I intended to blog yesterday morning, and take the weekend off.
My stepmother, Edith Lael, fell in her kitchen yesterday morning and broke her left leg. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital for surgery, and I am awaiting updates. Please pray for her, and for my dad, too. Edith is a spirited lady, and will probably thrive. (A couple of years ago, she had pneumonia over Christmas and had to be hospitalized. She went on and on about how nice the nurses and doctors were, and how good the food was. I think she’s the only person I know who could make being in the hospital at Christmas a positive thing!) She’s a talented artist, active with her local little theatre group in Grand Coulee, and has tons and tons of devoted friends.
On a much more mundane note, I also spilled wine on my keyboard and had to replace it before I could write a word. (Told you I had other vices.) A waggish friend, reading both the Prayer Shawl blog and the one on Cleopatra, my favorite slot machine, suggested I wear my prayer shawl to the casino. Sandi, I love your sense of humor! And I sure miss those get togethers in Cave Creek for biscuits, gravy and philosophy.
Have a wonderful weekend and a very happy New Year’s Day. I’ll be on the blog Monday morning, as usual, and bring you up to speed on the doings here.
