I will comment on the next two photos. The residents planted tomatoes a week or so ago in this planter. One of the residents saw my painting from inside and she thought the tomatoes had already grown to the top of the fence! I had planned to work on this for 3 days, but it took 4 instead. I am sore from bending, stooping, reaching, etc..... I'm exhausted and don't have any sewing projects to do right away, so I am going to take a short break from posting. I'll still try to get on once a day to read your blogs and make comments, though. We've had so much going on since my husband's mom first broke her hip, had surgery, spent time in the nursing home, came home, and then passed away, that I am mentally tired and just need some time to relax and do little thinking. On top of all that I've been sick with sinus stuff!! I have a couple of good books to read, a deck to sit on, and flowers to enjoy, so that is just what I'm going to do.
I am a grandmommma who loves to sew. I also love any creative outlet that I can express myself in, such as painting, drawing, sherenshnitte, and writing. I am the "baby girl" of my mother who is in a nursing home. I wish I could get into her head to understand what is going on in there sometimes. I will reflect upon my observations, therefore, using this as a therapy of sorts for myself.
