Last September, we helped my 91 and 92-year-old in-laws move to an assisted living facility near us. It was easier to run errands for them, easier to visit them, easier to sleep well, knowing they were safely in a facility with help nearby if needed.

After a couple incidents and late night phone calls, it was recommended that MIL go to the nursing home. She and my FIL were in separate rooms for a week, but today we helped her move from the "memory unit" to sharing a room with her husband of nearly 70 years (anniversary next month). FIL asked that they be together. We have more errands ahead, helping to personalize their new room.
I had the joy of quilting with friends last weekend, and I'll be sewing with a daughter tomorrow, maybe on Sun too. Time with my sewing machine and quilting projects is the best way for me to de-stress, re-energize, and take a breath to get ready for the next week.
|working on 80 Mt. Trail blocks (will finish at 9")|
--a gold and rust lap/wheelchair quilt made from orphan blocks found at a garage sale
--working on 80 blocks for another Mountain Trail quilt, following instructions from Lori of Humble Quilts blog. Lori's blocks were little; mine will be 9" finished. GREAT way to use 2" strips I've been collecting.
--finished the top for February's "Small Quilt Club" selection. (see link on right side). I'm usually not a square quilt gal, so I added another row to the quilt made from 1800s repro fabric blocks.

Have a great weekend, and stay warm and safe, if you're in a cold part of the country.
