A few weeks ago we celebrated my sister and brother in laws 40th anniversary. Today they will be attending a Eucharistic Celebration with many, many couples at the Cathedral in their town. I expect the Bishop will be blessing these unions once again, amazing how quickly 40 years have flown by. It's been a whirlwind of events this week, my other sister had undergone a major surgery, we are still worried about her, she's not getting better fast enough. Although I think her extended stay in the hospital probably saved the young man in the bed next to her. Apparently he suffered a heart attack during the night and staff were stumped? He's resting in an appropriate ward. She's an ICU nurse with many years of experience. She also teaches these emergency procedures, I bet she'll be telling those nurses they need to attend. Like many professions, nursing just isn't what it used to be. Have we really advanced? or have we just saved a few bucks.
Back to the newly weds. They'll have a good time today, at least for a few hours, dinner afterwards, and then the bride will have to catchup with school work and the groom will doze off on the lazy boy. Life is good!..
Me on the other hand, well, one more week of classes and then time to hit the housework and some serious spring cleaning, my garden has been o.k. with perennial plantings so far, but soon I'll have to clear out some of the leftovers. My handy Andy killed a good portion of the grass with weed killer so... guess what ? I left him unsupervised, and I don't care. Time to learn something of being a home owner and not get your wife to "fix" your mistakes. I'm in my sewing room AGAIN today. On the reading front I'm almost finished Peaches for Monsieur le Cure, Joanne Harris. GOOD BOOK. Wish I spoke/read French. I'm trying to desperately reduce my book collection, it's the hardest thing ever. And at some point I must sand down a little rocker, it's a nice day out there and it's easier to sand outside than in. Who needs more dust, when I have cat hair to deal with. I'm a cheap date, I'm sure you've gathered that, give me a sanding block and an old chuck of some furniture and I'm happy. Dreaming of a drill press, no idea what I'd do with it... We've had a fair bit of rain this week so the pond is topped up and the fish are happy. Have a good week.
