Wrapping up Christmas

With both our children here with their families, this will be a special, memorable Christmas.  I am taking time out from kitchen duty, vacuuming and present wrapping to let friends who visit here at my little blog know that all is well. 

It seems I wasn’t the only one needing last minute gifts.  The stores were busy this afternoon.  All except Lowe’s.  Either we hit a lag or people aren’t starting a remodel project right now.

I received an email informing me that ToysRUs is staying open all night tonight.  Last minute shoppers have a friend there.

I ordered a gift for my friend Kayzie who lives in Arizona a few minutes ago.  Amazon says she will receive it in five minutes.  There is only one catch for this last minute speed shopping to work.  The recipient must have a Kindle ereader.

Well, I’m going to enjoy a hot cup of tea and then back to lovely preparations.

Sadness in our family

My Mom passed away this afternoon.  She was 95 and physically in good health although suffered from Alzheimer disease.  She was a special person and will be missed by all who knew her.

I won’t be posting for a few days.  Her obit should be in the Abilene paper on Tuesday.  Her first name is Fern.
