Another Busy Weekend

It was another busy weekend. My mom decided that she would like to come up for the weekend which is great and challenging at the same time. My mother has health and mental health issues so I always have to be more thoughtful and helpful. I love my mother dearly and she does the best she can but there are times that I wish she were healthier than what she is.

I took her out to the blueberry patch. (Check it out at ) I also twisted Caroline's are to have her meet us there. I got to introduce them both to picking blueberry's. It really is a cool thing. Caroline commented that it was a "Little House on the Prairieish". I ended up with 10lbs which will last about a year and goes great in pancakes, muffins, and breads. We have a loaf of blueberry banana nut bread on the counter as I type.

Cowboy was very good to my mother. He gave her the grand tour of all the changes we made to the house. He grilled a great supper for her--even fish just for her. He took us to garage sales with him. He washed and detailed her car. He treats her like he would his mom which is very comforting.

We were able to make it out to the golf course today. It was good to be out playing again. Didn't play to well but just blamed it on the eyes.

My eyes are still not back to normal. They are getting better but not quite back to right. This Friday will be three weeks which is what they advised at the time that they should be healed and I should be seeing normally. I don't have any pain but they do get dry and I have to use eye drops a lot.

What a good weekend that sounds like. I love all the things Cowboy did for your mom. :) Again he shows his "keeper" qualities!

Don't be impatient on the eyes. I don't know about the specifics, but I do know that every person has his/her healing and recovery time. :)

.....and you're back. I was beginning to think that maybe you did overdose on blueberries. :)

Thanks again for introducing me to the fun of picking blueberries. I do expect an invitation to go pick blackberries. Do you remember the lesson you gave me on sewing....yea I will probably need a couple cooking lessons as well.

It was good seeing your Mom and I love how good Cowboy treats her. He's such a good guy.

So glad you had a nice visit with your Mom and Cowboy treated her so well!

We picked blueberries yesterday, my sister has about a dozen bushes. Love them!
