Moving Right Along . . .

This morning I've forgotten every last bit of my best blog ever. I wrote it in my mind during the night and morning caused it to disappear into a haze. (I think an elf stole it.) Now I sit here trying to think of something clever to write and my mind just won't cooperate. Oh well, it probably wasn't that great anyway. Moving right along . . .

Every surface in this house is a mess. I have to face the grocery list and "git 'er done." Gifts are ready to wrap. That will be an easy process this year. I had a cold (just a regular old garden variety, 'notty nose cold) last week and it slowed me down. I'm fine again - time to "move right along . . .

Our Sunday gathering was a bit different the last two weeks. Two Sunday's ago I was running fever so gathering day was cancelled - I didn't want to spread the bug. Last Sunday we gathered earlier than usual because some of the kids had "other" commitments. We really had fun. The boys (big and little) played a form of touch football in the back yard. James had a whistle and was the referee. It wasn't a quiet game so I'm sure the neighbors noticed. Maybe next time they'll join in. I made a big pot roast with veggies and had sponge cake for all who ate "the good stuff." I almost can't wait for Christmas day. It will be so much fun to watch the boys discover the contents of their bags and boxes. I'll try to make pics if I can get Harry's super-duper camera to work for me.

Tomorrow is my hair fixin' day. I haven't had a real hair re-do in almost a year. When I was sick it was just beyond my capability to sit for hair maintenance. I had Mary keep it cut short. It was easy to keep my hair clean but other than that nothing much happened. Tomorrow ends that! Wheeee! Mary has ALWAYS been such a wonderful support for me.

For someone who had a blank mind I've written a lot. Nothing clever - just routine "Life at the House of Two Old Farts." Nana and Papa on their computers, kitty asleep on my desk, the reefs purring, and a quiet life filled with family and friends - our simple needs are fulfilled. So many blessings - we're thankful for each and every one.

Thank you for stopping by and for continuing to be my blogging friends.

I want an old fart life too. In about 20 years. I like the mundane. Family. Friends. Nice people. Casual. I hope you had a great holiday Mary.
