My mother continues her decline. She is still in the little home we purchased for her after the big house was sold. She is nearly totally blind now and does have help in the house five days a week. She has begun to fall quite regularly and you know there is nothing like denial. She is quite certain that the reason she is falling is because of the cat.
I believe it is only a matter of time until she falls and breaks a bone and then she will have to move. I talk with her every day and she has days where she is really here and she has days when she is not quite all here. But, we are grateful to have one another and I am grateful to still have her here on the planet.
This has been a really long and brutal winter in Minnesota - we usually have some thaws that reduce the amount of snow we have on the ground - not so this year. We have so much snow and it has been below zero so many days - setting records everywhere.
I look forward to going to Yountville. Excited to see my Mom and excited to see the green and feel the sun. Long walks by the vineyards are in my future.
I am working on my final clients before sabbatical. It is an exciting time of life. New adventures just ahead. Next post, my darling doggie, Sierra - the new love of my life. Take care darling friends....there is much more to come.
