The funeral was beautiful, and my aunt and cousin are doing well. My Uncle and his other daughter (she died before him)...are buried near a huge tangerine tree in the cemetery. We picked some from the tree (they were just falling off and no one was picking them)...and I have brought them home to eat one a day for a while to prevent scurvy! Ha ha ha...just kidding!!! LOL. No...one a day to get extra Vitamin C. I am still fighting the residual cough from my bronchitis. I advised my husband to do the same...he, too, is still coughing. We had both come down with this just after we returned from Shreveport. I am sick of it...it has been 3 weeks already!
Thankyou to everyone who left such heartwarming condolences!!! It meant a lot to me!!! I have not been able to visit blogs, but hope to get back to it somewhat tonight.
My litle Thai pepper plant is making peppers profusely! Little red things among gren leaves! One of my Moms neighbors (a man) loves HOT food...so we are delivering them to him. I told him I only want to know if he can make something positive from them...in other words...something he will enjoy! I am still picking off cubanelle and banana peppers, which has been great fun! You can always throw a mild pepper into just about anything (AND they are high in Vitamin C as well)! Perfect for winter!
Doozey was doing well when I got back home! She was VERY excited to see me and carried on about 30 minutes before she could settle down after I walked in!
I found two big boxes...one from family (Christmas presents), and one big box of goodies I ordered... of gifts for the grands!!! Both very exciting to open!!!
Tomorrow I mail out our last box of gifts for our out of state kids and grands. That will be a relief to have it all mailed out, so we know it will arrive in time!
It is such a busy time of year, isn't it??? I'm glad I am not doing a traditional Christmas dinner, but any family that wishes to join us may do so at our local Chinese buffet. It becamwe a tradition while my son and his family were in the Army...and now I am not about to change it...I am too old and worn out to cook anymore!
Happy holidays to everyone!
