Speaking of birthdays...

Today is my sister's 50th birthday! She sure doesn't look her age. She's my baby sister and I'm very proud of her. She's a wonderful wife and mom to two teenage boys.

Happy Birtday, dear sister.


I love you, Sally!

Spring is here, new life begins

I always look forward to Spring and the coming of the eagle cams! Right now there are cameras on two nests in BC. I can't wait to see the little eaglets emerge from their shells and start to grow. It's been something I've looked forward to every Spring since 2006.

Here's the Sidney mom and dad. They take turns sitting on the two eggs and bringing their mate food while they brood.

And here's the Hornby Island mom (or dad, it's hard to tell sometimes) waiting to be relieved for a while. They have one egg but we're expecting another any day.


It's so interesting, and sometimes heartbreaking, to watch the little ones grow and learn to fly. Last year was too exciting. If you remember I posted about the eaglet falling out of the nest and other things. I hope this year is calm.

Shoes, and other things...

While I was looking for layouts I saw this one and it reminded me of Kate and her collection of great shoes so I just had to use it. I like making my own layouts but it's just too much of a problem here but I thought this one was cute. I happen to love shoes and have a closet full (even though I haven't been able to wear them for a while)...

I see more and more of our old JS buddies are posting at KCL so I'm going to start posting there also. It seems a lot more intimate and the guy who developed it really seems to care. So I'll still be here, or there, or somewhere...

I just don't want to lose my friends!

Have a great week.

Hello again

Hi, everyone! I'm really trying to get back to posting but it's a slow process for me. It's kind of like a group of people who are very close who live in a small town and then they're all moved to a big city. Even though they still care about each other it's harder to stay in touch and keep that closeness. At least that's how it is for me. Maybe someday it will feel like home again.

I'm trying to get back on my feet. My foot that was broken feels funny on the floor and it's very hard for me to get back in the process of walking without the boot. I have no problem with the support of the boot but without it I feel so vulnerable, like it's going to collapse and I'll fall, which I did this morning. I was walking back from the bathroom, very gingerly, and tripped. Not being too steady anyway, I fell to the floor and twisted my good foot underneath me, breaking a toe. It's all black and swollen and hurts like crazy! Now I can't walk again without pain. If it ain't one thing it's another!

Since I've been housebound so much I've spent a lot of time playing Qwerty on Pogo. It's like Scrabble and really gives your brain a good workout. I met a great lady months ago and we've become good friends. We usually meet several times a week and talk and play Qwerty together. She's like a long-lost family member. I've told her all my troubles and we're still friends! She's lived in Turkey for many years and it's so interesting to hear about things there, things that I'll never see. She also has a blog here on blogger. Her name is Spot, the turkey. :) She has a lot of great recipes and now has a fun food survey there. Go check it out. I filled mine out and will post it later.

So that's about all that's going on here; more pain in my other foot, Molly's on new pain medicine and we're crossing our fingers that it works and doesn't hurt her, Paul's taking care of things as much as he can, I'm getting ready to get back in the world, and so on. I'll be around to visit everyone and try to catch up.

Have a great weekend!

A quick hello

Hi to all,

I've been thinking about all of you every day and trying to get myself motivated to join the gang again. I don't know why but it seems much harder to really get excited about posting now. I remember all the happy days when I would sit for hours, first learning HTML and then working on my journals. I really did have some bad ones at the start, but they progressed. My last one, the Christmas snowmen, was one of my best and it was the one that I remember the most because it crashed and burned along with JS and the memories.

Anyway, not to bring all that up again, it's just been on my mind lately. I look at the HTML here and don't even want to bother with it. I do read your journals now and then and wish that I was back in the loop so maybe I'll start trying to accomplish that. If we only had the front page again, that's what I miss the most!

We're doing OK here, just trying to get by. I'm still struggling with my foot, it isn't well yet, and Molly had to have surgery yesterday so that was very traumatic. She's doing better today but the vet found that her liver has a problem from the pain meds so she had to stop them immediately. Poor baby just can't get a break. :(

Lady had a bad asthma/allergy attack the other day and we thought she would never start breathing again but she finally did. The vets have all said there's nothing we can do but it seems that something should help. I just wonder why they all seem to act like - it's just an animal, no biggie - they're our family! I think the whole world has gone crazy. Or maybe it's just me...

So I'm going to spend tomorrow just reading journals and trying to catch up with everyone. I do miss you and you're always in my thoughts and prayers.

Be back tomorrow, I promise!

Hugs to all,
