Hello, its me ...

     Good almost afternoon dearest...  it is just about 45' now when I woke early this morning it was bearly 40... which is cold for San Francisco...  I'm sorry that I haven't visited much or replied or posted... I got sick right after my last post with a upper respitory infection..  I'm still sick but feeling much better...  my I pad is still doing that crazy thing of blinking out... so every few words I have to stop and save so it doesn't disappear, indeed no fun..  I'm so bored being sick but now that I'm much better I'm cleaning again.  I was thinking last night gee you cleaned to put the christmas tree up now you clean to put it down...  last night I finished cleaning the last shelving that I didn't get done before Christmas, the one with all the pink glass...  but its done now, I removed everything cleaned behind it under it on top lol...  sweept and mopped cleaned down the cabinet..  I need a new cabinet but don't want too purchase anything because this living room has ruined all my things...  it stys damp in here..  Ineed to move out but still working on things at mamas long process...  never I thought it would be so hard, but it is what it is...
     Anyways, burr it is cold today...  today I will un due my little silver christmas tree and put it all away ...  and maybe get the christmas dishes put up and ready my dinning table for Valentines Day...

       I made tea and the warm tea taste so good on this cold day..
     My birthday candles, my two girls and granddaughter surprised me late evening Sunday with dinner and a cake...
     59, hum... can you believe your 59, nope Where did all those days go... I really don't know.. one moment your 35, next your 40 somethin and then your 59, where did it all go, I don't ... I sat here all alone Saturday thinking a lot about mama and how much I miss her and being able to call her on the phone and chat..  all day Sunday alone no one texted or call to say happy birthday mama...  but I tried to let it go and not think of it..  knowing everyone was busy with their own.. but later that evening the girls came and surprised me...
     I was feeling sad not so much that no one said happy birthday more cause I couldn't call mama... 
life is hard at times...  but I thank my girls for coming..  And I thank all of you for the lovely birthday wishes...

Just a bit of chatter

     Here we go again...  it is gonna keep disappearing on me ..  ugh..  well I will try to post..  Good morning everyone.  I hope your New Year has started well..  I started a fasting today for the Lord.  It will be my first time..   No meat and no sweets for 21 days.  I can surely use the no sweets.  I have gained so much weight, it is time to shed some pounds.. 
     This morning I pulled out my January teacup, this month is my birthday I will be 59 years old on the 15th.  I don't know where all the days went to..  I have looked back but it still doesn't seem to add up to 59 years..   but my oldest son will be 39, we are 20 years apart...  it seemed like yesterday when he was born to me.. and this month my 14th grandchild will be born... who would have ever thought I would have 14 and soon 15 grandbabies, surely not I...  
     It is rainning here in San Francisco...  so it is quite dreary, but I don't really mind at all..  it is cold as well... just going to hang out and work on my embroidery today ...  and set up some foods for my fasting....  
     I love this piece...  the other end  has the same pattern..  I can't wait until it is finished.  I'm working on several projects.  I tend to get tired of one thing so I will switch up here and there..  
     Tea with no sugar...  good thing I was down to a pinch already and some days nothing.  Well everyone I think I'm off to work on this embriodery then cook for later...  have a wonderfully blessed day...  with love Janice πŸƒπŸ’™πŸŒΈπŸ’žπŸŒΊπŸƒ
