An update on my mom. She has now returned to the nursing home and is more awake but still seems like her mind is in slow motion. Her mind seems to be taking so long to process information and being the perfectionist she always was, everything is very time consuming. She refused to change into her night clothes to rest because she was going home and then to the casino and would put her night clothes on when it was time for bed! It was evening by then and she was in Sundowner's mode. The nurse told me that was good because she is somewhat back to normal. However, after taking care of her all week and now her fighting against me, I broke down into tears. I'm not sure if this event has triggered a next phase of her Ahlzheimer's/Dementia. She doesn't remember that she just got out of the hospital so her mind isn't telling her she is weak and she tries to get up like normal. I just know she is going to hurt herself but I will drive myself crazy worrying about it.
Thank you all for your support and prayers. I am happy to be home now and posting again. Even if it is just outdoor pictures!! Thought I would show you how much my flowers have grown!! I love these hanging baskets I made with the sweet potato vine!
I always wanted a bell to ring to call the family to supper! I have used it rarely because my boys would rather be in the house playing games than outside playing!! What a change in generations!
I planted these marigold seeds and didn't think they would take off like this!! The clematis vine is just going crazy! My roses just didn't come back this year so we are going to pull them out soon. How sad....
Here I have my pots that are in front of the porch. I am thrilled with how they are doing! On another post, a blogger called them thrillers, fillers and spillers!!! I like that! This weekend we are cleaning and staining the deck and front porch. I will take pictures after it is completed!!
Here is where I need help!! These boxwood shrubs weren't trimmed like they should have been and after 15 years are now overgrown! We are going to pull them out and plant something new but I'm not sure what to replace there.
I thought my blogger friends would have some ideas for me!!
Here we have the wishing well that will be getting some stain this weekend! Love the vine hanging down! The snapdragons aren't doing as well as I hoped there but you can see some of them!
These are some impatiens and begonias that are beginning to spread out!
This is where I like to sit and drink my coffee in the morning when I'm not in front of this computer blogging!!! I made the pillows from double sided napkins and the cushion is just a curtain that I sewed up. I want a real cushion but this works for now!!
I painted and distressed the little table and added a few items I found around the house. I put a yellow bug light in the lamp and at night it makes a nice warm glow! Cute little bird items from Michaels for $1.50 each!!
I also placed a birds nest I found as I think they are amazing creations of nature! If I can keep the birds from making a nest in my hanging plants, I would be much happier!
I am linking to A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday so please check back to the others who have posted!!
