This one is getting so full and lush!
New growth on Mrs. B's frilly plant, yay!
This guy is showing off! I wasn't expecting a succulent vine...maybe it would like a little bamboo skewer to wrap around? Or should I cut off part of the top and plant it in the same pot? Here's where my lack of gardening skill is showing...
Paco has been sticking by me even more than usual, for reasons that I'll write about next. He's keeps coming to check on me and will put his paw on my lap, or nudge his head under my hand - dog therapy, whether I want it or not. I've been giving him extra cookies for being such a good dog:
He's very gentle when he takes the cookie - then he runs away with it.
This was a rough week. I've grieved for a friend who lost her son to pancreatic cancer on Monday, and in doing so, it brought back what we experienced 10 years ago when we lost my Grandmother to the same stupid stupid STUPID disease. Their timeline was too similar as well - both diagnosed in August and dead in October. No nice euphemisms for death here...this is what happens, and it sucks so bad. I can't believe that pancreatic cancer is just as devastating now as it was 10 years ago. Nothing has improved in treatment. You get it and you freaking die. And we miss our loved ones. I've had 10 years and it still hits me hard; to know that my friend is at the start of this terrible process makes my heart hurt for her.
And for my Grandmother, Maggie:
You are missed so much.
