I've been away ...

... and I'll be away for a bit longer, probably into the new year. I have been helping two ladies with the loss of their husband; one is across the street from me, and the other is a wonderful best friend back in the Boston area. I would so like to be able to go to her, but that won't be possible until April to move her out here to be with me in Oregon. In the mean time we talk on the phone a lot and email almost daily. I hope it helps her to know that I'm here ...

I'm only half way done for Christmas and hopefully will be able to get things done in the next 9 or 10 days. I'm hoping really, really hard!! There are a few decorations up, but I haven't had time to decorate much just the special things..

I will take pictures of the gifts I'm making, but doubt I will be able to post them until the beginning of next year - hopefully you will still be interested. I miss posting, but this year has been very hap-hazard and I hope to keep you all posted of what is going on in my corner of the world.

Hugs to all

This calls for ((hugs)) dear friend.
Merry Christmas! And thank you... your kindness is making this a better world for us all.

I'm sure both of your friends count you as a complete blessing in their losses. Hope your Christmas and New Years were happy one's.
I've been very haphazard with my blogging this past year to and hope to step it up just a bit in 2012. It's funny how you miss it...and the friends we have made.

Thinking of you.
I hope your absence is due to great loads and heaps of goodness. It's already summer... my, oh my!
