Ok....I had intended to keep writing while away....my sort of adventures, but this trip to Michigan took an unexpected turn. My dear friend Rick (too many years to count) had a heart attack Friday evening and my thoughts have been preoccupied with his well-being. I almost lost him. But, he is off the respirator, sitting up and doing so much better. His memory is suffering, but we keep prodding and hoping that soon the short term stuff will stick. I am so thankful that he is doing so well.
Now...I am abandoning Rick to his mother and heading to Canada tomorrow...please let the border traffic be light and no, I do not have weapons, liquor or beef jerky to declare. I'm looking forward to seeing my aunt, uncle, cousins. I will try to post from there, but not sure how my time will work out as I'm sure I'll be knee deep in family fun.
Just a note....the lace scarf is coming along GREAT. No pics yet...I'm waiting until I have it finished, but it looks great so far and I've managed to repeatedly pick up every stitch I dropped....yipes.
Happy Dominion Day to the Canadian family and Happy 4th to the Yanks and a very Happy Birthday to my dear, Ashlyn. Happy 18th, Sweetheart!

Ok....so, I've taken pics of Mum's roses which are gorgeous...always. She was just saying last night, "I was supposed to feed my roses on the 15th and didn't." Perhaps this is why my roses don't look like hers? Perhaps they need a schedule? These are just a few pics of my favorite one...enjoy! Tomorrow, the lilies...

Ok...so yesterday I had lunch with Linda, my dear friend of many years and former English teacher (junior high....eek). It was Linda's birthday and I hope she had a wonderful day....we had sushi, so that couldn't have been a bad addition to the celebration. As usual, I talked her ear off trying to catch up and as usual, the conversation closed in on books. Linda has recommended so many books that I have loved and it seems whenever we chat; online, phone, in person....we always come around to book recommendations. I love this part of our conversations. I love that we have similar taste in material and that she is so willing to share, because you know that books and reading are all about sharing. So we swapped titles until we meet again. Linda is one of the reasons I constantly think about moving back to Michigan...
So, Happy Birthday dear Linda....if I move back, will you knit with me?
