'Tis The Season

And so it's the Christmas season again.  I meant to post before now but time has just gotten away from me.  As with most people this time of year I guess.  Actually, I started this post several days ago but it has just sat in drafts since then and tonight, as in most nights I try to write, I just stare blankly at the screen, not sure of what to describe.  Not sure of what people really want to hear or respond to these days.
 I don't have a lot of new things to post about.  There have been a number of discoveries this year and I am working as best I can to correct or recover but not much progress has been achieved so far.  Some days I feel pretty good for a few hours and then it all crumbles into a blurry heap of fatigue and/ or pain.  I do truly expect things to improve healthwise but I think it may take a while yet.  I'll try to explain later on maybe.

This Christmas is a bit odd; it's unusually warm here, even for the South.  May be the same where you are.  We've been running around all day in tank tops and having the air going.  Feels weird baking Christmas cookies but I won't let that deter me!
Anyway, I just wanted to let the few of you still reading know that I'm still kicking! and to wish you all a very merry Christmas, happy Solstice, Joyous Kwanzaa or whatever other winter holiday you may or may not celebrate.  At any rate, I wish you all peace, love and happiness.  I'll be back before long to give a more lucid update but until then...may we all celebrate the season with those we love.  Peace.

So nice to see your (blog) name pop up on my computer. It's nice to hear what you're doing, even if it "isn't much." I'll look forward to any posts you write this coming year.

Oh, and I mean to say that that is such a lush, green header photo. And a doggie to boot.

Happy holidays, and pats to the pooch.

It's so good to hear from you! Indeed, my thoughts did turn to Annie and Jack several times lately. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Annie to you and Jack. It was nice to find this new post even if there wasn't anything new to post about cause there doesn't need to be a reason at all. And, yes, quite often I do the same thing...stare at a blank screen and try to figure out what to write. Eventually, we all find the words as you just did.

Merry Christmas!

Nice to read a few lines from you. It is hard to write these days.

Weather here is also way off for this season, very cold here tomorrow we are looking at 46 degrees for the high and not much better all week and into the New Year.

Praying for a healthier New Year for us both.

I've been far behind in reading blogs so I declared today the Day to catch up! I was SO happy to see that you posted! I used to really enjoy reading your entries, and have truly missed them since you last wrote in October.

I think you and I share a similar health issue, so yeah, I look forward to reading what's going on with you.

Write some more?

Best wishes for your Happy New Year-
Cathy in So. FL

Ugh, WAY too warm for Christmas!
I hope you had a good one and that your new year brings happiness and health!

So nice to hear from you, Annie. Christmas was very strange for us this year, with Bubba Hermit in-and-out of the hospital, Nanny in the hospital, then rehab (still there) and memories of our Dad passing on Christmas Eve, 1969. I was running six ways from Sunday, and spending some time enjoying 5 year-old gs Henry, so I'm actually glad to be back at work and in a routine! It's count-down time for me - starting on Wednesday. Just one more year until I retire, or at least I hope so.
Blessing to all, and please know that we are always glad to hear from you - even if it's just to know you're still kicking!
Prayers that you will find your peace and ease from pain in 2016.
