Good morning. It's only 5 a.m., but I've been busy. The Mrs has been sundowning for quite a while now, so we don't really get many winks here any more. Before the sundowning got so noticeable, we could usually get two or three hours of winks. Of course, we have a monitor not far from our ear so that we can hear her.
I just looked up sundowning on Google, and I've tagged a page that I think I shall email to one of her daughters so that they can learn a bit about it. As the days go on, the Mrs gets more and more agitated and confused, and sleeps less and less during the night. During the day, she naps on and off in her chair. Most of the mishaps take place in the evening, during the night, and in the early morning. So much for the glory of the golden years.
On to something more cheerful, how about some photos of the Mrs' beautiful Amaryllis? At the moment, she has some that are a deep corally red, and some that are a deep mauve. Aren't these gorgeous?
We just planted an Amaryllis a few days ago, so it will be a while before ours is big enough to bloom. DIL Janet brought me a gorgeous fuschia Christmas Cactus a couple of weeks ago, and all the little buds on it will be blooming soon. One blossom is already out and it is simply beautiful. I shall have to take some photos of it to share with you.
Last night, after the Mrs was all tucked into bed, I was able to work on finishing up the new December collab kit which we will start posting tomorrow morning. Gosh, it's turning out to be quite pretty. But, that's all the hint I shall give you.
My tree did not go up yesterday, and it will probably have to wait until Monday (tomorrow). I was thinking that I would do it this morning when I get home, but now I think I need to go to bed after Pogo has his breakfast and get some sleep. It will be another long night tonight.
I'm thinking that I'd like to check out Canon's newest point and shoot camera. It has a 50x zoom, and might be a lot easier for me when I'm at work and when I travel. I love my DSL, but sometimes it would be easier to leave it at home and carry a much lighter camera. Hmmmm, I think I just might look into it this coming week.
Judy in Adelaide, Australia, has been wishing for snow for a while now, and late yesterday she finally got her wish. Lots of snow for her and her little boy to play in and maybe build a big snowman. Have fun, and please please do not send any of the snow my way. lol.
Now I think I'll try to catch up on some of my emails while the Mrs is asleep. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
