Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers and emails!
Dad is doing better. He is still in the ICU, but they have used the phrase, “Out of the woods,” so that is a very good thing. In fact, they brought him a television into the ICU so he could watch the hockey game tonight. I don’t remember my Dad watching hockey ever in his life before, so that is an interesting turn of events – lol. I spoke to him briefly this afternoon and he seemed in good spirits. My Mom sounds so much better now too. I wish I could squeeze them both with all of my heart, but sending them love is all I can do right now. It’s such a cliche, but love is really all that matters.
Hold your loved ones tight tonight for me.
I’ve not been here for a little while for several reasons, but now my energy is more scattered than before. My Dad had open heart surgery on Wednesday and he is still in the ICU because he has developed complications. My Mom is with him and I am too many miles away to help. If you can spare a good wish or a prayer or two I’d really appreciate it.
Most of the time I can cope with living an ex-pat life. Now is not one of those times.

My robe smells of jasmine this morning, but I have no idea why.
I am drinking Tazo Green Ginger tea out of my favorite puffin mug.
I am homesick for myself, but I think I am slowly returning to normal.
It’s quiet here. I can hear two different clocks ticking. It’s funny how they are ticking all of the time, but I don’t usually hear them.
I sometimes don’t post because I haven’t got a picture to go with it. I think I will take some pictures today.
There are purple crocuses blooming in a fairy ring around the magnolia in our garden. They make me think of magic and how fast time is flying. It’s nearly spring again.
Time for more tea. How are you?
