It started snowing mid-Dec and I think my brain started hibernating. So that's where I've been, hibernating. I was a little trapped, in rural Pacific NW, with not a snowplow in site or a 4-wheel dr. so:
I didn't leave the hill on which we have our house, until Dec 23rd, but boy did we sled it!
I didn't go to the "big city", for weeks!!! I finished up Christmas shopping locally and found some great shops. We made lots of handmade gifts - for better or worse - sorry about the toilet paper tube vases Grandma Carolyn.
I didn't send Christmas cards, I really do love you all, I do, and I wanted to, but I just didn't. I have real excuses, really... even though the US Mail is rain, sleet, snow,yada yada, I can personally vouch for some delays...and days with no mail. Then honestly by the time I still had that window after Christmas when it is still acceptable to send a card, we had a flood. Actually our town was a lake. So I gave it up for this year. Maybe I'll surprise you on St. Patrick's Day with a family card and letter to make up for it, maybe not.
I stopped doing a lot of things and did lots of playing and relaxing and had a lovely Christmas and New Years. Then snuck away last week to be with my grown-up family - AKA Mom, Dad, siblings...
I have lots to post about, so I'll be doing some catch-up, I'm just warning you there are going to be some random post-dated posts when I feel like rambling about something...
Thank you for your patience.
