1. I got to go for a walk, enjoying this absolutely BEAUTIFUL fall day!

2. I had to do some public speaking today (something I normally DREAD) and I had a good time!

What about you? Why makes today a good day for you?

Even the seemingly "nothing" days are good. Today, nothing in particular happened, but I kinda enjoyed that. Yesterday, my wife and I tracked down two old friends, who were in the same health care center recuperating from knee replacement operations. We'd been trying to reach them by phone for weeks with no luck. The day before yesterday, we were able to visit two other friends who we hadn't seen in a long while.. one is the women I've mentioned in other threads who suddenly went blind one day (after not even wearing glasses up to that point.) She was in very high spirits (she's in her mid-90's) because she was feeling good that day. I notice that she corrects herself now when she kept saying, I'ts so good to... pausing where she naturally would say "see you again," and then saying... "have you here again." There is no way we could have lifted her spirits half as much as she lifted ours. That same day, we went to a picnic with one of the church choirs, and we had a great time, with abundant food and friendship. Got a chance to sit and talk with my Messenger friends Joe and Frankie. And then, yesterday, Joe, Frankie and I sang with the Men's Chorus, and Joe and I shared the lead on a song.

Today, I needed just what I got. A chance to finish trimming the hedge, and then watching a Miss Marple movie this evening with my wife.

Life is good.

Jerry

My daughter and grandson made it safely to their destination after a seven hour drive. It's the first time we've been apart, for any length of time, since he was born 10 months ago come tomorrow. I miss them, but oh! the Silence! It's nice...for a change. By tomorrow I won't know what to do with myself!**bg**

Great thread, Michelle, thanks,

Jerry,

It's so odd how people use figures of speech, or don't use them. I'm blind and I use phrases like, "watch TV" or "see you later" all the time ... but maybe that's because I was born blind and don't think of them as anything other than figures of speech. ...

Sorry, I saw that comment ;) and had to add my two cents. :)

Got to see Owen who has an ear infection and is cranky. But he's still cute.

Sang a song (YES, ME!!!) at the Nursing Home on Sunday...OK, ok, so it was only Seamus' 'I Know a Song That Gets On Everybody's Nerves' but I did it!!! In Public!!
Spent all day Saturday with daughter and Seamus Kennedy.
Beautiful fall weather here too. I miss my clothes line and the smell of 'hung outside' bedding.

Teresa:

I have other friends who are blind, and they too say, "It's so nice to see you." It just seems natural. They were either blind from birth, or at least for most of their life. I don't know what is harder (never having experienced either.) My Mother's Father went blind in his 80's, and became a very bitter man. I guess blindness is like other physical handicaps. How you deal with it depends on your attitude toward life. My Grandfather who went blind was always pretty bitter and hard-hearted. His blindness just made him moreso.

One of the people I most greatly admire is Kathy Leigh Johnson.. a wonderful woman I met at the Adirondack Folk/Gospel Festival many years ago. Kathy had everything imaginable going against her. Blindness was only part of the problem. And yet, she persevered and was living a very positive life when I met her. A few years after that, she met a wonderful young man who was a minister (and also a musician) and they wre married. He is blind, too.

For those of us like me, who have been blessed with wonderful health, there is no way of truly understanding what it is like to have a seriously limiting handicap. But, it seems like everything else... you find people who live fully productive, rich lives who are handicapped, just as you meet people in perfect health who bitch constantly.

Only goes to show.

Kathy had a machine that could "read" letters for her, which made it easy to communicate. She also had a computer that could do the same.
How great!

Jerry

It was a good day for me for a lot of reasons: temps fell well below 100 for the first time in a while and I was able to leave the windows open, fresh air blowing through, sound of the fountain filling the house until noon; I started another writing class today with a wonderful teacher and enjoyed every minute of the 3 hours; came home, got a bite to eat and then went to a new session only a miraculous 15 miles from me, with really good musicians and great music; and...it's still 2 days until I have to hae gallbladder surgery. This was a very good day.

I learned a new chord on my guitar.
Dishes are done.
Laundry is on the line.
Floors are swept.
Visuals for my presentation were a hit!
Millie, aka Stinky Cat, curled up with me last night (Normally, she is Papa's girl)
I was able to rearrange my schedule so that I can do something in the middle of the day that is important to me.   :)

Lots of great company & music in a wonderful location.

Today is a good day for 2 reasons.....

1. The out pouring of care, concern and love for Kendall here on the Mudcat gives me faith in humanity.

2. While I was dusting (dusting around here is a good thing in itself...but I digress), I found a little, square, purple sticky note written in the hand of my very favorite 12 year old. It reads: "Thank you for taking very good care of me. You rock on the violin. Love you. Bye. Veronica"

Today is a good day because I finished an assignment ahead of time (YEA ME!), there was a 4 month old baby in the teaching lounge for a bit today and she was SOOOOOOOOOO SWEET...a head full of dark, dark hair and big, bright eyes....very alert! What a precious little thing she is! Another good thing about today is that my blood sugars have all been running normal (some lows..but not too bad) and physically I feel GREAT! I was out taking photographs of the sunflowers up in the field, romping with the dog...and just having some fun! Soon I will settle into the final stages of touch ups for my presentation tomorrow!

Yup Amos. It was a bit scary being in a tornado warning / tornado watch area for a couple of days, and some of the high winds were also a bit scary, but we were very fortunate. No damage to any of our stuff, and no damage to life or limb.

Today has been a good day for painting outdoors with a cool(ish) breeze playing about the patio area. I'm enjoying the painting a lot. I've started exploring the design esthetic of the Arts and Crafts Movent from the second half of the 1800s and the first few decades of the 1900s. I'm using it for painted canvas table mats. It's a lot of fun.

This movement, by the way, is a very interesting one to read about. It had many philosophical similarities to other movements that have produced a lot of beautiful designs, such as the Shaker Movement and the Arts and Crafts Guilds of pre-industrial Europe.

3. Blood work completed without any fuss (YEA LIZ! I love my nurse!)

4. I did not go to class today, instead, I took flowers to one of my all time favorite teachers with a note that let her know how much I think of her. I left it in the office as a Happy Tuesday surprise..that made me feel good!

5. I had lunch with my Mom today.

6. I rolled around on the floor with the dog and we played until he was all tuckered out.

7. I played my violin and guitar today...I am finding that I really like to play (and listen to) something out of the norm for me....weird keys..haunting sounds....

8. Finally, today is a good day because the love of my life just walked in the door! Goodnight.

Going with her is the one thing I REALLY look forward to doing each month!

Also, I won a raffle for a basket full of goodies!!!

And finally, 26 baby chicks joined our family today. Five Silver Laced Wyandotts, 5 Rhode Island Reds, 5 Black Astrolops, 5 Buff Oringtons and 1 unknown exotic chicky. I had mail ordered these birds about a week ago and this morning the Post Office called to tell me they were here and to come get them. The minute I walked in the Post Office I told the clerk I could hear my package....he smiled and brought out this little box of peeping chicks. Everyone in the post office had to come look and pet them..the are SO CUTE!!!!!   :)

Today is a good day because I'm here in Maine with the man I love and we are taking off today for Connecticut where Sandy Paton is going to perform our wedding ceremony.

Today is a good day for many reasons.

1. I was up before the sun (before 6:00am, really) and started the day off with some fiddle tunes!

2. It was a glorious fall day today...bright blue skies, many trees still absolutely beautiful with bright yellow leaves and some free time to enjoy it all!

3. My husband was able to go out fishing for the day with a friend...something which he dearly loves and rarely has time for.

4. I spent the day with my Mom, celebrating her birthday! We went to a pumpkin patch where Mother Goose characters awaited us in various forms of pumpkins! It's a silly thing and I LOVE LOVE LOVE watching all the little children squealing with delight when they find their favorite nursery rhyme character made of pumpkins! We both enjoyed our day together immensely. :)

Yep....definately a good day! :)

Beautiful weather here in cranberry land. Getting a big grant out today..waiting for one last piece of paper. We could (hopefully..anything could happen) not have better world news than the peaceful death of Arafat, combined with the successful elections in Afghanistan. Bush has promised to redo the tax code..I sure hope so...so that all people benefit. We had a peaceful election, a graceful defeat, no terrorism stopped it. We are but pale imitations of the women of Afghanistan who didn't budge in their voting lines as bombs exploded nearby, but I think part of the large turnout was America saying to bin laden and other terrorists that we shall not be moved.   mg

Hey, Michelle: Today is a good day because my wife and I went to an uplifting, Spirit-filled church today... a black church where there is a lot of rejoicing, and the male chorus doesn't hold anything back.
I didn't have to shovel a lot of snow, we had a leisurely afternoon and then watched the movie Grand Canyon on DVD. It was a good day from the moment that I woke up without pain, opened my eyes and could see, and had arms to embrace my wife. I could walk across the room on my own, enjoy a simple breakfast of cold cereal and turn on the gas fireplace to take the chill off the back room.

Some people realize how blessed their lives are when they lose their mobility, or their sight, or a loved one. Or they lose a job, or fall on bad fortune and have to scrape by for the next meal. I don't want to wait until I lose something before I appreciate it. I want to be able to look back and say, "Yes, I lived every moment and praised God for every blessing."

Everything in life is a gift.

Hey Jerry,

   I agree with you!!!! I found today to be a good day for many reasons:

My grandfather fell in the bathroom and while he was mad, he is ok!

My grandmother was able to help him up!

I spent the day with the love of my life!

I played with the dogs!

I cooked a new recipe and it turned out great! Not only that, but it's good for me too!

The skies were blue and the sun was shining!

My diabetes is under control!

I cleaned out the fridge and didn't find anything growing!

I listened to some great music!

I hit repeat about 6 times to Soldier's Joy as I sang along and wished I had a bohdran (or however you spell it) to play along as I was riding in the truck!

I feel healthy today!

I got mail from 2 friends!

I made a date with someone for today and completely forgot about it and she isn't mad at me!!!

I found a baby shower card and a congratulations card for my girlfriend who is having TWINS!

Okay...that's enough for now! It has been a lovely day in many respects and it isn't just one or two things that have made today a good day. I can't speak for anyone else here, but making particular note of the good things is good for me. I might just start posting here everyday. :)

I used to live in Atlanta and attended church on the south side of Atlanta...black southern gospel churches....I LOVED THEM!!! The music and the people were incredible...consider yourself a lucky man!

Oh, yes:

My wife and I visited our former next door neighbor who has Alzheimers and is in a nursing home. He's been there a couple of years now. A week after he went into the home, his wife had a heart attack and died... a real tragedy and almost impossible for him to deal with, with all the confusion he has in his mind every day. Today he recognized us when we came in the room, and was talking lucidly. Sometimes when we visit, he doesn't know who we are. It was good to see him, and see him break into a big grin when we walked into his room.

I think I found them, Michelle..

Not really.

But today was a fine day... pretty uneventful.. downright ordinary, not exciting, quiet, peaceful, slow. But there is always music (I copied a CD of the Gospel Messengers for you today, Michelle which will be on it's way as soon as I copy a second one.) Been reading a challenging book recommended by my son Aaron. How great is it when your kids recommend books to you? Way cool.

Sometimes quiet is good. Slow is too.

Today is a good day because I was finally able to connect with a gentleman who I have been wanting to meet for over a month now. Long story made short.....he has been playing a violin for over 80 years. This summer someone stole his violins and he has been heartbroken....so heartbroken that his story made the local paper on Christmas morning. Tomorrow I will be meeting him for breakfast at his church, listening to him play his mouth organ and then giving him a violin. Just talking with him on the phone makes my entire being smile. :) I can't wait to meet him!

My daughter and her friend just arrived home safely from a trip to Hong Kong.

Her uncle who was to meet her at the airport in New York was involved in a major accident, but he is now in stable condition.

I did some gigs for Black History month and I am not totally broke.

It was only her blood sugar being down to 6 (yes, six), while earlier in the day it had been up to 650 (that's SIX-FIFTY). But now she IS stable!!

Brucie, your post reminded me of this poem:

I'm Fine, Thank You!

There is nothing the matter with me,
I'm as healthy as I can be.
I have arthritis in both my knees
And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze.
My pulse is weak, and my blood is thin,
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.

Arch supports I have for my feet,
Or I wouldn't be able to be on the street.
Sleep is denied me night after night,
But every morning I find I'm all right.
My memory is failing, my head's in a spin
But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.

The moral is this as my tale I unfold -
That for you and me who are growing old,
It's better to say "I'm fine" with a grin,
Than to let folks know the shape we are in.

How do I know that my youth is all spent?
Well, my "get up and go" has got up and went.
But I really don't mind when I think with a grin,
Of all the grand places my "get up" has been.

Old age is golden I've heard it said.
But, sometimes I wonder as I get into bed.
With my ears in the drawer, my teeth in a cup,
My eyes on the table until I wake up.
Ere sleep overtakes me, I say to myself
"Is there anything else I could lay on the shelf?"

When I was young my slippers were red,
I could kick my heels over my head.
Now I am old my slippers are black,
I walk to the store and puff my way back.

I get up each morning and dust off my wits
And pick up the paper and read the "Obits",
If my name is still missing I know I'm not dead,
So I have a good breakfast and go back to bed.

Today is a good day because my friends the Messengers are coming up to our home for practice this morning. ANy day when you're singing with friends is a good day. I also woke up at 4:30 this morning, with words to a new song forming in my head. I got right up and started working on it, which means I'll be a little blury-eyed for practice.

It's also a good day because I got the Master CD from Dennis Cook of Handful of Songs. I've been waiting to put it out on CD for at least ten years and thanks to Dennis, it's finally going to happen.

I might add that, as I PM'd brucie, today is The Good, The Bad and the Downright Ugly. Good days don't mean that there aren't any distressing things happening. Or even depressing things. It's a balance, most days. If there was a thread (and I'm definitely not encouraging anyone starting one) Today Is A Bad Day Because, I could post to that one, too.

No one said life would be easy.

"One thing certain we all know
All things wil come to pass
So when the darkness blinds the light
We know it will not last"

And that's enough of a reason to make this a good day. Even if it's bad, too..

Here he got an education, he is a scientist and working on his doctorate at Columbia University while doing research at the university. He worked very, very hard to earn his undergraduate degrees,two from Rutgers. He is a good man and the father of two of my grandchildren. I honor him for his work and family ethic. While he is the sterotypical latin male in some areas, he is also funny. You have got to love a man who has a sense of humor. And,to think he has developed one in two languages and two cultures.

Today is not really a good day. Thursday was a good day because it started bad and ended with me falling head over heels for someone unexpected and lovely. I am smitten. But today is not particularly a good day, because although I was supposed to spend it with this guy, he's backing off as there's someone he's been worshipping from afar for a while and it's all confusing for him. So I'll worship him from afar and console myself with the fact that there is life after the worst break up ever (3 years ago, yeah, I know, 'bout time I moved on properly!), and so today is sort-of a good day as I've realised that the light at the end of the tunnel is not the light of an oncoming train.

And then, we'd be joined at the house by one of our son's, a grandson and our daughter.

Tonight, we got a call that our niece is sick and they can't come, and our daughter hurt her leg in a fall and couldn't make it. That means that we have a whole turkey, two large trays of lasagna, enough chili to feed fifty, a big pot of collard greens, another of stuffing..

So, why is today a good day? Because it's a day I never saw before, and it was very joyful, preparing for tomorrow. The disappointment of not having a family gathering tomorrow can't take away the enjoyment of today.

And God knows. We'll have plenty to eat, tomorrow... :-)

Today is a good day because on my way to school, I stopped several times along the way to take some photos. It snowed 12 inches last night! The air is so crisp and the muffled sounds of the woods is intoxicating...I love that.

At first it might seem that today should fall under the "Today Is A Good Day Despite.." category. But for me, today is a good day because it is Good Friday. Even though this is the day that some of us reflect on Christ's dying on the cross, my focus is on the incomprehensible love that was shown by that sacrifice. For me, that makes this one of the best days of the year. Only topped by Easter Sunday.

Today was joyful. Heard a lot of great music by the male chorus of the black Baptist Church my wife and I go to and was glad to see the guys, as they all sing in another male chorus I am in. The kids in the church got up and recited short poems... most of the kids were pre-school and a delight to watch. They are not mic shy. I think all kids under five are hams at heart. The older kids got up and were more nervous and self conscious.

After church, I took my wife to a bountiful brunch. We may have gained five pounds a piece, but it was worth it.

Later, our daughter and two little girls from her church came up to our house and I hooked them up on Playstation 2, and we all had chili left over from last weekend.

Hard to let Easter weekend pass without saying what a beautiful time it is for some of us.

I'm at home, and shortly to be in my own bed again, after a weekend of (not) sleeping in the banana postion..... and it was sunny.

And I'm still smiley after a wonderful Easter Sunday service in Flemish, of which the only words I really understood were 'Christus is verrezen!'....

The whole town (Tongeren) was decorated for Easter, with the street and almost every shop decked out with garlands, wreaths, Easter trees (branches hung with decorated eggs), green and yellow ribbons, spring flowers, rabbits, chicks, feathers and eggs in every size and colour imaginable. Whenever we had coffee or a meal in a bar, it came with a small chocolate egg; our breakfast yesterday and today, in the hotel, included little chocolate and fondant eggs; on Saturday, there were two 'Easter Bunnies' giving out decorated hard boiled eggs to every child they met in the town.... a whole town celebrating a festival, rather than an excuse to eat too much, drink too much and fester in front of the TV.

Today is a good day because I see the goodness around me... for starters, on this thread, which is always a welcome relief from many other threads that resemble pigs fighting in a gunny sack.

A couple of days ago, someone backed one a them big SUV's into the side of my car while I was parker, waiting for my wife. And everything that happened after the collision made my thankful. For starters, the man and his wife in the SUV were very apologetic and made no attempt to suggest that it was my fault. The man, who was driving even admitted it to my insurance company when I called to report the accident. When the policeman came, he was extremely friendly and considerate and offered to do anything he could to help. My insurance company called the next day, and the woman handling the case was warm and friendly and a lot of fun to kid around with, and she took care of everything... called the body shop so that when I arrived there today, they had all the information in the computer. The owner was very talkative and we had a good time shooting the breeze while he was filling out the estimate. The car rental agency where I will get a rental car had all the information in their computer for me before I arrived, and gave me exactly what I wanted, when I wanted.

I tell ya: there is so much complaining about what a bad attitude many people have, but everyone I talked with was enromously helpful and friendly, and I ended up thinking that maybe having the accident wasn't all that bad, after all.

And then, I went and had my income tax done and found out we wwere getting nice refund.

The only thing missing was going to my dentist (who is a riot, and greaty fun to kid around with.)

Hey Jerry: Today is a good day because I did not have to drive anywhere and have my blood pressure raised by seeing the idiots with the SUVs on the road---especially the Escalades and the overgrown Fords.

            Also because that made me not have to curse them when I did not have to see their "Support our Troops" emblems on them. They are supporting them by getting these monsters that use more gas, threaten other's safety, and feeling real macho---and I don't even mention the morons in Hummers. They think they are General Patton going to a shopping center.

             And---as said earlier---like Andy Breckman---I did not throw up---mostly because I did not have to see the gargantuan goliaths of the greedy.

Hey, Bill: Today is a good day because we had family visiting and my wife and I took them all out dinner and had a wonderful time. I also made volume two of a compilation CD of rock music my sons and I listened to in the 80's and 90's.. enjoying listening to it now.

But, your post reminded me of why this was a REALLY GOOD day. After my wife and I left the family and headed back home, she wanted to pick something up at the same store where I was hit by the SUV four or five days ago. This time, I parked in a parking space with SUVS on both sides, so I was protected. Not that there is any mercy in this world, as a couple of years ago, my wife and I were sitting in a rental car, parked in a legitimate parking space when an elderly woman backed up across two lanes in the lot and managed to slam into our car.

Sometimes you can't win for losing. Today, I did, though.

My ultimate nightmare is someone backing up in an SUV WHILE they are talking on their cell phone. Maybe some other day..

Today is a good day..

I spent this evening at a meeting that was of great interest to my husband but of no particular interest to me. The thing that makes it a good day is that I was able to go outside for fresh air every so often and the night was spectacular. The flowers were in bloom (as they are not yet at home), I heard crickets and the air was thick from the nearby river....I could have stayed on that porch for an eternity....very enjoyable indeed!

Today is also a good day because my very, very sick Silky Terrier not only managed to get out of her nest, but she was waiting for us in the living room when we got home. She came when I called her AND wiggled her little nubby tail!!!! What a trooper my little Lily is!!!!! I was SO glad to see her and it was nice that she was glad to see me too!!! :)

Today is a GRAND day because our Silky Terrier, Lily, is doing much better!   She hasn't eaten in 4 days. She has been drinking water and chicken broth but just wouldn't eat. This morning she got out of her nest, walked in the kitchen, drank some water out of the big bowl (not the little bowl I keep by her nest because she has been too weak to walk to the big bowl) and marched over to one of the dog beds in the living room and plopped herself down next to her buddy Homer!!!!!!!!! Then later, I called her and she came (wobbly) right away, her little nubby tail just a wagging and she ATE!!!!!!!!!!! I have some cat food with turkey bits in it and she ate half the can!!!! That is a HUGE improvement!!!!!! Even better than that, (this is gross so if you have a weak stomach, stop here)....one of her nipples was swollen so that it was as big as my fist...looking much like innards. As of just now, it is almost back to normal...she is healing...SHE IS HEALING!!!!!!!! I was so sure that she was going to die, that there would be NO improvement...I am so happy to say that I was wrong that I can't stand it!!!!!!!!!

Lily is 13 years old and joined our family on our 1st wedding anniversary. :)

3. I had lunch with my Mom and my friend and the 2 week old twins stopped by....I got my baby fix!!! :)
4. I got to open birthday presents early! I got a new bag for my upcoming trip, my favorite moisturizer...a luxury!...a book about fiddler's in the southern states and a Great Blue Heron (one of my all time favorite birds!) lamp that I have been oogling for years!
5. I helped my mom purchase a walker/seat for her upcoming trip. She was feeling bad about needing one when we went in to check it out and by the time she left, I think she was feeling more empowered...that is a GOOD thing!!!!!!!
6. I visited a small art gallery today and chatted with the docent.

It was my first day back at work at the park after a long, cold (not to mention broke) winter. My boss and I spent the morning catching up on what's new, both professionally and personally, then we went out and surveyed the trails for damage. The afternoon was spent raking picnic sites. The weather was gorgeous, the birds were singing, and physical labor makes me very satisfied. Our osprey pair are courting-- they mate for life, but go through courtship every spring to re-inforce the pair bond (I think maybe human couples could learn something from that).

Today was a great day! Forget good. My brother-in-law who has been on life support, 75 miles away from home for the last five weeks is moving home... still on life support, but he'll at least be able to spend whatever time he has left at home with my sister andf their kids.   Meanwhile, my oldest son just took a job that will put him a two hour drive away from here for the next six months, which means we'll be able to see him a lot more often. My youngest son called tonight and he is getting increasingly involved in the Unitarian church and is feeling very good about it... finally feeling that he's a part of a community (which we all need.) And then today, I sang at the nursing home.. we got held up unavoidably and were 20 minutes late, and it was very moving to see a full room of people (mostli n wheel chairs) patiently waiting for my wife and I to get there. I sang a new song I've just written, The Carpenter's Son for the first time in front of a group of people and was moved by the response.

Life is good. Even when it doesn't appear to be.

Oh yeah, got a wonderful e-mail from an old acquaintance I'

Today continues to be a good day because I played hooky today and spent the entire day with my best girlfriend and the twins. We went "shopping" at the mall with the twins which really means we window shopped and enjoyed showing off the babies who attract audiences everywhere we go! I didn't get home until late and my wonderful husband is cooking dinner for me right this very minute!!!

It was nice to really interact with the babies today...feeding, holding, changing clothes, singing them, rocking them, kissing their sweet little heads, carrying them in the baby carrier, pushing the stroller...all of it...even asking folks to NOT touch the babies....I love it all!!!!!!!!!!

I use the meeting room between meetings for reviewing music, reading, and naps, so it takes some time to get it ready for company. Maybe tomorrow I can enjoy the evening instead of being whacked out from cleaning!

Today was a good day because my wife and I had a chance to visit three house-bound church members. One woman is totally blind, and very frail. She'll be 95 in May. The second woman is near 90 and crippled with arthritis, and her son who lives downstairs on the first floor is still having trouble getting used to the artificial leg he has when they had to remove one leg above the knee because of diabetes. The third woman has been be-bound for several years with M.S. and con longer use her arms. All three of them were very upbeat, and thankful that we still remember them and come to see them.

This morning, I sang with the Men's Chorus in our home church, and this afternoon, I sang with a second Men's Chorus I am a member of, and then switched to my "home-church" Men's chorus to sing as we were guests. What a great time we all had! My wife Ruth wanted to meet the many who sang as the lead singer of the Ink Spots for 20 years, and he seemed pleased that she wanted to take a picture of him.

The sermon in the afternoon was fittingly about Job, and thankfulness.

Today was one of the most joyful days I've had in months.

I got what feels like an extra day off from work this week, due to changing schedules and a bizarre pay wek that runs Sun. to Sat. I decided to take it today, because it's raining cat and dogs out. It's also the Curly-haired One's day off, as well. The only drawback is that due to the rain, Jason's little brother Ben's baseball game will be cancelled.

But every cloud has a silver lining, all the rain will lower the fire danger hereabouts and we no longer have to worry about a carelessly dropped cigarette burning down thee whole park. The osprey have been mating this week, the red maples (Acer rubrum) are all in bloom, the trout lily leaves are up, and the mayflowers should bud soon. I love spring!!!!!

I got home about 2:15 AM and had to be at work at 8:30 to give nature walks to a group of school kids. I'll admit to not having been looking forward to it, but it was possibly the best group of kids I've had in the 18 years I've been a ranger. They were a class of 3rd graders from inland quite a ways. They were polite, respectful, attentive, and bright. And very enthusiastic. What a great day!

Today is a good day because I had fun outside chasing and catching chickens! We had gone out for a bit and came home to find a chicken...2 chickens...OMG....why is half the flock of chickens running around the front yard? Ok...hole in the fence. Oh no...chicken feathers everywhere and the damned fox was about to get another one. We startled the fox, the chicken got away and we spent the next hour or so catching chickens...always fun to do in the daylight! LOL...my husband chased them one way and I chased them another....we laughed ALOT!

Our nearest neighbor's sheep have started giving birth. She has several fields but the one closest to our house is full of baby lambs...they are SO SWEET! I absolutely LOVE to watch the lambs run! Or should that be, try to run?!?!? :)

Yesterday was pretty stellar too. A client of mine, who I was involved with when he was 8 years old identified himself to me in church. I had no idea who he was but he knew my name. The minute he told me his first name, I knew immediately who he was. He is now 19 years old!!!! Man...I feel old...but what a wonderful feeling to know that he remembered me. I certainly remember him....his looks have changed (no more pudgy cheeks, new glasses) but the smile is the same....as is the sparkle in his eyes. Yep...that kid made my day!

A little over 2 weeks ago, one of our cats had kittens, 3 of them! Their eyes are now open but in the last two days, we noticed that 2 of the kittens have one eye glued shut and the poor third kitten's eyes were both glued shut. I am happy to say that I tried an old home remedy that was suggested to me of warming milk and soaking a tea bag in the milk, squeeze some of the milk out and apply the bag to the kittens eyes.

I had tried warm water but it didn't touch it. The tea bag soaked in warm milk worked GREAT! All 3 sets of little blue eyes are peeking about and I am most happy!

Yesterday was a great day because I spent it with my husband who is on vacation....we went out in the woods, stopped by our cabin, went walking amongst the ferns and found a baby deer who jumped up and ran off...I'm not sure who startled who more! Later we hung out at the bookstore for a few hours, watched a large storm roll in and back out and stopped for an ice cream cone on the way home. Neither of us had our watches on, we did what we wanted, when we wanted and really, REALLY enjoyed the day!

This morning he told me to get ready to go and soon we will be going on some kind of mystery trip. I don't know where we will land but I am excited and looking forward to the day. :) In my book, that makes it a great day already!

Because my wife and I just watched the movie, Three Coins In The Fountain. We recently went on a trip to Europe and two of the places my wife most wanted to see were the Trevi Fountain in Rome, and the city of Venice. When we got back, I bought a DVD of the movie over eBay and it arrived today. This morning when we got up (and before the mail had arrived) we went on a long walk on a new river walkway they just built in our home town of Derby (Connecticut, not England.) It was a beautiful morning and after the walk we went out for breakfast. When the mail arrived, my wife was very excited to see that we'd just got the DVD in the mail and after supper, we watched the movie. Neither of us remember it very well, not having seen it since it came out in the 50's. We didn't remember that there is a whole section that takes place in Venice, and my wife was so excited, she was jumping up and down! We thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and I know it won't be the last time that we watch it. The movie is very Hollywood-romantic.

That can't touch Derby-romantic...

Jerry and a very joyful wife

I just talked with Dad. He is, as he likes to say, "still vertical." Talked a bit about music and instruments. He COULD have been a concert violinist, having been invited by the Philadelphia Philharmonic. But opted for other adventures, among them fighting in "the last good war." Gonna plan a visit to him over the holidays while he is still here.

It is my day off AND my birfday! Mom is taking me to a rilly nice restaurant to honor it.

Had a great smoke, Smauel Gawith 1792 in a 3/4 bent rusticated Aldo Velani.

Picked up my Alvarez Yairi and thoroughly enjoyed its sound and some of the songs I have missed. "When you learn a song, you've got a friend for life." I think that is from Bill Danoff. Still haven't decided if I will keep it or sell it in favor of a Martin. But it is a thoroughly wonderful instrument. And after my tour of the Martin factory, I am sooo appreciative of the effort and skill that goes into making any guitar.

Watching The Daily Show (that I time-shifted cause it's on too late for me to stay up). The folks that put it together are pure genius!

Mudcat Cafe is purring along, and it is a GREAT place to go to be with GREAT people.

Truly a very good day!

I just got back from a great little trip. The flights were pretty uneventful, and I even survived the security unpleasantness.

Spent some good time with Dad. Shared some of the (premium!) scotch I brought him, and gleaned some fatherly wisdom from some of the tales he told me. There is still much more to do while he is still "vertical," but this was good dose.

Managed to get off for a few hours to see a friend who is surviving with an inoperable brain tumor. He is doing better than some people who are totally healthy (at least physically). He is amazing, and an inspiration. On doctor's orders he has had to stop smoking and drinking. Curiously enough, he had not too long ago bought a REALLY expensive pipe, and also had the good fortune to be given a nice bottle of single malt 10-year whisky. He gave them both to me! I smoked the pipe on the ride home from the airport, and sipped the whisky after I unpacked.

I am back online, checking my email and checking in with my friends on Mudcat, and things are looking pretty good at the moment. Perhaps I won't tune in to the news for a while...

For starters, today is a good day because I saw this thread. Skimming back many posts I had to smile because I mentioned in November that I had new software computer and was starting to burn a CD of the Gospel Messengers. That was premature. The software that I had just purchased ended up never working. After a month of endless exchanged e-mails and phone calls, I finally age up on it and the software is now landfill.

Here it is, four or five months later, and I've got some stale good news. I'm working on the Gospel Messengers CD. The difference is that I am almost done.. my new software works beautifully and I am within a few hours of burning the Master CD. I already have 10 songs mastered to my satisfaction, and have started laying out the booklet and back for the case.

On top of that, I've already made a CD of my own songs... most of which were intended to be included on my third album for Folk Legacy, which never materialized. And, I'm doing the layout for the booklet for my last album, Handful Of Songs, which should be ready within a couple of weeks.

Hallelujah!

Most of all, it's a beautiful, snowy day, and I am filled with energy and enthusiasm.

And thanksgiving.

On my way home today I stopped for a flock of turkeys who were crossing the dirt road to get from the woods into a corn field. There were 50 if there was 1....lots of birds. I pulled the car over, rolled down the window, turned the engine off, watched and listened. Some of the floew away, others ran and some eyed me and took their sweet time. I enjoyed listening to them.

A few more miles down the road and I came upon 3 deer having some lunch. I stopped again, pulling the car over, windows down and watching. They looked at me, wiggled their tails and continued to eat. One kept her head up and kept very still. I said hello to her and the other two popped their heads up. The moved around a bit and I told them how beautiful I thought they were. They ate a bit more and left, tails high, jumping over the brush.

When I got home, I received a phone call that made me most happy. I am going to be taking part in an Urban Seminar later this spring. I'll be leaving this beautiful countryside to teach at an inner city school for 2 weeks. I'll be teaching, taking evening courses, helping with community projects, coordinating a children's fair and then a presentation upon my return. I know it's a lot for two weeks but I am really excited about it!!!!!!!!!

I went to an awesome seminar this morning where I got to meet with the school's Life Skills teacher, her students and the guidance counselor...what a dynamic group of people...learned lots and lots! That was good, but the best part happened before the seminar. The seminar took place in an elementary school cafeteria. There were a group of us that arrived fairly early and some children were just finishing up their breakfast. I took my coat off, settled into my seat, got my notebook out when this curly topped little blonde girl came running over and wrapped her eyes around me. Mrs. Lilyfestre!!!!!! WE ALL MISS YOU!!!!!

This child was in the classroom where I recently taught for 6 weeks. Talk about melting a heart. :) But wait, there's more....during the seminar, the principal stuck her head in the door to let everyone know that there was an art show, complete with ongoing skits, taking place in the gymnasium and we should all take a look before we leave. Ok, sounded great. The seminar ended, I walked into the gym with another woman who student taught directly across the hall from me. Pretty soon we both notice all the little first grade heads turning and big toothless grins coming our way. Then they started waving....and pretty soon they came running over for hugs. It feels SO good to know that I made a connection with these children....words simply cannot do the feeling justice.

They made my day. :)

Today I posted pictures of my childhood best friend, John, on my high school class reunion site. He died unexpectedly in 1999. I had some prints made, 2 enlargements made and then framed them. There will be a special spot at the reunion for a memorial for our classmates who aren't here anymore. I got to thinking that maybe his parents would like to see the pictures and stories posted. I haven't seen them or talked with them in years. I also thought that maybe they would like some of the photos, or had photos they would like to add for the memorial. Anyway, I was really nervous about calling them. I didn't want to cause them any sad feelings or heartache. I called anyway. They weren't home so I left a message. John's mom called back and left a message.

I was SO glad to hear her voice and she said she was thrilled that I called. Hearing her voice slams me back in time and is flooding me with memories. I can't seem to stop the tears....bittersweet...incredibly bittersweet.

I attended an interesting seminar on differentiated instruction and compacted curriculum. I was able to visit my first graders, got lots of hugs, and attend a play that they were putting on. I got to spend some time with my favorite aunt who is visiting the area, looked at some new real estate, it's Friday and I received an unexpected birthday card from an old friend!!!! :)

I woke up to the news on the radio. Obviously, the electricity was working. And some reporters were working hard to bring me the news through the marvelous means of through-the-air radio waves.

I went to the bathroom to wash my face, and CLEAN hot and cold running water came out of the tap at the flick of a lever. Clear water. At the flick of a lever. And when I get the water bill, I am always amazed at how little I pay for this privilege.

I went into the kitchen, and it was filled with all kinds of foods that were unbelievably affordable when I bought them, and free from infestation of any kind.

I got dressed in clean clothes with all their buttons and zippers and no holes. And they were warm enough for the weather, which is still on the cool side.

I got in my car, which is paid for and runs fine and went to my job, which is relatively secure from the onslaught of forced job changes.

I contemplated some of the songs I will play for an upcoming set at the College (where I work).

My day started off better than the days of something like 80% of the world's people. And that is why it is a good day!

My 26 year old son came by today. When he was a toddler we used to call him Boo-Boo. he told me that my grandaughter Rosie (his niece, 18 months) is now calling him Boo-Boo.

A couple of months ago I gave him my easel and paints - he has started painting and I'm very happy to see him develop that part of himself. I guess, as gnu said, people often get happiness from their kids.

I feel happy when I wake up and look through my filmy magenta curtains to see the light patterened on the green leaves outside. Its always a good way to wake up.

Hey, Freda:

Yes, there's something special about the morning light. I always liked the song Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise. Many years ago, long before it was a reality, I wrote a song about the morning light:

"Softly the morning moves over the wall
Warming the bed where we lay
Reach out and touch your soft hair as it falls
Welcome another new day
   Soft golden colors, they turn and they spin
   Starting the morning anew
   Feelings they swell and awaken within
   Drawning me nearer to you"

Well yesterday really but we are still on a high!! My partner was giving a lecture on folk plays in Scotland and revived a folk play which hadn't been performed in Scotland for a hundred years. The "weans" (who are in their 20's) really pulled it off, especially the sword fight which was spectacular and have been offered two gigs on the strength of it. Later that evening we had our first meeting of our "Backstage" club. We had a great turnout, smashing singing and storytelling and piping and another performance of the play, which we filmed. Tonight we a giving a party for our mummers, to say thanks. Oh and I think I've finally sorted out my structure for my dissertation, deadline 5th May. So all in all a jolly good couple of days!!!

Spaw, my step-dad is 64 now. My mom passed away in 1995 at the age of 55 from smoking and she was older than he was.

I can actually tell you when I realized that the man who married my mother was not just a guy in the house but my "dad." I was very ill with a bout of shingles in my eye (I've had them since I was 12 and that was about when this realization took place). My dad was upset to see me in such pain and he couldn't understand why the doctors couldn't do anything for me, so he took off from work and took my to the doctors himself. He watched as I tried to deal with the pain of being examined (a lot of bright light, which hurts especially bad), and then he practically begged them to do something for me... actually he did beg them. They told him what they had told my mother, there was nothing they could do, the medicines available had no effect at the time. So, he helped me back into his car and I sat hiding from the sun and crying from being tired and hearing yet again that there was nothing to help me. He drove for a while and then he said and asked me to hang in there, and then being new to this "dad" thing he said, "Hey, I know, let's go to McDonald's for an early lunch!" (he knew I loved McDonald's Big Macs at the time). I realized then that I needed to pull myself together and his kindness and worry of me gave me the strength to do that. So, I swallowed the pain, wiped my face, and went and had lunch with my dad. From that day on, he was part of my family.

Thanks for reading this and asking, Spaw!

Dear Spaw- you've made my day! Thanks for reading what turned out to be a lonnnnngggg tale.

My dad received cookies and three cards from me yesterday (they were all sent together so one was his Father's Day card so he'll have it on time. LOL). He's fighting reoccuring bladder cancer and will be starting a second treatment of chemo (the first was last year but it came back). Due to his years of smoking, he was high risk of something and we both consider him lucky as bladder cancer is one of the easiest to treat and find. He may eventually lose his bladder although in doing so, he may live a lot longer. One thing at a time...

From your posts, Spaw, I gather you're a dad too. Your kids are very lucky- they may not know how much but I do :)

It is likely he will never be in this procession again as he really suffered today. The weather was warm and sunny and the people very freindly.

Also I was able to buy him a pie and a pint or two.

Yesterday a friend and I went to a kayak clinic in Ithaca, NY. It was her first time out and my first time on this kind of water. We took the Cayuga Canal (think swampy) into Cass Park which is actually larger water at lake level. There were 7 of us, including the guide. It was cloudy and about 72 degrees. The water was high and murky from all the recent rain but it was fun anyway! Shortly after we started, my friend noticed a blue heron sitting high in the canopy...I pulled out my trusty waterproof Kodak camera and clicked away..LOL...I love those litte cameras! Anyway...we heard it's call too, I'd never heard it before and thought it would be deeper but it actually was pretty chirpy. We paddled past a huge lilypad community, around some downed trees, under a few bridges (one was REALLY low....had to duck to get under it), by a few restaurants with dock space for hungry boaters, by a boat slip and past the Cornell Rowing Team Building. Groups of mallard ducks were around every bend. Our guide chatted away with anyone who was nearby, sharing information about the birds, plants and the kayaks. We paddled at a leisurely pace, sometimes racing with the boy (WOOO HOOOOOOOO!) in the group and had a grand time! In all, we paddled just a few short miles and would have been happy to do more. When we got back to shore, we had the added bonus our husbands waiting for us with great big smiles and a hand at pulling the boat up onto shore before we got out (I think getting out is the trickiest part and the water at that point was really murky and mucky)...that was a nice surprise and very much appreciated!
We left with tired, exhilerated bodies (if that makes any sense) and big giant smiles. I can't wait to do it again!!!!!

Today is a good day because a homeless parolee fellow I have kind of adopted saw my porch light was on at 2 Am and stopped by for a chat, a prayer and meal. Thank the Good Lord he's now off Methamphetamines, looking wonderful and possibly getting a bus ticket to go back home to the midwest.

I met him and a friend of his one night while brushing my dog in my yard at 3 am. (I'm up late a lot from chronic pain. When I can't sleep, I take the dog outside to look at the stars. ) His friend is back in jail and since he violated his parole (stole some beer), he'll most likely bo back to prison for 3 to 6 years or maybe even Life cuz of the 3 strikes law. That made me very sad. But.. I was happy that the other fellow, J. is doing so much better.

I made him some hot buttered biscuits and coffee and loaded him up with the things folks in his position often need - clove oil, plasters (band-aids), clean socks and t-shirt, fresh razor, soap, shampoo, batteries and so on. We had a lovely visit.

J. is a big reader and both he and my husband like Dean Koontz novels. Every time he comes by, we give him a new one. Tonite he was optimistic enough to take 2 books which is good. it means he probably has things a little bit better and has a place to stay some nights.

J is always trying to give me things of value he finds (not steals mind you, finds, usually in the trash). last time he gave me a set of 4 cordial glasses he dug out of the trash and cleaned up. They turned out to be antiques but not of any value. Still, they're lovely. Someone probably tossed them because they broke a couple. I have told him time and time again that the thing of most value he gives me is his friendship, his prayers and his recovery from substance abuse.

If any of you are the praying type, please pray for J. He finsihed his parole a week ago and is free to leave the State. He's clean and sober now for a month and what he needs most is to find a way back home to his family. In the meantime, i'll keep making him coffee and biscuits!

It is indeed a good day.

Oh, and my Maximillan sunflowers have started to bloom. I have a huge stand of them growing by the side of my house. they are native to the american plains and if supprted properly will grow to 25 feet. Ours are about 22 feet high this year and the tops are starting to bloom. They are a branching variety so soon I will have a riote of sunflowers! The blooms are about the size of a silver dollar. I mostly grow them for the birds who feed on the seed. The flowers are high enough off the ground to provide them safe haven from prowling pussycats. They get to eat and hang out in the branches. I get a lovely privacy screen in return.

it's also a good day because Inky the feral cat who lives under my house came through his surgery well. He may have cancer. He has had a recurring nasty cyst under his ear by his eye. The biopsy comes back in a day or so. If it is cancer, we will just let him go about his life until it re-occurs and then make a decision about whether or not to put him to sleep. He refuses to live indoors and we have an epileptic dog whose medications cost us $150 a month. that and we have an 11 year old siamese cat with breast cancer. One cannot save all the feral kitties I'm afraid. Lord knows I've tried. let's alll hope that Inky is just prone to silly cysts and not cancer. he's a sweet boy and I like him.

OK, today's a good day because yesterday my Zooba book came( I pay $9.95 a month, build a big reading list, forget about it and magically one book apears towards the last day of every month. Zooba.com. ).

... and guess what it is!

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill : A love Story...with wings

It's a about a tribe of wild parrots in San francisco. We have two tribes of wild green parrots in Southern CA - one in Beachwood Canyon where I used to live and one in pasadena.

It is also a good day because Inky, the cat who lives under my cottage had a negative biopsy for cancer. The little criminal is gonna live to a ripe old age it seems. He's snoozing on the bed right now which is only because he has stiches in his head. He has learned I will take off the plastic cone on his head if he stays indoors. As soons as he wakes up and wants to go out - it's time to put the radar dish on him again. Consequently, he's been coming inside a lot. That makes a good day too because there's notheing better than having a feral cat decide it's good to come in for a cuddle!

I came of the medication that had worse side-effects than the disease. I've only been taking it since 19th July, since a thyroid biopsy showed the existing nodes were cold. Cold nodes are usually ok, but silly me, I didn't look up anything about thyroid till last night, after my specialist said to stop taking them & come back & see her in 12 months.

Thyroxine comes with a huge list of other medications that might react with it & a humungeous list of side-effects, many of which were the symptoms I had. (As my colleague said, you're trying to get rid of them!)

I've had nodes on my thyroid since 1999 & they've mainly been well behaved - just a sensitivity to heat, so I carry a fan & have a fan on permanently in the office as I find air conditioning too warm & still.

This year I had a few nasty panic attacks tho I didn't know what they were at the time, and my thyroid was sore, so it was scans & biopsy, interspersed with several big panic attacks (one sent me into hospital)

Today I felt great, except for a blocked nose (sniff, sniff)

Tomorrow I will also feel wonderful! I've been learning to breathe properly following Buteyko principles & will get better & better

sandra

Treatment is very variable. Many patients are simply placed under observation. Thyroxine (T_4 ) can be given to suppress Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) levels and thereby cause the nodules to shrink. This is called Suppression Therapy. Radioactive Iodine (RAI) is used to destroy hot nodules in some cases and they can also be removed surgically.

Sandra - I'm glad you are able to stop taking a medication that was giving you such trouble. Here's hoping the panic attacks lessen and disappear. I've had them myself off and on and it feels like you're having a massive heart-attack, doesn't it? I don't wish surgery on anyone but I've had friends who have nodes removed surgically and they did very well. Today at least, is good because you don't have to think about this right now. Please try not to. You can always promise yourself to think about tomorrow or at your next octor exam.

MY cure for my panic attacks is actually to listen to 2 different tracks from a Roger Eno album over and over again in a dark room with noise cancellation headphones. I was trained to do biofeedback on myself and alter the ole brainwaves thru will and it works. I can zone myself into a waking coma with Roger's help. If anyone knows him, thank him for me and tell him my doctor now recommends his music to all his panicked and anxious patients.

thanks for sharing what works for you. I can also get into a meditative-like state by listening to different pieces of music.

I'm determined that I won't allow myself to fall into the habit of panic attacks, so have been been doing my best to practice breathing quietly & consistently as I've been taught at a Buteyko workshop a few weeks ago.

Today I got the tight feeling in my chest that comes from doing too much (I'd walked around town at lunchtime for over 90 minutes) & knew my heart would start racing unless I sat quietly breathing evenly. It took a while, but I was eventually able to continue my day (eat lunch!) then work at my desk for the rest of the afternoon. I ignored the stuff that had to be done on my feet, & I still have a bit of tightness & tiredness 6 hours later, but heart is working slowly & surely, because I've been concentrating on my breathing all that time.

Because I never learnt to breathe properly my physio had been at me for months to do a course in Buteyko technique, and as improper breathing causes lots of my problems (tiredness, lack of concentration, racing heart, panic attack symptoms) I'm getting better the more I follow instructions.

sandra who had another good day!

Today is a good day becuase a friend of mine battling alcholism has managed to cut his daily intake by half which is quite something. It may not seem like much, but he's drinking less than he has in years and is still on the way down. We hope in a month he will be able to quit entirely.

it is also a good day because Inky the cat who lives under my house, didn't have to have stitches. He got into a major territorial dispute with a young tough Tomcat who insists on coming into our yard. Said Tomcat slashed his face twice, opening up his healed surgical incision from 2 weeks ago. The Vet was able to clean him up and close the wounds with surgical superglue! Amazing. Even better, he doesn't have to wear that cone on his head. It's a good day for Inky! Poor ole Inky. he's such a good boy. I only wish he'd let me make him a housecat. His frequent beefs with this other cat are a good advertisement for why cats are better off living the good life indoors.

It is also a good day because my dinner-plate Dahlias have come back into bloom. They are a nice buttery yellow. The blooms last a long time and are quite profuse. they line the walk up to our cottage. So pretty!

Today was a very bittersweet day. It was the last day of my first placement in student teaching. My experience has been absolutely incredible and leaving was really tough. Today is a good day, though. Today I received multitudes of letters (90+) full of fond memories of the last 8 weeks. One 11 year-old young lady wrote me the following:

Mrs. Lilyfestre

The woman who I know made learning a lot less difficult for some people.
The lady who taught me so much, opptamism (her spelling!), happiness and joy.
The Person who always seemed to have something good to say.
The Student Teacher who was THE BEST!!

There were many others that made me realize exactly how big of an impact I had on the children and in more ways than I had anticipated.      The love they showed me today was amazing and that makes today a FANTASTIC (said in 6th grade fashion....you had to be there!) day!!!!

For yonks I've had most of the Mudcat CDs resting precariously on 3 metal bookends sitting on top of the back of said desk. The rest sat in front of the printer almost getting in the way.

Now I have a wonderful homemade (it's definitley not handcrafted!) set of shelves. I've jut got to make sure any visiting handyperson/carpenter doesn't take a close look.

Mainly because it's nearly over. Actually it was a bloody horrible rotten day, full of stress, and everything that could possibly go wrong, did. I don't even have a chance to enjoy a weekend in the garden, which I had originally planned to do, because my father-in-law died on Wednesday, so I'm being picked up by my son at 6.30 tomorrow morning and I'm spending the weekend in Kempsey at a family gathering with my ex-husband's family.

My daughter may or may not make it depending on whether she can get her act together enough. More stress either way. That's a whole 'nother story. To be fair, these are nice people - it's just that after this week I REALLY could have done with a quiet weekend with my beans and tomatoes.

Then when I come back on Monday there will be the matter of my car to deal with. All of a sudden the most reliable car in the world is starting to play up, and they haven't got to the bottom of the problem yet because it's an intermittent problem. It behaved perfectly when the NRMA came to have a look. AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

After a short terror concerning our flight reservations not having gone through, we finally found out that they HAD actually gone through. Whew! It would have cost us either double the price for the tickets or we would have had to get up at 2 in the morning to make it to a substitute flight at 6. But that has been resolved.

And everything is taken care of at work, and I am (mostly) packed and the remaining items on my list will be quickly handled. And then...off to the wedding in Sao Paulo, where I go from Autumn-into-Winter to Spring-into-Summer, and the warm embrace of lovely wife's family and friends! And fresh, sweet mangoes and papaya. And figgos, too. Love them figgos. (Them's dried figs before they get dried. A whole different experience eating them fresh and juicy.)

you got me counting days Wilfried, I have 13 weeks left before I retire.

13 weeks is 65 days, but as I will no longer be working Wednesdays, this means I only have 52 days left.

I'll be working 4-day weeks cos my wonderful Assistant Director says I can use some of my remaining holidays to attend a Craft group that meets on Wednesdays!!

Only 52 days to go!!

Oops, I forgot the Christmas shutdown & a long weekend for a Festival so it's even less.

It's a gorgeous day, the wind has dropped and the sun is shining. The Christmas bush is reddening and looks wonderful against the blue sky. I spotted my first red cherry tomato, there's a cucumber almost full size, the climbing beans are rocketing up the frame and small beans are starting, I'm getting little purple, yellow and red capsicums, and little basil plants are finally popping up from seed that I scattered. Lots more, but generally, it's a pleasure to be in the garden.

Everything's coming together for John's CD launch tomorrow. This thing looks like being bigger than Ben Hur. Now we've got complimentary champagne for early arrivals and gawd knows what else. Should be fun!

I'll try and remember your parsley Sandra, but with everything else going on, I wonder if I will? No good putting it in the car now - it would cook.

This is a VERY bad and good day wrapped up in one because:

My oldest step-brother and his girlfriend have been smelling something odd in their apartment for the last few days. Last night she asked him about carbon monoxide and didn't they have a carbon monoxide detector up in the attic? He believed they did and the two went looking for the detector. They didn't find it. He offered to go to Wally World and get one. She said it could wait until morning. During the night, she died of carbon monoxide poisoning. My step-brother was taken to the ER and it was found that they both contained equal amounts of poison in their systems. He is ok. She is gone.

I'm so happy that he is ok that I can't stand myself and in the same breath, I am horrified that she isn't.

I wish they would have put up their detector when they got it. If you have one, put it up. If you don't have one, get one.

Not only did I productively kick ass at work, I didn't get yelled at, neither. (I live with "chronic self-doubt, so not getting yelled at is a good day.) Also, I left for work early enough to enjoy my pipe on the drive in and even let people cut me off without my blinking an eye or raising my hear rate. AND, I found out that I will finally get a new supply of Samuel Gawith full Virginia flake after it had been unobtanium for the last, like five months! And if that wasn't enough, it finally looks like the hands of the "nuclear disaster clock" are actually moving backwards, now that we have a literate president.

It's a beautiful rain-washed, sun-blessed morning. The bees are just waking up in their new hive and starting to venture out to the orchard trees. I was up while the dew was still heavy, scything the grass and some over-enthusiastic brambles in the orchard. The smooth wood and swinging blade of the scythe made me feel honest and strong and humble and good. (In times of ocean-spilled oil, these well-designed human-powered tools are a great comfort.)

There are new chicks in the brooder box in the barn, feathering out nicely and hopping and chirruping about. Outside the open door, I hear two sleepy sunbathing hens, grumbling peacefully to themselves. The cows are in their new paddock, knee-high in grass and clover. Piglets are out at the edge of the woods in their "summer place," happily gobbling up the organic veggie scraps and day-old doughnuts we get from a local restaurant.

Outside the realm of livestock, the swallowtail butterflies are coming out. Yesterday I saw at least seven of them, swooping and fluttering about. Songbirds are calling to each other and crickets are chirping their own wee songs. Above it all, the trees have mostly leafed out, providing dappled shade to match the warming sun.

Time to go play in the dirt!

because... by mulitasking thoughtfully:

  • We were able to attempt (and do well,) and to enjoy a *quick hop* (3 hours each way) AWAY and back, sandwiched into a way-busy work schedule on a 30-hour pass. Bodes well for future Hardi-respites. My new scooter works well around H'burg's riverfront from the *pied a terre* we occasionally can use (which we restocked). New (free) city-parking options were also discovered.

  • One fun stop along the way netted me two hanging baskets (impatiens) to set, instead, into the two plant stands I just nabbed for the back porch.

  • A number of next-time options were duly noted.

  • I even made it to the Y pool before my legs exploded, and still had one guest pass left. They at Hardi into the pool surround to hang out with me and snap away-- can't wait to see pix from all of the above.

    - Feet don't hurt!
    - Came home to find we got into Harvest Moon dance weekend this fall.
    - Last but definitely not least: start a new job today - don't have to move, or deal with a huge job search, etc., etc. and finally begin spending half time with my husband (the other half is 500 hundred miles away with my son).

    *big contented sigh* Waking up to baby smiles is one of THE BEST things EVER!!!!!!!

    I have so far been able to see England beat Pakistan in the cricket test match, Fomula 1 Grand Pricks, Arsenal against Celtic, World Speedway Final, Athletics European Championships, and will finish up watching the final of the Football in Portugal where Benfica play Aston Villa.

    On top of that I have made my own breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (with a nice bottle of wine all to myself)

    Vacumed the house, done the shopping, Emptied the dishwasher and loaded and done a new wash.

    I even managed to get a 30 minute kip.

    Oh almost forgot, I did manage a shower etc.

    It has been wonderful :-)

    Having said all that, I do miss em. :-)

    I had a six month check-up with the kidney specialist, today, who is very happy with my coming back from the "brink" so to speak (protein blood level went from 5.8 to 1.8 which is vast improvement!) I've lost ten pounds since he saw me last and still losing, plus exercising on a consistent basis which he says will help bring down the protein levels in my bloodwork even more which is GOOD for my kidneys! So, I am to do more of the same and I am giving thanks!! Plus the itching I've been having is probably due to the calcium supplement, NOT the kidneys, so I will stop taking that and hope to feel more relief!

    For a day which started out with someone killing a cat with their car in front of our house, this one, for me, is turning out pretty good. (Said some blessings for the poor kitty.)

    I have my favorite nephew for five days and one of the first things he wanted to do was go to a bookstore. The book he wanted isn't out in paperback yet (although I would have bought him the hardcover), but he found two others he thinks he might like. I am very proud of him, he loves to read even though he has severe dyslexia and it takes him a long time to read a book.
