Ribbons, streamers, balloons, cake, merriment

Tests all done this morning,and they showed nothing wrong, yay!

So after a few anxious days and a lot of helpful messages from blogistas and others, I plan to loaf on the patio, in the sunshine, have a little glass of wine, do some embroidery, make a pot of special Chinese tea I was given last evening, weird little cakes of tea, and generally breathe again.

Meanwhile, it's like a factory floor around here today -- a major tree came down on my neighbor's house, totally unexpectedly, calm evening, no wind, just last night, and she and her kids escaped by the skin of their teeth as it came down on them.  No people hurt, fences gone, huge chippers at work today hauling away a large section of a fifty foot tree. 

I spent the evening with them helping them breathe again! and their son, who had been playing poker with his buds on the deck, in true Y chromosome fashion, moved the poker game to another friend's house!

Never a dull moment.

Good news indeed! Can anything compare to receiving the "all clear" after such an experience? Yes, a glass of wine, raise it in toast, thank the Powers-That-Be for more time to enjoy life. Jean in Cowtown

p.s. - I have a swarm of honey bees hanging around my 12th floor balcony for the past 20 hours - what do you make of that?

I'm doing a happy dance for you here (which makes it most difficult to type I must say)!! Methinks I might just break out the wine and have a wee nip in your honour too. As for the tree - yikes....that had to have been terribly frightening for the family. So glad that nobody was hurt.

Good news, Liz. Always. Breathe gently now, and slowly.
