At the Hop

Saturday morning and Danny and the Juniors are singing "At the Hop" making me dance around the kitchen as I prepare a pot roast for the crockpot. It's going to be a crystal clear crisp Fall day.  At 7:30 I was out hanging sheets on the line, and the air, although cold, brought me a great burst of energy and clarity. After some tea, LM and I are headed out to take a little hike in a pretty conservation area.

This was a fractious and sometimes troubling week as we face the very frail condition of Kristi's mother and the fact that we must get some help for here even though she doesn't want it.  So as we work on a way accomlish that goal, we are thankful for all we have and will head out to walk knowing the answers will come as we work on healing ourselves.

Today is Dad's birthday.......I miss you, Dad, more than you could ever know.

 Some old photos of Dad and Mum...top 2 are with Jason as a baby, and the R photo is with sister, Bebo (Susan), bottom L has Marty in the background, R is with Jason.  So much love!

Happy weekend to everyone!  More trip stories and pictures to come....
Love to all.

I am catching up with reading blogs and so happy to hear you were dancing while you worked. It helps sometimes, doesn't it?

I hope you find the answers for what must be done. I fear those days aren't far off for me and my mother.

I miss my dad so much also. Loved seeing photos of yours.
