Jerry and I went to The Woodlands today. Rosanna Rushbrook’s sweet granddaughter is not quite two weeks old and thriving and growing. Lucky me…I got to hold this little miracle, to read a story to Katie and to visit with Rosanna. Center School people really ARE family no matter how far away everyone is. Funny…Rosanna and I both graduated from high school in Pittsfield, Massachusetts in 1965, me from St. Joe’s; Rosanna from Pittsfield High. We never knew each other then but we ended up at Center School for many years and then both moved to Florida…Rosanna and Terry on the east coast, Jerry and I on the west coast. We don’t see each other very often. How funny that we ended up in Texas at the same time. How wonderful.
All’s well here…gorgeous day. Going to be 80, I hear. Need to get out for a walk. My only complaint is that I’m having major problems swallowing. Haven’t really had anything to eat except Ensure since Thanksgiving. I was doing so well but it’s been pretty awful the last few days. Trying applesauce and ginger cookies (I know,not the healthiest) for lunch. So far, so good. Thank God for Ensure, though…nothing else, even yogurt, really goes down easily.
Reading Five Days at Memorial…about a hospital in New Orleans that made some scary decisions during Katrina. Don’t ask me why I’m reading a hospital book but it’s good. I do like it.
