I'm really falling behind on everything today. I haven't had time to even go to the class today and see what is happening. My sons are coming later this weekend to do a lot of house things that I can't do.  I've been saving things that need done and making a list!! So I need to get out to the hardware store and pick up a lot of things they will need. They will caulk, replace weather stripping, dig out a dead bush, replace light bulbs and many other things.

Today is our 47th wedding anniversary. The time truly has gone by so fast that it's hard to believe it's been that long. I won't say anything to hubby because he will feel bad that he didn't know and he will be upset. Dementia just chips away at every part of the person and I can see his cognitive thinking has really declined lately. I wish I could help but there is just no answer.

My cards today are from yesterdays class. Other than the fact my balloon is not round (!) I am pleased with the results. Be kind to one another.

  2. Who said balloons are round.!! these look the perfect shape to me. Too much blowing up and they go and burst on you!!! Have just joined the class today and am so far behind will meet you at the end of the course. Will probably do it in my own time now as the classes are there for ever and a day afterwards.
    Your doing so well. Keep it up. hugs Mrs a.

  3. P.s forgot to say have quality time with your sons. Our son is coming down tonight to sort out computer issues out. My ipad won't link up to the home computer and our anti virus ware is up the spout as well as Skype. All 2 second jobs for him as he is an IT geek but totally off the rictor scale for us .
    I have chocklit cake waiting for him!!!!!! hugs Mrs a.

  4. Wishing you a happy anniversary, Brenda. Dementia is such a horrible disease. I've had 2 cases my last 2 days at work. I admire you--living with it every day & knowing not to say anything about the anniversary so he won't feel bad. I hope you have a wonderful time with your sons while they take care of some things for you. Your cards are so pretty with the soft colors & I especially like the balloons! Hugs, Greta

  5. Happy Anniversary Brenda. In his heart - he knows. And that's what matters. Love never forgets. So big hug for you & DH too. 47 years is a good milestone. I'm so glad your boys are coming to give a hand with some chores, and you're blessed to have sons who are willing to do such things. Loved your cards..you're doing great with the w/c class. I've managed to see through Day 2 videos. Other things get in the way and had a couple of 'punk' days. Just getting to feel better today. TFS & Hugs.

You are really getting the hang of this water coloring Brenda!! Now not all balloons are round my friend, your yellow balloon is the perfect shape to me!! Hugs
