Nothing Much

Here's some quick glipses of what I've done in the past week or so...

Watched The Queen: you should see this movie. I can't put it into words, but it was an excellent movie. You really felt like you understood the Queen of England, or at least that is how I felt. However, I wouldn't recommend it for anybody who can't normally sit through a documentary, but I feel that this applies to very few of my friends and family.

Been to the Library, and really you should go to your own as well. I don't always get the books I am interested in, but it's fun to look. I'm not as adept as, say, the LoWriter on reserving my books.

Purchased my carefully chosen 'mom's day' gift. She better like it!

My Great Aunt Jean died this morning, she passed away peacefully at 89 from metastisised colon cancer (which metastisised because she refused treatment). We won't be be having a service or anything, but we will miss her even though she is in a much better place!

Plans for the coming week: next weekend I am going down to Portland and hopefully stopping by Powells. I have some book to sell and, as always, I have books to buy. And, of course, there is Mother's Day and I have plans to go/take out my mom and g'ma - and provide them with some much needed gifts.

Have a wonderful week!

Well T,
Aunt Jean (to me) was ONLY 87. :) Getting close to 88. :) There's a new Michelle Tumes tune that keeps going thru my heart - "You're home for the gypsy heart" - that's heaven for Jean. She was a gypsy - always looking for another place to land. The sad thing was she had to stay at the nursing home. She was a great lady and always alot of fun - great sense of humor. She used to say, "Goodnight Irene" and I would repeat that back to her. She always refused any operations for the colon cancer. I believe she did get one operation about 4 years ago - but the recovery was so rough that she refused all other treatment - maybe they just told her she was too far gone then? She only had a little pain in her legs and feet - none otherwise - and some continence problems.

Anyone who would like to see her and her obit - go to my blog - listed here on T's page and you can see a pic of her and everything. :)

I'll love whatever you get me. So you want to take G'ma out too? I'll have to convince her of that or we'll have to just go to her apartment?

Hope you have a good week at work.

Hey T,
Great Sunday out! Loved the birdie gift - listened to almost ALL the birds last nite. ;)

Grandma had a good time.

Loved the little bees and ladybugs too.

I'm sorry to hear about your great-aunt. Take care, 10.
