DAY 344 of NONNIE'S PHOTO A DAY: Christmas Eve 2002 in New Orleans

My loving husband and I were fortunate to be present at the Children's Mass, Christmas Eve 2002, at St. Louis Cathedral 
in New Orleans.

We Americans are privileged to be able to practice our religion openly. I pray this Christmas Eve that this will be true forever.

I wish fellow Christians a Merry Christmas, 
and to our Jewish brethren Happy Hanukkah!
May we live in peace in the coming year 
of 2017.

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Moving Time

In the Midst of Packing January 3, 2017

I will be moving soon to a smaller home and close to my youngest son, Daddy of Miss Bright Eyes. So I’m taking a break- I have been purging for weeks now, but I’m not finished. Whew!  So I won’t be posting till after the move and settling into this sweet abode.

Happy 10th day of Christmas!
