Good Morning and Happy New Year!
First off, I have not abandoned all of you, I read your blogs at least once a week, so I am keeping up.
Crafting really fell off for me in the fall. I have no idea what I was doing that was keeping me so busy, but I just couldn't get into making anything.
We had a wonderful Christmas and I am loving my newest elf/Pixie that my husband got for me. He is "Sparkly" and is a 7-Up advertising pixie. I have looked at him for a couple of years in the antique store but didn't buy him because he was too expensive. I was so surprised to see him Christmas morning.
My mother in law continues to decline. Can I just say how much I HATE Alzheimer's!!! She can still do her daily basic living things like make toast for breakfast, fix a sandwich for lunch, bathe, and watches game shows most all day. We take her supper every night and make give her her medications and insulin shots each day. Our neighbor comes over once a day to make sure she is doing okay as well. The best Christmas present we had was that for 2 hours Christmas morning she was totally lucid and her usual laughing, funny self. Then she slowly slipped back into her scared and confused state. It is so sad.
I am going to try and post to my blog at least once a week. I have really missed it and want to keep it up. I have already made a couple of things since Christmas, but I can't show them until after my sister's birthday, in case she sees this post.
I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!
