Christmas Letter 2013

Merry Christmas from me to you!

2013 was a busy year for me and my youngest daughter.  We had rented a very little one bedroom house in Lake county, California in December of 2011. 
We have been looking to rent a larger place.  We put an application in on a 3 bedroom apartment and we finally were accepted.
We moved just 3 weeks ago. So me, my daughter, the cats and my daughter's boyfriend are here now.
It is great to have my own bedroom and bathroom again!

We had a great loss this year of two family members.  My two youngest children's Dad -  Larry - passed away in August 2013.  It was a great shock when we found out they said he would not live more than few weeks.  No one or the Dr’s knew he was so ill.
We knew that my second daughter's ex-husband Matt was ill with terminal cancer of the lungs.   It was just very difficult because he died 2 days of Larry’s death. 

We look forward to 2014 with new plans and ideas.

I have been busy making the gifts and taking photos of them and highlight the patterns and how to information for the blog pages.  I have also begun to review books and movies.  My third daughter has added two pages of book reviews for the blog.
She works at the three libraries here in the county.   Her boyfriend graduated with 3 AA degrees and is getting ready to start his Bachelor’s degree. He is in the process of applying to colleges in the bay area.

Our three cats are getting into everything and learning about their new home.

Me, my daughter and her boyfriend all wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
May the Lord bless you and your Families with Health ~Peace~ and Love
