I haven't written a post for a month...a whole month! That's the longest I've gone since I started blogging in April of 2008. And I don't even know what I've done for the last month, but here are a few highlights of things that have happened.
Back in early November my son ran his first half marathon (and came in first in his age class!) and my granddaughter ran her first 10K. I'm so proud of both of them! And I wish I had started running when I was her age because my body says, "no, not now!"
My grandson took a dive off a monkey bar when he was trying to sneak up to the front of the line - not really a suitable punishment I don't think - and had 5 staples put in his head, was a real trooper through his first CT scan, and was back to acting like a crazy monkey as soon as the pain med began to work!
I went shopping for a new chair and came home with one that I'm reserving judgement on - I didn't go looking for a recliner at all but this is what happened.
While shopping I ran across this Grinch sweater - anybody out there love The Grinch?
I started my Christmas decorating and rediscovered this little apron for the fireplace broom. It was made at least 30 years ago by a dear friend who passed away a long time ago. I treasure it.
And a sweet friend (from my high school "sisters") sent me three new violets. Today was repotting day.
I'm working on Eighth Day of Plum Street Samplers Twelve Days of Christmas so I'm a bit behind but that's okay....I still have time to finish. I think. And I've been shopping 3 times. Three! I hate shopping because I always see things I would love to have for myself and don't need at all...such a temptation. :)
