SAD NEWS AND A PHOTO FRIDAY

Yesterday I had lunch with my friend, Carol P.  I know so many Carols that I have trouble keeping track of them.  We haven't done this in quite a while.  Carol and I worked together at Northeast Regional Library and are very good friends.  We went to The Dining Car for lunch.


I haven't been there in a long time.  The prices have gone up tremendously.  After we ate we went to Carol's house and visited for about an hour before I went home.

My other friend, Carol N. was in the hospital yesterday recovering from surgery.  She fell on Monday and broke her ankle in three places.  She was transferred to a rehab facility last night.  We are going to try to go see her today.

Snowy is a little bit better, but still not well.  Still not eating or using her litter box.  I got her to eat about 6 or 8 treats and that's the first she's had in a week.  I'm worried about her.

And to top it off, Joe's ex-wife (my step-son's mother) passed away in her sleep last night.  I read it on facebook and couldn't believe it.  Joe called D.J. right away.  We will find out the funeral arrangements tonight and then Joe and I are heading to Tennessee for the funeral.  We were going to go down this spring so I could meet Abbey and now I will never have the chance this side of heaven.  I'm so glad I talked with her on the phone and emailed her and got to know this sweet lady.  I will miss her.  I've been crying all morning and Joe is taking it really hard too.

Life is never easy and things happen so unexpectedly.  I will never forget to say "I love you" to those I love.  We never know when our last moment will be.

I wanted to post another Friday Photo.  When I took Joe to the doctor's the other day I took a shot of the pretty waiting room.


Their floral arrangement was very pretty and unusual.

And I've never seen a plant like this.  At first I thought it was a calla lily, but then realized it was just the same leaves as the green ones, but they were white.  I wonder what it is.


I have to go and get something to eat.  Then I need to start to clean up the house.  We have to get someone in to keep an eye on Snowy while we are gone and the place is a mess.  I'll be checking in later and let you know what is going on.

  1. So sorry. Poor kitty. I know there is formal name for the plant but it is a peace lily.

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss, and give Joe and D.J. my sympathy. You know, from your description, and think you and Abbey were already friends, and I know she was blessed by your regard and love for her child---we always have an affinity for folks who love the folks WE love.

    I pray you both Traveling Grace for the journey, and sweet memories for the future.

    1. It has been a nightmare trying g to get a flight. We don't have over $2000 for tickets. Working on getting a cheaper flight. It's hard when it's the last minute.
