I'm slicing with the Two Writing Teachers community today. It's always a pleasure to read what everyone writes about their lives.
For those who celebrated, hoping your family was fun, and your feast a feast, no matter what you served.
I am still sad and worried about the election result, am reading and doing what I think I can to keep things I believe are important for all Americans. I've signed petitions, sent messages, donated to certain groups. There is so much to take in, and much to be sure I'm aware of.
And, I continue to live my life, work at the bookstore, have lovely times with family, including the grand-girls. Ingrid spent two days last week with me and I helped her shop for family members. She was given a certain amount of money and had to plan well to be able to afford gifts for each person. I shopped too and had Ingrid help me choose some of my gifts also. We had an early treat at Starbucks, and late lunch, then went home to spend the rest of the afternoon and evening wrapping. It was a joy of a day. The next day we woke to light snow, stayed home and I helped Ingrid write some poetry and create some turkey place cards for our Thanksgiving. Among all the other things I do to create a good life, I will always put the grandchildren first. FYI, after these two days, Ingrid and I picked up Imogene from school and spent the rest of the day playing and going out for dinner. And, one evening last week I had a good phone call from Carter. It was a nice 'grandchild' week!
