Father's Day Weekend

What a whirlwind of a weekend.  I got to spend some time working in the yard on Saturday and it was enjoyable.  I haven't been able to do much outside in awhile so I really enjoyed getting in the dirt.  We had our front flower bed weeded and new mulch and paver border put in and it really looks nice.  I really like the way it turned out.  I purchased some flower and filled the window boxes and they look really good.

Sunday, my daughter, her husband and my great niece Sophie came to Mike's and we tackled the yard and the inside of the house.  Sophie was a great worker and she and I cleaned inside and talked, talked, talked while Julie and Larry tackle the underbrush in the front yard.  Ron kept Mike company inside.

I hired Sophie to spend one day a week with Mike this summer.  She's going to do some light house keeping, help him with lunch, and just keep him company from 10am - 4pm one day a week.  She's planning on getting a checkerboard and getting him to play some games.  I really hope it works out.  It will give her some money for school and it will really help me out this summer.   

We are checking on a new independent living apartment here in town for 62 and over that is income based.  I think it would be a perfect transition if we are unable to get Mike in a nursing home at this time.   Ron is calling about it this morning to see if there is a waiting list and get information on the requirements etc.

Now I'm back to work so I can sit down for awhile..........
