I’m 64 but I feel a bit like I did as a kid on Christmas eve. I’m so anticipating my upcoming visit with James, Cristen and kids – two whole months! And a possible trip to the Bahamas in the middle of that .
I’m sitting here on the chaise portion of Jessica’s couch, under a wonderful crazy quilt that was made by Scott’s 90 something year old grandma. It’s multi colored, multi patterned, lined with fleece and soooo warm. If she can do something like that, I can finish my book! And do some of my own sewing as well.
Jessica’s dog, Ginger, is asleep on the chair, while my dog, Chaz is asleep in Ginger’s bed. These two dogs have their own sibling rivalry. It may be because they aren’t always together, so they have to establish their relationship all over again when we come here.
Ginger is the prettiest little beagle, with reddish brown spots over her body, black saddle, and a cute little white muzzle with a white strip running up to the top of her head. Sweet dog. Chaz, a Shi-Tzu/Pomeranian, is mostly white, with a pale beige colored saddle. He has beautiful round black eyes that ‘pop’ out of his white face. Chaz is 3 years old, and still wants to get into everything. Curious dog. Ginger is a squirrel hunter. Ginger probably weighs 25 pounds, while Chaz weighs around 13. Ginger is definitely the ‘boss’ in this relationship.
Today I got to talk to my son James. I love talking to him on the phone, though it was cut short by a conference call . He’s so smart and capable and has been so successful. Very proud of him. Proud of both kids, of course. Today he just gets the attention lol. He and his family are going to be moving to Texas from the DC area, and are looking forward to it. There’s a lot of work ahead, finding the right schools, the right house, etc.
I have a book to write.
