Christmas week

It started off with the little kids Nativity play after church. My nephew is the confused little sheep. Speaking of sheep, they looked so cozy and content when I went down to the barn to let them out one morning. Happy boys play twister before dinner. We celebrated three birthdays two days before Christmas. Fate…

Rest

I’ve been quiet on this space thanks to a hydrops flareup last week. The past week has involved lots of pillows to help prop my head up at a comfortable angle and has meant that my computer time has been precious. Things are better than last week, but it’s been slow progress.

It wasn’t the snow that was the problem, it was all the silly people trying to drive home that were completely unprepared and all decided to…
