The day started early again today. I slept very lightly last night and by 4:30 I was ready to get up but hated to move so I lay there and at 5 I heard Shirley’s message come in. She waits now until 8 before telling me she is up, that way she doesn’t wake me before 5. I am sure if I were asleep I would never hear the little ding that tells me I have a message but usually I am wide awake just waiting for 5 so I can get up. This morning we talked for half an hour or more and then I got up. I did the usual, getting my letters written, and myself organized and visited with Holly for a while. Holly was to stay home today and bake the cakes she needs for her party for her help on the 19th. But it was not to be, there were three people who called in sick with the flue and with a full house checking out today and another full house checking in she and Landen had to go in to do some of the house keeping work that was not being covered by the sick people and of course they are under staffed anyways so both of them had their work cut out for them.
I got the banana bread made, two loaves for the freeze and one for Landen. Then Luke and I worked on his school work. We stopped for lunch and then worked again in the afternoon. By 3:30 I was ready to quite and take a nap. I was just finishing up the dishes and organizing the kitchen when Holly called to say they were on their way home, they would stop at the store and be here shortly. That meant she was going to try and do the cooking tonight. She did not want me to help and I was glad, I am tired! So I finished getting supper ready and then left the kitchen to her. Holly is still in the kitchen working . Luke and Landen decorated the tree for their mother. I am now going to see if I can help Holly and then I am going to bed. Have a great day and we will all start again in the morning.
And now we are ready for Santa. Landen has his suit and will be Santa at the hotel, maybe he will visit here too.
