Hello! How are you all? I am recovering from a malady known as "TOO MUCH". I have to giggle as I write this because it's rather silly. However, I think some of you might agree with me. Do you feel that we are being bombarded with falling asteroids? They all have names: Virus(es), Vaccine, Restriction, Media, Chaos, Nervous Breakdown, to name a few. I am so looking forward to a time when my biggest anxiety will be finding the right person to take care of Mom so I can go home for the Summer.
As for Mom, I am at a standoff with her over getting the Covid vaccine. She is refusing to get one. She was supposed to see her doctor on the 14th but is saying she's not going. On the evening news she heard something about side effects the other day and she has grabbed on to that tidbit like an anchor to use as an excuse but the real reason is she doesn't want to leave the house.
So, what have I been up to? In keeping with my desire to be more productive in 2021, I have started not one but two of this doily pattern. I am challenging myself outside my comfort zone with this one. I have a huge supply of number 10 Cebelica thread. My eyes are not going to get any better than they are right now with my Macular degeneration so it's time to " bite the bullet" as they say. The pattern is called "Rozita".
I am doing one in ivory and one in green. So far so good. I am doing the center flowers at the moment.
I have taken advantage of our 38 degree weather to drive down the Island to do the pharmacy and food run. Not many people about. Lots of snow and ice around. I took my camera but didn't see anything that struck my fancy. Very blah scenery and uninspiring. I will dip into my archives and see what I can come up with. I am not good at identifying hawks so if anyone can identify it please leave a comment.💖
I have just finished reading " A Beautiful Blue Death" by Charles Finch and am now reading his "The September Society". If you like books set in the late 1800's you will probably like Charles Finch's books about his detective, Charles Lenox, a Victorian gentleman, and his next-door neighbor, Lady Jane. These Kindle books are a departure from my usual budget-priced or free books I read on Kindle Unlimited but sometimes I like to read what others have recommended.
My happy mail today is not so much an indulgence but a necessity. The medication that Roger sent on the 3rd of December, Priority mail, finally arrived! Now I am waiting for his Christmas present to arrive. I admit to being excited and watch for the mail lady every day.

Take good care everyone,
