Valentine 💝

My sister

As many of you know, my sister Ginny struggles with dementia. Just before lockdown, one year ago, she moved to a memory care home blocks from the house she shares with her husband. I last saw Ginny in November 2019.

My dear brother-in-law is a terrific support and sends photos of his visits. I wanted to share this one and wish all of you a peaceful, loving Valentine’s Day.

Dylan the Tabby

Dear WordPress furriends, we wanted you to know that our beloved Tabby cat, Dylan, died suddenly yesterday. It was discovered that a sudden onset of lethargy and change in his breathing was the result of cardiomyopathy. We will share more about this at another time. His brother, Bagheera, is searching for him and we are loving him up. The photos below are the last I took of my sweet Dylan. We love you Dylan.

Fall-OUT!

Ugh. An October snow has officially ended Fall. (Before the final garden chores could be accomplished!)

The bright spot was a quick visit from Cousin Bob’s daughter, Lisa, en route to Portland, OR. We were able to score a night at the historic, floating B&B, The Covington Inn in downtown St. Paul, MN- still pretty in the snow!

Before: a walk just a week or so ago

Now: Welcome Lisa!
