I’ve been very lazy this week, haven’t I? The week between Christmas and New Years should be laid back and relaxed, shouldn’t it? I have sewed lots and read another good book – almost finished.
I have some pictures of Chicklet but they are not very good. She is very quick and doesn’t want to pose for a nice picture. I am quite sure I can safely say Chicklet is a “she” by now – there has been no goofy crowing and that’s the first sign. She is turning into a beautiful chicken – her mohawk has tamed down and her speckled feathers are lovely. I will keep trying to snap a deserving photo of my pretty little Chicklet.
We’ve had a sad day. Our church family lost a member last night- Margaret ‘s (the organist I play with) son, Mark Jass age 51 died suddenly from a heart attack at his home. The shock for the family and all of us as friends and neighbors is great, the news is still quite unbelievable. Margaret and I have played together for many funerals but this will be one I’ll have to do by myself – for Margaret. The funeral is not until Wednesday, complicated by the holiday, so it gives me more time to prepare. What a sad start to 2017.
