ChAoS has returned and been brought back under control for a while, I think. One can never be certain, and although I can't control the situations, controlling my reactions to them is my goal.
Alzheimer's is dreadful, hateful, despicable disease.
On the bright side, I'm continuing to refer to Franklin's Virtues; I've taken Laddie on a long country tour. Attended Tai Chi in the park and two night classes this week. Have practiced a couple of hour long Yoga sessions. Have made some progress on the Voltaire biography. Finished the blanket stitch around appliques and made the quilt sandwich for the table topper. Put away all Christmas decorations. Made copies of old pictures and mailed them to my niece. I've visited an open house (way, way out of the range of what I'd ever spend even if I had the money) and drooled over the beauty of the light and the courtyard. I've made progress in understanding how to resize and post pictures. Started an "uberlist." Haven't worried too much about my messy house and sewing room. Not too bad for the first week of a new year.
Speaking of Virtues, Kim at SkybelleArts has done her Friday Collage using the Nine Noble Virtues. What a great way to post the qualities one aspires to!
