The picture says it all, that is how i feel ...
Today I feel weepy, and I have a cold, and a cough, which I haven't had in about 8 years.  I must be run down, the holidays this year are getting me down, and I vowed not to let them.  I have been thinking about my mother and sister and father who have all passed away.  And feel my family shrinking, and worry about my own mortality, and my other sister.  There are things that I need to do and I have put off this but I made a new bucket list of 12 things that I want to accomplish in my life and I vow to do them.  They are not impossible things they are doable.  Christmas time is always a season of soul searching and gathering of
all the people that you love close beside you and letting everyone know how much they mean to you.  I have vowed for 2012 that I will let the people I know and love everyday how much they mean to me.

Oh for heavens sake I am being so overly dramatic here, must be the fever (lol).  Well today I am laying low, feeding a fever and starving a cold, (or whatever it is).  Tonight the shopper is coming over after work and the family is having pizza and we are baking.  The hubby needs some stuff for work on Friday and so does the shopper, tis the season. 


  1. christmas isn't all gaiety and merriment for most. we do seem to do alot of soul searching this time of year. sorry you're not feeling well a good time to get lost in something creative. hope you're feeling better soon.

  2. Sorry to hear you are run down Lee. I agree with Cynthia, it's that time of year when memories are close and we miss those that are no longer here to share with us. You are a great example to me, as I am also feeling more weepy than ever this Christmas, as you have made a bucket list and are tackling life head on! Great attitude.
    Hope you are feeling better soon from your cold. The weepies, well I guess that's just life eh? Hugs.

  3. oh no... hope youre feeling better v soon!

  4. ps has my card arrived yet?

  5. Lee.....tons of get well wishes your way! And concerning your list, go for it! Be brave, it is all worth it and it doesn't matter how old you are. I have been brave all year long and I got so many times rewarded for it in such a fullfilling way, it's actually kind of unbelieveable!!! So, just take it easy, maybe put your feelings into art and get well soon. I know how a cold can make you - kind of weak and than it just starts 'working in your brain'. Too much toughts.....too much stress on the poor health. So don't be so hard on yourself ;)
    Smiles, Anke :)

    I know what you mean about christmas as I always think of your mom (my Auntie that I am so much like)at this time and miss her dearly Christmas is really hard for me as I always like to be with family and mother does not like to have too many people around so that always makes it hard. I know Auntie and Uncle and Delta are with us always and even more at this time of year their memories are always with us and I cherish them dearly miss you
    merry christmas and a happy new year to all of you xxoo from your cousin in Vancouver
