I have nothing to show, but I am back.
We had an absolutely wonderful Christmas week with the local kids and the California kids, but the holiday ended sadly with the death of my father-in-law.
I am so glad that I journal almost every morning (thanks, Julia Cameron). Now I can read back over the entries of Christmas week and recall the great time we had while all the family was together. It had almost been snatched from my memory, but, thankfully, it is coming back. I am picking up Christmas things today and getting ready for this week's classes, and I'm savoring those holiday memories.
It is very cold here and the wind is blowing. The sun is shining and the Bay is dark blue. A nice day to stay inside and look out at it. I am just kind of nesting here and it feels good.
