That's so wonderful, Trish. Buck and I had 32 years and it wasn't unusual to find us dancing in the kitchen as we prepared dinner. We always said "I love you" as we left to go somewhere or when we spoke on the phone. Little did we know our time together would end before we really got started.

As for the "last thing that made me smile"...

I think the sleep fairy hit my inside kitties with a "tired stick." I looked around the family room and saw the following around the electric radiator:

- Sally asleep and hogging the big heart-shaped basket
- Ashley, Chessie Lou and Miss Rodeo, asleep, crammed into a round basket about the same size as the heart one
- Miss Augie, asleep too, wedged on the floor between the two baskets

Then, Tween, asleep on an afghan on the back of the sofa

I don't got no kitties on my lap. THAT'S rare!

Aww, Katie, I am so happy you have so many kitties to keep you company and make you smile...even if they aren't always on your lap!

A lot more hassles about flood stuff today but two good things happened. We got asked out to dinner by some good friends, and I had nothing to wear so I pulled a pair of black pants I used to use for catering and haven't worn in over two years. They fit better than they did when I got them!!!! Now that is reason to smile!

Son's girlfriend called this afternoon!! They are coming to Oregon with us for Christmas after all!!!! We didn't think they would but they are and we are over joyed! It'll be the first time that Shannon will meet the family and I just know that they are going to love her as much as we all do. Having the two of them there with us means so much to both of us. It's the best gift that they could have ever picked out!!

Ah Trish, see how all your good thoughts you send out come back to you? And I have to say you more than deserve this...I hope this is the best Christmas ever.

Last thing that made me smile

The last thing that made me smile was talking to my mom on the phone...she has been really sick, and this was the first time I've really been able to talk to her for weeks. It was truly wonderful!

I took a cake decorating class at a bakery with an artist who has twice done cake challenges on the food network and was at the Fabulous Food Show. I felt like a two year old playing with different tips and colored buttercream and I walked out with two cakes. I had such a good time! And, it was fun, relaxing and made me smile.
