Last Friday Louis Dean did the beauty shop/lunch run with Mother so it had been two WEEKS since I had seen her!! I told her it was MY treat for lunch today and then we would go to Target if she felt like it. She was excited!! I had to stop at the bank which is very close to the salon and you should have seen her face when she thought I was taking her to the In 'N Out Burger place for lunch!
I assured her it was the BANK I was going to.......the ONE drive serves BOTH establishments!
She said, "Thank GOD!!!!! That's AWFUL!!!!!"
IHOP was our choice which was handy since it is very near Target.
She approved the pic above......
She did NOT approve of THIS one to be on Facebook!! However, she didn't say I couldn't use it on the BLOG!!! I like this one BETTER!
Do you see the white 'earbuds' she is wearing?
Deanie ordered her a 'Pocket Talker' and I have no idea
how that works except that she only wore the 'earbuds' today and left the THINGY at home!!!
Whatever! It makes her feel like she can HEAR better and therefore TALK better!!!
Mother has turned fragile in the last two weeks.
She uses her cane and has a hard time getting in and out of the car.
The shopping cart helps her and gives her something to lean on.
We had fun together today!
She followed me around as I picked up the last few things I need for the back to back parties this weekend. I also helped her get a lip liner that rolls up and doesn't require sharpening. She bought one last week at CVS with Louis Dean telling the clerk she needed an eyebrow pencil!!
When I left Mother's I headed to the Starbucks to meet Deanie!
My beautiful sister!
We split a Pumpkin scone and I had my VERY FIRST Spiced Pumpkin Latte of the season!
BOTH of my daughters saw this pic I posted on Facebook and were jealous!!!
They do love their Aunt Deanie!
We talked for two hours and it seemed like a few minutes!
I spent a couple of hours after I got home cleaning and preparing for the Ladies Party I am hosting tomorrow night. Our beloved neighbor, Stephanie, came over to see if I wanted to go for a walk. I talked her into sitting in the gazebo over a glass of wine instead! Louis Dean was taking a well deserved nap. After she left I went back to my cleaning and sewing and doing - or BUZZING as Louis Dean calls it!!! He is totally bummed that he missed seeing Stephanie!!! You know - she is the one he wanted to adopt as soon as he met her!!
Well, I have done as much work as I am going to do this day!
Now it's time to close this journal entry and join Louis Dean in our evening wine routine.
See that box beside him? That's a Wine Cube of Riesling.....one of my favorites!!
So, CHEERS to a lovely Friday night.....
wherever you are and whomever you're with!!!
