Feeling Thankful on a Thursday and the Weekly Menu, early for a change......

My husband, Frank, went into the hospital yesterday for a heart cath.  He had 2 stents put in a couple of years ago after this vacation when we noticed that he got very breathless with very little exertion.

While on our Alaskan Cruise a couple of weeks ago we again noticed that he was getting breathlesss
without sufficient reason.  I urged him to call the cardiologist when we got home and they scheduled him for a stress test which resulted in yesterday's heart cath.  They found another blockage in the same area as the first two stents but lower in the artery.  Another stent was installed and he spent the night in the hospital.

He is being released this morning and will have no physical restrictions so we will be able to start a walking program in earnest and hopefully prevent this from recurring.

This makes me very happy because I really like having this goofy guy in my life.  Here he is getting ready to join Lili and Spencer in the hot tub last Friday.  

I was scheduled to have a DoTerra Oil party this Saturday but, since I wasn't home to prepare and only 2 of my friends were available, I have canceled it.  Amy is having a party next month and my group will be invited to hers.

Saturday Pierre and Nicole will have a booth at the art fair in a neighboring town so perhaps we will stroll around there before Mass on Saturday night.  After Mass, we will walk across to the river where our little town is also hosting an art fair.

Sunday we are picking up Lili at her dorm and going to spend the morning at Eastern Market, a large farmer's market in the City of Detroit.  I think we are going to love having our Lilibug only an hour away as opposed to the 5 hours to get up north to see her.

Monday is Labor Day.  We don't have any plans as of yet but if the weather warms up we will probably hang out around the pool.  If the weather doesn't warm up we may be closing up the pool.

On Wednesday, late afternoon, Frank is having a refresher course for our friend, Fr. Slaten and his friend, Fr. White.  They will join us for dinner after the class.

Thursday, I am meeting my friend, Sue, for lunch.  It has been far too long since we have gotten together. Thursday night choir practice begins again for the year.

So that's my upcoming week....hope yours is just as pleasant.  You will find our Weekly Menu below. What's on your menu this week?
