4 more days.........

Four more days until I am in Florida!!  So exciting to know I will see my daughter and family, and also my dear friend, Sue.

Most everything is lined up for packing that I will start on Thursday.  I am such a planner and love every minute of the getting ready.  Teddy has been a big help in making some presents to bring, and my daughter and I are having the best time talking about what meals we have to enjoy together, and what delicious things we will cook.

The big hitch in all these plans is knowing I am going without my beloved, LM. He plans to cook a Thanksgiving dinner for his son, John and GF, Vanessa.  There may be others, as well. Sure hope it all works out. We both know, for sure, that we will miss each other very much.  He feels very strongly that I should have this time with my daughter without having to worry about entertaining him, as well.

I've a few shingles lurking about still, and this morning, I had a breakout of a whole new batch.  I don't feel sick, so it is all tolerable.

Daughter, Sara turns 51 on Saturday.  Hard to believe. I'm very proud of her these days, as she is working very hard, along with her husband, to save her marriage, after several years apart, they are gathering up the pieces and working with a therapist to be a family again. I know, Ms Samantha is one happy 8 year old.

In light of world affairs right now, I am doing my little part by sending as much love out in to the world as I can, love to all and may peace radiate throughout your lives.

PS.....Sure loved those cats at the G20 conference.

Countdown to Florida

 Some random photos on Saturday morning....

 Teddy took this great photo of his parents recently....love the perspective!!

 Alison made this beautiful salad when we visited my brother, Sam and his wife  recently. YUM!
 Sister, Bebo (Susan) with Teddy on her recent visit
 Brother, Ev and I got to cook together on his recent visit!!

Happy Saturday, everyone!!

Finally I have a very positive turnaround in my health, and the shingles are about 2/3 on their way to oblivion and off my neck, head, back and arms. WHEW. Not as bad as it could have been, though.

Yesterday I was invited to attend a vibrational healing session and it was truly life-changing. I am still hearing and feeling the reverberation of the music from the singing bowls.  Feel renewed.

Alison is working today, so I am with Teddy all day instead of with LM.  We will see each other later. It is a beautiful day, and shortly, Teddy and I are headed out to see what sort of fun/mischief we can  get in to. Most likely it will involve a visit to the library, a walk in downtown Falmouth, maybe a visit to the french bakery, and whatever else happens in to our path along the way.  At 6 am today we saw a beautiful sunrise which lit up the sky and highlighted the clear view of the moon sliver and Venus....so brilliant. 

2 weeks from today, LM will be driving me to the airport early Saturday morning, and I will be arriving in Orlando shortly after noon. Daughter, Anne will meet me, and we will then drive north to St. Augustine to see my dear, dear friend, Sue.  We will stay near her at a hotel on the beach, and do a little catching up and some touristy things, of course. After that little visit, we will go to Anne's house in Ocala, where I will stay until the week after Thanksgiving.  What fun to think about Thanksgiving with a part of my family I do not see that often! 

This week, I spent a lot of time getting things ready for the trip, and also catching up with old friends.  Life is happy and fulfilling!! I am so grateful.

Teddy beckons, so it is time for the day's expedition to begin.

Love to all!
