Good morning, Everyone. I am anticipating a flood of company. My kids, grandkids, and sisters are traveling home. There is still a good deal of shopping, cooking, baking, and staging for the big events. I will probably be covered in lists and mumbling my reminders for the next week or so. I have Matt in charged of stuffing greeting card envelopes and sticking address labels on them. He is almost done. I do love the crazy chaos.
In the meantime, I am sending this E-card to my virtual peeps.
It’s The 2021 Martin Mini ReCap
Merry Christmas, Happy Belated Hanukkah and Dwali, and
Joyous Season Greetings
to My Everyone
Another COVID year, but Matt and I were vaccinated and boosted as soon as possible. Thankfully, we were not as isolated as the year before. We did a lot of driving. Most of the winter was spent on Hilton Head Island nearby the grandkids and the beach (and Hallie and Lance,too). We road-tripped to Mom in Florida overlooking the beautiful intercostal, enjoyed a very fun week with my sister and brother-in-law, Barbara and John, discovering the Lower Chesapeake Bay in their BIG boat, and had a blast with family and friends during our annual Beach Week. I visited my Robyn in Oregon, hiked National Parks and met her boyfriend (mom approved).
*Just as Matt’s replaced knee recovered, he got a new hip. He is the Tin Man. His mobility steadily improves, and he is feeling more like his sunshine self.
*During the year, I had two middle grade historical fiction novels published-The Heart of Bakers and Artists and The Dreams of Singers and Sluggers. It’s been a whirlwind. Check them out on Amazon and B&N. I continue to be the most boring metastatic breast cancer patient at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Science, compassion, and “good attitude” have kept this disease slow and lazy.
*Our families welcomed new babies to the clan. We still feel the loss of our beloved patriarchs, confirming the mantra “every day’s a gift.”
*Matt and I wish our Everyone a very merry holiday and a safe, blessed, fun-filled 2022.
*Merry Merry, Everyone.
