A week ago, we had to say goodbye to our dog, Koko. Koko was almost 15 years old and had been with us since he was around 8 months old. He was a survivor, of heart issues, bladder stones, cancer, and a scary breathing episode. When we first welcomed our Japanese Chin, Koko, into our … Continue reading Night-Night Mr. Koko
I wrote and published a post today, but it doesn't seem to show in WordPress Reader (at least for me) and, so far, I have not heard back from WordPress Support. Trying again with this post and linking back to my RA Birthday post. Hope it works!

Mum tried to convince me to keep up with the tidying... never stuck, though. Look at this place! What a tip! What would Mum think?

Four days, including travel, but we fit a lot into those days together -- not only our primary purpose, but also a couple of meals out, a book, two movies, and a side trip to take a picture I thought Esther would appreciate! The Primary Purpose As I mentioned in my previous post, we went … Continue reading Our Quick Trip
Hope Let's start with the good news, from a personal point of view.

Forecasted high for tomorrow is 41 Celsius (nearly 106 F)! What the heck? For a place that has generally moderate temperatures, we are just not prepared. I spent … Continue reading I’m Melting! Melting!
It's Mother's Day in my part of the world. Happy Mother's Day! My husband brought me home some Spring flowers yesterday and both he and my younger son gave me cards. We are having a chicken done on the barbecue rotisserie tonight. Should be yummy. Probably no wine, though, as I am limiting my sugar … Continue reading Mother’s Day

If you’ve read my earlier post, you’ll know that I was waiting for test results to find out why my ANA level (potential marker for an autoimmune disorder) was so high, with the particular test looking for rheumatoid.
