THE DECK IS DONE!!!

Our deck is done, our deck is done. Woo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo! I will post pictures soon. Prepare yourself. You may get jealous. Everyone is invited to come over and sit on it. Our house is on a hill above the lake, so on the deck, you feel a little like you are on a cruise ship. Yes, I did the “I’m king of the world” thing immediately. And, even bigger news, Colleen lost a tooth at dinner tonight! We aren’t...

Garden party!

Today was a GOOD day! My mom and dad came up, so I got to see my daddy in street clothes and on his feet! He had double bypass open heart surgery two weeks ago and I haven’t seen him for more than a week — before chemo. We were all anxious to see each other. Mom needed some help with an anniversary party she is planning for their Model A car club. So, I did the program, the newsletter and helped a little bit with some picture...

We are envisioning a super-fresh salad every...

We have had a couple of people offer to help with cutting up trees, and numerous people offering to help in any way, so we’d like to have folks over tomorrow afternoon, Saturday April 22nd for cutting up the trees, hauling the wood around, cutting off limbs, burning limbs, etc. I would LOVE an excuse to grill for folks and have a pitch-in type dinner. We’ll supply the chops, brats, dogs and burgers — you bring your...

The ghost in my boob.

That dang pain is back, but almost a ghostly echo of its former self. I suppose I need to make an appointment to see my doctor. I can’t walk around grabbing myself in public every time I get a shooting pain! The neighbors will talk. Dad’s party was a blast. He had a lot of fun too. I’m so glad we did it. It was our “life is short, celebrate while you got it” party. It’s a lot better to party with...

I guess it was nothing.

My breast pains are pretty much gone. I can still feel a sensation from what I imagined was the origination point, but I have no way of knowing where they were coming from. I’m still getting that “leaking milk” feeling once in a while, but it’s subsiding, too. It must have been some sort of infection that worked itself out. The news conference is over. It’s official: Mother Theodore will be named a saint....
