started off with various medical appointments
a blood draw, a bone density scan, a booby-o-gram,
a yearly physical, and a cardio update.
How blissfully fun...LOL :)
I faithfully took my sketchbook to each activity...
so much to draw...but so little time
Amazingly without fail...everyone was fairly punctual.
(It also helped booking the first appointment slots of the day!)
completing all the medical "stuff "...
the Christmas shopping began,
and the tree went up,
"Chihuly came to town",
and I sketched all day at the Garden.
the temps stayed warm
and it still didn't feel quite like Christmas...yet.
("Just wait!" She says with a big smile on her face..."Just wait!")
