I saw my friend Linda today and was very encouraged by how well she is doing.  The doctors did burn the tumour off her liver and also drained some of the bloating fluid from her abdomen.  Unfortunately, the drainage tube slipped out before all the fluid was drained.  But she is looking and feeling so much better.

We hope and pray that her physical troubles are now ended with this procedure.  Thanks for the prayers and support for her!

Our weather has been going from one extreme to another.  Wednesday was very hot--high 80's F, and high 20's C.  Then about 5:00 P.M. a thunderstorm followed by a cold front came through.  We had rain last night (much appreciated) and this morning the thermometer stood at 0ºC (32ºF).  Somehow the blossoming trees and shrubs are coming through anyway.  Here's our beloved Muckle Plum in the front yard:

We're so looking forward to warmer weather which is forecast for this weekend.  Monday in Canada we celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday, rather like the U.S. has a February holiday called "Presidents' Day," which was actually two holidays when I was a kid: Feb. 12 and Feb 22, Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays.  I sometimes wonder what these long deceased people would think if they could know that large populations celebrate their birthdays!  I think, really, it's just an excuse for a holiday, and that's a good thing, eh?  This is our first "long weekend" of the summer, and we hope it's a busy one at the Garden Centre!
