    Default Just for fun...

    I just had to share these photos of my daughters cat. They stayed with us over the holiday and Rue loved our tree.

    Mary Grace ~

    Thank you so much for sharing these adorable photos of Rue, who obviously decided that she is a Christmas ornament! I'm just glad that she could get in and out of the tree safely without toppling it.

    Our Cocker Spaniel thought that the skirt around the tree was a blanket for her. Once she established that, it was, of course, her blanket. She had a bed upstairs and downstairs, and often slept on our bed, but that Christmas tree blanket was special to her. Perhaps it was her way of telling us that she was our Christmas gift every year she was with us. And she certainly was.

    I'm so glad that you have these happy memories from your holidays.

    Please post more photos from your holidays and your birthday!

    Many prayers and lots of love to you and your beautiful family ~

    Love & Light,



    Rose

    Beautiful photos! I'm amazed that any Christmas tree can survive a cat's interest but your kitty seems to be getting along very well with the tree--even IN the tree.

    Lovely tree too!

    Rose, rue loved sitting under the tree as well. She messed up some lights and knocked off some ornaments but she loved it so much and it just seemed natural for her to be in the tree I couldnít let that bother me lol. We did have the tree tied up. Ever since our very first tree together which fell over as soon as we got it decorated we tie our trees to the wall.
    Agate, thank you! Rue was right at home inside the tree.
    Thought Iíd include a few pictures of what weíre doing to keep busy.

    A couple of projects, a minion gingerbread house and a fluffy penguin that Kathleen named Paul. We bought her a stomp rocket to get outside and be active. Itís great and works on her balance a bit. Iíve been looking into getting her an under desk cycle that she can use sitting in a chair. Thereís so many out there I need to do a little research.
    On a positive note one of Kathleenís community habilitation workers will be getting the vaccine and hopefully be able to work with Kathleen safely soon.
    Wishing you all happiness and good health
    P.S. a really lovely sunset across the street from our house!

    Great photos as always! Love the gingerbread house and Paul. Gorgeous sunset! I love sunsets.

    I bought Jim an under the desk cycle from Amazon. I looked at the various ones and read the customer comments to make my choice. Unfortunately, he never had a chance to use it.

    About the COVID vaccine ~

    Today, I watched an interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta by Stephen Colbert. Dr. Gupta stated that the COVID vaccine will not prevent people from getting COVID. The vaccine is designed to reduce the severity of symptoms, if one gets COVID. This might result in more people, who are COVID positive, being asymptomatic but still contagious.

    For this reason, masks, hand washing and social distancing continue to be necessary.

    I did a little search, and I found this interview with Dr. Fauci from October 2020, in which he states the same thing:

    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/fauci...195051568.html

    If I heard or read this previously last year, I can't recall it, but that's not unusual for me these days. To me, it was a little surprising, as I thought a vaccine was intended for prevention, not reducing symptoms. Evidently, the immediate need for the COVID vaccines meant that they would only lessen the impact of the virus.

    So, we should all be cautious in our interactions with others, as if they didn't get the vaccine, even if they did.

    The roll out of the vaccines has been pathetic. Far fewer Americans have been vaccinated than was anticipated at this point. We have a long way to go.

    Here's a terrifying fact I heard on the news today: Every 33 seconds, someone dies from COVID.

    Let us all remain vigilant about protecting ourselves and each other. Everyone in the country has to commit to: No Super Bowl parties, Valentine's Day parties, St. Patrick's Day parties, Spring Break, Easter gatherings. When I see planes flying over my home, I think,"That is a COVID and every other infectious disease super spreader."

    Our state's slogan is: "Stay home. Save lives."

    So, I'm sorry, Mary Grace, to tell you this, as I know you want Kathleen's community habilitation workers to return. I know Kathleen needs their assistance too. But, it may not be safe for quite awhile.

    I send you my love, prayers and deep appreciation to you for sharing your wonderful family with us. You have a fantastic imagination and so much creativity. Kathleen is always smiling and joyful. My hat is off to you, dear friend!

    Prayers, hugs, positive, healing energy on the way for all of our friends here and your loved ones ~

    Love & Light,



    Rose

    Rose thank you! Kathleen loves her crafts! She especially loves to paint and do word searches. She loves cooking too. Today we made blueberry waffles and pancakes to freeze for her breakfasts. Last week we made sugar cookies.
    Thank you for all your input. I always always appreciate your input for sure. I know your input is always well thought out and researched. It does remind me that for sure this is NOT a complete fix and protection. I need to make sure we are still taking all the precautions that we have been. We plan on doing hopefully some short outdoor things with a mask. I agree we will not be safe for a while. Being outside seemed a bit safer but still needs distancing even then. I'm hoping we will have some days scattered throughout the winter months that will allow a little time outside. We're also looking into an outdoor heater and/or fire pit.
    I agree about the planes... I can't imagine getting into a plane right now. I always felt they were kind of a petri dish but now it's more serious. I hope every day that our governor starts to take some more serious precautions. I feel like people don't take it as serious because everything is open and "business as usual" gives an impression of normalcy when it's anything but.
    Thank you for all your kind words. Kathleen keeps me on my toes and keeps me feeling young for sure.
    Stay well healthy and safe

    While there seems to be conflicting information on whether the vaccines prevent COVID, it is best to err on the safe side, and continue wearing masks, social distancing, washing our hands. On the local news this morning, I learned that California's current death toll from COVID is 30,513 people. And the mutant strain is here and increasing.

    Not enough people have been vaccinated yet for us to see a change.

    It would be nice for you to be able to be outside in the cold winter months. A heater, fire pit, lots of coats and blankets, hot chocolate ~ if anyone can make that work, it's you and your family.

    Blueberry waffles and pancakes. I'll be over for breakfast tomorrow! I'll have to astral project to get there, but then we won't have to social distance.

    Sending healing, positive energy, and prayers to you and your family and all of our dear friends here and your loved ones. Stay safe. Keep wearing your masks. And find a bit of joy in every day. List your blessings and count them. That is an enlightening exercise for your spirit.

    Love & Light,



    Rose

    Rose,I totally agree we still need to take all the same precautions we've been taking. We're planning on doing all. of that.
    Counting my blessings every day. At the top of the list my families health. My family is all still working and doing so pretty safely. Myself my husband and Kathleen have had a lot of quality time together. We have been able to tackle some home improvement projects that have been on the back burner for some time now.
    Hugs and prayers to my CN family!

    It's so good to know that you and your family are healthy and being cautious. These are certainly scary times for all of us, but you have been troopers and so imaginative and creative in finding joy to get through it. I know you will continue to do that, because that's who you are!

    Rose thanks as always for your kind and positive words. I think what keeps me going is knowing that the weather will get better and we will have time outside. I miss our walks and bike rides. The cold is really hard on Kathleen she gets cold so easily especially on her stroke affected side.
    Not sure if I mentioned it before but my son and his fiance have postponed their wedding. It was originally set for April 16th. The new date is September 3rd. I haven't broken the news to Kathleen but she'll adjust as she always does. It's hard to believe it's coming up on a year since this covid stuff started. I never imagined it would interfere with Kathleen's birthday party but we need different plans this year for sure. We'll have to get creative and make a fun surprise parade! She'll love it I'm sure!
    Stay well and safe my friend!
