Black-Eyed Susans at the Botanical Gardens
...had another busy day at work. I have been getting lots of bookings for the Fall and believe it or not, the school group bookings for groups coming from Ontario have started coming in for next Spring. School bookings always seem to flood in right when I really don't need the extra work. I just spent two weeks taking over D's work while he was away and now C is on vacation for two weeks, so I have taken over most of her work. I can't wait until everyone is done taking their vacations!
...am happy to report that my father seems to be agreeing to get the help he needs to make sure he recovers completely from his illness. I sent him a message of encouragement last night to help him along and show him that I really believe that he can get back on track, so hopefully if I keep that up it will give him the boost he needs to keep on going in the right direction. He is still in hospital and we don't know how long he will be there, but he is doing much better than he was this time last week.
...was given a peach and a piece of dark chocolate with nuts in it by Father C this afternoon and then my boss, Father M. gave me two medium-sized danishes from the monastery kitchen, one apricot and one strawberry. I told him that I would really have to make sure get my jogging in tomorrow if I ate them both, which I did. I preferred the apricot one.
...am so, so looking forward to my Sweetheart coming home tomorrow. I feel like he's been gone forever! He's making it out of Haiti just in time too, it looks like Tropical Storm Isaac is sent to run right over Haiti Friday into Saturday.
...will try and get a Skywatch post up tomorrow, it's been a while!
...am hoping to have a bit of an easier time getting to sleep tonight. I've understandably been having issues since my father fell ill.
