Wow, it has been over a Year!!!

I am sure no one is still reading my little blog, but if so, I cannot believe it has been 2 days over one year since I posted on here.  Time has gone by so quickly. 

On the 24th I will celebrate the 2 year anniversary of my little store.  Business has continued to pick up and sales have been good enough that as of January 1st I have been getting a paycheck.  I just signed another 2 year lease on the building, after that who knows what I will do.  I am getting old, but I love working, so I just may keep going and going (kinda like the Energizer Bunny).

On April 29th I lost a friend of 30 years to the big 'C'.  Over Thanksgiving she got pneumonia and was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer.  She was a non-smoker so it took us all by surprise.  She was quickly told that the cancer had moved into her hip and pelvic bones, but she started a new treatment and seemed to be holding her own.  On April 15th she sent me a very positive email to let me know that the scans showed the tumors were not growng, and she was feeling great.  Her local friends (she lived in California) had thrown her a Birthday party on the 13th with live music.  She said she had a great time and even did some singing.  I was so happy to hear that news.  A few days later I got news that they had found some spots in her brain, then she had some seizures and on the 29th she was gone.  Such sadness! 

Since I last updated on this blog I have been blessed with another grandson.  He was born on October 7th and is such a cutie.  Here is a picture of the 3 littlest grandchildren taken in the library.  They love the library. 

J is 2 years 6 month, C is 3 years 10 month, and R is 7 months.  I do not get to see them as often as I would like, but soon I am going to visit them and I cannot wait. 

My other 3 grandchildren are doing well.  Big S is 22, Little S is 14 and J is 10.  Cannot believe how fast the time is going.  They keep me smiling. 

I hope if anyone is still reading this, that you are well and happy and enjoying life.
