Home Again, Home Again

It's always good to get back home. I was really missing mom something terrible and was feeling rather guilty by being away so long. I awoke early and ran over and picked up two dozen cupcakes for all the nurses at the nursing facility. Yum. They are a great lot, and I don't know how they do it. But I am so thankful they do and wanted to show our appreciation, somehow. I was SO tempted to grab some for us, but I didn't listen to that little voice in my head (stomach!).

I also picked up some Easter goodies for mom and was so happy to see her up and walking with her physical therapist when I arrived. She had a walker in front of her and the therapist had a belt around her in case she needed a little help. But she was doing great! In actuality, mom's therapist had called me yesterday and told me she was up and walking a little. What great news. Since Sherrie had been there every day in my absence, I'm not quite sure she recognized me at first. But she was happy to see me, whoever I was to her. Here, she is still getting her bearings with me. I stayed with her for several hours, while she ate her lunch and we sat and watched a little TV. She then wanted to lie down. I'm sure the walking wears her out.

I then came home and started decorating for Easter. Nothing like waiting til the last minute, eh?
I think I enjoy decorating for Easter as much as I do for Christmas.

The teenager is home from college for the weekend and it's nice having him around. He has to head back early tomorrow (in order to watch a film for English--what's up with that???? It's Easter weekend!!) so I think we'll go out and have dim-sum together before he leaves. Do you think I prepared an Easter dinner? Nope. Perhaps I can get myself in gear for Ukrainian Easter next week. Let's hope.

The kid's friend is in from Los Angeles. Unfortunately, I missed seeing his mom before she flew back this morning. Sorry I missed you Edi. Miss you.

Hope all are enjoying this beautiful weekend.

I'm so with you about enjoying decorating as much for Easter as Christmas -- totally different in style and feeling, and by Easter,I'm ready for a good decorating spree!

Loved the cupcake photo -- that's what I made for Easter dessert. What a nice thing to do for the nurses! Your mom looks so happy! What a treasure trove of beautiful photos you have of her! Happy Day after!
