Poppy now lies in the flower border, near the bush she liked to sit under. Twelve bright red tulips are planted over her, and a sturdy oriental poppy in the middle of them.
I don't know if I'll stay in this house, though. I had thought to stay here 'for ever' but now ... I'm not so sure. About anything.
But life goes on regardless.
I don't celebrate Christmas - I haven't done so for years, as I have no religious belief and the commercial frenzy surrounding the non-religious celebrations quite frankly sickens me - but friends and acquaintances do, so I made some fabric origami stars as small gifts. They are very easy to make.
