Every year I have gloomy thoughts as I put Christmas stuff away,
and this year a little bit more so.
Having received a 35 year service award pin at work,
I am feeling mighty old - and tired.
Pain of osteoarthritis is causing much struggles to just get to the bus stop,
just to get out of my chair, etc. etc.
Something in the word degenerative that is really really depressing.
Like, how can you have any hope with that word hanging around.
To make matters worse, all my life I've been pretty much avoiding talking pills for aches and pains, only now to start taking them out of desperation, and realizing with utter astonishment and dismay,
that I have no pain relief - none.
My last hope, I guess.
And I hope soon.
Oh little tree in library,
How sweet you are each year!
(to the tune of O Little Town of Bethlehem)
Even Santa looks down in the dumps :(
My little tree got a new topper this year,
instead of the broken one,
mended with paper clips for a couple of years (shocking!),
and which I took home last year,
with every intention to glue it together.
But - A whole year passed...
Can someone say Amazon!! :)
I tell you, when it's as cold as it's been lately here in Quebec,
online shopping is just the ticket!
And if you stick to it,
every day is Christmas when you get home and check the mail!
(Um, oops, just forgot my NY resolution).
In closing I share this neat image.
Cool make-over app at Facebook,
transforms photos into artsy creations,
like this old favourite - a frosty me,
taken at a frosty bus stop,
on a very frosty morning.
Happy New Year!
(Just don't wish me good health or any such malarkey, thanks,
it's not in the cards for me!)
