So - my plan is to talk to a surgeon and find out what it would cost. And if they think it's a good idea. I'm quite confused at this point.
Changing the subject to something more pleasant - here is one of the reasons I love Hobby Lobby - their full page Christmas and Easter ads. In case you can't read it, it says, "Son, I want you to Build a Bridge - here are all the tools you will need. See you soon. Love, Dad." And then it quotes I Peter 3:18 from The Message. I just love it.
I mentioned the rainy day we had for Easter - rain, not snow. Yesterday and today have been what you call spring-like. We're looking at more rain and/or snow the rest of the week. What usually happens here in Colorado is that sometime in May, the ridiculous spring weather stops abruptly and it turns into summer instantly.
But - this morning my eyes jerked open at 6:15 and I saw this glorious sunrise. It was hope for a lovely day.
Then I was sitting here in my comfy recliner, getting ready to have my devotions. I looked out the window and saw the cutest little squirrel playing all by him(her)self in our big ash tree. We have a really big squirrel who loves to raid the bird feeders, but this little one hasn't discovered that restaurant yet. I wish I'd had video, but it was such fun watching it. It was just all over that tree - I wish I had caught the part where it was balancing on the end of the slimmest branch possible. I love how you can see the reflection of the eyes.
All the rain and snow has really made the flowers happy. They're really resilient.
I love the abundance of grape hyacinths.
Some regular hyacinths are new this year.
The very cheerful yellow and orange tulips.
Does anybody know what these are?
I just finished the latest Jennifer Chiaverini book The Lost Quilter. Have you read it yet? She is an amazing writer - I say she quilts a really good story. What I love is the way she intertwines the present with the past. But the past almost always involves slavery - and I have to say that every time I read something like that, or watch Roots, I get very distressed. It is a blight on our history.
I just have to end with a great story Kristen just told me. It seems Miss Katie is having a hard time getting to sleep tonight. Kristen was watching the DVR of American Idol. When Adam Lambert (the wildly popular, but really bizarre young man, IMHO) came on, she jerked up straight and clapped through the entire wild performance. She has amazing rhythm and kept time with her body through the whole song. She has even clapping with her hands over her head, as the audience was doing. I wish I could have seen it!
Well, Jess, I did it again - a long, very wordy post. But I have lots of words in me. And they just have to come out!
