Pressure is off

The Solstice came and went. I made a nice meal that I ate alone because Steve went off to trivia, and G doesn’t ever eat what I cook. So I made myself happy and had a lovely potato soup.

Now we are just doing what other people do – getting together as we can, seeing family as they hit Atlanta. Eating. Knitting. Avoiding the crowds and staying warm.

I have to pay the water bill tonight and finish a slipper for Sara – and that’s it.

I made chicken enchiladas the easy way. Cut it up, mix it together, throw everything in a casserole and cover it with cheese. Yum. We made cookies and corn bread. I’ll make stuffing for Christmas and bread pudding. I can’t wait to see Haskell and Vanessa and Kelly. Their plane should arrive at 7:30 from San Francisco.

The house is quiet. The dog is snuggled against me. My ladder is twinkling. It’s a good night.

Happy Holidays everyone.


About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in Kenya, married to the son of a preacher, with 4 spoiled dogs and and an add on (a rescued kitten). Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and depression and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.
