Good morning, cold morning. I think today is going to be a great day. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, but I know I need to do laundry and I'd like to do something fun with the kids. Maybe go to the park. I also haven't ridden my horse in a long time, couple weeks at least, so I might try to fit that in.

It was 32 degrees this morning! Probably colder since I didn't look a the temperature until after sunup. And I slept with my windows open. Now I've got the heat on for a few minutes. I had to give in and do it, my fingers were about to fall off. So there you have it, the heat has been turned on and summer is over.

Yesterday Katia and I had a great time shopping. I didn't find what I needed at the craft store but I did make myself a necklace and buy myself a jacket. Peacoat type thing. Katia hadn't heard of one. I think she thought I said pee coat. It was really funny, how she asked me "What did you just say?" I was feeling bad about spending the money until John told me how much he's going to spend on a Seahawks jersey today. I told him I'm going to go back out and go shopping again!

Hope the Seahawks win today, it's John's first time at a game. He was really excited.

Grandma is still hanging in there. Just sleeping. Her body is shutting down but her heart is strong, so it could be a few days. They'll keep her asleep though. She's having lots and lots of visitors. There's a lot of speculation on whether she can hear them. I used to think people in that state could hear, probably from all the coma movies they made when I was a kid. I don't know what to think now. It makes me want to go give her a hug and tell her I love her, just in case she can hear me, but I can't. I have to wait to go over so my sister can ride with me to the funeral. She can't drive herself.

Well, nevermind all that. I just found out in a kind of offhand way that she died quietly in the middle of the night. It was a good way for her to go, she just slipped softly away. I wish I'd found out in a more normal manner, it was a bit shocking.

I think I'll go spend some time with the horses.

So sorry about your grandma. I lost mine 20 years ago and I still miss her. Always will, I guess. But, she is no longer in pain, lonely and with my dad, grandfather, sister and cousin who went on before. We will see them again.

So sorry for your loss - hope your time with the horses made you feel a bit better.

So sorry about your grandma. I remember awhile back you wrote about both of your grandma's and they both sounded so cool. Horses help at times like these.
