A Sunny Afternoon ...

... is good for chilling on the back porch

So why would you care
To get out of this place
You and me and all our friends
Such a happy human race
Eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow we die

  1. Thanks for the encouraging words - and i love the pic - i think i may sit outside tonight and have some dinner. I'm on my way home - yay!

  2. one of my favorite activities....porch settin'! and one of my favorite bands, too! a great way to speand dinner time!

  3. I'm dying for new news on the boy

  4. Me too, Blue Mountain! And I couldn't agree more. Fall weather has definitely arrived here, so I'm glad the sis & I took advantage of the sunny evening while we could.

    It's coming soon, Ilse, I promise!! I'm just working on a post. Being an anal English major, I have to make sure everything is perfect (you know, all the i's dotted, all the t's crossed). :o)

  5. Just want to make sure you aren't freaking out - oh come on - it doesn't need to be perfect - I want all the dirt :)

  6. Speaking of eat drink and be merry, I was wondering how you are feeling and hoping that you are more encouraged about your health now that some months of a new plan are behind you.

  7. Thank you, LL. I am feeling fantastic!

    I should actually post about this -- if pressed to assign a number, I feel about 85% better with the altered diet. I'm seeing a new GI specialist who is far more thorough and takes me more seriously as a patient. We shall see what the tests reveal.

    But yes ... a healthy Kirsten is enjoying life far more than the one who was so ill & fatigued!

  8. Oh, very good to hear. Blessed indeed.
