Hello and thank you for visiting me again and most joyous of holiday seasons to you and yours! It's been almost one year exactly since I have posted here at Enchanted Revelries. It's been a long 2022 here in New Haven ... but things are beginning to look up and I'm feeling more energized. So, I'm going to make a start at a return to my blog.
AND, I've had to give up driving (permanent issue). So, not only is it inconvenient to get around, I don't just get up and run out to do an errand, since it requires a transport scheduling (they have to be able to wheel me into the van in my wheelchair).
That's it. But, the year is over, and I'm improving dramatically. My visiting nurse who comes daily to drain the catheter from my collapsed lung says that the volume is diminished noticeably by the week. I've done a little baking for the holidays (though nowhere as much as I used to do!).
And just to show you how shallow I really am, the worst part of this whole ordeal is that the chemo took out my hair, beard and eyelashes.
I've always loved the Nutcracker Suite ... Here is our tribute tree to Clara and the rest
Here is our Valentines tree ... I should probably wait until Valentines Day to put it up, but I decided to go ahead as I was on a roll! That ugly cord isn't nearly as obnoxiously obvious and visible in real life!
And another holiday-specific theme tree - our Hallowe'en tree - these ornaments (almost all made by various craftsmen and artists) are too special not to be seen except for a week or two in October!
Well, that's it for today. Again, thank you for visiting me again after all this time! I hope to be back soon as I continue to get back in the swing of things!
