Day 120

It's day 120! That doesn't seem very long somehow. But it is! Yesterday my friend Shelby took me for a breathing treatment- the goal of it is to prevent infections (viral and/or fungal). Today should be less eventful- just house tasks and banking. My friend Jody is coming to help me. This sunday my friend Mari is coming from Spain. Can you believe that? That's a long way to come to help a friend. She's Silvia's sister and we have been friends for 29 years. We had babies at the same time and her mothering skills helped me with my boys many, many times. It will be good to spend time with her. One time, about 10 years ago, I drove her and one of her sons from cville to North Carolina to stay at Silvia's NC home. Lyle needed to go to Tennessee to visit a sustainable farm so it was sort of on the way. We had to take many small back roads and ended up a little lost. We asked these older southern gentleman directions and their accent was so dense none of us could understand a word they were saying. One man was saying we had to go to "Mouth of Martha" (I think) and we couldn't figure out what he meant. We kept repeating it (or variations of it) and he kept repeating it back. We finally left with a vague idea of how to proceed and couldn't stop laughing over the language problem. When I think of Mari I remember "Mouth of Martha" where ever the heck that is, and how much fun she is to be with.
I'm working very slowly on my taxes- I need to get a move on- tempus is totally fugiting! (forgive the spelling). I'm still on the med "taper" as they call it. So far so good- no side effects no drama. My hair is growing in a little. Very Sinaid O'Connor, sort of.
Have a lovely weekend
