Well, can you believe Christmas is just around the weekends end!! Hard to believe how fast December is racing on.. All settled in to my daughters home, very comfortable and quite cozy!! I set up at the end of the dining room table and here is where I sit most the time…LOL They do not have conventional tv, not even an antennae, but have Safari on the computer hooked up to the big tv screen, so I have several good places I can go from there. But mostly I am just reading of watching my shows on my laptop. And of course playing with Oscar. He is the new cat they rescued from the shelter. What a big love…and spoiled. He is so much entertainment and companionship who needs anything else.
Good to be back in California, been lucky and have had sunny days and cool nights. I have finally mustered up the courage to drive through some of the fire raged areas. So much more than you think when watching TV show it. They are busy in many areas getting it cleaned up and debris taken away so that’s a positive. But when your in the north end of town driving around, its like a battle ground.
I love that the home owners in Coffey Park are putting home Christmas trees, they even have a tractor doing hayrides around the burned out neighborhoods singing Christmas carols every night. Hopes and dreams of a new viable in the air here. Nothing but positive signs of that all around the town. lots of love from this community out there. Nice to be part of it. My daughter shared with me a list of business owners who lost there homes in the fire and are still open for business regardless, so I have been going down the list making sure I go there first to help support them. Its hard to remain positive when your around the devastation, but all you have to do is run into someone from this city and they are not looking back but forward with smiles, and joy in there hearts.
My new best friend, or grandkitty is such a love ! I thought he would be a little down with a new person in the house and a different routine. Let me tell you, he just goes with the flow…Meet Oscar – always there waiting for me and demanding a little cuddle….
Food is going ok…yes I could be better…I went overboard the first couple days, but now I am back in control…had lunch with my son today, won ton soup….yum…and will have a salad here in a minute. Tomorrow going out for Mexican with my cousin after she gets off work, so that will be good. My daughter left me all there goodies they had been getting from friends, well I just put them all in the back of the fridge and am not interested in them. I really have never been a big cookie fan…and I am taking the pepper jelly home with me. so I am trying to get back on focus and remember who and what I am trying to get healthy for. Its not all for nothing !!
I have an eye exam in the morning, a follow up…hopefully everything is the same, its for my macular degeneration, it was only in the baby stage 2 years ago and I have been taking supplements for them and wearing sunglasses faithfully out in the sun. So fingers crossed that I will get a good report tomorrow.
So I am off to go make my salad and find a movie…
Until later HO HO HO
