******1. The flu apparently was over, but I felt very weak to go from one room to the other was as if I had done 100 km ! And still no Christmas decoration, it was about time. My moral was plummeted !
Fortunately Mr. G. who had always disliked to do the shopping, now apparently likes it, or maybe he has no choice so I make a list and off he goes. Unfortunately he doesn't read so instead of buying my face cleaner he bought humid toilet paper, because the package looks similar. Now you know with what I have to clean my face !
Finally I pulled myself together and spread balls, angels, father Christmas, garlands etc all over the living room and in the entrance. Then I was exhausted for the rest of the day, but it was made !
Outside Mr. G. had put up the two reindeer which illuminate our frontyard, unfortunately one has lost the lights around his head so we have one headless reindeer when it gets dark.
Each year our city invites the seniors to a concert followed by a drink.
This year it was Jacques Brel "a Belgian singer, songwriter, actor and director who composed and performed literate, thoughtful, and theatrical songs that generated a large, devoted following—initially in Belgium and France, later throughout the world. He was widely considered a master of the modern chanson". (Wikipedia)
Jacques died in 1978 ago, but his songs are still in fashion. The man who sang like him, was fantastic, if you closed your eyes you could hear the real Jacques. I hesitated to go, but I so much wanted to. As I was sitting, and had no effort to do it was OK, but I didn't go to the reception too many people and I couldn't sit. So I went home. Nicole told me that I hadn't missed anything.
4. Feeling a little stronger in the mornings I went to Aqua gym and it really did me good. I even managed to follow the exercises because in the water you feel as light as a feather and when you get out as heavy as an elephant.
5. We had our yearly Christmas celebration in our painting class. First I thought I couldn't go, but then I decided to go to take pictures, because I am also responsible for the Facebook page and then go home.
Everybody had brought something to eat and we had a lot of fun I just sat on a chair once my duty done, so I could stay a little longer. Then I left. I will see them again in January. Another year ends.
The rest of the day I spent in my recliner recuperating !
to all of you
