Anyway, before I let it all go for the year, I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite ornaments and what they mean to me.
|old Santa ornament from our tree when I was young|
|daughter's horse that she lost to colic|
|favorite tea cup ornament|
|favorite wine ornament|
|First grandchild's ornament|
Probably a bit silly and nostalgic...
We have an ornament for each grandchild (4) and one for each cat that was part of our house-hold for years. Rose got picked for this post as she was the oldest (23). Goliath (the horse ornament) was my daughter's Friesian, a huge giant of a horse that stole her heart.
There are others of course but I didn't want to bore you. Six is enough.

Made these the other day. Saw someone make them on the food network and thought - easy! Yes, it was easy, but they don't come out of the pan easy. The chocolate seeps through - which makes the bottom messy. But they did taste good!
That's my bit for today. Quick update on Julie: She's hanging in there. Not much change, but she eats (or tries to) fairly well, has no other symptoms, takes her steroids fine. We're adding a liquid antibiotic today to see if that might help. Thanks for all your good thoughts and prayers.

And as always, thanks for coming by. Hope 2020 is treating you well so far...
Today he says (I'm paraphrasing of course) that a cup of coffee or tea when we wake up... and no food until about 10 or 11. Then he recommends no food (or not much) after 7 pm. He says that if most of our intake is within those 8 hours, it is best for our bodies. What do you think? I mostly eat this way anyway... so it works for me.
