This last week has been a bit hectic, I traveled down to North Texas to help take care of my mom. My sister has been taking care/watching her, but needed to go out of town for her work. I hadn’t mentioned it before in posts, but our Mom had surgery a week after my Dad passed away. She’s been recovering from this surgery and dealing with slight complications. I ended up staying in Texas through Friday afternoon, when my sister returned from her business trip.
I have to say, Mom seems to be recovering quite well. In fact, one night Mom and I were able to go out to eat, and enjoy a nice steak dinner together. Get this…..she drove to the restaurant!!! This is a really good sign toward her recovery. We’re giving Mom a big shout out……………..Love you Mom!!!
Mom of course sent me home with a sweet gift; it was one of those Ninja blenders. Talk about perfect timing, my blender is a true piece of $%*&@ and I was going to look for a new one. Now I don’t have too :-)
This weekend, Bulldog Man and I woke early on Saturday to go fishing. We were up at the pond at 6:20AM, the temperature was in the low 30’s and the breeze was downright cold. Everyone fishing off the embankments had hard hits on their lines, but didn’t catch one fish. Bulldog Man and I decided to pack it up after staying 3 hours.
Because we were fishing not too far from Oklahoma State University, we decided to visit the Farmers Market, sponsored and held at the University. All items sold at the market are Oklahoma made, grown, or raised. The University adheres to a strictly “Oklahoma Only” market.
Items the farmers would bring into this market; meats, cheeses, dairy items, herbs (fresh and dried), vegetables (dried, fresh, and still in dirt), crocheted and knitted items, tinctures, lotions, soaps, leather products, homemade bakery items, and handmade books.
Bulldog Man and I picked up a few things and supported a few of our local farmers. Fresh milk, eggs, cheese, asparagus, tomato, honey, spices and berries (dried), a solid lotion bar, some potted broccoli, and dish cloths.
I have a new sign spring is around the corner; new leaves on a rose bush outside our bathroom window.
How was your weekend?
