This post may wander a bit. That’s a good thing. Today, I am wandering for the first time in many days.
I have no specific goals for today. Nothing that has to be done urgently. Nothing urgent at all really. (Happy sigh).
My sister saw her doctor on Thursday for the follow-up to her last hospitalization. His first words, “You really dodged a bullet.” There are a few minor(ish) things to clear up, but basically he told her to, “Go live your life.” She’s to increase her activity as she is able and not to worry about the blood clots. They should resolve in the next 3 to 6 months. It’s been a scary, hard month. We don’t know if she’ll get back to where she was health-wise, but time will tell. Life is good.
Barret the dog has had a relapse of his meningitis and is back on medication. We caught it very early so his prognosis is good(ish). I suppose that the recommendation for him is the same as for my sister…go live your life and take each day as a gift. He’s getting lots of treats. He’s still weird and dorky. That is good.
Today is my youngest daughters 13th birthday. My last teenager. Her school lessons are still challenging, but I think we are starting to get the hang of it all. I’m hopeless at the math, but I have an answer book! I start with the answer and work back to figure it all out. I’m not crying as much over the homework. She’s not crying at all. Good stuff.
I’ve started a new art card…
And I’m going back to work on this…
…the door makes more sense now. https://faithacrestudio.com/2016/08/27/doors/
And someday I probably need to work on this, my studio worktable…
Honestly, a lot (okay, all) of my house looks like this. Except for the parts that are really messy.
Today, I don’t really care. Everybody and everything that is supposed to be breathing, is. Family and friends are gathering for a birthday celebration.
The food is waiting to be prepared.
We’ll shove the mess to one side and eat off of paper plates. Nobody will complain. There won’t be many disagreements (it is close friends and siblings after all). Will have fun and celebrate.
It’s all good.
