I'm slowly getting better, but still feel fatigued. I've never had anything like this before, with allergies and my muscles tightening and just feeling awful. I went into the city last week, and I had a driver, of course, because who wants to drive the highways and freeways at my age? There are two drivers up here that get you to where you need to be, and this time R. drove me. I call them "badass" because they will drive in the sleet, rain, and snow. And I am so thankful for them. I really like R's wife as well, who accompanied us on one of the trips to my hometown. Here are a few pictures of the drive to the city.
I didn't realize, but R. used to be a photographer when he was younger, and he had many cameras. Little 'ole me has one. He has driven this road a hundred times, so he pointed out a few things along the way. Wouldn't it be nice to have your name on a tree after you're gone?
Someone painted this rock to look like Snoopy. I've seen it many times, but until now, I didn't know why the colors were so different on the rock and what it all meant.
This old house used to be a stagecoach stop, and then later a Brothel.
On the way back, he wanted me to see the windmills, so he drove to a higher elevation, 4,000 ft. to see them. There was already snow on the ground.
I made some tostadas one afternoon that were really good.
Some days, we just need to order a pizza.
My son saw the movie, Napoleon, with Joaquin Phoenix. He said it was really good.
As for me, I've been watching the Lifetime Christmas movies. I really enjoyed A Very Vintage Christmas. There's a bit of a mystery in the show too. I love old things, so this was right up my alley. ; )
I saw this brooch on a friend's blog. Isn't it the prettiest thing?

And I have to show you Charlotte's three month picture. She's such a smiley baby.
Baking sugar cookies around Christmastime has been a tradition in our family for years.
A Merry Christmas season to you.
