I get up in the morning with a list sooo long knowing if the phone rings that list will go in the trash and off I go doing whatever with whoever. And at the end of the day, I am tired and disgusted because I got nothing done on my list. So today guess what? There will be no more list UNLESS it is a shopping list. After all these years I am giving it up. I have come to realize I am old enough to do what I want when I want to and if it don't get done,, so be it. Oh well enough on that. We'll see how long my new outlook on list holds out.
Got up this morning and went to visit Mother in the nursing home. She was actually alert today and talked a little more and smiled lots. Sure does make the start to the day so much brighter. But the conversations one has with a 90 year old. Of course she wears depends, and doesn't hesitate to tell you when she uses them. But she told us today she just wet the sweetest easy wet! Just a precious one. Couldn't help but laugh and today she laughed with us. Darbee Rae thought she had lost her mind,,,, well most days bless her heart,,, she has, but not today. I told her she was still pretty when she smiled and she told me she knew she was prettty. That is the Mother I have always known. She always had a lot of pride and thinks highly of ONLY herself. But today we all laughed together. Thank you God for another visit with the mother I rarely see anymore.
Mr. P. has been busy working in the shop trying to get things made for the show in September. But this weekend he did make a little something for me. Will share it with you tomorrow. I will be using it to decorate with my patriotic decor and hope to start that tomorrow. Not on a list... But maybe if the phone don't ring, and I don't find myself going somewhere. Will try and post some pictures tomorrow night. I have also managed to get a lot of things made in the craft room for the September show. So much futher ahead than normal this time of the year. Altho it's mostly fall items, will post some of those also.
But tonight I am leaving you with some pictures of Mr. P's beautiful roses. Yep, I walked out in the yard to take a few pictures. You know I don't like outside, dirt and bugs. But, these looks so pretty out the kitchen window, I wanted to share. This first picture is special. I don't know the real name of the rose bush, but my grandmother called it "Seven Sisters" because of all the cluster of little roses. If any of you know different please let me know. Mr. P got the cutting from the old homeplace before it sold. I think of my grandmother everytime I see it in bloom.
Maybe I haven't bored you with a regular day in my life. Hoping you will take the TIME to come back by tomorrow and visit again. I enjoy your visits and your comments. Until tomorrow...
