Today is simply an entry into my online "E-journal"....thoughts coursing through my mind and coming from my heart....
It is February 8, 2012, a Wednesday. It is chilly and the sun is rising outside. Temperature is 22 degrees. Some snow flurries yesterday, not amounting to much. The streets are white. The leftover of the past snow is almost gone. The pups don't mind the windchill.
It has been five days since Kobe's surgery and he is doing well. No more pain meds. The three dogs are with me in my room as I type...as usual.
I am listening to Adagio for strings as I journal. ~ such a moving piece. I am grateful for beautiful music to listen to.
Today is my Dad's birthday. He is 78 years old. He doesn't act or look it, so it is hard to comprehend this fact. He stays active and busy. I am sad that I will not be there to help celebrate the occasion. Usually this always involved a chocolate cake. I miss seeing him. **of course he is playing a golf game today...continuously taking advantage of the warm weather still happenin' in NC...60's....
this time last year...Triple layer chocolate cake...
I am missing communication with my Marine. Sea training off the coast on a Naval ship with soldiers and sailors from other countries. Usually I will have texts from him when the signal is good, but his brand new phone was stolen from his truck the night before they boarded ships to leave, so this time I am not hearing from him....:-(
My Kit Kat girl texted me a few times and called Monday to get some instructions about the way I prepare asparagus and baby spuds...she is cooking more and more lately because she is motivated ....yes....got a "beau" in her life ...*would love to meet him. Nothing more motivating for a gal to brush up on culinary skills than to have a man's stomach to please... ;-)
Missing both my girl and Jonny too. Try to touch base every week to keep up with them. Happy that they live together.
a photo Kat sent of Jonny - wearing a shirt she bought for him.
Kam had another out-of-town game last night....so I did not see him until LATE. (**they won!) Sometimes it is close to midnight when he opens the back door and I have gone to bed...I will be glad when basketball is finished!!!
Number 33 is missed at home!!! (Did have a home game Saturday. The regular season is about to wrap up and then finals begin...first game at home!)
Divine Double chocolate cupcakes - oh my rich...
Watched this Reece Witherspoon chic flic Monday night. It was good. A comedy love story.
Can you say Serendipity??? Found the twin to the Toile Neck Roll pillow... one year later, 1000+ miles away... in a different thrift store. THIS is why I love Thrifting...it is a veritable smorgasboard of surprises... Now the settee is complete!
There are days...I am happy to surrender to "faux" flowers for the cheer they bring in the Wintertime. See that snow still frozen out there?
Ending with a thought for Today...
hugs and hearts....
