As usual, behind on the pictures and activities happening around these parts. A couple of weeks past, Giddy-Up and I attended a Lip Sync show featuring Missy Bugg in song after song. What an entertaining evening.
As you are about to see, our bathroom is under construction. On its best day, this ol' tumble down house is a mess, but it is currently particularly awful. I had a friend in need and I didn't want to have to deal with a local restaurant to talk and share and maybe boo hoo a bit. So, I just swallowed hard and said, "Come on over and be careful where you step." I so appreciate those friends who can look beyond the yucck to what is sweet.
So, after dealing with getting my frail Mama in some bathrooms and in her own tub- ahem, why are there tubs in assisted living? I digress. Anyway, we've begun the process of tearing out that wall you see straight ahead so the living room door will now be the bathroom door and the toilet will no longer be sequestered in a tiny closet. All decisions are based on if a rolly chair fill fit.
Our first spring activity was to make a spring bouquet from branches, jelly beans and tissue paper.
Bean did great moving up to the older group.
At 1:17:18 you will hear his name several times, ummm, his real name, and watch him take the lead and finish first in this group. Not having strong athletes in our family, it is just kind of a thrill to hear them talk about him like on grown up sport programs. I've watched this ten times.
I returned home Sunday and Spring Playdate was yesterday. Thank the Lord, the rain held off till we had herded them all back in for a big turkey feast.
Last summer I bought stuff to start a fairy house. We never managed to even start it. Their interests were just elsewhere. Yesterday, the notion struck and stuck and we spent a couple of hours under the tree fort designing. They have big plans to expand all the way around the tree to create a village. How much did I love to watch this in play.
Off to my first eye appointment in about twenty years, and then more people to see. The weather may be cool, but spending time with my people warms my heart! Thank you Lord for such an abundance of blessings.
