This morning I took notice to the flowers I received from my Son last Saturday for Mother`s day.
I did the usual chores here this morning. I should have been out in my flower beds, however I had not seen my Mother since last Saturday and decided the flowerbeds could wait for another day.
I called up to Gateway Haven to tell them I would be there to have Lunch today with my Mother. I thought I would surprise her.
This week our visit was not as good as last weeks. Last week Mom was her usual self. Today Mom was very confused and disorientated. When we had finished our Lunch at a little side room across from the regular dining area, Mom got up to go across to that area saying she was going to have lunch. After I had gotten her back to her room and left, she had followed me back down towards the dining room three times to go back for Lunch. Days like these make me *sad*.
I will be back to see Mom on Thursday as she needs to be taken to the Hospital for a chest x-ray as she has been having a persistent cough for months that the Doctor wants to take further precautions by checking more in depth.
Once I did finally leave, I stopped at a closed Garage Sale where there had been items left out with a `free` sign displayed. How could I possibly pass up checking out `free`stuff ever.
See there are some things in life Free, if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time and place.... you can always have a *smile* for FREE ! don`t ever forget that.
I had stopped into the Cocoa Vanilla also today. They have Artist Jennifer Crawley there today and tomorrow doing portraits for a small cost of $40.00 I do believe.
Jennifer is apparently at the Cocoa Vanilla again tomorrow. I know she had been booked for portraits today, however not certain about tomorrow. Should you be interesting in learning more, please do so by contacting the Cocoa Vanilla at 519-534-3334. If I thought Bandit could sit that long, I would surely take him to have his portrait done .. ha !
Oh yes, before I forget one of my most favourite downtown stores, The Cluttered Cupboard will be OPEN for Business tomorrow between the hours of 11 am and 3 pm.
When I did get home everyone needed out, about and back in by that time. This kept me busy for a bit, but I did manage to get a cup of coffee before I cleaned the Puppy Pen out.
This past week has been such a wonderful week weather wise that I had the opportunity at different times to spend some one on one time with almost everyone here. Drop over to The Checkerboard Aussies blog to see for yourself by *clicking* HERE.
I am off and running as I do believe that Crabby Cabbie husband of mine is going to try to come home to have some Dinner with me tonight, ``Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard``.
