Today was a Good day, altho..on the other hand not so good. But let me explain. I got up this morning and decided I was going to take some pictures of my drive to my parents house, because in the fall it is a really pretty drive.
To be exact, if I take the back way it is exactly 24 minutes (obeying the speed limit and no unforseen happenings). If I take the route through town well it’s a good 30 – 35 minutes, and NOT so pretty. (I usually go the back way UNLESS it’s dark cuz when it’s dark….critters and deer come out and I’m REALLY not into hitting critters or deer…but that’s another story).
This is one of the most beautiful spots in my drive, your in the country and it’s very peaceful, unless there is someone coming down the hill while you are on your way up.
Then you run into these…you see it’s Harvest season now and you run into these guys every now and then, my advice…slow down and get out of the way….
And this… I just stopped because I loved the sky and this is almost to my parents house….
When I was a kid I never appreciated any of this, it was just “beans on the left….corn on the right”, but that was before my Dad took me across the pond to England (that’s another story)….Now that I am older and have grown (okay maybe not that much I’m the same height I was when I was uhm…10…..) to appreciate all that is around me.
I digress…that’s becoming a habit…uhm..sorry… Oh yea… I get to my parents house and the battery on my camera dies…yup…who knew? So I swapped my memory card with my Dad’s camera and VOILA…
p.s. I REALLY like Dad’s camera…..
I’m so easily distracted… It was a good day because I took care of both my Mom and Cam…I had fun with both of them. They are both alot alike, altho some people would disagree, they both LOVE me and are both (one from age, the other from a disease that no-one understands) kinda on the same wave-length.
My Mom told me tonite when I put her to bed…I Love you Daughter of my heart….That to me is worth more than I could ever express in words.
The Electrician got hit today….(this is the bad part), he laughs it off and it scares me silly. I know he is an Electrician but to get hit with 220 volts…uhm… I don’t like it and will NEVER get used to it. There is a mark on his arm that REALLY scares me… I’ve told him to be careful, but ya know what? He’s an Electrician and I have to get used to it…I don’t like it any more than I like Parkinson’s….BUT…I’m dealin with it, so if I have the occasional meltdown…I’ll tell you what THEY all tell me…DEAL with it!!!
I can tell ya’ll about my day..it involved my Mom (of course). Today she got a new chair the Rialto Luxury Lift® Power Recliner made by La-Z-boy.
Yes, it is one of those fancy “lift” chairs. Dad got it to be able to help my Mom get up and out of the chair. (Yes, this is a slight problem because he cannot body lift her like I do).
Well…I guess I should tell you, I forgot about rule number 1. Rule number 1, is that you don’t mess with someone’s surroundings. After introducing my Mom to the new chair, my Dad went off to be a “farmer” (i.e. ride around the Combine and harvest some beans). (Ok, I’m a lil’ bit jealous) (Ok…I’m ALOT jealous, I’d like to ride in a Combine and harvest some beans.) But I digress.
Back to the chair and rule number 1, my Mom was actually a little bit scared of the chair, it wasn’t her old uncomfortable familiar chair. After finally calming her down enough to actually be interested in it, she actually started to have some fun. Once she figured out to hold the up or down button (okay it was up and down & I helped), she started to get the hang of it. At first she wasn’t to impressed especially when she confided in me that she thought the chair was going to throw her butt out of it. But after many (and I do mean many) attempts, she finally got the hang of it.
So, by the time my Dad who from this moment on shall AKA be the Farmer (hehe love ya Dad) got home my Mom was gently lounging in what she termed “the chair that won’t throw my butt out of it”
Tune in for many more stories about “the chair”.
Due to watching my Mom AND the grankid yesterday, I didn’t have a chance to post anything…didn’t even get on the computer except for 5 minutes to play my Facebook games (Scrabble addict oh yea and farkle too).
I got up this morning at 5:30 am (if ya wanna call waking up…3 cups of coffee, 2 loads of laundry later, here it is 7:30 am). Checked the stats on my blog and Whammo….I got spammed! Hmmm…so what does this mean?
PEOPLE are reading my BLOG!!!! WOOHOO….
I will try and add more later, but for right now, I’ve gotta do all those domesticated things, finish laundry, put away laundry, vacume…find some more coffee, get ready and head over to the folks house and do it for them too…Oh Yea…today is the LONG…grankid day…so I’m not sure I’ll be back later or not.
Gotta figure out how to bottle up his energy, I’m feeling the need for some of it about now.
Have a GREAT day everybody!!!
