Keeping Busy

I have been trying to keep my hands busy and my mind occupied so I don't fret so much.  My dear Uncle passed away last Wednesday.  I will miss him.  He was always so good to me.  When I was very little I would go to visit him and the first thing I would want to do was make him pretty.  This consisted of using baby powder and a powder puff and covering him liberally with baby powder.  Now that is love is it not?





I put out a few bunnies to welcome spring.





Planted some yellow pansies by the front door to make me smile when I come home.



Also unloaded this truck load of mulch on to my flower beds.  We had several nice days in the 70's but  it is chilly and sprinkling this morning.

I am off to see my mother next week and see if I can find out if we can get her some help at least a couple of days a week.  She is in a great deal of pain and has trouble cooking and taking a bath.  My sister is flying from Alaska to meet me for a few days.  I haven't seen in her in six years so it will be nice to see her again.

May you find comfort in knowing that he is with Jesus, sweetie. God bless his soul.

Love the bun-bun's ... yup! spring is here!

Wow, that's a lot of mulch to be spread! I was so sorry to hear that your much loved uncle had passed away. At least he is at peace now, and you have those happy memories of him. It's never easy when someone we love passes away. Please accept my condolences and a hug!

It's going to be nice to see your sister. So sorry about your uncle. Can't believe he let you do that to him, that was love. Hope you can find some help for your mom. When I went to Florida I had seen my brother and it had been at least 10 years. Thanks for stopping over today. My next phone will be a Droid (maybe) and I will get GPS on it but that's not in the near future. Enjoy the rest of your week.

So glad you got pansies, for your door way. They are sweet and cheery flowers.

Best of luck with all you have going on in your life, now.

Gentle hugs......

Those are good memories you have of your Uncle! They will keep him alive in your heart (and thank you for sharing them).

I hope you and your sister find the best solution for your mother -- she (and you) are at a difficult time. And although some of us have already been through it, nobody can really help because each person is so different. I have been thinking of you since your last post and will continue to do so.

Keep on taking care of yourself too.
