This posting is delayed in part due to our being without the Internet for most of this week. We now have a working (!) outside antenna on the roof for our router and are back in business. Roger just about broke his crown getting down from the roof where he placed it but that’s another story.
That’s not the only SNAFU this month. Our oven broke. More specifically, our oven door broke off. Right before Thanksgiving. With a turkey already ordered from the Co-op. And since we didn’t pick it up right away, it came defrosted. Roger managed to cook a 20 lb. turkey on the propane grill. But we had already been invited to my sister’s so now we have a freezer full of turkey.
But I digress. I should start at the beginning of the month. Just before my last treatment I went to a retreat for San Juan County Textile Guild in Bellingham. I had a very nice time and took a couple great workshops: origami lights on a branch and bio-dyeing scarves. Here is the light branch .
I stayed with a friend on the mainland who took me to my last treatment and then to lunch at the Farmhouse Restaurant. Now I’m done and recovering. (applause)
Since then I’ve been trying to make up for a lost month but am hampered by being very tired. The third week after my treatment seemed to be the worst for me. Roger and I had gone to Seattle for a whirlwind weekend and were followed back to the island by Bjorn and family for a fun couple days followed immediately by Thanksgiving. This was the week I needed several naps a day.
Roger’s birthday celebration was low-key. Dinner out with friends. Should be a poem in there somewhere: Roger and Anita went to Mi Casita turning 63 gotta be low-key (something like that)
So, yes, in-between turkey troubles, oven failures, and connectivity issues, it has been restful here at Thornbush.
just what I needed.
