Eddie and Jenny (Carols Kiddies) with Copper and Binzen. August 2005.
I picked up Coppers remains from the vets today. That got me crying all over again. On Sunday we will take him to the forest and scatter him in his favorite place, where he can roam the woods for eternity.
I had an awful nightmare the other day. I dreamt that I put my 2 month old, baby neice down on a ledge and walked away to get her a clean sleeper. I turned in time to see her fall off. When I picked her up , her little arm was broken and bent at a sickening angle. It was so real. What a horrid dream. Where do thoughts like this come from?
We finally got Carols kids bunks out of storage and have them set up in their 'suite'. They couldn't wait to go to bed last night. They had today off school for Pro D day. We took Carol to her appointment and me and J&E went for McGriddles. Then we went for groceries and back for Carol. Even though it was only grocery shopping, Spending time with just them and myself is special. For me anyways. I dont get time with them alone too often. They were great helpers. Both picked out their favorite apples, Vedgies and dessert. They seem happier to eat vedgies when they get to help pick them out and bag them. Next step... getting them to learn how to wash and prepare them!
The weather remains absolutely glorious. Clear and bright. We have an arctic front on us though. Not a very common occcurance for us in lotus land. Its -6 this morning they say -15 with the wind chill. I hope my buds and shoots dont burn up with the cold.
I am off to work soon so, all you folks with weekends off and regular sorts of work hours.... Have a lovely weekend.
