The Best Plans.....


Don't always work out. Case in point: Our plan was to have a fabulously quiet Christmas Day with our daughter Liz and her boyfriend, Casey; Anne and her former husband, Tom. So far, so good. It was a great day - quiet, peaceful, warm, cozy and fun! Then I got sick. I lasted until dinner was done, then headed for bed and stayed there all day Friday.

The next part of the plan was to have my entire family over on Saturday, the 27th (also my birthday) for our huge family Christmas celebration. I was too sick. So, my wonderful sister-in-law, Kathy, hosted Christmas at her house. And everyone had a great time! Except me. I spent the day home in bed.

So, here it is Sunday and I'm pretending I'm fine. Anne and I even went to an antique mall today. I am truly exhausted. I've been putzing around my studio, trying to get something accomplished, but it just isn't happening. So, I took a few random photos. And now I guess I'll head up to the house and to bed. Night!

Happy belated birthday. You have the same birthday as my favorite aunt. If I gave you a present for your special day, you can guarantee it wouldn't be wrapped in Christmas paper! I hope you're feeling better soon.

Oh that's too sad to be sick on Christmas Day and through your own birthday! I hope you'll soon feel fully recovered ... and maybe enjoy a bit of post-birthday celebration? :)
