Heart What's on your plate....

Two of our girls and their two daughters are coming for Fathers Day today and staying several days so we're looking forward to that. I'm been cooking decadent desserts and Mr.Alffe is going to fire up the grill. Barbo is coming for lunch and I'll probably put her to work...*grin

I can't help but grin thinking of our moi on this Fathers Day....wish I could be a fly on the wall at their house!

I'm on my 2nd cup of coffee - my daily ritual - then its more design work here on the computer.... looking out at my sunny yard hoping that the grass will be dry enough to mow today.

I'm learning how to dry herbs - I have a ton of oregano growing!

I'm off to my brothers for Fathers day dinner and expecting to see my grandaughter tomorrow when they arrive in town!



I hope everyone has a day without any sadness

Hey Alffe, Addy and All -

My plate is more than full today.

Everyone in my household is ill with a severe flu. We are each at various stages of illness. The longest "case" in our home so far is at day #9 today. The H1N1 has been documented as an outbreak in this region. Schools had closed early because of this, etc. (We have not been tested, so we cannot be sure this is what we have, of course. Yet, we are getting "cabin fever" for needing to "isolate" for so long.)

It's Father's Day and my elderly stepdad was able to go to his home today, after a lenghty hospitalization. He is totally worn out from chemotherapy, radiation, active cancer, blood clots and more. He has just recovered from a severe infection, due to a very low white count. His prognosis is very poor. He is very worn out. My mother, his caregiver, is totally worn out, too. He's been a great stepdad to me and a wonderful husband to my mother. I love him very much.

My Dad had left us, having taken his own life, over 30 years ago now. I still miss him, especially on Father's Day.

And...this is only representative of a very small portion of "what is on my plate today." The rest, I cannot even begin to mention yet. Maybe I will find the words and the strength or courage another time. I know we all have days like these, at one time or another.

Somedays... are much more difficult than others.
Yet, the sun always shines through... sooner or later.

I am waiting...ever so patiently.

Wow. (((DejaVu))) it's been wonderful to see you post. I'm sorry I wasn't here sooner to see it. Busy with my kids.

My plate runneth over with problems. Not the least of which is a raccoon who has taken up residence underneath my house. Sigh. Don't even know who to start with on that one!

No air in my car and can't be fixed, properly!, until July 2. Of course this comes with the summer heat wave.

And my air inside can't keep up. Not just the heat. The raccoon took up residence at some point in the ducts. 2 of the air conditioner vents don't put out anything. Felt inside them and they are SO ripped up. Aargh.

~sigh......have to see the lawyer and make some big decisions.... Why are these things soooooo hard? And why do women have such a hard time standing up for their own rights??

Kalani needs her shots...

More and more packing...

Time to enjoy life, in some measure, love in someway, and be grateful for my friends..... ...and my relationship with God.

My daughters left a little while ago so I am playing "catch up" here. I had a lovely pm from Doximama who sends her love, thoughts and prayers to everyone in "SOSville"...says she is running on emply but wanted me to tell you that while she isn't posting, she's thinking of us.
*whisper...when someone is running on empty, we need to fill them up.

It's so nice to see Dejavu back in the fold...you were missed!

And Addy, you must have your arms full of grandaughter by now. We will want pictures!

Mistiis, hoping that you are about finished with that book and especially hoping it has a satisfactory ending...then....you can begin again.

Nikki, I want to hear all about Boston...never been there, it is on our to do list. And Goofy girl............LOLOL!

doody, what is that saying...if you didn't have bad luck you wouldn't have any luck at all? Awful time to not have air...maybe the racoon got in your engine too! Ackkk.

I need to read more to catch up....Hugs for the room/boom.

My plate runneth over. 1 dog has a vet appointment this morning, Mom has Dr appointment early this afternoon, baby has to go get shots. Found out last week her Mom and Dad didn't keep up on her shots ( imagine that )...................hasn't had any since she was 6 months old!! She is now 15 months old!!!!! ARRRGGGGG.

Sometimes I dread days off.....I have to go back to work just to rest up.

My son was sentenced last week, he dodged a bullet, the state offered 1 yr and a day followed by 1 yr house arrest and 2 years probation. he took the offer. The minimum manditory sentence was 15 yrs. His gf has not been as lucky. The State offered her 15 years! She has 2 prior felony drug charges.........you think she would have learned. SIGH!!!

So my life is full and busy. I don't have a lot of time to visit. I sure miss everyone and hope you all are well. I read when I can and post on the run!!

Dottie

today is my day off, but my boss asked me to come in for the morning. the van stopped running last night it was after 11:00 before we could get it towed. Rebecca was out with some friends and it stopped in a restaurant parking lot. I'm so greatful it didn't stop while we were in Missouri this weekend.
I had a wonderful trip. It was filled with both sad and happy news. one of my uncles has liver cancer and one of my cousins cancer has returned. I reunited with an aunt that i loved dearly. (her and my uncle divorced) she disappeared without a word and nobody talked about it. Her daughter came to the reunion. It was so good to see her again. She has had a "troubled" life but is doing better now.
My boss should be here any minute now to get me. LOL I told her that was the only way i could come in. LOL..... take care i love you guys!!!!
