Ok… here is a wrap-up ~~
One of the last mornings before vacation was over, I lamented to my mom about all the recipes I’d printed out to try that needed redone to go into my cookbook. Mom asked if I had a 3-hole punch and notebook. “I could do that!”
This only entertained her for 20 minutes but how wonderful to have this!! Sorted by categories, I had a new package of tabs that she labeled. A brand-new 3-ring binder. So easy! Why don’t we take 20 mins to do these things to make looking for recipes a bit easier? (and the cupboard to look a bit neater?) If your mom isn’t there wanting to help, I bet you have a child or grandchild to help you!
I’ve continued to print recipes and I save up only about 3 before I go punch the holes and add to my book. (…which now needs to grow!) And for right now, in this busy season of our lives, I’m OK that the pages aren’t all retyped and formatted the same! 🙂
I continued to sew and she had her knitting and a snack as the morning progressed. I have a master pattern (mostly) ready to make some tops and jackets. Hopefully, now I can get some clothes made even though I’m not there to tailor to her all the time.
A going-away lunch out with friends who wanted a chance to visit with my mom before she headed home.
Early the next morning, we met DBrother & DSIL at a parking lot to switch Mom’s seats and bags. (….ummmm – where did that tank top weather go???) DSIL was quite pleased with the new artwork coming to their house!
We all had good vacation time. They headed for a long drive home! I did a bit of shopping and then chatted with a NY sister on my drive home.
