The weeks just fly by! Can you imagine it will soon be June?
Last week Saturday, I had my Wildtree party. It was a success! Many enjoyed the flavor of the foods you can make with the spice blends and the fact that it is all organic, no nuts, low in sugar and sodium, and not GMOs! My bff has booked a party for late July to make Freezer Meals. This is such a money saver and time saver!
Earlier in the week I stopped at the thrift store looking for capris. Mine are all too large! Since the doctor has taken me off one medication (Abilify), I have lost at least 15 pounds! I found two pair at the thrift store, but of course, one pair needs hemming. I have so much hemming to do! I should take one day a week just to catch up on all of it.
Wednesday, I almost forgot, I had a card class! We made tri-fold cards. I am glad that our instructor, Carolee, provided us with instructions to take home! (those of us with iphones took a picture of the instructions).
The week before I finished a card I had been working on for my nephew. It is called a box card for obvious reasons.
Thursday was just a gorgeous day, so my sister and I took that day to go to the cemeteries. There was our mom and dad, aunts and uncles, grandparents on both sides and our older brother and sister who both died before we were even born! The flowers were all on sale at Walmart, so it was a good reason to put flowers on all of their headstones! Mom thought once she was gone, it would be forgotten, but we will do it for her until we no longer can drive.
We visited our Aunt Caroline. She is so isolated in her little village! There is absolutely nothing there! Her daughter has to take her out of town to the doctor or store. Although she is 89, she still lives at home, and knows what pills to take and when. She just gets around slower now. It is no fun being the youngest left alive in the family. You rarely get visitors!
We ate at our favorite restaurant on the way home. It is a truck stop/diner and they have home made bread and pie!
Yesterday I had some training for the TRUST car. That is the car that is owned by our city and used at the Senior Center to take people to their appointments within the city. I enjoyed it, as you get to chat with several different people! The car is a Prius and I will have to get used to starting it with just a power button!
Today we are going to the Hamilton Wood Type Museum. They are having an open house.
Tomorrow is Stack Fest. They will demolish the last remnant of Hamilton Industries, once a foundation of our city. I have never seen an implosion before so I hope I get a good look. It is kind of sad to see our history blown up, as the smokestack, was an iconic symbol for our city.
(This photo was taken by a friend of mine. I couldn't take a better photo, that's for sure!)
The fountain is in the park, and now that the factory is gone, all you see is the smoke stack!
Have a great day, and go with God!
