About two weeks ago my hubby got so weak from High blood sugar that he couldn't get out of his lift chair. I had to call 911, they are getting to know us real well. Had them take him to the hospital and wanted to make sure they got that blood sugar down. I knew if would be a long haul. He spent 4 days there before being transported down here to the nursing home for rehab. Fortunately they have gotten his numbers down in the 100s.
So this beautiful arrangement on the kitchen table looks real good.
Yes, I am getting some very good nights sleep, trying to get relaxed and some things done here at home. Am only going to the nursing home once a day. even though it is less than two miles from here. I just have to have some time to myself and my online friends.
My daughter was up last weekend and we had a good visit and she would go in and spend lots of time with her Dad. She's having a good time with her very first class of special kindergarten students. Has gotten two of them reading.
One thing I have gotten done is moving some leaves from the front and out of the perennial garden at the back and this is what is blooming already
The first primroses . I wish all of them I've planted there would have grown like this. There is another couple plants in there that haven't started yet. You can see some leaves weren't taken away either. The light is the sun.
On the north side of the house I have two nice size Rhododendrons. But it looks like the deer got really hungry.
See that naked limb sticking down. There is a bud on the end. They are not suppose to like those leathery leaves. In fact they are like the mountain Laural, poisonous. But guess not this year. I had removed all the leaves that pile up under and around the bush Here's another view
and another naked limb. There is a couple other bushes in the garden at the back of the house that they eat some leaves off also. Those I don't care.
I have been trying to get some things done. Have completely finished the Chex Mixx quilt. That is the binding. Still need to make the label. We all sent in 3 inch square siggies which I will sew together and make a large label to sew on the back of the quilt but in the mean time the quilt is resting on hubby's bed
This is more of a closeup and the next one shows the whole quilt. I'm proud that I machine quilted this myself. But still like the hand quilted ones the best.
I'm trying to get my Christmas quilt finished so am spending a lot of time in my lounge chair watching TV in the living room. Watching the programs I want to watch. Like my soap in the afternoon. Right now I feel like a nap. Don't go up to the home till around five. They don't take the trays down to the ones that don't go to the dinning room until after everyone is served up there. He will not go down there to eat. Likes to watch his Mash at 5 till 7. So I am there for his supper to help but he has to eat by himself. I can't baby him like I did before. He has been standing up a bit more each day and says he's getting stronger. So we will see if he gets strong enough to come home. But I know I am going to have to have some help.
