All in all, a good day

Jilda's regular checkup was on the calendar today so we mapped out our strategy early. I'd forgotten to get the coffee pot ready last night so when I stepped out on the deck to dump the grounds in our compost bucket, I noticed low-hanging clouds as dark as soot overhead.
Her appointment was at 11:45, and when we got on the road, the sun had found its way out, and overhead the sky was full of cotton-candy clouds.
The doc says she's doing well, but in order to keep her doing well, she'll have to continue taking her monthly infusion treatments indefinitely.
We kind of figured that, and she's OK with it. 
When we walked out of the clinic, a cool breeze out of the north caused me to shiver involuntarily. Jilda's a weather channel junky so she dressed appropriately, but I didn't wear a jacket and immediately regretted it. 
We decided to eat before heading home, so we stopped at On Tap, which is a bar, but they have great food.
I was craving a Cobb Salad and Jilda got a Jalapeno Cheeseburger. I snapped this photo as we waited for our food.
The service was perfect and soon we were chowing down. 
This evening I built a fire in the firepit and we sat outside watching dancing flames and listening to the crackle as the sun made its way below the horizon.
All in all, it was a good day.


  1. Really nice photo! Good days are good!

  2. She is lovely.
    May you continue to enjoy every moment. Sending you both warm smiles....

  3. Rick this really does sound like a good day. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  4. I'm glad that Jilda is OK with the unlimited continued treatments. If they help her then that is her path in life.

    I'm glad that you had a good day even with those dark clouds.

  5. So glad Jilda is doing well. All in all a good day indeed.

    Here's to MANY more good days for you & your lovely wife!!

  7. Sounds like an excellent day to me, and I hope you will enjoy many, many more. I am like your wife with the Weather Channel. We were out of town last Saturday for a soccer game in 46 degree weather. Did my DH pack a coat? No, bless his heart.
    Your Jilda is lovely.

  8. Jilda looks as beautiful as a ray of sunshine. I hope for many a good day for her and you as well.

  9. Sounds like a fine day. I enjoyed by day in the kitchen baking and cooking and watching it snow on and off all day. Just a dusting though and now it's all gone.

  10. So glad for both of you that the day turned out well. Your picture of Jilda is beautiful!
