Another Milestone

Today turned out to be another good day. I realized it was Windjammer Festival Weekend in Camden, and when I checked, saw that the fireworks were tonight. This morning, I told Lou I was going to go take some photos. He looked at me like I was crazy, probably thinking I’d forget by evening.

I still felt good this evening, so loaded up my tripod and headed into Camden to the marina. Lou stayed home with the pups. He was, I think, nervous about me heading off by myself (not sure if he was nervous that I would or wouldn’t come home … )

Windjammer Fireworks-1Anyway, long story short, it was a fun evening. The fireworks were much better than last year’s July 4th fireworks. Here’s a quick pic. Still have to go through the rest of them. So, getting a photo of the fireworks was not the milestone – me making a plan, actually leaving the house, and returning safely all constitute a milestone and improvement in activity level.

Good Morning!

We continue to enjoy our beautiful Maine weather – hoping it continues!

Just sharing part of our daily routine. Once the first person moves in the morning, Stitch is ready to go. Natasha, on the other hand, would stay in bed until noon. Here is Stitch, captured just before he jumped off the bed in search of his first cookie of the day:


I think the foot is a nice touch 🙂


Another Quick Update

Apparently some folks thought the reason the blog isn't being updated regularly is because we (probably mostly me) weren't feeling well. I'm actually feeling better every day. Lou has been busy working around the house (he always finds something that needs doing). I have been involved with a new video game – which is an indication that I'm feeling better, as before I didn't have much interest in games or even reading a book.

Here's Stitch, bored because no one will play with him:

Thanks for the supportive comments on the bald look. Lou says he does not see any signs of hair – he just isn't looking closely enough!

A Quick Update

Lou said I better put something on here, so here's a quick update. I still have to answer the mystery food question, and I have a pretty rainbow pic, but I need to get the pics off the laptop first.

All is well. I am sitting here in a sweatshirt this evening because it's cold!!! Lou (and the dogs) are in bed already.

Today's topic is one I know y'all want to know about – hair. My hair is finally starting to grow back just a little – I'm sprouting little bits on top. It looks like it's coming in dark on top, gray on the sides – just like before. From what I've read, it may be slow going for another month or so, then it might seem to be growing much faster. It's kind of hard to see in this pic, but I'll post it for comparison purposes in a month or two:


This is the look I'm going for – don't know if I can pull it off without the red lipstick, not goin' there:


I'll probably be lucky to get this much hair in 6 months (better start eating my yogurt):



Bye Bye

First, I will respond to the mystery questions Tiny brought up about our dinner out, but that will be tomorrow. Tonight, I will share the last photos Lou took of Promise Promise, as she (the boat) left Camden Harbor:

We have decided to sell the boat (and get a smaller one), so the broker who is handling this set off for Annapolis yesterday. There is a boat show there where they will try to sell it. If it doesn’t sell this summer, we will just bring it in down to Florida.

A little sad, but we just don’t need the big boat and two houses!
