The last few weeks have been ghastly in some ways and great in other ways! I had been gnawing not only on my fingernails, but also on my actual fingers! I was extremely anxious about Lorne having surgery to remove not only the two cancerous spots on his liver, but also 2/3 of the liver. I'd heard it was a very painful surgery to recover from and everyone knows that men are not the best patients.
At the same time, my younger daughter was getting married! After being engaged for over a year, everything had been planned - the venue paid for; the dress was made, altered, paid for and hanging in one of my spare closets; the crafts were completed; the guests had all RSVPed; and I had the flowers growing in my garden!
One very grave situation and one very sentimental situation - both not boding well for calm, cool, collected me. Hah! Tranquilizer, anyone? One night as I was trying to get to sleep, I finally resorted to an Atavan because I couldn't decide if I should laugh or cry. Much as I was thrilled for my daughter, I was equally worried about Lorne and disappointed that he couldn't share the big day with us all.
Anyway, thought I'd type this up early just in case any emergencies arise this coming week. In brief, Lorne is home, but not a happy camper and daughter is in Whistler on her honeymoon. So I'm still a bit concerned about Lorne's health and getting my car back in one piece on Friday. I put together a slideshow showing the gazebo and gardens at Kirkland House where daughter got married and then added some more shots of various gardens, gates and gazebos I've photographed in the past. Music is "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" from The Lion King. Hope you enjoy it.
