The Changing of the Guard

 A short December post to share..the changing of the guard. 

My daughter in Portland carries on our family traditions.

Aoife plays with her Great-grandmother's ceramic Christmas tree.

Their family enjoys my vintage collection of holiday advent calendars.
One more wonderful family man, decorates with real foliage as it snows outside.

And, friendship...So grateful...Today, in the rain came Linda.  She put my favorite flowers and a Quiltmania magazine in a bag on my porch. Lifting me up with kindness!!!

Feeling tired, but great here.  Talked to  my doctor today.  I am on  Muscinex, Flonase and Prednisone to deflect from my asthma.  My only struggle is fatigue, but snuggling in bed on a rainy day is kind of nice. My doc said that the greatest risk factor with Covid is age.  I asked, according to the medical establishment, how old is old for Covid.   For Covid, she said 65 is considered old. 75 is considered very old...What a gal!!!!

You are doing all the right things, keep it up! Thank goodness for real friends- more priceless than gold. Lovely to see your granddaughter in such a beautiful place. The fatigue is real, just move a little bit every once in a while. I had fatigue for about a week afterward, but it ended. Good to see your post!

What a wonderful gift on your porch. If 75 is very old, 82 must be ancient!

How nice to have friends leaving gifts for you, when you're tucked up in bed you can enjoy the magazine.
