dinner guests, what's for dinner, and invisible

1 We enjoyed a great night with out grandkidlets, kids, and a family friend tonight. So nice to have a houseful of people, chatting, eating, smiling, laughing, and thoroughly enjoying each other.
2 Mr P made a delicious dinner of kale salad, veggies and dip, pot of rice, and two organic chickens cooked in the crock pot. Deliciousness!!!
3 Izzy has so much fun tonight playing "stealth". She puts a green blanket on herself to hide and then slowly and carefully slides into the room and spooks us! Ah yes, Halloween is coming!!

eat this, more like myself, party on, and my darlings

1 I take the opportunity to actually make myself a "real" dinner; a pot of steamed baby potatoes and carrots and a green salad to go with it. I savour each bite knowing it's healthy nourishing food and tasty too.
2 My body and mind have been so exhausted from all the activities going on around me that it's been challenging to stay grounded and focused but tonight after an afternoon of puttering and resting I feel a bit more like "me."
3 My friend and I are planning to have an online business party. What a great opportunity to make new friends and help people get healthy too. Good times. More posts about this will be coming. I suspect we will have more than a few laughs to share.
3a I surprise the grandkidlets with a visit to their house today. Kes is busy on his ipad but Izzy comes a runnin' and launches herself into my arms. I miss them both so much and am determined to organize my work schedule so these two darlings can come for a sleepover. I need more hugs please.

alive, walk, and talk

1 It has been a most stressful week and that's putting it mildly! And we survived.
2 My dear friend J, was in a horrific car accident last Tuesday. She came by ambulance to our hospital and had neurosurgery on her lower back and is recovering slowly. There were over 12 fractures. I'm feeling grateful that she is alive and can walk. I'm feeling grateful for the neurosurgeons who worked quickly and with precision to remove the damaged vertebrae and give her a new lease on life. She can walk.
3 My sweet friend G and I finally have a chance to talk. It feels so good to just let it all out, to have her let it out and to feel the hugs through the phone line. Miss you my friend xo
