June 2016 Update: I am NO LONGER available to PACT with anyone. My sweet lady's cancer pain has worsened and I'm always close to jumping off DC with little notice to help her with all of her needs. Thanks for understanding...
I'll give that a try.
Thanks for the morning 'E' Lynn R and Judith P -- always appreciated.
We have a lot of dolphins pass by our beach, usually in family pods. They're wonderful to watch & the tourists go crazy when they see them. I posted a video on FB the other day showing about 20 manatees passing by in very shallow water. They're gentle giants, calm creatures that eat seagrass.
Have a nice Friday.
No specific change, but we are just careful with our spending.
It's another warm morning in SW Florida. We did get a small rain shower last evening which was nice. We need more. This is the start of our rainy season and our plants & critters need the moisture.
On our way home from the doctor yesterday we came across a very confused turtle in the middle of our neighborhood roundabout. Donna saw him, I jumped out and walked him into our protect preserve area & placed him where he'll be safe. I don't know if that's where he was headed but it's a much better place than the concrete. That happens on occasion.
Thanks for the morning 'E's Judith P, Carol S and Edupen F -- always appreciated!
We had a few minutes of silence yesterday for a dear friend we lost to cancer yesterday morning. She was 40 years old. I pray they find a cure for this awful disease someday soon.
Have a peaceful day........
Did the challenge, felt the felt some good stretching.
More doctors appointments this afternoon. Donna needs a bit more of my care lately and my old body is starting to feel it. It's amazing how we adjust to these situations and suddenly they are the new normal.
I might be signing off for a short while. Sorry -- but no pact for me Debbie. I've posted that I'm no longer available for pacts because my DC can stop at any time due to caregiver needs (I've recently noted this on my profile).
Have a peaceful day....
Although we don't dine out much anymore I've been looking at menus online when we do.
Expecting about an hour's time spent on a long-awaited visit with Donna's primary MD yesterday -- we have not seen her in 2 years, oncologists only. We were there for 4 hours, then off to get labs. We came home exhausted. I'm sure Donna will sleep the day. Her MD did line her up with a counselor for depression help & coping skills. It's all good. A small day just turned into a big day but we picked up a new team member that might possibly be a key factor for her health. The possibility is real that I may have to sign off for awhile this week.
Thanks going out to my morning 'E' friends Judith P, Kris S, Joyce W, Shirley U, Diana T and Janice L -- always appreciated.
We carry the Johnson & Johnson All Purpose First Aid Kit in our cars. We have a kit at home along with other medical supplies. Living in Florida we are keen to have hurricane preparation kits which include health related things. We're good!
I had a good Father's Day. Donna prepared a nice breakfast, I heard from both of my children and we vegged-out on a NetFlix series (Frankie & Grace).
We're off to a day full of doctor's today.
Happy first day of summer!
It's Father's Day and these two wonderful people qualify me as a Dad. My son Josh, A Disney Security Officer, and my daughter Shannon, a Starbucks store manager.
Today's challenge looks like it could disturb my breakfast -- I'll try it later today.
Thanks for the morning 'E' Lynn R, Judith P and Carol S -- always appreciated.
Have a peaceful Sunday......
I rarely stay in a bad mood for long. Life is too short. If someone has put me in a bad mood I tend to distance myself from them for awhile.
Thanks for the morning 'E' Carol S, Judith P and Crystal P -- always appreciated.
I would like to state that I am NOT available for PACTS from now on. Donna has medical needs that must be met and they sometimes change daily. I feel like I'm always on the verge of having to sign off for a time. Her cancer care has increased somewhat & I'm the guy that provides that horsepower. Thank you all for understanding...
I always find a way to use up leftover veggies -- usually they go in the stew pot for the next meal. Our friend in the photo has a unique way of eating. I'll bet there's no leftover problem in his house!
Thanks for the morning 'E' Judith P and Shirley U -- always appreciated.
