Hi..Plans have changed so now I'm onto plan D or maybe E? Daughter had her hysterectomy and was not the major incision kind so she got out of the hospital early..Saturday actually so I'm up here for a couple weeks or more and also some back and forth trips..because October is a really busy month for our place..pasture take out, etc.
First on to my daughter..she has 6 weeks or more of recovery time and is having a hard time with being bored...she is usually so active ...any suggestions..it's only been a couple days and she's really bored..tired of tv, the internet and sleeping..it'll be a couple more weeks till she can even drive. The granddaughters come home today after gymnastics..they are with the other grandma for a while. That may help. So far I have been doing a little housework, meals and laundry. I didn't get all the stuff made that I wanted to since she got home early.
Also hubby and I didn't make it to Saskatoon for Sunday and Monday since I was already here. So today is hubby's birthday and I'm here and he's at home :( oh well I can't be everywhere!! I did make him a cake before I left and he opened his gifts..too..but I've phone lots and he's not been in...
The Ladies Luncheon was tons of fun.. our table theme was Road kill café..and my friend and I were dressed up in overalls and caps..I had a name patch.. Bubba, that's my nickname..our menu was deer sausage, cheese and crackers, tossed salad..aka ditch weeds with 3 types of dressing...used oil and vinegar, road ranch, 1000 miles from no where, main course was prairie chicken wings, porcupine meatballs, "grilled" vegetables and monkey wrench bread..dessert was grasshopper pie and for snack we had nuts and bolts and beef jerky.
Then I left early from the luncheon and went home, packed up and drove here..around a 3 hour drive. I think I'm staying until next Tuesday so I'm home for the first round up on Wednesday and take out on Thursday..then back up here for the weekend and help Granddaughter celebrate her 10th birthday :) Not sure what we'll plan for that..doing that should help distract daughter once her girls get here...also her live in boyfriend is on the night shift this week and next week so it makes it hard to do any noisy jobs while he sleeps during the day, like laundry, vacuuming, etc.
Well I should get working on some October goals..I have started to refresh my spark page and my theme is change..lots of changes here..besides the obvious leaves changing, my lifestyle change, my body hopefully changing for the smaller..also at 53 I have my own "changes" going on and now daughter has had a complete hysterectomy...so there will be lots of changes there..
Here in Canada we also have Thanksgiving in October as well as Halloween and fall is one of my most favorite times of the year. Driving thru the changing leaves gives me great pleasure..I love the trees on the way to Weyburn and then on Saturday I came up through the Lumsden and Craven valleys where the leaves are almost done there.I went to Humboldt yesterday for groceries..quite near my daughter's and the trees are still beautiful and colorful!! I was getting a couple of sale turkeys and my cart was near a ladder and this repair man was climbing down and almost into my cart..he said I'd have to take him to the checkout and pay for him...so I came back with the sign said..limit of 2 turkeys.. haha..oh yeah..October is also laughter month...
Better go for now..thanks for dropping by and keep on sparkin' and keep on changing..
Oh yes..please share any ideas for a bored 30 year old who has to lay around for 6 weeks..also any jokes would be fun..I need the laugh :)
Nothing changes if nothing changes.....
