Thank you all so much for your prayers and concerns for my grandmother. It really helps knowing that I have so much support. She is doing about the same as she was doing before the TIA. It is almost like it never happened. She still has mom... Read more

Well, I came home from church Sunday night to find my grandmother not speaking correctly. She was mixing her words and sounds. She'd say a "t" instead of an "l" or an "m" instead of an "s." My first thought was stroke! She didn't have any other ... Read more

My uncle came and got Gran yesterday morning. I thought she was going to be spending a few days with him. But this morning at about 9:15, he called. They are in town, and he's bringing her home. Her excuse to him was that her legs hurt, and... Read more

My twin sister was able to "gift" me the Patron tickets to our town's Community Concert for tonight. (Her bosses are sponsors and no one else took the tickets.) It was a concert by the Jackson Symphony Orchestra. It was just wonderful. Ther... Read more

Well, my "career" of selling my knitting at the artist's consignment shop is about over. We got an email Monday night, late, that the owner is closing the store. Even with almost 40 artists paying as little at $15 to over $100 a month rent, she ... Read more

Gran had more heart problems Monday night. She had a very rapid, irregular heartbeat. They put her med through an IV port that helped the regularity, but it brought her blood pressure way down (like 90/50). So from 11 pm Monday to 6:30 tonight, ... Read more

Well, I've gotten the garden area dug. My DH helped out today. We found two small bottles. One is a cylinder in dark amber color. It reminds me of a bottle that my great-grandmother kept asprin in. The other is similar to the small bottles that ... Read more

Well, planter gardening didn't do well for me last year. So, I've decided to give it another try planting in the ground. I'm having to dig by shovel instead of tiller; however, because our yard is like a landfill. I've dug in several diffe... Read more

Well, the weekend was a lot better than last week. Although my little one had to miss school (and their class egg hunt), her teacher brought her an Easter basket filled with eggs and other treats. It was so nice of her to do that. Not all t... Read more
