Happy December, Happy Day!

Happy December! It is my birthday month and one of my favorite months of the year.

I had a busy day but I got some good news when I saw the kidney specialist. I was so nervous and worried. The doctor was so kind and caring. Oh, how I have been blessed with such wonderful doctors. She started the visit off by saying how much I have been through in the past 3 months and wanted me to talk about it. WOW....pretty cool to have a doctor understand. Of course, that made me tear up and look for the Kleenex box. Anyway, she explained that my kidney levels were fine until they put me in the hospital. She thinks it may be the medications, so she made some changes and wants me to be call if I have any problems. I have to have more lab tests on Monday and again in two weeks and then we will have a conference call on December 28. I can do that!

I have been decorating all week, so I needed to just get out for awhile. I did some errand and then had tea when I returned home in one of my best December teacups/ You can't beat Royal Albert! I especially like this pretty cup and saucer.

I seem to share this little miss every year, but I just love her. I have had this little birthday angel since I was a little girl. I don't know how she survived all the moves when I was growing up. She just makes me smile and I keep her in the kitchen so I see her everyday.

I have to share a darling early birthday gift that my friend Nancy sent t o me. It's a tea Advent calendar. I have never seen one and think it's just darling. I am having a hard time opening it! I am always like that with pretty soap or stationery. Funny, I know.

I can't remember who gave me this Christmas teaspooon, but I love using it every season.

The day was slipping away when I took this photo. I love the soft lights of December. It's been a long day and time for bed. Happy December.
