What'll I do









I sang this song as a lullaby for my babies.  I learned it around the time of The Great Gatsby movie....the first one.  

The empty nest is nearly here.  Emma will move to Missouri and the idea of her starting a family far away makes me so sad.  Just as sad as I am that I can't be near Matthew, Melinda and the boys and having Patrick and Shelby in California is awful.  Who knows where my Katie will be.


I've got my work cut out for me to bear this transition bravely,
because all my eggs were in one basket and I loved it that way.

It's all I ever wanted.

What'll I do,
Donna

Happy February!

Things are quiet here at our humble home.  Most weekends I can not rise from the couch.  So I live vicariously thru my sister Cindy and her husband.  They are making the most of the winter this year with ice skating, tubing and snowshoe luminary walks.

I watched the most recent episodes of Outlander last weekend.
Thirteen episodes. Two days.  It was a very good season.










William and Catherine have been busy.
They are on a Scandinavian tour.  
(Golden Globes were too boring.  All black.)
Therefore I will show you the colorful and interesting dresses and outfits that Catherine has been wearing this week.




Sporty Kate.  This is how we all look at recess.  Our fur poms are not fox tho.





The crowd was stingy with flowers for Catherine. 
William needs a hat.








What an interesting dress.






Remember when Diana wore this red houndstooth fabric?
Cute little Chanel purse.





Katie wore this pretty white dress under the red houndstooth,
I like it.  





I like this dress very much.  Especially the sleeves. :o)






Brown is the new black.
I like it.




Very sweet.






How lovely.




Just glowing and flowing and looking gorgeous.

Harry and Meghan were out attending an official function and Meghan wore pants.
I think she looks perfect.  Like that blue on Harry too.





That is it for today.
Stay warm and take care!

Encourage one another,
Donna
