It’s been so long since I last participated! In the meantime I’ve had a breast cancer diagnosis, a mastectomy and reconstruction, and my beloved husband (who has Parkinson’s) has had to go into long-term care. After 48 years spent together, that’s been pretty hard for both of us to handle. Eventually, though, I’ve begun to see that I must – MUST – go on living as best I can the life God has given me. So this spring I treated myself to something
New sofa cushions! I love the colours, and the sight of these lifts my spirit whenever I walk into the living room. I’m lucky, because just about any colour looks good against the grey of the sofa. And here’s a closer look at those orchid metal balls I found to add to the collection in the bowl! They sparkle most beautifully when the morning sun catches them. That really tickles me.
I even have something happy to post about this time! My daughter and I discovered a wonderful soda fountain that recently opened in a favourite neighborhood area. They use as many locally made ingredients as possible, and the hot fudge sauce is even made at home by the owner’s wife! Everything’s been carefully chosen to be the best they can find. So far we’ve tried the egg creams and the sundaes, both delicious, and look forward to trying many of their other offerings. It’s hard to find time when we both are free to make the trip to this area, so we’re not too too worried about the weight we will surely gain. Besides, everyone needs a treat now and then, right? So it should be a very good, very special treat.
That’s it for now. Nice to be here again. My thanks to Leila at Like Mother Like Daughter for hosting.
