Good friends........

So here we are on the second day of the 10th month of the year. Autumn has always been a great season of the year - a welcome respite from the oppressive heat our area experiences during the summer months. Our neighbors asked us if we wanted to go with them to visit Ennis last night. We had already decided we were going today after my acupuncture appointment so Dwight said we would wait. I am so glad we did. Evidently Ennis has been non-responsive for awhile now but today she was wide awake, smiling and talking. You have to get down close and listen really good but she answered me and I understood what she said for the most part. Especially when she told me she loved me. She even ate some ice cream and applesauce they said. I know it can change again on a dime but I'll just be happy and appreciate it for what it was to me - a wonderful gift. To see her beautiful eyes light up as she smiled and tried to answer made me very happy.
This is another thing that made me smile today. I got a card from my sweet friend Katrina from when they were all at the beach last week. It was so sweet of her to think of me.
As you can see from the picture, her little baby bump is really starting to show. She had pictures of her latest ultrasound on her blog this week. I can't wait to meet her little girl when she is born. I don't think they have a name planned yet but I'm sure this little one will be just a special as her other two babies are.  My friend Marlan has truly been blessed with a wonderful family.  I'm still scanning pictures and finally finished with the first box.  Dwight was just telling me he is starting to get excited thinking about our upcoming week in November down
at Outer Banks. He talked to GG on the phone for a little bit tonight and said she sounds really good. He told her we were coming down and she was happy to hear it.  I'm looking forward to my appointment next Tuesday with my Radiation Oncologist. I'm going to start trying to come off the oxycodone.  Kelly thinks it is time and I have to agree. Hopefully I can do it in a way that doesn't cause me too much distress. I love the picture on the left I scanned of Jen and Kelly when they were down at the cottage one weekend some years ago. They pulled the sofas closer together, put all their junk food and "drinks" between them and watched a lot of TV together. A perfect girls weekend.
Another picture that makes me smile is this one of Max. He belonged to Douglas and Jessie and was absolutely the sweetest cat in the world. Everyone loved him as soon as they met him and he loved them right back. It was so hard when he died and I was actually very concerned for Douglas for a few weeks. I love all animals and especially cats but every once in a while, one comes along that steals your heart.
And this would be one of them - our dear sweet K.C. who was such a love from the day we got her. Dwight and I both cried like babies when she was killed. She is buried out back with so many others we've had through the years. Another Tuesday has come and almost gone....good night.

  1. I'm glad you got the post card!! I'm also glad that you'll be making a trip to the beach next month. You would have loved being there last week, the weather was perfect! The lighthouse in that picture is what we could see every day! I'm so glad to hear that you saw Mae and that she was having a good day. My heart wrenches when I think of what she and the family have been through for so long now. I think it's adorable that Kurt and Leah had professional pictures taken of their cat! Shakespeare is our special pet, can't believe he's 9 now! The kids and I want to come see you tomorrow. Will the morning be ok?
