Pie pie anybody ?

Missed posting last night. Was working on Emily's birthday movie until 4 AM. I have some new video software on my iPod that I'm finding very exciting. But today I am trying to read a paper book and give my fingers and wrists a break.

Continuing to pray for Grace as she moves through the steps of her transplant these days.

Dancing while you get chemo is the newest Internet craze.

Not sure I can picture Grace dancing with nurses but I'm sure she'll have them in stitches with her witty sense of humor.

We continue to get sweet pictures of my new great-niece from out east. She is such a beauty!

I finally understand the meaning of rosebud lips.

And in iPod Apps news I learned how to do this today with Photo Shaper. Very easy.

Just when I thought Harry couldn't get any cuter…

We're laying here listening to the wind roar outside. Nice to be warm and comfy! I've started reading the hunger games books in an effort to put down my iPod. Not sure I'll have good dreams tonight.

Up at the crack of dawn tomorrow to have some last-minute dental work done. After tomorrow it would be too late because it would be too close to my surgery date.

This made me laugh, although it's probably been more days than that. I am too lazy to do the math.

Never did understand pi either. And I'm including the book Life of Pi too. Fascinating but deeply flawed. No desire to see that movie.

This kind of pie I could deal with!

Baby news!

I promised you good news and here she is!

Rebekah was born early this morning to my nephew and his wife in out east. A first grandchild for my sister. We are all so very happy for them.

You won't see as many pictures of her as of nearby Cooper but she will be just as loved.

My other good news is that my doctor got hold of the technical report from the two week heart monitor loop test I had in January and it didn't show any abnormal rhythm. So that's really good. The test has not been read by a cardiologist yet so I may know a bit more after that but the cardiologist says there's no reason I can't have surgery.


Today I was feeling a bit sorry for myself that I can't walk for exercise but then I got a grip, literally, and picked up my high tech spaghetti sauce hand weights and a cat toy and Harrison and I had a shake up.

I leave you with a few of my favorite pictures I've ever taken in a grocery store parking lot.

Love you Ava!

Spa time

Edited to add: not sure why this wouldn't load last night. I'll be writing again tonight with lots of good news!

First of all, all systems are go for my friend Grace for her stem cell transplant. Everything goes into gear tomorrow! I know she'll appreciate your prayers and good thoughts. She's going in very upbeat and positive and that will help. Got her wig packed and everything!

Here are the pictures of the spa portion of Emily's birthday:

And last but not least I looked through my videos of Cooper on Valentine's day and found this remake of my song for Caleb when he was a baby. Upside Cooper is very cute. Downside you'll hear me sing.

See it here

To be continued.
