And my aunt Betty can't see well enough to drive anymore so she had to give up her car and I take her around and my cousin also helps her. Her son ( my cousin who is my age ) doesn't help her much and he has health problems also so my other cousin and I seem to be the only ones she can depend on. I take her to the store and we go shopping. She gets around pretty good so I have a shopping buddy and she's fun to be around. I help her and she helps me
Been busy in the garden which is a great stress reliever. Tom build some raised beds so our weeding is so much easier and we only put in what we could weed. So much nicer that way. No corn this year because the raccoons got it all last year but we have tomatoes and beans and peppers. I planted 2 rows of glads for color and 2 rows of sunflowers. 3 different types. Nothing nicer than seeing sunflowers in the garden plus they are good for the birds to peck on...
Getting ready to host the 4th at our house too. We re-painted the barn floor brown to look more rustic and we bought some barn stools for the bar and if it rains it will all be covered so we don't have to worry about not having room in the house for everybody . It should be nice for everyone. They seem to enjoy spending the day at the "farm".
Oh, and Tom's dad decided to stay at the nursing home he is in and not go home to live with my brother and sister in law. Both are parents are failing. The circle of life I guess. Who knows how we all will be at the end of our lives. It sure makes you stop and think. Well, not to be a downer, it is just the way my mind seems to go. I reflect a lot anymore. I sure do understand it when people get old and reminisce. Tom and I both got our 45th class reunion letter in the mail and we're going to go see how everyone fared over the years. Tom's class has lost about 16 people to cancer and other things. He could have been one too but he beat it thank God..
