Hello there. Hope this finds you well as you visit me here. Today was a day filled with nice surprises. I lost my medicine doctor, apparently she quit which was very upsetting because we both liked her. So it is understandable we were both apprehensive about my appointment today. Turns out God had it handled. We were blessed with the quit witted Nurse practitioner named Mary. She had the most lovely Nigerian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigeria) accent. She said that even after 20 years she hasn’t lost her accent and I told her I hope she never does! Sadly, there is no guarantee she will be there for my next appointment so I will just be glad we met.
“We meet, we greet, sorrow and joys exchanged and sometimes there is no farewell when our lives are rearranged. So I will whisper thank you to the air and hope somehow God will help you hear. ”
Isn’t that the way of so many interactions we have with people online or in life? We will get to know someone and then they just abruptly move on to another phase of their lives without saying good-bye? I hope for whatever reason she left, many wonderful new and exciting doors will open and be a blessing for her.
We stopped by the Country Store in Grandview on the way home and got some things for lunches. We can only go in there about once a month otherwise I’d probably buy everything in the store! When we got home, even the dogs seemed to know we had been someplace wonderful which was later confirmed by their getting bites of our sandwiches.
This afternoon there was a knock on the door from the UPS truck and a surprise was waiting there! My friend sent me a large box of Crayola chalks with all sorts of fancy colors in it! What a sweet thing for her to do and so appreciated. They will definitely get used! My family and friends that I keep in touch with long distance like it when I share my chalk drawings. My friend who sent these new chalks is one of my biggest supporters. I am so grateful for her!
Earlier this afternoon, before the new chalks had arrived, I went out and did this drawing. Turns out Kyle has chosen Thor: Ragnarok as the movie we were watching the evening. This drawing makes me think of Hela who was portrayed by a woman who has literally been in my dreams, the beautiful Cate Blanchett!
Hela (comics) Hela is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The Asgardian goddess of death is based on the Norse goddess, Hel. The ruler of Hel and Niflheim, the character has been a frequent foe of Thor.
Kyle and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie! Everything from the writing, the humor, the chemistry between the actors…just awesome! We felt very much like we did after we watched the very first Revengers *cough Avengers film. We loved the balance of humor, action and drama. The references to actors other screen works was funny too like 177A Bleecker Street versus 221 Baker Street for the unexpected meeting with Dr. Strange aka Sherlock Holmes!
This film was directed by Taika Waititi. We were first introduced to who Taika was when we saw him in What We Do In The Shadows. That was such a fun film! It’s one of the rare films of that genre we added to our collection almost right after we saw it! Anyhew, a big thumbs up from our house for everyone involved with this film.
