From here things get better. I finish cleaning the house, and start to relax. I go to the gym. I take Hoku to the groomers and get he all washed up so she smells good, instead of just smelling. I get to spend the evening with one of my oldest and dearest friends and her daughter. We had a blast just visiting, eating and watching Dances With Wolves.

Monday is spent resurrecting the sock whose heel would not turn and the cuff without ribbing all the way around. It’s fixed and almost finished now. Soon I’ll start on the socks for my sister’s birthday present.

It’s a good day and I try to stop and think about the people who have given their lives so we can enjoy this good, good life.
