It’s suddenly December and we’re into this month like no other. I wish you all safety and warmth and comfort and joy during these remaining weeks of 2013. The pace becomes more stressful and normal schedules get rearranged. At times I find the month of December a bit too much. I need to stay close to memories of my mother at times like these. I’m sure that Neva was Auntie Mame in a former life, before Rosalind Russell ever heard of the part. She loved everything about Christmas, loved to shop, decorate, host parties. Yes, I need a dose of whatever she was taking now and then.
Tonight we’ll finally decorate the tree and work on a list so that our long suffering daughter and son will have some ideas of what to get us. Tomorrow night we’ll start our own shopping. Ho ho ho!!
