Citizen of the World strung the first sentence of the first post of each month together in a paragraph. I rather liked the disjointed prose that produced so I am stealing the idea.
As you know, I have been sharing various Pennsylvania German traditions lately. Well, the house is clean. Arrived safe and sound today. It's recipe time again. I don't have any ideas for today that wow me. Tired of all of those surveys made up by high school kids? As we near our Independence Day celebration I have a confession to make. No, I did not fall off the face of the earth. It is 6:21am and Diana and Calypso are already on the bus. Not that long ago I had 32 teaspoons. The circus will be pulling out of town soon. Today is opening day of deer season in Pennsylvania.
Kinda makes your head spin doesn't it?
Not to make your heads spin any worse but....The new year has started off rather dramatically. As you know, my dear friend had her baby. That's the really happy news. I was hoping to go visit her and meet Sweet Pea on Sunday. Unfortunately, I spent the afternoon in another hospital with different friends. On New Year's night the couple's 11 yer old daughter found her mother unresponsive. When she tired to rouse her mother the woman began vomiting and convulsing. As it turns out a brain aneurysm had just burst. In addition to the severity of the aneurysm, she has suffered severe trauma to her heart and has pneumonia due to aspirating vomit. She is in extremely critical condition. The couple also has 15 year old twins. Prayers, good thoughts, positive energy....whatever you'd like to direct toward this woman and her family would be truly appreciated. No matter the outcome, things are going to be very difficult.
