Busy Bernie - But Happy
Hello my friends, I hope you are all enjoying your summer. We have been having heavy rain and many thunder and lightening storms the past few days and between storms we have glorious sunshine. It is hard to explain, but I don't mind the rain or the hot sun.
Since blogger has changed their templates I have been trying to find a wallpaper I like. You all know how much I like pink and I have found one I really like but am still working on making it fit to the new templates. I was spoiled as I really like the wallpaper I had thanks to Cindy of Who, What, Where and When.....but I have no choice but to change it so change it I will. She tried to help me again this evening but we were forced from the phone when another thunder/lightening storm began.
A few weeks ago Holly, from Banner Haus News did posts of the alphabet. Her letters were so pretty that I saved them to my computer so I have put my initial up and will leave it this way for a while. I knew I would use these beautiful letters sometime. My eyes and "brain" are burning trying to figure all this out. I was spoiled as I really liked my blog the way it was thanks to Cindy, I have found another pink wallpaper I really like though and.....eventually I will have it the way I want it.....I hope! Thanks to Wanda I was able to remove the tag, honestly Wanda I just kept removing gadgets until the tag disappeared.......I am so blessed with friends who don't mind helping a slow learning blogger.
I have been busy since Fallon left. I hear from her every day either by text or e-mail. She is having a wonderful time. She says Taylor Swift rocks......I am so happy for her but I miss her and am looking forward to her coming home. She is growing up so fast. I had my hair cut and streaked, lunch with friends, doctor's appointment, test, and visits from good friends. I think that is my favorite thing about summer, people stop in more often than through the winter months. I love sharing a cup of coffee with friends, I smile each time the door bell rings as I wonder who may be on the other side of the door. The surprise is nice but oh the company is better as we sit on the deck catching up on each others news. (My nephew offered to fix my deck next summer).... ..yay!
My friend Avinash and I had lunch at Red Lobster on Thursday. She is an old friend from GE days. She looks absolutely wonderful, I realized how much I missed her great smile as we laughed through lunch.
My meeting with Dr. John's patient went well, in fact she stopped in this afternoon with a page full of questions she had written down. Somehow today she seemed stronger, more in control and even better she seemed eager to begin treatment and fight this horrible disease. I was so pleased with her attitude, although I know from experience it is so easy to be up one day and down the next. Keeping a balance is a real challenge. Somehow I think she will do very well with the hand she has been dealt. She has good doctors and the love and support of family and friends.
Tomorrow I am babysitting a friends 10 month old baby. I am so looking forward to having her, she is beautiful and nothing brings me calm and happiness faster than a baby. They are unconditional love and it is impossible not to smile and enjoy the moment while holding a baby. I plan on taking her for a walk to the park if it is nice outside, if it rains then we'll just play with my tupperwear on a blanket on the carpet in the livingroom. I do keep a bag of toys for the little ones when they visit so I have lots of toys and stuffed animals for her to play with.
Have a great week my friends..........God Bless and many, many hugs :-)
