My absence .............

I have been absent from blogland for the last week or so. My Dad became ill and I had to have the ambulance take him to the hospital. Between visiting him every day, taking care of his cat and things at his house, and keeping things going here, I haven't had time to post or to visit blogs. I got him back home last night. He is better, but still weak. We tried to get him out of bed this afternoon, but he was unable to stand. I'm hoping he'll get stronger now that he is at home.

We're having some wonderful weather. The nights are cool and perfect for sleeping with the windows open. The days have been in the upper 80s and lower 90s - perfect late summer temperatures. I would like to keep this weather year round. Maggie May and Mazie Grace have been enjoying the cooler evenings by chasing each other all over the back yard. I wish I had their energy!

I'm off to check your blogs.

Wondered where you've been. So sorry your dad has been ill -- must have been frightening for you both. I hope he recovers quickly.

Regaled my mom with stories about Mazie Grace (and Maggie May) today.
