The Rooster Crows

Live from LM's this morning, his neighborhood rooster crowing loudly on the crisp, sunny and beautiful day.  Ms G is basking in the sunshine as we bustle about to startt he day.  Clothes are already drying on the line!  LM is participating in a fishing derby today. He began fishing at midnight, returned about 5 am for a snooze, and is on his way to scour the surf once more.  It all ends at 4 pm today and his club, including us, will gather at a waterfront restaurant to celebrate with a dinner and find out who caught the biggest fish. So far it is not the usual suspect.  Meanwhile, I will spend part of this day with Teddy and DIL, Alison. 

This week went by in a blur.....being a short work week made it extra busy, and my spare time was taken up with a lot of sewing. Coaching some friends with their quilting projects has spurred me on to complete some of my own, and momentum has built once more.

I'm in a period of pain again, and the past two days have been a struggle to keep it at a tolerable level...shooting pains most everywhere it seems, but most bothersome is in my neck, jaw and down one leg.  I am assuming it is just arthritis, but will be seeing my physician in the next week.  It seemed to intensify with the cooler weather.

We have exciting news from Samantha's front. She will be starting Pre-Kindergarten on Monday...
My boss's wife runs the program so Samantha will most certainly thrive in this new chapter of her sweet life.

Sending out HAPPY BIRTHDAY wishes to our friend, Nan in NY today....we won't mention the number but just say she wears it well, and wish her a beautiful celebration with dear friends.  Sounds like it will be delicious and beautiful. Lots of purrs from Ms G, too.

Happy weekend all!

Sewing sounds like a great project to start as the weather changes. I'm sorry the pain is kicking up again. Have you tried massage? I find that really helps me.

Oh No--pain--again? How can we live like this for the next 20 years?
