Good morning to you! Its another busy morning here at Homemaking Dreams. There are lots of things going on today and coming up this Fall.
"I'm Thinking Fall!"
Today my mother will be moved to another room in the adjacent nursing home. The reason is that the entire hall she has been living on is going to be renovated. The nursing home is an old one and really does need updating, but its hard for her to have to get used to new people and places. Even though her current room needs some work, she is fine with it! She doesn't have a choice, so today we move. I cleaned and organized her things Saturday in preparation for moving. The nursing home will take care of actually moving things, but we will need to get everything straightened out. She will also have a roommate for the first time, so this may be interesting.
My mother's health has not improved and she struggles daily with just plain old not feeling well, going to dialysis, having minor surgeries and more. You know how every time you go to the hospital, they send home a pink plastic dishpan with you? When I cleaned Mama's room Saturday I counted nine of them! So, yes, its been a tough several months for my Mama.
Here's a picture of just a couple of my African Violets blooming their hearts out. I have too many plants. It will only get worse when winter comes and I will need to move a bunch inside. I need to start finding homes for some of them now I guess.
But, if you look closely you will see a couple of African Violet leaves rooting! Man, that will mean more plants soon. I think some nurses at the nursing home might like some...... hmmmm
I'm planning for fall already. I want to put out my few fall things as soon as possible, probably gradually in August. I just gotta remember where the "Fall" box is! I don't have a lot of fall decorations, but there is a table runner, a few plates and a wreath, etc. It will soon be time to introduce the darker less Springy/Summery colors.
Have a great July 25, 2012!
