Merry Meet and Merry Part, and Merry Meet again

Hello? Anyone there?

It is me, Robin Larkspur. Remember?

4 Months since I have been here. Mainly because my laptop died and I had to wait to get a new platform, which I did. A Chrome Book! We shall see how blogging goes!

So several things to catch you up on.

My husband is doing Great!!! He went back to work in July. He has gained back all the weight he lost, his health is excellent and things are going well. He will, of course be having a final surgery in about 8 months to reconnect his small intestine. He currently has an ileostomy, but is managing fairly well. So that is fabulous news.

We are feeling like normal people again (though, I guess to be honest we weren't all that normal before! (snort))

We have gone out to eat (rather a lot now that he is able to eat again),
We went to see the latest Riverdance show called "Emerald"
We've gone shopping and driving and all the kinds of things we haven't done in almost 2 years!!

And we have been spending a lot of our weekends at our beautiful AutumnWood. We bought an old camper to put on the property so we can sleep out there. It is 38 feet long, sleeps 8, has kitchen and bathroom. Pretty old (1987) but excellent condition. We have the water and septic hooked up. It uses propane for cooking and hot water. No electricity yet, because it costs way too much. We will do that next year.
Very cozy eating by lantern light and candles.

Beautiful summer for us.

Hope all of you are doing well! Healthy, happy and enjoying your summer.

Now when I figure out how to load photos onto this contraption, I have some good ones to share.

Getting back to daily blogging will be a challenge after being gone for so long. But I am up for it!!!
And thank Goddess no one hacked into this blog like they did my old PurrrrSnickety blog...remember that?!? eeesh!!
So take care. Love you guys!!!

Hey You! I've been thinking about you a lot this summer. I knew y'all were doing good. :0) Just out having fun and making up for experiences that had been put on hold.
I'm sure your AutumnWood has been a source of comfort and rejuvenation for you both. Looking forward to your pics!
