Jerry came over to me as I was finishing the dinner dishes and said, "Honey, would you mind if I go down to the pond to fish for awhile?"
He knows I can't leave Mom and go with him, so it was really sweet of him to ask me if he could go.
So Jerry is fishing, and Mom is in her bedroom brushing her teeth and changing into her pajamas. She does that every night right after eating her bowl of ice cream. It takes her a long time to do it, but I let her do it alone because it causes her brain to work. After while, she will come down the hall with a bag of trash from the several little trash cans in her bed and bath. She empties them every night! Again, something to work her brain.
I received a very surprising phone call as I was fixing dinner tonight. It was from the realtor trying to sell my Mom's double-wide mobile home and the land it is on.
I noticed it was her calling and thought, "Oh, no! WHAT broke now?"
Actually, something WAS broken. Water was leaking around the bottom of the toilet in the Master Bathroom. Fortunately, the realtor knows EVERYBODY in that part of the country, and she called a plumber to come right out to fix it. Haven't heard yet if he showed up and how much it will cost. Hope it is minor.
But, that wasn't all. She told me that a young couple had just made an offer on the place. It was less than we were asking, but we expected that. I was THRILLED! That is a huge headache off my plate, and I am very thankful.
AND, the buyers are paying C A S H ! They have a very nice Grandpa.
I asked Mom later if she liked the lady doctor who came. She said she would PREFER a man!
I sew every chance I get. I've made six new tops recently. You have seen the patterns before. Haven't started a new quilt yet because I need a background fabric. I love the Edyta Sitar batiks, but they are as RARE as Hen's teeth!
My stomach is starting to look a lot like that chicken's! I'm headed upstairs to get on the Elliptical and trampoline.
Have a great holiday weekend my friends!
