I’m sorry there’s been no blogging for awhile. It’s been a mixed week here.
One high point is the progress on our home remodel project. Bedrooms were all thoroughly painted last week, and new wood laminate flooring is being installed in those rooms at this very minute. At this rate, our nights of sleeping in the living room should be over by this next weekend. We could be done with everything but annoying little odds and ends by Thanksgiving; Christmas in the “new, refreshed” house looks very good.
Another high point was Saturday, when Deb and I drank our way along the Madera Wine Trail with dear friends we seldom get a chance to see. Good wines, good food, good friends — a great weekend.
Unfortunately, all these wonderful things were diminished by news that my brother-in-law has been diagnosed with cancer. No details yet about treatment, but a cloud now hangs over the coming holidays.
Keep us in your thoughts.
