Almost 4:30 Saturday afternoon, and again I have fought most of the afternoon with my Android device, for which WP has a crappy setup.  Anyone know enough to give some pointers?

Nevertheless, I am very grateful today, for a large number of different happenings in my life.  I got my creatinine and other lab work back, and I’m back in the semi-safe zone.  I am glad to know this, because I decided years ago that I am not going to have kidney disease with dialysis.  I still feel the same way.

I remain with my Mom, which fact is part of the reason I haven’t posted.  I think I have been starved for deep intelligent discussions, and that’s almost all we do.  She is healing from her knee replacement. though she continues with swelling and pain.  She went for a long walk with a friend today — I bet it was more than 1/2 mile.  Her outlook is good, and we are enjoying each other’s company.  We’re about ready for a couple of days off,  which we have not yet scheduled but will soon.

My family is doing well, and I spend special hugs and love to my nieces and nephews and their families. In his or her own way, each of them is juggling new stuff in their lives, and I send them all love and success.

Today is overcast, but we have had strings of gorgeous weather, with highs in the 60s-70s, and lows in the 40s — cold enough to need a blanket in bed.  I don’t remember an October with so few rainy days before now.  Almost every day is mostly sunny and bright blue skies.

I have not spent any time on your posts, my bloggy friends.  I hope you all understand how much I needed this time off.  I’m feeling more and more balanced every day.  Please know that I will be back — maybe another couple of weeks, maybe sooner.  I know everyone needs a break from difficult or intricate responsibilities, and this one is ideal for me.  But I will be back — please don’t give up altogether!  A big HOWDY to my new readers — I’m glad you’ve joined us.

Right now, I am tripping along from one good day to the next, and for that I am exceedingly grateful:  grateful to have this opportunity, grateful to spend it with Mom, and thrilled that she is doing better, grateful for my health and the well-being of my spirit.  I am a very lucky woman.

    • I’ve missed you, too.Time for me to get back to daily posts. I want to write — I just can’t get myself started.
      Going to try again right now — wish me luck!

    • My dear friend Packo,

      I am watching with horror the storm ransacking your country. I have never seen such devastation, and coming on the heels of the earthquake, you must all be feeling beaten down. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope you are somewhere safe and warm and dry.

      When things settle down, please send a note so I’ll know you’re okay. Much, much love — Judith

I love to read your thoughts...
