It's been a week...
Thank you everyone for your kind words and continued prayers for my friend, Sarah. Each are greatly appreciated! The surgery on Monday went well, however, it only yielded more questions, no answers. The pathology results are supposed to come in today, and hopefully they will provide some needed answers.
With all that is going on right now, I'm at emotional overwhelm. The other day, a few hours after doing a little therapy with my friends Ben & Jerry, I discovered I had returned the carton to the refrigerator, not the freezer. Sigh. Then yesterday, I bought my non-refundable plane tickets for my upcoming work trip to Tennessee only to discover I had bought them for the wrong day. Sigh.
Some good news, Oliver also went to the vet for his annual inspection. He was declared a pillar of health! He even lost weight from last year, a whole 1.5 pounds! (0.45kg) - Way to go Oliver! He purred non-stop through the entire experience.
And now for a few random pictures...
My search for a new local "happy place" took me to the North Fork Skykomish River, which is up in the mountains. Nice place, but a little far away and only accessible in the non-snowy months.
Last weekend, I took a walk to a nearby park to make some intentional space for grieving. I passed the empty horse show courts. I counted 16 lonely, sad courts, I wonder if these ever get any use?
I hope your weekend is all it needs to be. For me, I'll be up on the garage roof once again trying to patch the holes. The recent rain revealed many more leaks. Oh joy.
