Grandma died about midnight on Dec. 29th. I am so glad we went to see her last summer. She was a very special person. She was a hard worker and never complained. For years she came to visit, riding the bus from Northern Minnesota to Michigan every year until about seven years ago, when she decided the bus was getting to be too much for her, and we would have to come see her. She taught me how to make a good pie crust. She gave Charlie heck for putting his feet on the furniture. She never got a drivers license (or drove a car). She wouldn't have a microwave in her house. She never had a critical word to say about anyone. She was always happy to do whatever everyone else wanted to do. She loved good food. Everyone loved her. Grandma was 94.

I've just been so busy DOING my day that writing about it has become too much of a chore. However, at Flickr, a group has done "A Day in the Life Of... " for Dec. 21, the winter solstice. That was fun. Go there for a record of my day on the 21st.
