It seems like there has been a lot going on these last few days-actually, just usual farm stuff, I have not left town in four days which maybe a record of sorts for me. I have enjoyed having this quiet week to rest, piddle around the place and get some chores done.
I have been to my mom’s assisted living place every day. Maybe it is just seeing her daily again after missing days right after surgery, but she seems brighter and happier to me. I had hired a sitter to come between 4-6 pm each day to get her to dinner and back. Each day when I get there she has on jewelry and today even had earrings on. She is very proud of her manicure we got the other day.
Yesterday, she left me behind again as the home was having an Elvis impersonator in the dining room. She practically dragged me down the hall. She hugged me goodbye and was groovin’ to the music as I left. He really was pretty good.
Ally, Jordyn and Kendyll came down tonight for their weekly horse back lesson. Jordyn is still reluctant to trot but is getting much better with the turning, stopping and riding on her own. I love seeing Ally ride. She was always a beautiful rider and it is good to see Mickey getting a work-out. Feather, especially being only six, is a saint with Jordyn. My shoulder restricts my typing ability so I am just going to let the pictures tell the rest of the story tonight.
