Yesterday was Full!!

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Yesterday morning went to the church for a "Gal's Retreat" - a very good friend led it. First we met in the sanctuary for a time of Bible study and sharing. Then to the Parlor for a "coffee break. Some had brought some tasty goodies - had half of a peach muffin - sooo gooood.

Then we did a craft - we made beaded bracelets - well, Lisa showed us how - similar to macrame - only a couple actually finished. The rest of us brought them home to finish. Really cute. May make some with my granddaughters. Then back to the sanctuary and another friend shared with us. It was about 12:30 when I finally left.

My friend Elaine was there so of course we had to chat for a bit in the parking lot afterward.

My daughter had called so went by her house for about an hour - they have 4 new kittens - so very cute. Then to the grocery store for a few things for supper. Home to fix meatloaf and mashed potatoes for my boy for dinner (this is their favorite). We watched "Somewhere in Time" - an older Christopher Reeve movie. Had been a long time since I had seen it and had forgotten most of it.

Finally to bed about 10:30. Al in all - it was a good day!

Had a good visit with Elaine at the coffee shop yesterday. She got her hair cut - a pixie cut - so cute on her. Then did some grocery shopping.

Today am just doing some cleaning - mopping, vacuuming, have another plant to get into the ground.

And, am reading the second book of "The Hunger Games".

My Daughter, Vicki

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Today is Vicki's Birthday! Just wish I could be with her.

She has been talking to her sister occasionally on the phone - and yesterday she asked to talk to me. So the nurse called me and put Vicki on the phone. She sounded tired - said she had had a hard day. But, It was so good to hear her voice. She understands that I live in Pendleton and it is a ways from Salem where she is. Just makes me want to go see her - perhaps later this summer. Not sure - I am just not up to driving that far anymore.

My sister sent me a box of pictures that Mom had - many of them were of Vicki as she was growing up - many that I did not have. So am scanning them and will send a few at a time to her.

Just have to add a couple of pictures:

That Baby is 55 today!!

    Gorgeous, Happy Birthday Vicki emoticon

Keep your spirits up Barb, I know you can't get to visit her as often as you'd like but remember she's well on the road to recovery and has her family with her. It's good you can speak with her on the 'phone emoticon
