Well, it is snowing.  That is better than the ice that was coming down this morning.  I hope that tomorrow will be somewhat better as I need to get out to see Mom!!  Between having the crud that has been bothering Iowa City (it lasts ~ 2/3 weeks) so I've not been out to Lantern Park.  I know she is OK because they would have called me if anything was wrong, but I need to see her for myself.

Well, I decided that I need to bring this blog back up to date.

Mom is still doing OK, she is now at a nursing home, Lantern Park.  She seems to be pretty happy there.  I try to get there at least several days a week (at least partly to fill the bird feeders ;-) that are outside her window.

I'm trying to get more active and lose some weight.  Since last November I've lost 20 pounds and am working on 10 more.  I'm also getting more active in other ways.  I've taken over as the chair of the Altar Guild at church (I may have been crazy) and I'm taking a knitting class to get doing more advanced knitting.

I'm borrowing this from another blog--we will see if I can keep it up ;-)   Thirty days of Thanks.

Nov. 1 - Mom is still here, sleeping a lot, but knows me when I come to visit her.

Strange Friday

Last Saturday was a strange mix of emotions. I went to the memorial service for a friend who had a fairly long and full life but died much too young for those who knew and loved her. At about the time I was heading for home--my nephew's wife gave birth to their first child. Emily Jean joins her two brothers and is my mom's first great grandchild (the boys came with their mom to make my nephew now the proud father of three).
