Good news for a change. My dear friend Detta called this afternoon to ask if I have been getting her texts. Well, no. I got a text from here on Thursday asking about my nieces, but that was it for a text from Detta on my new phone. When I had to get the new phone, I lost my contacts and all prior texts. Evidently Detta sent me a couple of very important texts during the days when I still had the old phone but couldn’t use it because I couldn’t see the screen. Anyway, during tht time she had texted to tell me that her daughter Sarah got married. Sarah and Christian quietly slipped away to a beautiful mountain top in Ashville, North Carolina, to exchange vows. And I missed the whole thing! Sarah moved to Ashville a couple of years ago after graduating from college. She met Christian there and they have been together since.
But in September, they decided it was time to tie the knot and move back to New Hampshire. Congratulations to the bride and groom. And congratulations to the parents of the bride, Detta and Tom. They are so delighted that Sarah and Christian are moving to New Hampshire and will live close by. I couldn’t be happier for all of them.
I started my day down by the dock with Shadow. My new neighbor, Andrew, had offered to show me some of his dog training techniques. After a few minutes, he agreed that Shadow certainly wants to run the show, but I did get some helpful ideas. I spent the rest of the day going to Heather and Jed’s to feed the guinea pigs and do some laundry and coming home to cook while waiting to hear from about my nieces. Hospice called my niece Lynn’s immediate family this morning to tell them to come as it looked like she would pass at any moment. But tonight she is still holding on and the wait continues. I talked to my niece in Charlotte who had surgery this week and found out that she was being released today. She had emergency surgery on Tuesday to have a large tumor that was laying on her spine removed. The surgery to remove her left kidney that was scheduled for this week has been delayed and we are just waiting for the results of the biopsy to find out what her next steps will be. Lots of tense waiting time. That’s why I decided to spend my afternoon cooking. I made eggplant parmesan and a lasagna using thin sliced zucchini instead of pasta. I hope to take the eggplant parmesan to my sister-in-law and I’ll try the zucchini lasagna and share it with the Goldstones upon their return from Maine tomorrow evening if it is a success.
