Thank YOU For Each Drop
precious rain sustains
nurtures nature’s newborn buds
thank YOU for each drop
Happenings here in the Gnome Mound:
Belin's teacher emails each day to tell us about the kids activities...so far she has visited Versailles, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, champs Elysees to name a few places of note.
Ellie (our petite standard poodle) is undergoing knee surgery this morning...she burst her cruciate ligament on her left knee (last year the right knee was close to rupture, but we managed to get her in for surgery before it completely blew) I had to go out and rescue her when she went out to pee yesterday afternoon. Gord was with Rosie at the vet with one of the kitties, (Nef, who had a UTI), so it was up to me to fetch my crying, 51 lb dog and lift her from the ground and carry her in. Adrenaline is a powerful natural drug...I can't believe I managed to get her all the way up the stairs to our bed from the middle of the yard, but I did. LOVE is also a powerful drug!!!
Tomorrow, Rosie will have braces put on.
My voice has been a bit wonky and difficult to understand since Sunday evening...but seems to be settling back into a delicate northern European accent of some sort again this morning...whew! I have an MRI scheduled for a few weeks from now before I go in to talk to my doc at the end of May about what medication to go on next to slow down the MS train. And am looking forward to some healing acupuncture this afternoon.
And Gordon, dear Gordon, is somehow managing to keep our ship afloat...ambulance driver, chauffeur, medicine giver, grocery shopper, meal maker, groundskeeper, working musician and working his "real job" in between! (But the stress shows...my sweet darling man...if only I could make your life easier instead of harder!)
Life is complicated and beautiful...and I for one am grateful for each drop. (I cannot speak for my husband, who's life is immeasurably difficult--my daily doings/beings are so much simpler--but in general he is still an amazingly happy guy!)
