Wishing you Peace and Harmony
This past year was quite a busy one for me.  I continue to work at Clackamas Community College but now work in the Registrar’s office mostly doing database entries. I am still involved with the Chrysalis Women Writers group on the campus.  Lots of good writing emerges from the women and you can find their books online.  I worked on the house that Clay and I had lived in for 17 years on Josi Court in Oregon City and got it all fixed up and sold.  For a while I lived in the basement apartment of a friend until I could find a place.  I finally found a manufactured home to move in to and on December 1st I did just that.  I am still unpacking and trying to organize everything.
I have not yet discovered my Christmas cards and only found ½ of my decorations, so this year no tree with ornaments and no cards via mail. 
My two cats, Kala and Mooshoo, are doing well after 2 moves.  At first they seemed confused.  In the basement apartment

 they heard the dog upstairs, which is something they are not used to, so they would hiss at the ceiling and hide under the bed. It was funny.  Now they are settled in to the manufactured home and seem to like it. 
It is located on a quiet little cul-de-sac.

When I am all settled in I hope to have friends over for an open house!
Now I just have to show my adorable "grandkids," Bella and Brogan and dog, Maddie.
May the Lord Bless you all in the upcoming New Year!


  1. Merry Christmas to you, Rose. I love your cats' names! Are you letting them roam around the neighbourhood?

  2. Yes,those grandkids are adorable. Sounds like you are one busy lady. Enjoy this day and make it a great one.

  3. Rose, what a lovely written sentiment of the year's passing. Looking at your previous post, things are really coming together in the house. Can't wait for a grand finale tour! I know it's going to be wonderful. (You are a talented decorator)
    Keep up your many talented and varied interests in the new year dear girl, may much happiness and new challenges land in your lap and here's wishing you a truly blessed Christmas straight from the heart.
