent.
Inside, the kitchen window is already hosting something green - a celery heel is sprouting new leaves for January soups.
And downstairs, the saved geraniums, black & blue salvias, a dozen English lavender seedlings and some schefflera cuttings are snug under lights for the season.
So while I try to adjust to this years time change (boy, it's been hard this go 'round), I'm doing as little as possible.
Still taking mom to PT 2ce a week and that makes for a good excuse for some good coffee time after. She was encouraged to re-up for a whole year so we can go as weather permits this winter. That way she doesn't lose all that she's gained and have to start over again in Spring. Beside, at 91 she's quite pleased to be told how she's an inspiration to other seniors at the center. Fact is, she's really enjoying the machines and how she's been feeling these days.
Otherwise, I'm hanging in there - just on the down-low right now. Hope y'all are getting a chance to kick back before the holiday rush. Take care. Back soon.
