Merry Meet and Merry Part, and Merry Meet again

Wednesday, October 23, 2013


Rain is falling tonight, dark and breezy outside. Chilly. But my shivers are more of excitement for Thursday's happenings. The finalization of the purchase of our land!!

Today was special too, my brother's birthday. We took him to his favorite restaurant tonight for dinner. He is doing okay; if you may recall two years ago he suffered two strokes less than a week apart, and has been dealing with the aftereffects, as well as severe kidney disease and heart disease. Not an easy road, but we are all doing the best we can.

And then a phone call from our darling daughter. She received a promotion today, and was calling to share her news. She is getting an office (with 4 walls,ceiling and a door); she has been in a cubicle for a long time. We are proud and happy for her. She works very hard and has earned this promotion!

Once we actually have the deed to the land in our hands, I am going to announce the name we have chosen for the property. It was a big job...we went over at least 30 different names (there were some hurt feelings, mostly on my part, as some names were rejected). But we all love the one we have selected. It is perfect!!

Bright Blessings from Robin.

Happy Birthday to your brother. Keep on keeping on, as they say. And congrats to your daughter. It is always a wonderful thing to watch grown children do well in life. Very nice.
I can hardly wait to hear the name you have chosen for your little bit of paradise. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow as you sign the papers. xoxo Oma Linda

Wednesday was a good day!!! Congrats to your daughter on the promotion. :0) Well deserved and well earned!
Oh Wow! You have a name for your already? We are still trying to come up with one for our place. Not sure where to begin....think I need to meditate on it.

Happy Birthday to Your brother and congratulations to Your daughter!

You might actually signing the deed right now while I'm writing this :-)

I'm not sure if we can name our properties at all over here. It isn't unusual that they change it some times too, this cottage has had several names and they usually change it because the postal service wants it for some reason no one can understand :-)

Have a great day!
