The much awaited visit of my younger sister Doreen and her children Nicole and Jeff finally arrived today much to my pleasure as I had not seen them for a number of years, except for my nephew who paid a brief visit a few weeks ago.  There was so much to talk about that, after a couple of hours, we went out for lunch.  I was glad that the restaurant was almost deserted because we carried on like people who had not seen each other for decades.  Tomorrow they will visit my older sister in Vancouver, then fly back to Edmonton.  Their visit, although a short one, has done much to cheer me up, or as they say—short but sweet.  I was too exhausted to go to Vespers tonight, but I was informed that James from Washington had arrived, as did Larisa and Ivan from  Victoria so I will have the chance to visit with them tomorrow after the Divine Liturgy.

  1. Hello!
    The crowd has gone. Two add on’s from Chilliwack came out last minute. Mom’ s pleased to have seen so many at one time.
    FYI…….Nicole, Mom and I are all your followers if thats what you call it. We check your daily diary first thing each morning. Yes it did cause a hiccup last week. Good grief hey !?!? Maybe it should be a bi-weekly blog. It would be easier for you.

    I got mom a tablet about a year ago. She pays solitare, checks out CNN, BBC and CBC but otherwise is not too savvy. Craig doesnt own a cell. Today was the first time I “face timed” with Blair. Jeff passed his phone around and we all said hi.

    It is too bad about all this pain the bone cancer is causing. It is mentally exhausting to deal with and getting it the way of sleep and rest which is what you need. Too bad they cant inject anesthesia to block it. You cant exactly cut a hip off either.
    I hope someone can come up with the right cocktail to ease this up.
    You’re in our thoughts.

    1. Dear Cheryl:
      Thank you for such kind words. It has reached a point where I cannot tell if people are friends or just asking to be friends. Anyway, good night and sleep tight, V.V.
