#blogjune 2013 Day 8: In which I fall back on a bullet point post

Because I am tired and sad.

1. Saturday is a day for the kids to have swimming lessons.
2. A friend in Japan died yesterday - she fought cancer for 3 years, 8 months. Far too young to go, she leaves a son and daughter my age. Cancer sucks.
3. Spent some time helping DH chainsaw up a tree for firewood for my sister and ourselves.
4. Went out to Muriwai so DH could take photos of kingfishers and sunsets.
5. Made home made fish and chips.

In memory of Reiko:

In blossom today, then scattered;
Life is so like a delicate flower.
How can one expect the fragrance to last forever?

  1. Sorry to hear about your friend. Cancer sucks.

    Take care of yourself Penny.

  2. Oh that does suck, sorry to read that about your friend. I agree cancer does suck!! Hoping the next few days you are kind to yourself Penny, as you grieve. Kingfishers and sunsets though, beautiful.

  3. A lovely poem, Penny. Am very sorry for your loss.
    Take care
