We're having rain. It has rained just about every day for a while, some days not much more than a smattering, but it is nice to have it, nonetheless. Today I've had about 1/4 inch. Nothing to write home about, but it's good enough for the blog!! LOL! I noticed that the hills were light green today when I drove back from Capitan, what a nice sight!
Gail came over this morning with two teenagers who carried my big overstuffed recliner to the bed of my truck. We drove to Gail's and they carried it into her house. I like the recliner, but it is very big, and took up a lot of room in my living room. I noticed that I had not sat in it for at least two months, so I decided it was time to let it go. It looks really good at Gail's, and I have two chairs in it's place here! I brought the "rescued rocker" in and it looks nice in here. My living room seems better, more open. I really like the new look.
This evening I was planning to watch The Bucket List, and Gail came over to watch it with me. Good movie. I missed it when it was in the theaters. I'm going to go to bed in a few minutes and watch To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar. I don't think I've ever seen it. If so I can't remember it.
I had a sad phone call this week. It was from a friend from KC. She worked for me and then when we both were doing private practice, we worked together and consulted with one another. Her husband has been battling pancreatic cancer for over a year. A few months ago I got happy news that the cancer markers in his blood were very, very low, and giving hope that he might be one of the lucky ones to beat it. Then his system stopped absorbing the nutrients in his food, and he was losing weight rapidly. He was put on meds to help the nutrition assimilation, and he seemed to be stabilizing a bit. One of the physiological effects of nutrition not being processed and utilized in the body is that the walls of blood vessels become thin. Jeff died from an aneurysm, suddenly and quickly just a few days ago. He was just 46 years old. Please keep Ellen and the family in your meditations and prayers.
Ellen said she really wants to get out of town, away from the memories for a few days, and I think she is going to come here. I don't know when just yet, but I suspect it will be fairly soon. She has no obligations right now. The children are grown, her parents who lived with them are at her sister's for now. I know how much it helped me to be away from the familiar for a while after Glenn's death, so I hope she will take advantage this.
Well, I'm working tomorrow, so I'd better get to bed. Looks like I'd better save the movie for another night. I'm really tired! I probably won't get the Sunday Funnies out tomorrow. Sorry. I'll post tomorrow night, and who knows what might come of it!! :D
