Merry Christmas

Christmas being the celebration of the birth of Christ makes it an important day in many religions.  I hope all who celebrate Christmas remember  why it is being celebrated.

Bill and I are going to go visit our little adopted family today.  I must take food for Bill to eat, because his Gallbladder needs to be removed after the holidays.  So instead of all the great foods that will be offered today he will have mashed potatoes, peas that I will thicken the juice so he can use them as gravy and some gelatine.  If they have venison he may have some of that as long as it is a shoulder as it doesn't have much fat.

Need to get going, as I need to get things ready.

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate.  To everyone else I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy your family and friends.

Dad's Birthday

Today was my Dad's Birthday and he had a visitor in the nursing home. Layne is the 9 month old son of a very special family we have "Adopted" since our families live in other states.  This was Lanye and his 16 year old step sister's first visit with Dad.

I am mad at myself.  As I was leaving work today I was informed that I would be layed off or is it laid off at least until mid to late January.  I was shocked, but not really upset, by being layed off and forgot to visit Dad before going home.  I will see him tomorrow.  I guess he will just need to forgive me.

While I was driving the 18 miles home I was trying to decide what I wanted to do to help generate some more money.  Since it is winter and I need to get back to my quilt pattern designing, testing and launching them to get my business going again.  I will be offering some free patterns right here and announcing new patterns.  Actually I have many patterns ready, I just need to review them and maybe make a new sample. 

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
