~a volunteer sunflower growing near the bird feeder~
It's been a busy time since I saw you last. Some of it a good
busy and some not so good.

My uncle fell and broke his hip Wednesday evening. His
surgery was on Friday as they had to get his blood
thickened before surgery. He was moved to a skilled care
facility yesterday for therapy and to recuperate. He is 86 years
of age and such a dear man. I hope he will be able to walk again.
My sweet aunt is not very well herself, and is trying
to visit him and is just worn out. Some decisions will soon
need to be made for the future, I'm sure. It's not easy to think
about for either one of them, as they have been independent
for so long.

I had lunch with an old friend that I haven't seen in quite
a while Saturday. We spent probably 3 hours visiting and that was
not enough time to catch up as we never run out of things to
We got together with several of BG's cousins Saturday evening.
One of the cousins lives in Kansas and we hadn't seen her in quite a while. We enjoyed a nice meal and heard some funny stories.
The past several days have just flown by in a busy blur and
Sunday was one of those days where I just crashed and
said that I wasn't going to do anything but rest. And
that is what I did.
~I cropped this photo and that's when I noticed the butterfly~
Our weather is going to be wonderful the next few days with
the temps in the 70's! My aunt doesn't need me today as
she has a ride to visit her husband, so I'm going to take
advantage of this cooler weather and pull weeds in my flower
gardens. How they manage to grow through the black mat
and mulch is beyond me!
Hope your week is off to a good start. I'll be visiting blogs
when I can, I have some catching up to do.
Happy Tuesday to you!
