My cards are finally in the mail--I worked on them Tuesday and then mailed them Wednesday. Bittersweet since my list is growing shorter and shorter, but, alas, that is the way life is when you are in your 80's. All of the cards I send go to friends and family members that have been on my list for many, many years and each one must have a note or a letter in with it. I have a cousin back in Illinois who is probably 10 years older than I putting her in her mid-nineties. Ruthie still writes with quite a steady hand. Her note was "Nothing new. Same as last year. I'm fine. Busy all the time. Love, Ruthie". She has always been a vibrant, energetic lady and is still in her home. Bless her heart.
Also accomplished some pants shortening today - two pairs of jeans and pj bottoms. Took a while, but I'm glad that is done. Will be starting to think about packing to go to KC in a couple of days. Time is flying by.
