My husband and I have been wanting to go for a hike forever but every time we've been at the cabin, there have been issues relating to the mom to make it impossible.
Today we decided was the day we were going. We hiked about 7 miles to these beautiful falls called Tumalo Falls.
But first you have to enjoy this sign we saw along the trail! I think it's a life lesson: look, listen and smile!!
Max was a real trooper. he did wade into the creek once which was a bit deeper than we thought but he managed to scamper out. He will need to be groomed. Dusty!!
I have done a little sewing this week and made my May mini! I used 2" bow ties that I made years ago and had collected in a zip lock baggie. There are still many more but I'm happy with how this turned out. Now just need to quilt it
Next project is to go back to the triangle gatherings and work on my setting, which I'm still stumped on. I suppose I could use only some of the 98 blocks in a quilt and use a couple of different settings. What a concept!!
My mom is not doing great. I was told on Thursday that she wandered away from the facility and got lost. She got it into her head that she had to go to the Dollar Store down the street (mind you, this street is a VERY busy thoroughfare!). She doesn't believe that she got lost, denies getting confused and continues to lament her loss of independence (I completely understand but still... she had no alternatives!) Oh and the first trip she made to the Dollar Store was after she went to Ace Hardware and got a complete stranger to give her a ride to the Dollar Store (no idea why...).
Things are not looking great. I did give her an id bracelet I'd ordered for her, just in case she wanders off again. I am keeping my fingers crossed that she remembers that she shouldn't go out the front door. It's still terribly sad, as I'm sure so many of you know from personal experience. Getting old (she's 90) is tough and dementia is even more frustrating. Thanks for listening...
Back to my machine!
