Mom felt good when she woke up. We visited and had coffee... My sister and her daughter came over .. her daughter painted mom's finger nails a very pretty pink. Then we made dinner... I made salmon with that we had garlic potatoes and we picked up a Caesar salad at Costco and it was yummy. Then we made strawberry shortcake... yum o... as Rachel Ray would say. My sister Laurie came by for a visit and we gave mom a shower and gave her a massage... and slathered her with lotion.. she was in heaven.
Sunday was a good day for mom... my brother and his wife came over for a visit... both sisters came by we had a full house... then we hear a knock at the door.. and there is mom doctor... he stayed for quite awhile and mom loved it... he is really quite funny... very dry and I mean dry sense of humor... he is from the east coast... I think that is why he really likes mom. I was so happy that he came over, it meant so much to her.. he told us he would check back before he leaves for vacation to see what meds she might need while he is gone. I took a picture of him while he was here.
Probably starting Thursday... it is going to be crazy here.. the Hydro races start and there are so many people here you cant go anywhere.
This website has a nice article on the races..Click here.
Monday my daughter Roxane and her two daughters came for a visit while my grandson was in drivers training... I know what you all are thinking... I am not old enough to have a grandson that old... hehe... I am not.. I tell you I am not! .. really I am not! It was a great visit.
after they left.. I took mom for a ride through Columbia Park along the Columbia River... lots of memories down there.. I use to take my son fishing down there.. we took the kids to the playground more times then I could count. We saw many hydroplane races, and rode our jet ski's every summer on the Columbia River.
We drove all over Kennewick an looked at all the different houses that Robert and I and the kids lived in.. and what people have done to change them. Mother really enjoyed seeing them. We drove around new housing developments. Housing is so inexpensive here. But it couldn't ever replace Seaside.
We then headed over to my sister Florence's to see what she was up to.. and told her that we wanted dinner.... *grin*... so she fixed us dinner and I fell asleep in her big chair for about 20 minutes. We had a nice dinner and visit... then we headed home to bed.
I had such awesome gifts waiting for me on the table when I got home... I had mail from many friends in Seaside... and a book from one of them.. I cant tell you how nice that was. THANK YOU !
Please bare with me if you have not gotten a response to an email... I try to get to them as quickly as I can. I do love getting them so please... don't stop.
Tuesday morning we were woke up with someone banging on the door... we all got home and ran to the door... another wonderful surprise.. My sweet adorable husband send a bouquet of flowers to my mother and one to me... we both were so excited.. what a great way to wake up. I made some lasagne .. because this morning my brother told me he was tired of the girly stuff I was making... he wanted some BEEF... *grin*
ok... so I really didn't make it.. I bought it from Costco... good.... my sister Laurie came over to visit and she brought some yummy garlic bread.
I really should get some sleep.. but when mom goes to sleep it is my time to unwind then I tend to stay up too late. Good night.. : )
