Bright and early I bounded off to Around 9:00 AM this cloudy, foggy morning, I drove to Walgreen's to get Don some medication for the miserable cold he has. Then gathered up the laundry and we headed over to Mama Trudy's.
She's doing pretty good... blood pressure in the normal range for her and fewer dizzy spells. Praise the Lord.
She showed me a few of her quilt projects. This is what she calls her "sampler" quilt top. There's not one single square alike. I think it is beautiful. This is a throw she's making our of fleece & flannel random pieces. Here's a denim throw that she's finished. Her next project may be flower applique squares pieced together in whatever fashion she designs. Mama Trudy does such beautiful work. I don't know how many quilt tops she has made, but it's a bunch and she's already given away a lot to family and friends.
Don & I went to mail a package for Mama and it was really foggy. Clifford had to navigate. Guess what university is in this town? Boomer Sooner! When Lydia and Blaine got out of school LaNae brought them over to the Quantum to see us. We also got to see Ginger for the first time and she promptly pooped in the floor the first time we weren't paying any attention to her. She's a Daschund and Min-Pin mix. Isn't that a cute face? You know, you just have to let all that craziness loose after being cooped up in school all day long. Ginger seems a little concerned about Lydia. Of course, the brownies I shared with them probably contributed. LaNae announced that she made two B's and one A this past semester. Way to go, Chica!! She's now waiting to find out if she's been accepted into the OU School of Nursing. Why does the flash make peoples' eyes red and dogs' eyes green? We watched a Christmas CD that Mike created of their family to record their year in pictures. It's really cool with Christmas music and everything.
After the kids left, I went back over to Mama Trudy's to finish the laundry and play Mexican Train with her. She won. Actually, we didn't finish the game as I wanted to get back home with Don's hamburger and strawberry milkshake. Is that good-cold-fighting-food?
Tomorrow night is the combined birthday party for Blaine & Lydia. I'm sure praying Don feels better in the morning and good enough to go to their party.
Blessings to all from Norman, Oklahoma.
