hi Lynneeeee!

I just got back from being inked-wasn't too bad. I'm striped from my toes up and tattooed in honor of the only two men unknown to me that I will ever love

nope, not bad at all. It needs a bit of tweaking once it heals but all and all it's swell

BlissC -- I love your day and the tribute to Heath. Very sweet!

Susiebk -- Cute striped hoody!! And that is an extremely beautiful yellow rose!

Today I wore black pants with gray vertical stripes, black shell, green shirt, and a purple sweater!! Kinda loud. I think it would have fit right in with Heath!  :)

Yesterday didn't go the way I wanted. My son and I were both unwell and so we both stayed at home the whole day. I didn't get out of my sweatsuit but at least wore my striped socks.
Instead, I wore stripes today. A striped longsleeve shirt and my purple striped scarf.

Never enough stripes, never enough.  :)

Are you and your son feeling better, Chrissi?

You can say that twice and mean it. I bought six (!) pairs of striped socks this week and didn't even think of Heath when I bought them. But when I unpacked them at home, Heath came to my mind and I smiled to myself. Maybe he was on my mind unconsciously.

Yes, everything is fine, thanks for asking. We weren't really sick, just unwell. Bad headache ony my part, feeling cold, tired and put through the wringer all day. But today we woke up and were fine.

Additionally to wearing stripes I had planned to hang a little cowboy hat into a tree on the fields were I walk my dog. It's made of plastic and I put a hole in it with a heated needle. I'll use a nylon thread and hope it will hang there for a long time. Will do this on Monday.

I guess the day doesn't matter, as they say, it's the thought that counts, and even if what we'd planned didn't come off, or didn't happen how we'd have liked it to, in our own ways we honoured Heath by thinking of him and remembering him, just as we do every day by talking about him and keeping his memory alive.

I hope you're feeling better today.
