When You’re Making Other Plans
This week has turned out not to be all about the holidays. My sister’s husband has died after almost a year in the nursing home. So besides getting ready for Christmas, we are turning our attention to a funeral on Christmas Eve. Christmas dinner was originally scheduled to be at my house with ten or so family members, and my sister insists that we proceed as planned with that.
So for Saturday I will be preparing the turkey, gravy, stuffing, homemade rolls, and pecan pies as usual. Others will bring lots of yummy vegetables and other trimmings. Tomorrow and Friday will be all about my sister.
Needless to say I haven’t been in the studio. And I do miss my art, even with only a few days off from it. But sometimes there are more important things that put everything else in perspective.
I hope you have plans for a wonderful holiday. Santa will be coming here just for the dogs and the cat.
