Recent gratitudes...

     So, the Black Hills trip is off. Reason being, too much sleep loss of late, and no chances to take a sleeping pill or sleep in for a couple weeks have drained me too much for a 10.5 hour drive, and I got too much weird 'vertigo-trying-to-come-back' messed-up-ness in my head at times to make it safe. (Pardon the highly technical phrasing! ;)

     But it only makes me grateful that I made it this far through the summer before it got this bad, and that it didn't cause me much trouble during the Chicago trip or the State Fair. Also very grateful we were able to cancel our Black Hills hotel reservations only 48 hours in advance and not get penalized for it. Thank you, God!

     Have to talk about the really wonderful stuff going on. My mom 'booked it' through book 5 on her Kindle over our Chicago trip, and finished it just as we were pulling into Wisconsin Dells on the way back. It's been a delight getting her questions and reactions to the ending.

     And yesterday I was able to get her added to my renewer_rising community! I have been looking forward to getting people joined up over there for years, so I am excited about that! So wonderful to have someone else 'in' on the whole story, at last!

I should probably have read this before commenting on your last post. I'm sorry to hear that you are not doing so well and hope that you get a good rest soon! How has the weather been out your way lately?

I had a great night of sleep last night...then woke up to discover I had pink eye! ;P

It was extremely hot September 1st (up to 33C), humid and wet today, but hopefully things will be nice again starting tomorrow. I hope your weather has been decent and spring is stirring. =)

Ugh! I hope the pink eye goes away soon, along with the hot weather.

Things here have been glorious--Spring has made a strong start this year and there is so much in flower already. I'm getting ready to plant out the vegetable garden.
