Yes, I realize it has been twenty days since I last posted, but to say it has been a whirlwind, would be an understatement. More like a hurricane of activities!
I now have my desktop computer back but cannot use Yahoo.....so I'm writing on the laptop still.
When I tried to go on Yahoo, it was in Russian. I worried about that all night as the hack from
Wanna Cry was from Russia, I think. The computer guy will be here next week to figure out
how to get that off and how to get me back on US. Yahoo. They would not take my password
as they said there had been unusual activity. Sheesh.
Add to that the construction of the Plaza right outside my house, down the hill, where they have
removed three fourths of the cliff, is going on in earnest. They brought the BIG machinery in a
few weeks ago.
I wish I could see a rendering of the new Plaza so I would understand all that is going on........
Eventually, we'll all know. When, is as good a guess as any.
During all this has been cookie baking time, decorating the house, a little and having Christmas.
Eve dinner. Baked ham, au gratin potatoes, English peas, corn souffle, corn bread, and cookies among other things. Yes, all was cooked in my toaster oven with the exception of the ham which
was cooked in John's oven with a glaze of dijon mustard and orange marmalade. Very, very tasty!
got new flannel pajamas.
decorated cookies for Santa. The first thing the children did when they came down Christmas morning was to make sure the carrots had been eaten along with the cookies. Along with the food, there were many notes and decorations for Santa made my Mati and Seb!
That was a wrap! In the midst of all of this, on the day that we baked cookies, Scout, the dog got out and had taken off on a little side trip. Oh my, that was stressful. Street by street we drove, no Scout. I figured someone had taken him in. Sure enough, a lovely lady named Ana had and on Christmas Day afternoon, Scout and John along with the children, were reunited. A happy, happy ending!
By then I was home and recuperating from three non-stop days. Yes, indeed, I admit I was ready to do nothing.....Period!
On to the next adventure! I know there will be one because life around here is NEVER dull.
Hope your holidays were happy, joyful and that you are looking forward to 2018, as I am
Happy New Year - 2018. WOW!
