First off, I must apologize because I kinda need to blow off this blog post.

See, I just learned a few hours ago that my Mom’s heart is acting up again so she’s seeing the doctor first thing in the morning and will likely have to be on blood thinner again at the very least.  I’ve decided she’s going to be okay. In fact more than okay – she’ll be spectacularly healthy and well again.

But in the meantime, my concentration is shot.

So if you don’t mind, for the time being I need to think only happy thoughts and send out happy vibes.  So here are some pieces of good news, personal and otherwise.

  • My polishing of Charity MacCay is going well. In fact I spent too much time on it today and really should get out more and enjoy the summer.
  • A friend from work was part of the orchestra for a performance of Bach’s Passion of St. Matthew. I was in the audience on Saturday night and can report it was glorious (all three hours of it).
  • I got an oil change in my car and for once the mechanic didn’t find anything else wrong with my car.
  • My left hip and leg are almost completely back to normal (it’s taken SO LONG!) and now on most days I have no pain and am working out and stretching pretty freely. I’m getting back to being Layla.
  • I finished Hart’s (Confessions of a Watery Tart) wonderful new cozy mystery The Begonia Bride (published under her nom de plume Alyse Carlson) and can honestly report that it’s a delightful read.
  • The state utility company has announced that within a couple years Colorado will get 30% of its energy from wind power. It’s also building a new wind power plant not to be green but because this plant will generate energy that’s MUCH cheaper than the new natural gas plant.
  • The Black Forest area near Colorado Springs has been soaked with rain, and thanks to it and the fantastic firefighters the horribly destructive fires are pretty much out.

That’s about it for tonight. Do you have any good news of your own to share? Happy thoughts? Happy feet/feat?
