Well, today was again a busy day. Had eye Dr. appts, and we did a little bit of shopping. I have also wanted the little candle lights in the windows, so we set out in search of them and they are now in my windows! They look so warm and inviting, I Love it.
The sad note is the passing of my cousin Larry. His dad and my dad were just 20 years and 2 days apart in age, they came from a big family! Larry has been my only cousin to keep in touch on a regular basis, sometimes just a forward, but I always knew he was there. I had gotten an email from him on Nov. 12th telling me he had bad news. He had liver cancer, started having problems the end of October and the Dr. had just confirmed it. Told me he didn't know how much time he had and hoped to make it through Christmas. His son and dil just had a new baby recently. He thanked me for being such a good cousin and told me he loved me. That was my last email. I found out he had passed away by reading it on another blog last night, he passed away last Monday, and his funeral was yesterday. I'm still in shock. I wish someone had called me. And the day I told hubby about the email he said we should go see him, I should not have waited. It was only 5 days after his last email that he passed away. I will miss him. Take nothing for granted, my heart said I should go and I didn't.
On a happier note the weather was a little warmer today. Hope you all had a good day. I have my work done and now am going to work on finishing up my part of those team effort ornies, giggle. Hope the painter is ready!
