LONG DAY

Thursday, May 28, 2009

We had my Aunts funernal this morning. We are in an area that has lots of small communities a more rural area. We had the services at a funeral home and then we drove over to another small country community for the grave services sby a small church on a country road. This is where my great grandfather and great uncle and their wives were buried. All the names in this small cemetary are very familar to me from family gatherings and holidays throughout my life. This was the last of my father's family from that generation. There were 10 boys and with their wives and all my cousins, holidays, family reunions and all were really noisey happy events. We were all talking about that today. Our grandmother had all her grandchildren on new years eve day and night and all the parents arrived on New Years day briing covered dishes for lunch. There were two bedrooms upstairs and she put all the girls in one and boys in the other. We sleep across the bed and on pallets on the floor. There were usually 24 grandchildren there for this event. We were a close family and we all grew up with family first in our lives

  


GOOD DAY WITH FAMILY

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

My niece brought her little girl and boy over this afternoon and we spent some time together. They are really full of energy. I see why they stay so slim. If only I had that kind of energy, it would not be necessary for me to watch what all I eat. I can never get all that much movement in my excerise sessions. Maybe I should get us jump around then run from one thing to the other, in and out never stopping long enough to sit down. I do remember that I was a very slender child. Maybe that is why.

  


DINNER WITH FAMILY

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Hubby, sister and I met my niece her husband and her daughter and friend for dinner at Carrabbas in Franklin, the half way point between their homea nd my sisters. We enjoyed our time together. He ate lots of food, not on my plan, talked and laughed a lot and had a really good time. So good to get to spend time with family. I do miss it being so far away. I am thankful for my girl friends. They are my family away from home. I do realize how much I appreciate them.

  


SAD NEWS

We received a phone call today that our aunt hd passed. She lost her husband of 63 years last month. She seemed in good health and getting around very well. They found her in her bed this morning. She had cared for our uncle for the last three years when we was not able to get around. He passed at 93. We were not planning to spend part of our vacation at the funeral home, but we were unable to come up for our Uncle's services.

ARRIVED AT SISTER'S HOME

Sunday, May 24, 2009

Well, we drove up all the way in the rain. At some times it was extrememly heavy. It took about 2 extra hours this trip. We had to stop when it got too heavy to see well. It has been raining since we arrived here. The weather forecast shows rain most of the week. But we are still enjoying our visit. This is the first time we have met my sister's new poodle, Francy. She got her when she was 7 months old. She is white and about 9 pounds. She is friendly and happy. My sister got her after she lost her little teacut poodle of 10 years. She has wrapped Hubby around her little white paw. We left Coco with our groomer while we are here as we were not sure how they would get along. We may try to bring her next trip if all works out.
