Need Prayers & Positive Thoughts

I'm not going to go into any real detail right now, right here. Suffice it to say, there is a possible health problem hovering in the wings that has only come into focus in the last couple of days. I'm not sure of ANYTHING yet, except that it is greatly unnerving me. I WILL give more detail if and when the time comes.. I just.... I need prayers & positive thoughts for my physical & emotional well-being right now. This weekend, into next week. Prayers, positive thoughts, lit candles, sacrificed chickens (Robin! *wink*)..... Or, just keep me in your thoughts & heart.

Thank you.


Sian: by other standards, it's not terribly warm here. Today (as I'm writing this, at 2 pm, Alaska time) it is about 52 degrees F. outside. (According to the thermometer outside my kitchen window.) As I said, not terribly warm by the standards of other places & other people, but we're grateful. And it's sunny, and the snow is melting quickly..... *shrug* A barbeque on the back deck sounds great. We won't be eatting out there, but we'll probably stand around out there enjoying the late afternoon & evening sun while Scott (and likely his dad) barbeque the chicken. Oh, and his mom's coming over as well which means that I've got to get my kitchen cleaned up. Joy. *rolling eyes*


Tay came home from hockey again last night complaining of an upset stomach. She didn't vomit last night, but I think it was more through sheer force of will. She didn't want to miss todays post-testing celebretory movie & "pyjama day", and the pizza party that her class will have for lunch to reward them for raising the most money for "Pennies for Patients". *grin* She'll hold back "sick" for pizza!!! *wink* Actually, she did look drastically better this morning. Bounced in to wake me up (because I overslept my alarm again) with a smile on her face and an annoyingly bright "Aloha Lilo!" *rolling eyes* I don't know where she gets it. It sure isn't from me!!!!


Whim, actually I'm enjoying my morning alone. It feels great to occasionally have the excuse to not go anywhere or do anything more major than walking to the mailboxes at the end of the road. I haven't done much of anything today except have coffee with Dad (he came over with more "stuff" from his house) and watch "Serenity" finally. I did a couple of rows on an afghan, but I stopped when I realized I need to measure it to see if it's proportionally big enough to start putting the edging around it. *grin* I need to make some banana bread. I've got a great many bananas that are far too ripe to do anything else with. They've been languishing in my freezer for some weeks (months, in a couple of cases) now, and really must be turned into delicious banana bread finally. So, I am enjoying my day "stuck" at home. It's peaceful.

Speaking of "Serenity".... Ok. This is my shout out. If you HAVE NOT watched "Firefly" and "Serenity" yet.... DO! "Firefly" was a fantastic series that didn't run NEARLY as long as it should have, and yet the character developement is phenomenal, the plots rock, and the premise totally works! "Serenity" I am a little bit grumpy with, mainly because good characters die. I'm sorry, I know that in ALL battles between good & evil (even the fictional movie or book type), somebody must perish, but that doesn't mean I enjoy it when it happens. Still, FANTASTIC. DO watch!


I think that pretty well covers it for today. Thanks again for any positive vibes/thinking/prayers/sacrificed chickens you wanna send my way. (Well, REALLY, don't send the sacrificed chicken itself my way. Keep it to barbeque yourself. Just send me the positive vibes you feel are generated by sacrificing the chicken for my sake. *wink*)

Have a Blessed Day!

I'm glad Tey seems to be feeling better. Give her a few years and she probably wont be so bouncy in the mornings, lol!

Battlestar Galatica was awesome tonight.

The best Sci-Fi series of all time...

Robin said...

Doing my level best to send you good vibes! Hope everything is okay!
