I discovered a truth on an embroidered cushion bought long ago...

Gabie's holidays...



I would have never guessed that dog sitting could be a form of therapy... Friday morning our friends delivered Gabie with all her paraphernalia to be with us during their two week vacation. It turns out Gabie loves us and we/I LOVE Gabie!!! We have been taking long walks-incredible amount of energy she has- and the rest of the time... we hug and kiss!!!
At least today I got away from the total attention she demands and managed to do certain things, including a whole bunch of these beautiful origami wreaths using scraps from my marbled papers. All in all a true emotional therapy day-long session, today! Tutorial for the origami wreath here
I hope you are also having a great last Sunday of the year!

Christmas' thoughts


Mama is not suffering from old age anymore;  the sad image of her last years hopefully is going to fade from our minds... Thank God she gave us all lifetimes filled with her strong, inspiring and loving presence.  I hope soon my memories will be filled with just those images. I pray that someday I will see her in my dreams/in my mind the way we used to know her for most of my life: strong, leading, determined,  smiling and laughing out loud...

Still I have so many reasons for being happy this Christmas: Christiana and Scott were here for five days! Mark is still here for a few more days. All our loved ones are well and we manage to constantly being in touch. Our dear friends throughout the world are keeping us in their hearts as we do; the house is filled with Christmas colors, smells , tastes and sounds. We love and we are loved! 
Happy Christmas to everyone!
