I'm back

I'm coming back to the blog scene! Life got a little overwhelming. John's mom was falling a lot and quite limited in her moving about because of leg edema, so I was sort of living 2 separate lives at her house and mine. Makes me wonder about those guys who are secretly married to 2 women and have 2 lives.

Jane is going to an assisted living place on Monday for a few weeks to see if they can do something about getting her legs smaller. And there will be people right there to pick her up if she falls. Amazingly, she hasn't been hurt with all her tipping over. One day she even put her head thru the bedroom wall. It got no bump, and wasn't sore at all. Hardheaded?

And I'm so excited.....WE'RE GOING TO FLORIDA!!!!

We left at 6:30 this morning with my sister and her husband. After 12 hours on the road we are in Clarksville, TN. It is sleeting here and sposed to snow during the night. I was hoping to break out the sandals tomorrow ;( Maybe by the end of the day. This is what we left.
Illinois is flat and boring. We saw lots of this.
And this.
Quite a few wind farms. And we saw a couple oil wells.

Viv's getting married!

This is Matt's Grandma Viv. She is such a great lady! I love her sense of humor and how loving she is. Her husband of many years died a few years ago and she is now getting married again at 81 or 82. I got to go to her bachelorette party last night. I always enjoy being with that family--they are so so fun! It was a surprise--good thing she didn't have a heart attack. It was a good time!

More aprons

The Super Bowl is over. We watched even tho we're not big fans. I sewed a little amid watching.

It was a mellow day starting with nursery duty at church. I was feeling a bit bad cuz I am fighting off a cold and thot maybe I shouldn't spread it to kids, but I needn't have worried....All but one kid had snot and rattly chests. Enjoyed a Sunday paper and was excited to get 40% off coupons for both Hobby Lobby and Michaels!! John and I took a drive during sunset time--beautiful sky! "Red sky at night...sailor's delight". Tomorrow should be delightful. Spring is in the air.
