"Party over here!!!"

Friends are God's way of taking care of us. They are here for us when they could be somewhere else.

Saturday, November 1st was Towanda's 25+4 Birthday....and she spent most of it here with me! Can you ask for a better friend? What a wonderful day we had. Melissa arrived first bringing McDonald's fries (hmmm)....then Towanda.... then Temika. We had such a good time, laughing and joking, I ALMOST forgot I was in the hospital and they would soon all go "out to the real world" and continue the night. However for the time they were there I felt like I was back in 1996 at 2 Chinook in my mothers basement, laughing and giggling like high school girls! I could not of asked for a better Saturday, in or out of the hospital! Thanks Girls!

Dave also stopped by...but when he comes...he brings WORK in a big red staples box!!! Nothing fun at all!!! But it helps to remind me that the world is still going on out there, while I'm in here...there are things to be done and that he still needs me ("TREE")! "Choose a Job you love and you will never work a day in your life"

Later on my Christy & Mum came with a lovely cake for Towanda, we all sang Happy Birthday and enjoyed one of "Nana's" signature cakes (You too can have a Nana's Cake...ask me how!) I had to get "special permission for my extended guest list! I mean really only 4 people at a time plus are we supposed to party?!

The girls went to out to enjoy a birthday dinner with Tow and Mum and Christy stayed. I received my first knitting lesson....knitting...yeah I said it...I'm "fitting" to knit up 2 blankets for our girlies!!!I'll keep you posted on that progress...I feel like a little old lady toting my "knitting bag" around! ha ha! Mum also gave me a mini pedicure!

Earlier that day we had our regular testing and was able to see the babies in 3-D!!! It was so scary and amazing...we were only able to get one picture of one of the babies...the other was looking a little like a jack-o- lantern (I say that with "mother's love"). I am working on figuring out how to trick out my blog with pictures and will try to get a picture up of the 3-D soon!

PHEW what a day... Testing at night lasted a little bit longer than normal...I guess I shouldn't eat hot wings before I go in...the girls were salsa dancing!!! :)

My darling Lily:

I hope that you are well and that you all had a good night.

You are right good friends are worth their weight in gold. I thought about you and talked about you this weekend with my book-club ladies. They all send their love and prayers to you.

It has been 11 years since this wonderful group of reading women (the SWB's) came into my life and quite frankly I don't know how I would have survived life in Vancouver without them.

We too laughed like school girls (we range in age from 31 - 65), as we eat mouth watering shepherd's pie and delicious homemade apple crumble (with apples picked from Ena's garden). We discussed a book called Soucouyant by David Chariandy a black Canadian author. He so beautifully and insightfully chronicled the decline of the main characters mother into senility. It was so well written that even the younger women thought they were losing their minds.

The History Boys was wonderful (the play I saw on Saturday), the lead hottie was gorgeous looking made my heart miss a beat. We were center stage, so he was hard to miss.

We are one day away from D day, and Obama’s grandmother has died. What is the lesson here...I just don’t know. But I am sad for him and I will be glued, with champagne glass ready for this historic Tuesday night.

That Love is all there is, Is all we know of Love (Emily Dickinson)

Much love to you and Ev,
Your lovely Aunt Jen xoxoxoxo
