#JusJoJan ~ 1/10/19 – Sunrise

Toortsie’s prompted us with sunrise.  Great choice for the prompt.  Sunrise is my favorite part of the day. Look here to see her latest post  

Hi Toortsie! 

These past two mornings we have had beautiful deep red sunrises.  Though red sky at night is a sailor’s delight, these red skies in the morning were fantastic.  I almost stopped the car yesterday so I could take a picture but decided I was in too much of a hurry because I needed to stop for petrol as well.  Uh ya, I said petrol.  What do you call it?  I call it gas unless I am being all hoity-toity.  Shame on me.  I should have taken the picture.

Today I was up at the b’crack of dawn well before sunrise in order to call into a meeting on the east coast.  I drove into the office at sunrise.  How’s that for early??!?  I worked a full day because tomorrow I am taking another ME day.  That way I feel semi-caught up and not guilty about taking off.

I plan to attend a retirement party aka mini-reunion.  And then come home in time to see Lulu off to school.  I miss her already.  After that I will drown my sorrows in a book.  I still have three in the hopper just waiting to be read.

So, … the Medical Meat Market is not New

This post is 3 years old.  Moved over from FB.

Before I could hit post on the all clear, biopsy site shows no residual melanocytic lesion 👌 a sweet lady approached me as I sat in the lobby of the Nix Hospital. It was all over by 11:25 before my actual appointment. Some times it pays to be early.

“I don’t mean to startle you but you look like someone I know … is that you Jill?”

I almost dropped the phone when I looked up and saw DH.

“Of course I know you D, I’d recognize you anywhere”

You see we are 29 and holding :).  In her eyes, it was easy to see the girls we once were.

Hugs are healing and so is my good fortune to catch up with a dear friend. Small world that her son is a junior at TAMCC. Lulu will be there next year. So much has happened but we tried to get through it all. Makes me realize I should probably go off the grid more often. Face to face beats FB any day.

Feeling thankful and blessed.

We’re going to Downtown Tuesday … the new Friday.  Me and my baby girl.


And now folks, LuLu is the junior.  Time is doing that funny thing again.

As always, more to come.
