Other house stuff: We still have a pile of work to do in the basement to get things back in order, but yesterday we did some other rearranging in the living room. We decided we will bring the TV upstairs and put it in the entertainment unit (from Jenn! THANKS!) :-) Then we''ll move the computer & filing cabinet out of our bedroom to my "Scrapping Cave" where the TV was. It will be nice to have some room in the bedroom - we're pretty cramped in there right now.
Dad update: he's holding steady. He's not likely to improve, but he's not in crisis-mode like he was a few weeks ago. Dr. Donna Ward thinks that we have a few more months together - perhaps even the rest of this year.
Our wonderful neighbourhood: The other day Tim and Ben were walking around the block when a neighbour lady ran back into her house and came out with a cute little stuffed horse for Ben. What a sweet thing to do! Ben carried it tightly under his arm for the walk and the rest of the evening - he even had to take it to bed that night.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
