Thank you to all the service men and women of our great country.  My favorite is my Dad, though.  He was a career military man, an Air Force fighter pilot. He then retired and enjoyed being a corporate pilot. He still works for the same company, in fact, but just a few hours a week.

We have had a rough week.  I don’t know if you could tell that I was phoning in my posts last week. They were short and not well edited. This week if I go quiet, it is because he is in the hospital with a new cancer diagnosis as we are await a treatment plan. I may feel that I need this creative outlet, though – we will see.

 I really don’t want to show outfits for wearing to the hospital and my clothes are the last thing on my mind.  I haven’t had any cocktails and I haven’t cooked.  I have kept the coffee coming, though.  

I really appreciate you being my faithful readers.

  1. Prayers for your Dad and for all of the family. We’ve had more than our share of cancer and it SUCKS. Hang in there and be extra kind to yourself.


    1. Thank you Renee. I hate cancer. I’m sorry that we have this in common but your comment means a lot. I hope you continue reading my blog!
      Amy 🙂


  2. Amy, Please thank your Dad for his service to our country. My father and brothers as well as my husband, his father and brother were in the military.
    I’m sure the next days will be hectic so hopefully you can get a few moments peace on your patio. Sending prayers and good thoughts to you and your family.


  3. Amy I am so sorry. I will be praying for you and your family, as well as his doctors and nurses. Sending prayers your way my friend!


  4. I’m so sorry Amy. Ugh. And blogging is something that can be cathartic but can also seem like a false representation and the last thing you want to do in those situations.


  5. Hi Amy, here comes love and warm thoughts all the way from Sweden! I’m so happy to have found your blog, since I’m also a teacher I really appreciate it. Hang in there!


      1. I teach Swedish and English for kids between 13-15. Yes, Sweden is beautiful and great in many ways – but we love Florida! That’s where we spend our summer vacations!


      2. No, we actually learn British English over here! I started coming to the US quite recently, my mother in law has a nice apartment in Florida. But I guess Florida isn’t really the “true picture” of America? (even though most people seem to origin from NY :-))
