We moved my sister into an assisted living home, she just can't live alone anymore. We've been talking about it for some time but when the time finally came it was really hard to do. It was a very stressful day for all of us except her. She seems so unaware of what is happening to her, which is a good thing. She is settling in nicely, but very confused. She has a cute little apartment that is just right for her and the assistance she needs. Hopefully this will work, she isn't quite ready for memory care yet but needs daily assistance to do most things. It sure makes you look at your own mortality. I hope I have the where with all to not leave these difficult decisions to my kids.
On a brighter note, Easter. The kids all came over for Sunday brunch. I had some fun hiding Easter eggs in the back yard for my grandsons. Here's a pix of them with their Dad after finding stick on mustaches in their eggs, along with the usual array of candy and stuff. We had a great day, the sun even shined on us.
I bought a new camera finally, just a little Sony point and shoot. But it has 4 times the pixel as my old camera and should get better detail and close ups. But I'm finding that it wasn't just the camera that was the problem, the photographer needs help.
My kitchen garden window and art wall in the family room.
Check these out, the one on the left I call my adventure wall. Places I've been, things I've done. Look close at the pix to the right, you'll see me on the trapeze and getting ready to sky dive.
And my work space. Pretty cluttered right now.
In the corner, notice the picture above the clutter, a very old pix of my sibs, me not included. I didn't come along for a long time after this shot was taken. They were so cute when they were little.
And on my work desk, since this is Wednesday I thought I'd join in WOYWW. I call this collage "Luck". I really like working with Asian themed pieces.
Some new additions to my stash and my first punch. ihanna used one of these round corner punches on her postcards, I thought it was so cool I had to have one. It makes a nice finish to postcards.
My recycling effort, tea bags and cigar bands. Cheap additions to my stash. I'm anxious to use the cigar bands. I almost bought some at a flea market recently, fortunately I didn't have enough cash on me for everything I wanted so didn't get them. This is even better, my daughters boyfriend is saving them for me. Yeah, freebies are always good.
I need to practice with the camera, lots of different settings to experiment with. One thing I discovered, I had to compress the pictures to get them to download for this post. At least that was an easy fix.
Enough for today. Thanks for letting me share a little bit of me.
Have a great day.
