Merry Christmas to you!  It's a warm (56 degrees!) and rainy morning here in Cambridge.  I have five minutes before we head out to my sister's for presents with my lovely niece Alice, and roast beef with the family and friends.   I am thinking about you, wondering what you're doing,  wishing you could be here for a hug and a bad pun and stollen!  Have a wonderful day!!!  And then post about it.  :)  That would be a great gift for me!

I hope the last day of 2011 is going well for you and you are ready for a brand new year tomorrow!  It hardly seems like winter - no snow and temps above freezing continue to make us wonder if winter as we know it will ever arrive.  How was your holiday?  
 
I've been on vacation since Dec. 21 so I hardly know what day of the week it is, but the internet seems determined to remind me that the year is ending!  I can't wrap my head around much of a '"year in review" exercise except to say "I am healthy!  Hooray!"  I had my first post-treatment mammogram last week, and it is NORMAL!  Such a relief.  I would like to avoid doctors and hospitals in 2012!  

I've done "not much" on my vacation.  We did some shopping to prep for Christmas (I hate shopping!) but cut way back on presents per family agreement.  We had a quiet Christmas with my family at my sister's house, making it a fun day for my niece.  
 
We saw childhood friends visiting on their way home to PA from a family visit in Maine.  
 
Neil and I did take a wonderful day trip to the beaches on the South Shore.  They are beautiful in winter, with gorgeous waves and no crowds!  We had a delicious dinner at the Mill Wharf in Scituate harbor with one of the best risottos I've ever tasted - shrimp, scallion and cheese! 
 
Neil is on new medication that has made him much more functional and pleasant lately.  Hooray!  He's been working on audio projects and helped me around the condo this week!  
 
My mom is doing well, been out visiting people from her church who need some cheer.  

I am looking forward to working on Theatre@First's "Pride and Prejudice" being performed in March, and having a normal life in ways I didn't in 2010.  
 
I found someone else to make a good wish, author Neil Gaiman:
 
"..I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind."
 
Happy New Year!

Happy Thanksgiving!  I am very thankful for you and the amazing things you post to make me cringe and think and smile.  Especially during the past year, it has been so wonderful to have your posts to read and your comments that let me know someone was reading my blathering.  I got  lots of support, advice and different perspectives that were priceless!  

I feel the urge to check in and find out where everyone will be, so take a sec to let me know what you're doing tomorrow?  

N. and I will be at my sister E's house as usual.  I am so lucky not to have to travel very far or cook, and be able to see my entire family close by.  I am limbering up my dishwashing hands and hoping to help out in lots of ways.  And will look forward to better days in the coming year!

I wish you safe travels, delicious food and an easy time with family and friends!
