Aoife is back home in Portland!! Here she is using her new skills of pushing a cart by herself.
Of course, she is adorable in her Irish nightwear and silky white hair and dimples!!
With my new extended sewing room, I have started having fun.
Pulling fabric is awesome. Putting it away, not so much.
I find it very, very difficult to depend on the good graces of others,
when my own family can no longer help.
My sister came for a visit today, which was wonderful. However, she cannot fix the broken things around here that my husband or son could fix. Handymen are scarce now-a-days and/or all booked up.
I am healing myself by talking...Some people try to fix me by diverting my pain into positive. Just listening to me is so therapeutic.( for me, that is:)..
I did get some awesome advice from Sherry.....Just Keep Swimming
I have tied my new little cart to my sewing machine before I load it up. I love it...
The latest excitement is a new lock for the front door that does not require a key.
Good for the kids, good for Grandma, just plain good.
To lock the door, just put your hand over the pad.
To unlock just put in the code. Wish I had done this years ago.
Six months after my husband died, we were robbed. CPI came that afternoon to see if we needed security. The kids and I were all so shocked, I signed up immediately. I never regretted it. They have these lock pads, though I am sure you can get them other places.
My hair is down my back again. My hairdresser broke her wrist in a wind gust on the Fourth of July. She offered to come by my driveway on Monday, her first day back.. I am one lucky old lady!!!!
I would not be surviving at all if it were not for such good people.
Paula...big, big, hug....sending the children all their school supplies from Amazon.
Kindness.....the good part of life.
