I've been missing in action, I know, but my "new" camera will no longer allow me to download my photo's..and I haven't been able to figure out what is wrong and the manual and even phone calls to Samsung, isn't getting me anywhere..
...since I cannot share any of my photo's ...  I'll just do the best I can.
I took this picture of my favorite coffee pot before my camera stopped working. I am trying to get our home decorated for Christmas.  The tree I ordered online arrived on Friday..and I am SO pleased!  It's just beautiful and I will do it again next year.  

Hopefully I will get my camera problem figured out and be back.

 We...finally have our wet you may have heard on the news.  When we get rain...we REALLY get rain.  It's called the Banana Express..since it comes from the direction of Hawaii.  
More later.  Please don't give up on me.  I'm just slow..and computer and camera problems leave me confused and flustered.

To be honest...I'm fighting the Christmastime blues...the 15th at 3:30 in the morning is the anniversary of Patrick's death. It does get easier as the years pass. It never goes away but it's bearable.

I know this time of year can be a delight..and usually is for me...but things are not always lovely and we can only cope.  Decorating and visiting your blogs is a huge help when I can't sleep and my mind won't turn off and I wonder at my loss.
I also wonder at my good fortune that I've been able to keep going.  Others have suffered worse.

Sometimes I give up and take a's just an aspirin with Codeine but it helps a lot.
So..that's it. :)

In spite of it's really been a nice December.  I must remember to be thankful that we are together, at least most of us.  With a family as large as's nearly impossible now.
Yes..I must remember to be grateful!

More rain this week?  Maybe..
