Had a great lunch at the Ninety-Nine with Mom and some college friends visiting from Georgia! She was in fine form today.

Today’s big long conversation with Philip can not be shared. Sorry.
You know those days when you wake up and listen to the radio news while you’re in the shower and something big happens far away? And you know right away that your man is right in the middle of it?
So you text him and yup… he’s dealing with it and says you can help! Hooray!
So you text back and forth, telling him what CNN is saying on the outside while he’s telling you what’s going on from the inside? And feeling really close to him, worrying for him, yet feeling useful… and it all works out okay and you breathe a big sigh of relief… and celebrate with some mushy sexy texts?
AND YOU CAN”T SHARE ANY OF IT WITH ANYONE? ARRRRRGH!
Well… then you know what today was like.
Ah, this double life. *sigh
Here’s a cute dog and cat photo. Have a nice day!

Good morning kid!
Yay! Hope it’s an easy drive.
I made it through the liver ultrasound this morning! Great way to make a Monday morning even more special. : P
Took another silly Facebook quiz. This description fits me pretty well!
Which flower matches your personality?
You are like a Lavender – You have a soothing presence, people love your company and you always know how to make them feel better. You are thoughtful and considerate, often putting others first. You can make strangers feel at home. No matter how sad someone is feeling, you can always provide comfort and solace.

The best brand reactions to the historic equal marriage decision. Fascinating to see corporations getting on board so quickly.
Eating lunch with Mom at Greek Corner. Their avegolemono soup and gyros are the best!
Asked Mom if she’d heard the big news yesterday about the Supreme Court? I never know what she’ll come up with. She said yes, about time. If someone is in love and wants to marry, nothing else matters.

Found a cobbler recipe that looks simple enough for me to make! Thought you might like it, too.
From: Tina Charlene’s Facebook page
You better hit share and keep this on your computer to find it later. This is the easiest way ever, to make cobbler!
Frozen berries, dry cake mix, and 1 can of sprite. yummy cobbler. It sounds so easy – and it is good and weight watcher friendly!
Two 12-oz bags frozen mixed berries
[You can use frozen peaches instead of mixed berries.]
1 box white cake mix (no pudding)
1 can of diet 7-up or sierra mist (clear soda)
Place frozen fruit in a 9×13 baking dish.
Add dry cake mix over the top.
Pour soda slowly over cake mix.
[DO NOT stir the cake mix and the pop – this will give you a ‘crust’. If you stir the two, you will have a cake like topping.]
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 min.
I am old enough there have been times I thought I wouldn’t live to see this day. I’m overjoyed that marriage equality has arrived across the country. Love wins. Huzzah!

Good morning kid! No work for me. Two medical appointments. Whee. Hope you had a great day!
At eye doc for regular check-up. Waiting for my pupils to dilate. Yippee.
Healthy eyes! Yay!
Having lunch outside in between appointments. Nothing like eating a ham and cheese croissant and watching the world go by!
Good visit with my PCP doc.
She’s sending me off for more blood tests, and to see specialists. Yay.
Burger King has a new red velvet shake. Definitely avoid unless you like chocolate, whipped cream and Oreos in a thick red chilled mass of evil goodness. 🙂
