Meanwhile, it's getting very cold here in New England and Angus and Rosie are hunkering down.
Rosie loves her new catnip toy,
but also buries herself in a fluffy throw when the weather is cold.
Angus always seems to be deep in thought,
and hides on a dining room chair, under the table, where he sleeps away the day.
My little Christmas cactus is starting to bloom, reminding me of my mom.
I have to confess that a feeling of sadness has settled around my shoulders lately.
My older sister is in a nursing home with dementia, and I'm witnessing her losing more
and more of her grasp on reality, and any desire to take care of herself.
Her type of dementia has made her hostile and angry, but fortunately the hostility
is lessening. She has no interest in doing anything, and I do what I can when I visit
to make her laugh and bring her some joy. It's very difficult to see her this way, and I
can't help feeling a bit helpless
So, I have to listen to my heart and not put pressure on myself right now.
I'll be creating, but at my own pace.
Hopefully I'll be more "up" for AEDM next year!
Thanks, dear friends, for reading -
Hope you're having a good week!
