We changed the time.I love this time.I love the darker earlier evenings..I wake up earlier,and just want to start enjoying what I can do in a day..PARTICULARLY since the sciatica is far quieter and the elbow tendinitis is also.THANK YOU .
Above was an art tutorial for the gnome ..Jean Haines..The toadstools were added digitally.
I've started my Christmas cards.. my handmade and not hand made gifts.
Nothing affects J..time wise and Christmas preps:)
He does love to set up the tree ,adjust the lights cause let's face no -pre lit tree lasts forever so he adds the lights..I take the day to add the precious memories..
He will put the colonial candles in all the windows..
When I worked..and he was retired..I loved driving up our street in the dark and saw that he had installed the candles..It doesn't take much you don't have to be Chevy Chase..subtle ...gleaned from Vermont 100 yrs ago colonial candles in the windows do it for me.
Of course I would love a hydraulic lift to adorn our Three Pines..:) But ..
Back to our regular broadcasting;)
It's time for comfort meals and playing in the kitchen.
Playing in the kitchen is so much kinder to your body than playing in the gardens.
I am over the moon to say that although everything is not perfetto..I can walk and keep going.
That sciatica has settled into lower back mush and a zing in my calf..way better than initially..
We went to both football games..and both boys won their quarter finals.. then we went to Max's semi finals.
To say we were so happy for him is an understatement.
The most riveting exciting game ever.
Max is wide receiver..QB is C..They are great together..they know each other well practice always ..
Out of the blue at this very important game..C, the QB gets hurt and had to be carried off:(All the hopes and dreams came crushing down.Max is QB2..which means he had to become QB..and no wide receiver.
If you can believe they were losing for much of the game until 3rd quarter and Max showed resiliency..talent and such determination..that along with his team mates..they pulled it off in a tied overtime.The cheers were deafening and we all ran onto the field.
These boys..Kudos..32 F plus wind..never ever gave up.
One more game..
Although I am so proud of Max and how he pulled it off..I would love C to be back to get the team. as it should be.Because these are Cs last high school games before college and he is in 100%.M on defense was stellar..all the kids..wanted this.
I NEVER THOUGH I WOULD BE THIS INVESTED lol.
Didn't sleep so wired.
Update poor C is out for 3-6 months.
So the next and final high school game for them will be tough.
Oli's team in overtime..lost:( Poor darling) he has many more games and finals in his young life..
I applaud their parents.I mean They are TOTALLY INVESTED in all aspects of their lives.
I think those cookies could have been made in this wee cottage I spotted doing errands one day..I only wish I had my proper camera with me at the moment..I know Gignome lives there:)
The side was beyond my expectations.A very cold sunny morning.. and I found this gift.
