As I write this, we are all–4 males, one feline and three human males, and one human female, sitting in the knotty-pine-walled living room of our stone castle on the hill with natural light streaming in–two of us on computers, one of us on a kindle, and the female gazing at old technology (hardbound book), and the feline in recline, on the floor at our feet–quite the family vignette, and so, so familiar and comforting
, something that a Dutch Master would ache to paint, but I captured it instead on a Canon 7D–oops, the female just grabbed her walker and made a run for the bedroom–“time to get hooked in again”–one male left with her, and the other is assisting, the cat jumped onto the coffee table and is drinking water from a human glass and I had to remind him that he has his own water dish…oh, well, it was nice while it lasted…
Lin continues to be weaker this week. Decided against chemo as the cancer markers were up and the liver numbers were way up and Lin is so weak and the chemo, though we think it has helped us make it through these 7 months and counting, always knocks her for a temporary loop, especially as regards nausea and red blood cell count…still an option and we will re-discuss on Friday.
Oh, and Kadra just went into labor. Finally. I tease that her belly is so big now that her body is in 2 time zones. She carries them high and long. We are excited, to say the very least.
The Circle of Life. Again.
We appreciate the many good people who are connected in love and unity of purpose through this Blog and in other ways. We appreciate the angels who come to our mostly male abode each Monday and clean the spatters off the walls, etc. We appreciate the lone angel and her assistant who bring us flowers and chocolate chip cookies each Sunday. We appreciate the culinary artists who bring food each Monday and Thursday. We appreciate whoever planted the dense patches of daffodils that are once again taking over the property–something I look forward to each Spring with great anticipation. We appreciate whoever created all this beauty around us. All in all, a good day and a good season.
One at a time…as so many things are in the Circle.
