I am still here. Just have been so busy with soap orders. Wanting to get everyone orders out in time for Christmas. I usually have my trees up and house decorated by now and I have nothing done. We had a nice Thanksgiving dinner. William made it home and we had our two new farmhands over to eat with us. It takes time and patience to teach them how to feed and milk and I have little of both at the moment. The kitchen is still a war zone and I had to do battle in it to cook Thanksgiving dinner. I almost want to take a stick of dynamite to it and just finish it off for good. The cabinets are almost done. The microwave shelf above the stove needs painting. Where you see the canisters is where I hope my shelves get built tomorrow. Also have shelves waiting to be built up another wall. Top of my counters need to be sanded and finished. Floor needs to be put down and alot of small things. I go behind Wayne putting things away where he finishes. He knows I will have a overflowing house of guest in 3 weeks and needs to work fast . I am stressing it won't get done.
Fran has fallen twice at the nursing home. They had a bed alarm that would go off if she tried to climb over the rails so she got smart and scooted to the bottom of the bed to get out. Her legs are still weak so she can't stand alone very long. She fell and hit her head so they put a body alarm on her and now when she moves in bed it goes off all the time. She is upset and so am I. I offered to bring her here and take care of her but they want to give it another week there and then take her home and have home health come help her. William and I plan on going to see her tomorrow or the next day. Her daughter that lives in New Mexico is flying in Wednesday to help take care of her so maybe she will bring Fran home. Please keep her in your prayers. I am so afraid she is going to fall and break something. I promise to post more tomorrow and hopefully a more cheerful post. Have a great week and lets not forget to count our blessings no matter how small they may seem. The handswen sampler you see above the cabinet is the one I won from Rhonda Jean. She made it herself and was so kind to offer it as a give away on her blog. It gives me strength each time I look at it. I am so thankful I was the lucky winner! sorry the photo didn't turn out good. I should have turned off my flash.
