The week that was – This was a really tough week. I said goodbye to my best buddy who has been with me for almost two decades. I forgot how painful loss is. Thanks to all of you who left kind comments on yesterday’s post. I know many of you have lost a pet yourself. Please know that having your support helped.
Timing is everything – On the same day my granddaughters flew in for the weekend. It’s been long-planned but the timing was unfortunate. We are enjoying ourselves although I’m not always in the present. Youth brings an energy that’s healing.
Done, done, done! – Our two-day fence job turned into a six-day job. The contractor wasn’t at fault as they hit stone and bad weather. The intrusion of workers around the house didn’t help make the week any more pleasant although they tried to keep out of the way. It’s all done. If we are lucky it will stop the invasion of the deer.
On a positive note – Starbucks mocha latte is my anesthetic of choice so there were a few days when I had two. (No judgements please!) Since most baristas are college students, this is the time of the year when the employee turnover is great. Yesterday I asked one of the new ones how she was doing. She looked at me with a twinkle in her eye and said, “I’m living the dream.” I laughed all the way home. She’s sassy. I’m gonna love her.
Happy birthday Mom! – Today is my mother’s birthday. She would be well over 100 years old. I’ll toast her later today with her favorite brew and maybe this week I’ll post another Tess Tale. She definitely was one of a kind.
So how was your week? I sure could use a happy story!
