My cousin Randy passed today, 10 minutes after I told him I loved him (he was sleeping so could not reply). This is not a good photo, as it is blurry, but it is the most recent one I have and he was sick when this was taken, but you can still see what a beautiful man he was. He was the bravest man I know. Go with God sweet cousin, we will not forget you. XOXO

I am following Renee's example and choosing to be happy, no matter what. I am going through with my dinner plans and actually have invited more friends. Between people and animals my little house is going to be full. I am working tomorrow, but will spend the evening baking. I am wishing each and every one of you, my lovely blog friends a happy and magical Christmas. Love, XOXO

Also very sucky is that my cat B is still ill and is now having more issues. Spike is holding.
I do have fun plans for Christmas, I am only hoping that I will be able to do them, as long as I don't have some emergency with the cats.
I have two dear friends coming for dinner to my house. I have a bottle of champagne and hopefully for this one day I can have peace and joy and fun and leave all the ugliness outside in the cold.
I love you.xoxo

All is not lost though, I do know that the pain will stop, this is just a bump in the road. I have a good blogging friend who told me the other day that she was going to be the happiest depressed person ever, it made me smile and I will be the happiest sad person ever, because despite what goes on, despite the fact that I want to hide under the covers and run from the heartache, I know I won't, I know I will make it through and that there will be unknown gifts along the way.
I am full of gratitude for my health and I have so very much to be grateful for.
Would you send good thoughts to R and please to his family and to Renee who is feeling very ill.
Thank you so much and I promise this blog will get happy again soon(fingers crossed). XOXO

It has been a busy week with work, kitty nursing and Christmas stuff. I think it may get a bit more relaxed the next couple weeks. I am looking forward to doing some art. The cats are still holding. B is still way too thin and Spike does not seem as good as new, but they are doing okay for the most part. We take it a day at a time.
This week I had a huge disappointment. Obama has been my hero and I really believed in him, but after this week and the whole health care fiasco I fear he has abandoned us. I am now totally disgusted with politics and may never vote again. Really disheartened. What do you all think?
On a happy note I saw a wonderful movie, "The Fantastic Mr. Fox", I loved it. The animation was grand and I laughed a lot, something I needed to do.
Attempting to keep my thoughts positive and looking for things that make me joyful, and doing more of them :-).
I hope you are all having a great week. XOXO

Surrender to the magic, Anne. That's why it's there. That's why you're there - to learn that there really are miracles and that they abound, as if on command, once you understand the truth about your reality and heritage. Surrender, yet prepare. Ask, yet expect.
Happy Monday. XOXO

Make a guess which one is not true.
1. I once told a man 3 times my size that I would scratch his eyes out if he did not remove himself from in front of me at a Sting function (He rudely stood in front of me and I could not see), he moved immediately :-). True, I can be mean if it is called for and if I am very hormonal :-).
2. Speaking of Sting, we once knew each other for a brief time. True, he is a lovely man.
3. In my 20's I tried many illegal substances. True, I was a curious girl.
4. I once lived with a man who had a recurring role in the old "Streets of San Francisco" series, he played a cop. True.
5. I have not been to a doctor since I was 21. Due to a bad experience when I was 6 I don't trust them. True.
6. I was once interrogated by FBI agents. True, I have not always had the best taste in men :-).
7. I have a tattoo of a dragonfly on my right shoulder. FALSE, I love tattoos, but I hate needles.
8. When I was 13 I became a bible thumping christian, though it was short lived :-). True.
9. I believe in fairies. TRUE!
10. When I was 6, a man landed a helicopter into a nearby field and gave my friend and I a ride.
Anonymous and Dawn and Renee, you got the answer right. Thank you all for playing! xoxo

I heard news about several people I love very much, bad news and I need prayers and good thoughts. The first I cannot name as she would kill me, but let's call her K, she was just told she has cancer, I am not sure of the details yet. My cousin R's cancer has spread to his lungs and he needs prayers. Then there is my mom, who while she is doing really well, has a lot of pain in her legs. And last, but not least is Renee, who is having a really bad week, health wise. Thank you for thinking of them and sending out love.
On an upbeat note, I bought sparkly lights to hang as I have never done this and I NEED to get into the spirit of the season. I also need some fun and to do some art. I need to start taking some care of me this week.
I know I have not been around much, but I hope to catch up with all of you this weekend.
Love and hugs. XOXO
