While this picture was taken last year, I swear, when I went outside the Farmer’s house tonite and sat on the back porch for a smoke break. This is what I saw. There was a black cloud passing over, and the full moon was ducking inside of the clouds, it would shine for a moment and then was gone.
I seriously thought about going inside and getting the Farmer’s camera for a picture, but the speed the clouds were moving, I never would have made it. For a mere second I thought about howling at the moon. Yea, I’m a little crazy that way.
I went back inside, and then helped Momma to bed. Today is my “upside down day”. Momma got to ride to her bedroom tonite, we got her in the wheelchair and I showed her how to do a wheelie, (she was not impressed).
The Farmer and I got to talking and then I went looking. We bought Momma a “Ferbie” a few years ago. I found it on the top shelf of the closet, the Farmer changed batteries, and neither him nor I could remember how to work it. We gave it to Momma, who was tucked into her bed, nice and warm and cozy. She immediately remembered what to do. She stuck her finger in its mouth and it started “feeding”. I honestly can’t believe that she remembered.
Funny thing, this Parkinson’s, Momma can’t remember somethings, but she was very happy to see her Ferbie back, and knew exactly what to do. Hopefully it will make her happy in some way.
Momma was kinda snoozy when I first got there this evening. I finished all the laundry and then made the Farmer dinner, (uhm…he burned some of it in the re-heating process). The Farmer had waited until I got there to run to Wal-Mart to pick up meds, and a few groceries. I finished up a couple of my normal things that I do, and then went in and sat with Momma. It was me and her time.
We chatted for a bit and then she got a little sleepy, so I left her in the front room and went into the kitchen. Goldie followed me, and then Spice girl showed up. I think they miss the early morning bacon, and watched me put together the Farmer’s dinner, meowing very loudly. I gave in and gave them some treats but told them they would not like “supper”.
I pulled some stuff out of the freezer, for tomorrow night, because instead of going over in the morning, I am putting Momma to bed tomorrow night. The Farmer requested a Beef Stew for the weekend, which I will put together and put it into the crock pot for him to start on Saturday morning. He also requested the beef steaks smothered in gravy for tomorrow nights dinner. With everything pulled out of the freezer to thaw out, and the stuff he bought at the store, he will be set for some good eating this weekend. Not to mention the fact, I made some more corn muffins tonite. I had made 6 muffins yesterday, and somehow, they all disappeared today.
The “upside down” days are ok, I got a bunch done at my house today, my Electrician was a plumber today. That was not pretty, but it needed to be done. I am very proud of my Electrician, he tries so hard to be “Tim-the -tool-man -taylor”. Trust me when I say, he does it all, he may get pissed and cuss something fierce, and get mad (that’s usually when I go upstairs and say if you need me let me know). He is truly amazing. He has so many projects he is working on right now, it truly makes my head spin. Although not necessarily in a bad way.
I have new appliances in my kitchen, I have a black refrigerator, which my outlaws bought for us a couple of years ago, and a new stove, which I put on layaway and purchased while the Electrician was on the road. The only funny thing was the Electrician had taken down the hood to the stove about a 2 years ago and painted it white. Yesterday, he took it down and sanded it and primered it, and now he has painted it black, to match everything in my kitchen.
He gets bored being laid off and starts on these projects. I truly don’t mind, and my house is smiling at him right now. But I truly think the full moon has played a part in today in more ways than can ever be spoken…..
