Fall Festival/Pumpkin Patch today

Saturday, October 08, 2011

I love the fall season of the year. Today, there is a BIG fall festival just about 10 minutes from us. There is a big store (3 floors) on lots of land) that has so many items for sale. It is called Country Connections, so that tells you what kind of store it is. They have one whole floor with Amish made furniture that is just beautiful. There is a FREE wagon ride to the pumpkin patch and they are making apple butter, apple dumplings, brunswick stew, BBQ chicken, bake sale, etc. You can go to the store and spend hours just looking. I am really looking forward to today. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Lots of Tomatoes Still

Thursday, October 06, 2011

Yesterday I cleaned up the garden areas in our backyard. I took off all of the tomatoes that were left and raked everything out. It sure looks good. I can't believe how many tomatoes were still on the vines. Some of them are still as large as in the beginning......our tomato crop was really abundant this year. I am posting a picture of what was collected......now I just have to decide what to do with them; there are lots of green ones.

    Thats a LOT of tomatoes! I can't eat tomatoes...they will give me heartburn quicker than just about anything except for onions and garlic.

    Enjoy! I am very, very jealous. Most people around our area didn't have very good tomato crops (myself included). I missed it.

    Oh you are so lucky! My tomatoes did not produce too well this year due to the fact it was so very hot. I love the basket full of tomatoes.

Family Picture Frame I Made for Mom

Sunday, September 25, 2011

I forgot to post a photo of the "Family" picture frame that I put together for Mom today. There are 3 photos: The 5 generation photo, A photo of me and my hubby Larry, and a photo of my brother Al and his wife Peg. Mom really liked it and had lots of smiles on her face.

The frame says: Family--the most important thing in life is family.

I had a great Weekend

Sunday, September 25, 2011

My daughter Carla (PINKNFITCARLA) came for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and also to visit with Mom who is in rehab with a broken (in 2 places) pelvis bone. Mom seems to really like her room and all of the wonderful staff taking care of her. Seems she is in a hotel....lol....lol...she just has to ring a bell and someone comes right away to see what she wants. Carla and I went up twice yesterday and twice today. I got a "family" picture frame and put pictures in it for her and also made her an album so she won't feel so lonely when no one is there. Most all of her friends are 2.5 hours away because that is where she lived before she came to stay with us in February. She just moved to an independent living 3 weeks before she fell this time. I feel so bad for her because she just loves her apartment and now isn't there. She has met lots of neighbors and said how nice all of them are. One of the neighbors came to rehab today to visit her. I am so happy Carla was here for the weekend. We always have a good time together and I just love it when she comes. Nancy

Mom in Rehab

Saturday, September 24, 2011

As most of you know, Mom (86 years old) fell and broke her pelvis bone (in 2 places) last Saturday morning in her apartment. She was in the hospital until Tuesday when she was sent to rehab. The rehab is only 4 miles from our home and I go there 2-3 times a day. I am so thankful it is close so that I can go often. She has been living with us for the past 6 months (because of a fall at that time) but just insisted on getting back her independence. Her home, before here with us in February, is 2.5 hours away so all of her friends are there. Not many people will be able to get to visit her. She is eating well, and doing the therapy as they ask her to do. She got into a whirlpool yesterday and just loved it......that was a first for her. She isn't allowed to get up on her own, but she sometimes does because she forgets. My daughter Carla (PINKNFITCARLA) is here this weekend for my birthday on Monday and to spend some time with Mom. I am so glad she is here. We are printing pictures and going to take her some frames for her walls tomorrow to hopefully make her not feel so alone. We were there for her dinner today and took this photo when she had finished eating.
