Hi Friends,

Just a note to let you know I'm alive and relatively well. I will see my Dr. tomorrow about the voice issue. At times, I can speak so that it's kind of understandable, then it's right back to squeaking and / or silence. And I'm very tired today ... so tired in fact, that I laid on the couch "just to rest" and woke up over an hour later.

We did have a good Christmas ... our youngest son & his family came for dinner & gifts. I took lots of photos, as usual. Our older son & his family came the day after Christmas as he was dealing with bronchitis and frankly, I didn't want to be around anyone who was sick.

Yesterday afternoon we did an informal gathering for those in my family who wanted to come. I had a great time with my sisters Kay & Rita. It's sad, but I don't see either of them often and one just lives in Dearborn Hgts! She's busy caring for Grand-children and has a place on a lake west of here that takes time. My youngest sister lives about an hour and a half north of us. Still, no excuse for not getting together more often. We ordered Mexican food, ate way too much, took some photos, talked and sat up way too late. Hmmm...maybe that's why I'm tired today.

I've checked on all of you and was thankful you're all well. Pat, I understand Fibro ... I was diagnosed with it years ago and you're can go for periods of time feeling just fine, than out of the blue, there it is in all it's painful fogginess. Thankfully mine isn't near as bad as it was when I worked.

Shall go for now. My love to you all.


  1. Sending my love to you and wishes for a Blessing filled New Year. It's hard to deal with these health issues sometimes, but when I stopped fighting it and just rested when I felt the need, along with the rest came peace. Lesson learned? There's a lot to be said for submission!

  2. Hi Louise,
    You had a nice time with your family.Take good rest and you 'll be fine.

    Hope your throat is better.

  3. Glad to hear that you are on the mend! I haven't seen Kay and Rita in a long while. Sisters are a blessing!
    It's sad that we don't get to spend more time with family...when and why did our lives become so hectic?
    Love you Weezy!
