That's really interesting about the Amish in your area, parking beside their buggies, and helping the English with construction. I do know they are hard and honest workers and with a lot of them, can build a house pretty quick. Those are just a couple of reasons, out of many, of why I would love/rather live up north. There are so many differences in the way things look, are done, and the types of houses and buildings, atmosphere, etc., that I want to be around. I guess I developed a heart for up there through my dad and my grandparents, aunts, and uncles, who lived up there.
I'm glad you got to visit with your son and that they enjoyed the kittens. They didn't try to talk one away from you, lol? Sorry you didn't get to see your mom's friend.
You did get some great sales on those products - can't blame you at all for snapping them up!
You may have an "at-home" day today, but you have definitely given yourself plenty to do! Hope you get a lot done that you want. I worked on my classwork some today, cleaned one of the bathrooms, and then our pastor's mom and dad came over. His dad cuts Roddy's and Adam's hair, and his mom comes to visit me. I am starting to notice some more changes with her health - her mind is wandering more, including forgetting normal words for things (this week she called a car a green horse; then a few minutes later said car); and her mood will switch abruptly from calm to agitated. She's not done it at me, but to her dil, and some others. She always remembers my name, but will forget many regular people's names who are always around her. She's on stronger meds in the morning for her trembling/shaking - which helps her during the day/evening.
Plans for tomorrow are home and simple. They are grilling steaks for us, with potatoes and salad. I know I won't hear from the older son, but am so thankful my other 2 are here and are so supportive of Roddy and I. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day yourself. What are your plans?
