Yes, it's another snowless week here in New England - December 20th and not a flake has fallen. The outlook for a white Christmas looks next to impossible as well. How can this be?
How was your week? Ours was busy but, still found time to relax and read a bit. Last Sunday was my birthday brunch with Santa and the day was extra special because we all were together. The sisters (middle and right) were cooperative and sat on Santa's lap, but the youngest granddaughter preferred to keep her distance this year.
On Wednesday evening we went to see an awesome Christmas show. The first half was music performed by (12) individuals with a 50's and 60's theme. The second half the same group performed Christmas songs, many with a rock-n-roll beat.
This week I did something I haven't done in probably 30 years - rediscovered my fondest for coloring books. I only had tome to color one page but I'm ready for more soon. So very relaxing, and, I love my new gel pens but, I was disappointed that there wasn't a dark brown one in this set.
Those of you who have begun coloring once again? Do you have any particular markers or pens you like?
We had some sad but not unexpected news yesterday. My SIL's father passed away at 98. He in his wife (95) lived alone in their condo until 18 months ago when they had to go in a nursing home - both special people.
Reading - Chris Bohjalian's, The Guest Room (so very good).
This Weeks's Plans - a wake, a funeral, making Christmas cookies, cleaning the house and food preparations for Christmas Day when everyone come's over the house.
Has a great week and a lovely Christmas.
