Flowers in the backyard.
I generally don’t approve of waving around family drama on the Internet however I realize there are folks that know me that have only seen bits and pieces of this story here or on Facebook and would probably appreciate a few more details.
My Dad had a heart attack last week. It was scary for a little bit but he got a stent and went home a couple days later. I spent some time in Orleans hanging out with him and helping around the place. He is doing fantastic and other than maybe a little low on stamina he is his regular self.
Other than the reason for being there, it was a great week with gorgeous weather. We went for walks and made lunch and puttered around. I worked outside. Whenever I wanted a snack I stood under the fig tree and ate figs.
And now I’m home. So at the end of last month I had my Mom for a visit and a few days after she left I went to Atlanta and a few days after that I rushed off to California.
There a bunch of people expecting things from me like love notes, information I promised to pass along and photos I promised to print and send. I owe crits and have neglected to follow up on getting together with some folks like I said I would.
I’m getting to it.
