Today I have no clue as to what is going on in the world outside my little slice here in the East Bay. Christian is alive, well and probably exhausted with days more till Augsburg has gotten through its bomb removal. My friend and colleague Janet from my first tour in Germany (1981-84) spent three years stationed in Augsburg. Knows exactly the area involved. Berlin is still recovering from the truck into the Christmas Market this past weekend. I am sure that there is plenty more out there equally unhappy, unpleasant.
Oh, yes, someone or other driving an 18 wheeler managed to block a goodly portion of one of the local freeways. Seems to happen all too frequently, especially during rush hours.
I spent my normal day with my Eldest (car drop off for service) followed by a nice breakfast at Saul’s Deli. We ran a couple of errands. I managed to get two more Yukon Pullovers cut out and serged. All that is left is thread trimming and adding loop and button. I have a pile of remnants to turn into napkins and placements. I also have this lovely huge bale of batting which is going to be used in bags, placemats and table toppers.
Friends came over for dinner; Dani fixed some veggies, salad and made a great brownie cheesecake.
In other words – a totally and completely normal day. I’m running a bit tired but otherwise doing well. Thanks for all the well wishes. Not sure what my new normal is going to be.
