Weeks go By ❤Part 1

 Hi Friends,
I've been back and running! Week at mom's was fun and hard all at the same time. I met my mom's lovely caregiver. We had a fun day all together and even had lunch out at a nice place. Did a little shopping at my favorite store, Paper Source! Once again I had to buy a few cutsie things. It's just a must!

Right when I got back, it was off to MA. to attend ABby's 6th birthday party with 19 kids. Parents rented a room at the Town Hall. We decorated with Nannie's bunting for Abby and many great unicorn and dinosaur themes. Abby thought of the boys too!!! She is very thoughtful and a very good host! I will share some pictures later.

But first I will finish telling you about this week. So after the party I headed home again, a 2.5 hour ride, was home by dinner. My daughter Amy came up because she had Monday off, due to Patriots Day and it is also the Boston Marathon Day. IT was a very warm HOT day for the runners. So Amy and played all day shopping, chatting, eating, walking and laughing! IT's always a great day when Amy around. She left at dinnertime to get home in time to unwind before work the next day. I had work on Tuesday, but then it got cancelled, so a day of regrouping before picking up Abby for the week. So that's what I have been up to. Abby is here and we have had lots of fun. I will share these pictures too. Mommy and daddy and Lizzy pick up Abby today but will stay over to visit. I'm planning a lasagna dinner. (always a crowd pleaser)

So here are a few photos of visiting mom

                                                                       Spring at mom's

As per Mom, her two favorite things, Gretel and her car. She loves them both, but she hasn't driven for 6 months and I don't think she will again. (for safety sake)

Went to that lovely nursery and restaurant for lunch. I have to use all my persuasive skills to get mom out of the house, but once she does she starts to feel better. I try so hard to stimulate her and bring a smile. She has a lovely smile!

                                                           See what I mean :  )   So sweet!

A Friend and also caregiver down the street wanted to learn how to crochet so I thought a dishcloth would be the ticket for an easy project. I'm not the best teacher because I'm left handed. Gail did great though and I suggested she look at some tutorials on her computer also. This is my end result, it was fun and fast and easy. Gail bought a book, so she can also learn to read patterns.

                                           Lots of lovely designs, Annie's Attic by Darla Sims

      I will end with this lovely photo and the chair I would love to have. This nursery is just so "top of the line". I wish it were close by, but it is always such a treat to visit. Always a special time!!!

I will come back with the birthday details and so much more. Have a lovely weekend. Thanks so much for stopping in and visiting me in my little world surrounded by the whole world of Blogland!

So happy to be back and see you all,  xoRobin❤
