Rockin' Chair Writer's Club

What's really on your mind?

I'm happy the sunsets are no longer filtered by smoke, like in this picture. The smoke has stolen my smell and taste, so back to an ENT doctor.

Excited that I'm allowed back in the pool and feeling stronger, wanting to get out more.

Pride that Jolene has raised three happy boys while getting her degree and has just graduated.

Little E, our grandson just turned 7.

Thrilled our grandson's will be here for Christmas from WA. :)

Wishing I could comfort and pamper:
Linda, who is being given a nasty drug that is making her very ill to try and cure CFS.
Pam, who's ALS is being hampered by the humidity in Vermont, affecting her lungs.
Guatami, who is down.
Robbin, who is bravely fighting cancer while grieving the loss of her son.
Gemma, who is caring for her husband the best she can.
Brian, who suffers from CFS.
TJ, who is recovering from surgery.
Bella & Eileen, who both have chronic, debilitating headaches.
Sadly there are many others saddened by loss this summer. Thinking of you all!

Wishing I could blink and meet my blog buddies in San Francisco (there is a convention thingy). It's so close and yet so far.

Our new Wii is allowing me to golf again and play tennis in my living room. Dave holds my hips and I swing away. What a gift technology is to the disabled, not to mention exercise. A video will be coming soon.

Dave and I will be planting more flowers this weekend and found a movement sprinkler to keep the deer from trampling our plants.. They hang out at our waterfall pond. More blooms and color always makes us happy.

Thankful that I'm happy, safe and relatively healthy.

Wii is lots of fun, isn't it? I look forward to the video! I'm incredibly bad at Wii bowling, but it's fun.

just click on the statcounter on my blog on the right hand side, its completely free if you want to sign up. Forgetfulone (di) told me about it. I absolutely love it. I know which posts are getting hit most often and I can up my blog traffic according to those posts. Humble opinion is just fun but I might stick this counter on my special needs blog for business. :D

Eileen said...

Thanks my friend! You are such a good person.

I'm glad the smoke is gone, hope it stays that way.

I love that you are getting such enjoyment out of your Wii. Sounds like fun.

By the way, I love Eva Cassiday. Such a wonderful singer.


Chris said...

I love smoke in my sunrises and sunsets, but it is coming from my smokers:) I guess that just shows it's all cause and effect, and perspective!


bella said...

just thank-you.
This meant so much.
I feel well held by you and I am grateful.

tinker said...

Thank you for reminding me, once again Tammy, how much I have to be grateful for - and I am so thankful. Wishing for better times for these and many others, right now...
I'm glad your skies are clearing up - and those wii gizmos sure sound like fun - enjoy! xOx

Inland Empire Girl said...

I heard the smoke was horrible in your area. We had a friend in Nevada visiting and couldn't even talk. Our smoke didn't last as long here. I am glad a Wii is working for you!
