I have a Home and Garden Show  Committee meeting this morning.  For Jefferson Co. Master Gardeners it is the 25th anniversary of our show and admission is free on this Saturday, February 9th.  Our profits go toward our Yourh Garden project and pays for seeds and plants.  School children kindergarten thru 5th grade are bussed in to lthe garden.  We help them plant and teach them about gardening.  Later they come back and help harvest what they planted and take produce home.

 Today i'm going to put up several different samples of paint and try to decide on one. I'm going to paint the bathroom once the weather has warmed up some. Since I rent the house I could just go with boring white which is easy to use when you are going to move so you can fix any nicks in the paint that strangely seem to appear when the house is empty. I am also leaning into maybe pastels. Hummm... I really like to paint & did work at painting houses when I was married (30 plus years ago!)

Spent the morning with my husband.  He is doing much better, walking with a walker.  The wheelchair is gone.
Now just have to get him used to toileting again. After weeks of asking they did remove the small commode from over the toilet and put a raised seat on the toilet so at least it is more comfortable and looks a bit more like a "real" toilet.  That should get him used to it again.
I sure would love to get him home by the end of the month.

Sara, how I miss the cookies.  I used to be a leader when my daughter was a junior scout.  Now we hardly have any girls come to the door to sell cookies.  Occasionally I can find them outside a grocery store.  I'd buy some if they came to see us!!  Good luck with your sales!!!!

 H M, If I may ask, what is the therapy for? I'm always curious as I used to work in physical therapy. Like the hair dresser can't stop looking at other peoples' hair in the stores-it's habit. Or the doctor that looks at other people outside of the office and sees things wrong with people. Or the policeman (or woman!) that spots out the shady looking characters in places. Hey this could go on forever! I guess I'll stop! Smile

 Gale, I really admire you for making this move. I can only imagine how it must be. I would be torn also. Tears can fall but they could be healing tears? Just go easy on yourself, ok?

Thanks Vicki for your kind words.They are healing tears.I have to keep going so many things to do.My younger son has been my rock through this whole thing.We talk and remember good times.We cry together.He wanted to go out to eat tonight saying that Dad wouldn't want us sitting around all depressed.It was strange going out to dinner without him.Thanks again Vicki.
