Happy St. Patrick’s Day ♥
Huge celebration in … Butte America …first time in years that
is on a Friday and a weekend… St. Patrick’s Day …preparing for crowds of revelers, even transferring inmates from the jail to make room for people having too much “fun” LOL
population in Butte is (per capita) more than Irish ! They say it’s true :) Boston Went to the VA this morning for GPa’s eye doc follow up…
…while we were there a man in the waiting room was totally unresponsive to a nurse and soon all of the docs from ER ran to help him and half a dozen medical people came to his rescue and took him to the ER. Hope he is okay. Prayed for him.
Loving the beautiful tulips Cathy gave me…interesting colors of pale
GPa said we can plant the bulbs. peach, orange, pink. Happy that my sister is enjoying her new wall tv :)
Spring is just around the corner ♥
Happy Pi Day!
Bella’s 1st birthday :)
Earthquakes, 3.4…loud bangs, dishes rattling….
……Marysville, Helena, Clancy, Deer Lodge, Avon, Butte…oh my
Family milestone birthday celebration…
…Silver Star…salmon, rib eye, yummy :)
Just saw this….The way we think creates our life experiences.
Grateful for my loving family
A day with Cathy…she makes me feel alive!
Made in Montana Show…about 200 booths…interesting crafts from so many imaginations…
We waited in line for 45 min., outside the building (thank goodness it was about 35 degrees and sunny)…fire codes only allowed certain number……then were inside for several hours…
10,000 people were expected which is unusual for MT….we felt like we were in “the big city” LOL….we were blessed to be able to park near the entrance.
Lunch at Benny’s Bistro…jazz music…Madeline cookies with chef’s recipe from France, yummy!
Welcome call from my beloved Granddaughter….another alive feeling!
David in town for several days checking on his new home progress…hooray!
GPa remembered to set the clocks ahead :)
Harry is our 88 yr. old neighbor, kind, nice, tall Norwegian…
…keeps his lawn and yard so neat
An avid Vikings NFL fan and the only person who was allowed by GPa (an avid GBPackers fan) to come into our home wearing his Vikings jacket LOL :)
Would come here and ask what day it was about 4 times a day and would I write it down for him
Helped Harry with his bill paying, bookkeeping, grocery shopping
Realized he has progressive dementia
His family came to help and the VA also helped
Remembering with a smile the huge hug we exchanged when he was last home, when he recognized me…mornings are a good time for him :)
He is in a very nice nursing home now….we will be visiting him (mornings:)
Thankful for our abundant Blessings of good people in our lives.
Happy Valentines Day ♥♥
Observing many men, young and sold, selecting flowers, candy, balloons…
Told one young man that it didn’t matter what he selected, she will love it because it came from him
A beautiful sunny and warm day!
Smiles and more smiles everywhere we went :)
Enjoy your special day ♥
We see more smiles in Feb., especially as Valentines Day approaches ♥
