I’m back from Texas, arrived home last night. After spending 4 days in Texas, I’m happy to be home to be able to sleep in my own bed. Don’t get me wrong, I loved being in Texas to take care of my Dad (cancer patient) while my sister had to go out of town for work. Yes, Mom was there to help Dad, but Mom doesn’t have the strength to lift and move my Dad around; that’s where my sister and I come in to help. The visit was nice, and at times stressful. See Dad is eating well, drinking the doctor prescribed Boost (it has more protein in it than the one you buy at the store) but he hates drinking water. Water is what is going to hydrate him and help with his blood pressure and heart rate. It helps with the constant drowsiness, the brain fog, energy and overall health. But to tell that to a man who hates water is like talking to a wall. When Dad’s Physical Therapist came in and took his blood pressure (which was high) and his heart rate (which was low), it was obvious he was not drinking the required water. The Physical Therapist did exactly what I did to get him to drink and what do you know……..Dad listened to the Therapist and drank his water. Talk about being bull headed………now you know where I get my um………bullheadedness from…………..my Dad!!!!!! I guess you could say like father, like daughter…………….LOL!!!!!!!!
When Dad took a nap, I stayed close by, but was able to take pictures of the sky for several of my blogger friends (Kymber, Jambaloney, and Helga). I also took several pictures of the wild flowers and flowers around my parent’s home.

All I can think about is sleeping in my own bed and getting
rid of this rental car!!!
Now back at home, I have so many things to do this weekend. Back up my blog, laundry, cleaning, some home cooking, work on the property weeding, and planting more herbs and beans. And most of all get some good quality sleep.
What are your plans this weekend?
