I’m much better now, thank you

Of course that may be due to the fact that I was brought up to clean my plate and not spend too much time wallowing around in sorrow- after all, there’s work to be done! What work? I’m not getting much done.

Still, I’m feeling better now.

Of course that might be due to the fact that one of my dear blog neighbors sent me two fine bottles of
Toasted Head Chardonnay to make up for that crock of an airline that ran out when I needed it most.
Wine- now that’s my idea of a good condolence. And a great friend. I think it would go nicely with some Indian curry so I’ll figure out how to get some of that over here, say Monday or Tuesday evening next week, after I’ve been up to Lost Loon Lodge for a few days. Seriously now, there are certain times when you should exploit all offers of kindness and get all the pleasure you can from them. I’m going for it. We’ve got some nice flowers around here, too. And cards and letters. And about 300 of the nicest comments and e-mails and web posts from people who care about me and my family.

So, I’m feeling much better now, thank you.

Curiously, another thing that helped was this. I was over at Round Rock Journal and found a link to a site that makes you your own personal word cloud. You just type in your blog URL and viola! It’s the essence of you! Or it’s the essence of what you put out there for the world to see. It’s nice if there’s a relationship. I notice mine doesn’t have sobbing, wailing, gnashing of teeth or snot trails on it so apparently I haven’t dwelled on this aspect of my life too much. Of course, you have probably been all over this site already while I was busy moping around airports and hospitals, but I liked it. My word cloud made me feel better. What does yours say about you?





So, again, I’m feeling much better now and I think I’ll come visit you for a change. Thank you.

  1. Yours is good. Mine inexplicably has several words never uttered on my blog.

  2. I just made mine, and guess whose name is on there in a really big font? YOURS.

    But how do I get the word cloud onto my blog?

  3. This is so neat.. I am going to give it a go. I love word clouds and would love to have one that links to my various posts.

  4. Glad to read you in such good spirits. Will do my word cloud now.

    Love to you!

  5. Your word cloud is beautiful. A fine poem and essence of you. Lovely.

  6. hmmm Indian curry? Methinks that might have been to me 😉 Which is fine. You just need to tell me, if you want chicken curry or shrimp curry or even an egg curry and if you want a malai curry, a plain curry or what not. Oh and I’ll even make some Matar Paneer or Saag Paneer (I make a mean saag paneer according to my bro)….
    Just let me know. You don’t want that nasty restaurant stuff do you? You know it would be much better coming from my loving hands 😉 And then I could finally meet McCloud.

  7. That is good news, indeed.

  8. I went and made a word cloud. It has your name in it, so I’m leaving it. thanks, kid.

  9. So very glad you are feeling better, but this doesn’t mean we will stop thinking of you, wishing you sunny days and beautiful flowers or stop praying for Bud and the rest of your family.
    Now, I am covered in FASFA!!!!!!!!!!!AAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHH!!

  10. Your word cloud reads like poetry to me. The only thing that I’ve read better today is this:

    “So, I’m feeling much better now, thank you.”

    That was the best news yet.

    Take care of you.

  11. Nice cloud. Has a real silver lining to it, dontcha think?

  12. Vick, I’m so sorry about all that has transpired over the past couple of weeks. Hugs and smooches to you and to Bud and to all of the family. Lovely little cloud.

  13. Amazon does this will novels as well, which is kind of fun. Unless it’s your own novel.

    Happy day, V. Thinking of you and drinking companionable wine.

  14. It was a spectacular day here in Florida…clear deep blue skies, a warm sun, and a cooling breeze without a hint of humidity or bug. I didn’t think this day could get any better, but it just did. Glad you’re on the mend.
    Take care of that family of yours.

  15. Lovely word cloud! Meeta has made my mouth water! Keeping you in my prayers!

    Go, little book, and wish to all
    Flowers in the garden, meat in the hall,
    A bin of wine, a spice of wit,
    A house with lawns enclosing it,
    A living river by the door,
    A nightingale in the sycamore!
    Robert Louis Stevenson

  16. I love the word cloud; I have done one and need to post it sometime, when I’m not busy spending more money than I have! (ack) I’m glad that you’re feeling better and healing. It is a day to day,up and down process as I know from experience.

  17. I’m glad that you’re feeling better today.

    I’ve made several word clouds from my blog. It’s interesting to see how some words grow and shrink, depending on my focus at different times.

  18. I’m glad to have found you – now if I can just remember how I did… Anyway. I am glad to hear you are doing better. Today is the anniversary of my dad dying 21 years ago so I can feel your pain.

    Take care of yourself and surround yourself with those who love and adore you.

  19. I’m so glad you’re feeling better. I should hope though that it is ok for you to go back and forth for quite a while if you should need to. But right now it is almost spring, and certainly its at least St. Paddy’s Day. You’re just in time. (In Maine however it is only mud season now.)

  20. It is very good news to know that you are feeling better. Of course, you will think about Jan often for many years, and I hope the memories can be good ones.

  21. You should try Jamaican Curry –oh so spicy and just as good as indian I think. I love mine on mutton or shrimp. Heck both.

    I’m so glad you’re feeling better, Vicki. You know that you’ve got all of us holding you. 🙂

    Your word cloud is definitely better than mine (which took a bit too much notice of the things on my sidebar).

    I’d like to give you a poen myself, in the style of bonnie, but I only have lines about the definition of love, coy mistresses and being slaves to love circling my head at present.

  22. Damn good, my dear, it’s so nice to know you’re doing better…

    A bit of beer here to toast you & your wine.

  23. Hi Vicki

    I’m so glad you’re feeling better. Just checking in to make sure.

  24. You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

  25. Sorry to hear about your mom.
    Days come minutes at a time.

  26. So glad you’re feeling better… the grieving process is a process, so taking it a day at a time is a good idea.
