Oh Deer!

The doe and her fawn that you see in the photo are getting braver and coming closer to our windows with each passing day. We are always on the lookout for them in the backyard and when we spot them, Gil and I would call out to one another to "Come quick to see the fawn!" and we'd quietly station ourselves at a window for the best viewing. 

By the time Gil comes home, the fawn's spots will be faded. (But the fawn and her mom will still be eating flowers from our garden and apples from our trees). 

We visited Gil this morning and watched some Wimbledon tennis together. He's on day 5 of 7 of his chemotherapy. His spirits are good and he's feeling okay but tired.

Tomorrow we take Evan to the airport for his return trip to LA. He brought his upbeat attitude to the hospital every day and it's great to have him around. (He's out golfing in Kensington Park with our neighbor friends right now). 

Gil's sister and his cousin come in tomorrow night from California and Seattle to spend time with us. Having family visitors gives me time to get other things done for the house and the dogs and the garden so I like having extra family around to share the visiting hours.

Gil has encouraged me to return to my twice-a-week Pilates sessions and I will get back to it this coming week. Sitting in a hospital room is NOT aerobic nor does it work the core muscle groups!
