Sorry I haven't been around for a few days, but there are some things happening which are entirely out of my control. 1) My FIL is in the hospital with what was first thought to be a stroke, but now they say "no". He is doing better today ( been there since early Friday AM), but it is a bit freaky to not know what is causing the confusion, stumbling etc. 2) My brother in Tucson has been laid off and has put his house on the market and is selling almost everything he owns in anticipation of turning tail and running back to Vermont. He hates Realtors ( I don't envy his for sure) and is bombarding me with pleas for advice which he scoffs at. 3) Weather has gone from lovely to 45 degrees and rainy. I know we need the rain, but couldn't it be a warm rain?
On another note I am not sure how many of you are acquainted with young Aussie Jeni Ballantyne of TheComfySpot She is a courageous young woman who is fighting Stage Four colon cancer and blogging about it. Some friends have put together an e-bay auction of donated goods to help defray some of her costs and to establish a trust fund for her six year old son Jack. If you get a chance please visit the auction at http//stores.ebay.com/bloggers-for-Jeni. Her plight is truly heart wrenching.
Good news...I won a Cottage decorating book from Julia over at Hooked on Houses. She has a very focused blog which is all about houses from tours of stars homes to MLS tours to design info. Stop by and say hello!
Bob is in SoCal for a two day class so I am going to indulge in a frozen ( I know, not great!) CPK garlic chicken pizza and a chick flick. Sounds like a theme night...chick pizza and chick movie!!
I have disabled the word verification; it has become positively evil with different widths and fonts. I 'm willing to give it a try so no goofy/rude spam please!!
