Merry Christmas from lost blogger

December 2015 – I’ll admit I’m discombobulated (sp?), but who wouldn’t be with a funeral, Disneyland, and Christmas all in the same week.

WARNING:  this blog may not make sense….random thoughts never do, except in the mind of the speaker.

Last night, three of the young cousins (to each other) were all three together for the first time.  It was a joy to watch them play and run around, each keeping an eye on the others, observing what each was doing.  Now Ages: 3 1/2, almost 3, and 18 months.

We had a funeral for my mama.  It was the end of a very long goodbye, from Alzheimer’s, over 10 years.  It was her time, but there is still a lost part of my heart.  mom  What a beauty!  Lots of family showed up, so it became a reunion.  Love you mom!

My dog is very old…over 18 human years.  Not sure what that is in dog years?  Anybody know?  The formula use to be 7 dog years for every human year and that would make my dog 126 dog years old.   I think there is a new formula now….

Disneyland:  Yes, I went on Space Mountain (roller coaster in the dark).  My favorite was “It’s a Small World”.  Love the human ingenuity!  Two of the little cousins were there.

I’m wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and my best wishes for hope, peace and love in the New Year.

My book recommendation  from 2015 is Katie Couric’s The Best Advice I Ever Got: Lessons from Extraordinary Lives.

TOAST:  Here’s  to lots of beautiful sunrises and sunsets in 2016!

P.S. Couldn’t find discombobulated in the dictionary.  Anybody know the correct spelling?  LR

    Merry Christmas to you, my creative friend! “discombobulated” is the correct spelling. 🙂 Looking forward to some plein air painting in 2016! Warm hugs, M
