Play me Somtin'

This Christmas Day I got to play the piano at my church and the piano at the nursing home. This is a photo of my piano. I've been practicing all year and it worked out great. I played before mass began as people filed in and then had a full house at the nursing home. The nursing home piano was sorely out of tune, but I made it work. There is a great joy playing on several pianos. Now I start again with a new year and more lessons.

She Goes out Into the World

This December marked the graduation of my husbands niece, Laura. She has a Bachelors in Biology from AR Tech in Russellville. We live about 4 hours away from the college and were able to find a farm sitter and plans were made. We got to see this nice small campus and the happy students there. I am happy for her and hope she finds her path in life.

Busy Christmas

The weather has been mild and very wet this December. 

I got my snowy village up and lit for guest when they stop by.

Our front door reflects the outside lights. Warm inside the house and cold outside at night.
With all the events that came up this October through December the end of the year has flown by in a blur. It was good work, helping friends in need, but personal projects were put on hold. Did not get to ride my horses nor create nor sew. I am looking forward to next year and making time for myself.
