For Today… August 6, 2018
Looking out my window… sunny. It’s in the 80’s and I’m in my dark room with the shades drawn to cool things down.
I am thinking… about Daniel’s G-tube surgery on Wednesday morning.
I am thankful… for my favorite vet happening to be at the clinic today for a staff meeting and crashing Minion’s appointment with my other favorite vet. It was wonderful watching Dr. Fischer feeding Greenies to my little demon one by one out of her hand while Dr. Matt examined him and did the shots. (I cannot say enough positive things about Chuckanut Valley Veterinary Clinic. They caught Jethro’s thyroid tumors in time to treat them, gave Homer another week of life, and love my little black monster so much that he has groupies when he comes in for vet visits.)
One of my favorite things… my black beast. I’ll miss him while I’m down at Seattle Children’s with Daniel.
I am wearing… jammies. Clothes today were a charcoal shirt from Old Navy (I have three) and jeans capris from Kohl’s. I have such a short inseam that my capris are more like clam diggers on me. #shortpeopleproblems
I am creating… a packing list for the hospital.
I am reading… Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans
I am hoping… all goes well with Daniel’s surgery on Wednesday.
I am learning… all about G-tubes.
In my kitchen… I had a turkey florentine meatball from Haggen for dinner tonight.
In the school room… one month until school starts. Daniel can’t wait.
Post Script… the page for a US agent for International Pen Friends is here. I’ve been a member for close to 30 years and I cannot recommend them highly enough for anyone who wants to find their kids a pen pal or who wants to find one for themselves.
Shared Quote… “The Psalms are, in a sense, God’s way of holding space for us. They invite us to rejoice, wrestle, cry, complain, offer thanks, and shout obscenities before our Maker without self-consciousness and without fear.” ?

A moment from my day… One of my favorite choirs doing one of my favorite Bach pieces.
