It's up and down. Up and down.
Mike called last night and happened to get her at exactly the right moment. She was just "Mom" again. There's a wild fire in Arizona and she was concerned to make sure that his family (in Tucson) was well. She put those thoughts together herself which clued me into the fact that she was on the way back, if only for a while.
I took the occasion to share a glass of Harvey's Bristol Cream Sherry with her. We clinked glasses, toasted to the future, and had a nice chat. Those moments are becoming increasingly special.
She's adapting (and even liking) her new bed. I love that she can get in and out of this bed on her own as I have it set to a low height. I've been sleeping in the guest room the last two nights to check on her so I'm lacking in my own mental faculties at the moment. Exhausted.
I'm in the process of setting up my own website. It will be DessertShooters.com. I've already registered the name and now just have to figure out how to create the sucker. Should be interesting.
Carina and I spent about 10 minutes yesterday coming up with 2 new dessert shooters. Here's the article about the 4th of July Dessert Shooter - please leave me comments if you read it as that helps the article move up the ranks. Mom was the proud recipient of this particular treasure and ate every single drop. We also made a hot fudge sundae dessert shooter - Carina's first ever hot fudge sundae! She was amazed. That recipe will be coming.
While I'm at it, I updated a few lenses so give them a looksie (and a comment!) too:

The pictures are of my gorgeous very significant other with his new car! Yes, we're "sportin'" again! Other pic is me at Angler's Inn on my 53rd birthday. Sporting a gorgeous new emerald necklace. I'm so very lucky...in so very many ways...
