Happy News and Cupcakes!

Happy news from our direction, or should I say, from Illinois, tonight.  Marty is home. After a long few weeks of not knowing, Marty was transferred to Barnes hospital in St Louis last Friday, and by yesterday they seemed to have the right combination of meds to control the voices in his head and stop the terrible tremors.  We are still waiting to see how he will do at home, but are very relieved that he is HOME.  Thank you all so much for all the wishes, prayers and positive thoughts....they are appreciated so very appreciated.

Meanwhile, here on Cape Cod, I was busy dog sitting last weekend, and dealing with severe allergies. I think they are finally under control with a big dose of Allegra every 12 hrs and a visit to my acupuncturist.
Looking forward to being with LM and Ms Graysea this weekend.... although I know I will have to work hard to distract her from gazing at her boyfriend....those two are besotted.

I've enjoyed two wonderful programs on PBS this past week....one on Whales and Dolphins and the other about the Himalayas.  Very captivating offerings from the PBS Nature series.  I've been happily quilting while I watch....I'm such a multi-tasker and would love to break the habit, except it always feel so good to have something tangible to appreciate. Amidst all the other activities, I am also reading a good book "The Great Husband Hunt" by Laurie Graham - it's covering one woman's zestful life from before WWI. 
During all these at-home activities, I've been enjoying mini-bites of a glorious cupcake brought to me from Brooklyn Heights, NY last Sunday by my wonderfully thoughtful and fun co-worker, Christopher.  The masterpiece of deliciousness came from Crumb Bakery.  Oh my, I am so happy it is not nearby, although they do take orders on line!

Feeling very relieved and grateful and sated right now.....

SO HAPPY!!! YAY MARTY!!

I too do handiwork while I watch TV--I can't just sit there and watch--gotta be doing two things at once. I want to get that book! I need a good read right about now. Have a wonderful weekend--free from worry.

LOL....Christopher brought me the large cupcake and if you look at the Crumbs website it was the "Good Buddy" cupcake- vanilla on vanilla with multi-colored jimmies. DIVINE!

This is great news! I'm so happy to hear your brother is better.

I wish I'd seen the PBS on Wales. I was able to visit there about 18 years ago. It is where my family is from a few generations back. I loved the land and the people. I felt right at home.

as our Associate Stylist, this week’s Style File, Abercrombie Fitch Outletis perhaps one of the most knowledgable when it comes to styling FP merchandise. She gets the Vibram Fivefingers Sale and its multi facets – always pairing it with fun new looks in exciting ways. It’s rare that you find her without at least one piece of Free People worked into a look. Louis Vuitton OutletFree People apparel encourages a showcasing of personality; though, and her personal touch definitely shines through. The overall look has all the pixie and retro of FP girl, Molly, mixed in with fashion-cool neons and leather. true religion jeansThere is much inspiration to be taken from how this lady puts things together.
