Have I told you I'm going to be a grandmother at the end of May?
Well, I am!
Meantime, we go outside at the beginning of December without a jacket. I'm swimming nearly every day in my wet suit. It's lovely when the sun is shining, no matter if it's winter or summer. We walk up and down the leaf-strewn driveway, 10 times to make a mile. Amos races back and forth from one end of the pool or drive to the other to keep us company. Now the leaves are almost gone, we can see through to the other side.
We've put up wreaths along the railings as our first gesture towards Christmas, our first Christmas here. The grown-up, married, pregnant children are coming to see the house for the first time and meet Amos.
Happy, happy Holidays to all. I miss you, wherever you are.
