makes a day worthwhile

Our winter skyline tends to be blahs of grey, monochrome and 'nothing to report here'  but every once in a while we are blessed with color and light


and  this .........


definitely makes a day worth while.

two years gone

Today marks the second anniversary of my Dad's passing.  I've sat quietly this afternoon to reread my journal entries from those days.  I'm so glad that I put pen to paper.

What started unexpectedly on the morning of December 26th, 2015 concluded on January 5, 2016.  It was a very long eleven days and nights.  And then he was gone.  Gone to join Mom, his wife of 64 years.  Their last chapter's written and their life book completed.  Lives well lived.

And for us left behind, our lives go on and we move forward.  This Christmas was easier.  We adapt, make new memories and hold close treasured memories of Christmas's past. 
And we remember, with love..........

On a lighter note, Christmas decorations are safely stowed away now.  The first round of cleaning is done but glitter still glitters.....darn stuff!   The days are getting a bit longer (slowly).  The West Coast is back to 'normal' weather,  rain and somewhat mild temperatures.  For the folks getting the brunt of winter, stay safe and warm. 

2018 is off to a good start.  I've dipped into my pile of wips, and it's pick one and finish it.  Two done so far.   My gifts to give drawer is in need of restocking  so this is a good place to start.

till next time....
