    Unfortunately, I was in a cranky mood all morning. But then the sun came out and I was better. We had another beautiful sunny day here and it's supposed to be a sunny weekend.

    I was awakened today by the ringing of my phone.  It was my brother telling me that my mother had to be rushed to the hospital, via ambulance, from her job.  At first, I was in shock, then I was just stressed.  I have an 11 month old daughter and my husband was out with our only car.  The good thing that happened today was that, it turned out, my mom had just had an anxiety attack and collapsed from exhaustion... This is good because she has an on-going heart condition and it was not a heart attack.  My dear husband rushed home and then rushed to the hospital to make sure she was okay.  My mother is okay, and I got the chance to talk to my brother and my sister.  We cried and reminded each other how much we love each other.  In spite of the bad beginning, I was blessed today.

      So sorry to hear about your mom Davina. My mom has congestive heart failure and has had a couple of heart attacks and had open heart surgery so I can relate to those phone calls and I know how stressful and gut wrenching it all is.

      To think of your mom and how scary of a situation like that is for her I am sure as well.
      Have peace today and I will pray for her recovery and for you and your family's peace through it all. smile

    Long story short...  I had to dress up in a High School Tiger mascot outfit and dance around my kids Elementary School to get them pumped up for a fundraiser we're doing (a Jog-a-thon).  Oh, yeah, just to add insult to injury, I danced to the tune of "Eye of the Tiger".  Yeah, that's right.  Laugh if you want.  It was actually VERY fun...  The kids loved it.  Had to then stand around in the thing for an hour DRIPPING sweat.  Very hot costume.  I have all new respect for team mascots.  What a hoot it was.  None of the kids knew it was me, not even my own kids!  GREAT DAY!

    Had the day off from work, spent the day with my husband, writing and cooking.  Made scalloped potatoes which are my favorite comfort food, and it came out great.  Listened to music in the evening and munched on chips and salsa.  My kind of day!

    I had a lovely day, today.

    It was warm and sunny most of the day, and I had lunch in Gray's Inn gardens with a couple of mates.

    And this evening we came down to Kent for a weekend with my parents and sisters, Isaac was delighted.

    Work was great; I love my staff and customers...helped a gentleman save his home from being taken for over-due taxes...I love to help people.

    My dog's health is getting alot better; thank you! Worried that we were going to lose him today!  Again I thank God!

    Great thread UW. I just came back from my class where my students presented their projects. I was pleasantly surprised by their presentations. They really took the time and the effort to give good ones. I ended up giving them high grades (higher than the usual ones I give) smile. Gives me great pleasure to see them go to all this trouble for my class.

    I woke up cold and way too early - because all the windows in the house are still open - so I felt like I was getting a cold.  The day turned into a beautiful, 70-degree day.  At the end of the work day I had a surprise visit from my son, who got a car he's been needing.  He was here with his father; then my sister unexpectedly showed up, so she and I went out for a light dinner and conversation.   When we returned my son and his father were back, so had time alone with just the one son for a couple of hours.  It turns out I wasn't getting a cold after all - so, all in all, a very nice day.   smile

    This is really cool to peak inside Hubbers' private lives this way!

    My day was a lot about connecting with people -- good interactions with business colleagues. Yeah!

    Spent some quality time here on HP interacting pleasantly with other hubbers. Read some great poetry and hubs. Nice tribute by Hal to Misha!

    Met a good friend for coffee in the afternoon. Lovely to sit in a garden oasis with fountains and art objects all around.

    It's 9:26pm and not a troll in sight. Ahhhh. Life's blissful.

    Now back to the topic of this forum. Well this morning I picked up my electric drill and discovered that the re-chargeable battery had completely gone kaput. It did serve me well for 9 years though.

    It needed 14.5 volts of DC to function. I had several mobile phone chargers but the output of each of them was insufficient to operate the driller. Then, believe it or not I just came across a step-down transformer which powered my very first printer. It had an output of 13.3 volts!!!

    I quickly got about linking the DC supply to my driller and ... IT WORKED!

    We then relocated a shelf which was in the kitchen! Success indeed! smile smile smile

    The first thing is kinda very private but lets just say very early in the day I spent quality time with my wife. smile

    My printer ran out of ink before i could print my sermon so I had to preach from my laptop today, but the congregation seemed to have been blessed by it.  A few even requested follow up information.

    At lunch time I had the opportunity to encourage at least two persons in need.  Yes, I love to help people.

    Then in the evening my heart was filled with joy at watching my son grow up.  I have to be doing my best to avoid spoiling him more.  He had just done a march with the Pathfinders, and was hungry and tired.  It was his turn to wash dishes so I washed up for him. I just adore my family, God bless them.
