    hello my dear friend .. as you were sipping your glass of wine I was probably driving home from a very busy day at the other house .. I'm not going to call it Mom's house anymore because it is not ... it is mine ... and I know mom is thrilled ..
    all of her music books .. guitar strings .. tuners .. picks .. I presented to the couple that sang at her service .. she and Del were great friends .. they would pick and strum together .. He and his wife Kelly were honoured to have a complete 3 drawer cabinet full of music books .. a lot written in mom's handwriting since she was very young .. ear to the radio trying to catch the words to the songs .. I also took Mom's electronic harp to them .. since she had arthritis in her hands in later years the harp was easier for her to play .. Dels's wife Kelly's eyes lit up when I opened it .. she said her grandmother had played one .. as Del and I visited in the driveway as I was leaving .. all of a sudden we heard music .. oh yes Kelly and masters the harp .. !! as I drove away .. my heart was full .. a tear rolled down my cheek too .. I knew mom was pleased ..
    yesterday the family that had lost everything in a fire 3 weeks ago came and picked up beds and dressers .. couches and chairs .. kitchen ware .. bedding and towels .. their trailer was full .. they were so thankful .. I was so thankful the items would be used and appreciated .. another win win ..
    as I was ready to leave the next door neighbour Kim came over .. she and her hubby have been a God send in mowing grass and shovelling snow for years .. the property at the house is almost an acre ... the back yard extends behind their home and another .. odd shape but thats how the lot was drawn up many years ago .. a while back I had suggested to my brother that Kim and Jay take over the part of the lot that is behind their house .. they really have an odd lot with very little back yard .. maybe 20 feet and the rest belongs to me .. my brother wouldn't hear of it unless they paid 5K for the land .. well yesterday I told Kim once the title is in my name if she pays the survey and legal costs to change the dimensions of the property the land is theirs .. that truly was the right thing to do as well .. as I got in my truck to drive away .. Kim hollered ... we truly loved your mom Donna .. Yes I said .. and Kim she loved you and Jay too .. this is how mom would want the property to be .. wow .. I drove home in total peace .. feeling as though mom's wishes were being brought to reality .. I have huge plans and goals .. to get the house empty .. ( packed up labeled and stored in the garage then will deliver to an online auction company ) .. have the house empty and clean ready to be shown by Nov 1 .. sold in short order so that the next family that falls in love with this amazing home will have Christmas in it !! .. lofty I know .. but better to shoot for the stars and get half way .. than not shoot at all and get all of it ..
    love ya my friend .. Have an amazing week ..

    hello my dear friend .. the healing has continued and made epic progress .. I'm navigating my chart well .. thank you .. I know you are busy with your garden .. I would bet you are either planning your winter one or setting your sails on a larger project .. its been too long since we had a chat .. today is vegetable day .. carrots .. beets .. potatoes and cucumbers .. seems silly for just the two of us .. but my soul knows everyone of my efforts will be appreciated in the future ...
    I pray your dear pup is on the mend ..
    love ya .. thank you for always being in my corner .. I'm going to bundle you up and take you to the cottage for the weekend .. some fall work to do there .. so pack your swim suit we are leaving tomorrow afternoon .. xo D
