I was so excited about today. We had planned a get-together with some friends here at our house so that Jeff and I could do a dress rehearsal for our upcoming Here We Come A-Caroling programs next weekend. Larry and I got busy as soon as we got home from Miami, putting up lights and cleaning house. I baked, he got in firewood, and we laid in a supply of goodies. I was looking forward to finally meeting Connie of WV Fur and Root blog, to seeing my friend Susan whom I met through her blog Stony River while she was still living in Ireland, and to seeing the fine poet Sherrell of Sherrell's Poetry Pages and other good friends and neighbors.
So, here we are, all dressed up and no place to go, to quote my father. I'm disappointed even though I know it was the right decision. We'll try to reschedule; Larry and I can't possibly eat all these cookies! And I still want to enjoy the company of friends, singing and laughing and enjoying the season. I prefer everyone to be safe first, though.
