One More Update

This weekend…. In case anyone stops by…





Guess to who? or is it whom? drat…. 



















The update button was flashing on my keyboard.

What, you don’t have one of those?

That is odd. hmmmm. Well mine has been blinking for some time, but I have ignored it. I guess it is true that after a few years many fade away from blogging. I did enjoy it  but it does consume a bit of time, not so much blogging but keeping up with others as well. I still receive notices when a new post is …uhm posted, on someones blog though. But I don’t receive very many notices anymore as most bloggers I followed seem to have drifted away too. 

But an update, in case anyone drifts by and is wondering.

I am still practicing, I am a partner now. We are still loving our home and continue to make improvements, additions, little changes and such. Spring is sort of here, so we are anxious to play outside, planting and expanding our gardens. 

I have my multi engine rating now, so I am still flying when possible. Actually I hope to go up this weekend if the weather forecast improves. sheish. I am becoming annoyed with the soggy mother nature.

We are all doctors now, Jill has been working hard and now has her DBA! We are very proud of her!

On a somewhat larger change to our life style. We opened our home to two foster children a little while ago for an emergency situation. A little boy and a little girl who had no family other than their father.. who was in the hospital. They arrived on a Friday night with very little in the way of belongings and very undernourished, needless to say they were beyond scared and clung together so tightly.  We opened our home and our hearts to these two angels. They were in awe of so many things that children of their age should take for granted. So we spoiled them, cared for them and protected them. We showed them love and support and slowly they emerged from their sheer panic stage they had when they arrived to one of apprehensive comfort while their father fought his battle in the hospital. He unfortunately lost that battle. 

So now a little four year old girl and a five year old boy were alone in the world. Orphans. Our plan of providing care in an emergency situation… well it changed. They were in our hearts now. When we had to tell them their father had passed, our little miss asked nervously what was going to happen to them,  for how long would they stay with us, tears were forming again. I asked both of them what I promised their first day with us, our little mister said that I would keep them safe.  They were trembling in fear again. They always had this fear of abandonment, that this was not going to last. They did not have a fantastic childhood… Now they had experienced love, new clothing, a soft clean bed, two if they wanted, but for now they only wanted the one, toys, a puppy, omg toys, I told you, we spoiled them. There was so much more, we fell in love with them. We were giving them all  they had missed out on. For them it was a fairy tale.

Now they feared it was going to end, how long were they going to stay.

I told her, forever.

Unless they were not happy with us. 

She whispered, forever?

 I smiled and asked her if she would like that, if it would be ok, because we loved them so much.  We really wanted them to join our family. Forever.  He was holding his breath, so was she. Their tears were still wet on their cheeks.

They are very good huggers. They call me mommy. They really never knew their birth mother.  

They have four moms now. They discovered they have aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents now too. 

They will remain in our care, in our love. Forever.

So this is it, my update. I can push the button and send this off.

Today is here again

Bonne Fete Papa!

tu me manques 

je pense à toi tout le temps

Je t’aimerai toujours

mon amour pour toi papa

je t’aimerai jusqu’à la fin des temps

Seasons Reflections

As the day gets closer and things calm down… wait, they are calming down?

hmm not for me, well it works better for the blog if I say …. and things are calming down.

So I will stick with that.

… as things calm down… (there, see how well that worked?)

We reflect more, no not like Christmas lights.. sheish.

Ok so I am going for a bit of levity with this post as some recent ones  have been dabbed with a bit of remorse.

We reflect on the year, the things we did, the things we wanted to do. Perhaps the resolutions that were unfulfilled. 

I always advise against making New Years resolutions. If you want to do something, just do it, if you want to stop… well then stop. 

eeeps I am diverging. 

Best click on that Read the rest of this entry thingie, to see what else I am reflecting on. I must be a bright bulb or something. Maybe just flickering?

Enough already, no more flu

I don’t like colds, hmm or flu, not really sure what it is, but I don’t like it.


This one has been hanging on for some time now, I am quite tired of it. I think today I am feeling better, but I know it is still lurking. 

To make things worse, now my roomies seem to be not feeling the best either. 

Now that is irksome, because if they are sick, who is going to take care of me?

I mean… really… Oh I am sure I am going to get a dirty look now, perhaps three of them, lol… sort of like the one I received this morning when I told Aimee to stay away…. she is sick and I don’t want to catch it. eeeeps

Love should not be restricted.

This image caught me today. A simple thing.

Love is love.
