Puttering Around the Home

Butterfly and Orchids

My Father is back home with us again. Both my parents live with us, but Mother is in another state caring for my sister who has been in and out of the hospital. Mom and Dad have been gone for several weeks. Dad came back to get some things settled and take a break. It is nice to have some life back in their section of our house!

Dad is normally working around the property or puttering in the garage. He always has a project to do. He is 70 years old, but as busy as ever. I visited with him yesterday. I sat and sewed while we caught up on the family news.

Today, it is very quiet. I did some housework this morning and am now puttering around the house. I want to bake cookies. I am not sure if I have the energy, but I will try to do it later. I am so worn out lately. There has been a lot of stress and worry in this house. I need to bring back some cheer and rainbows! Maybe cookies will be just the thing?

The other day, Amy and John went around the property and picked flowers. They put them in a pretty vase on the dining room table. It looks lovely.I think the most imporant thing, to remain cheerful at home, is to do your regular chores and just talk and enjoy being together.

I think I will play a game of cards with the children later this afternoon. In the south, our family used to play cards every night, and drink Dr. Pepper. Those were fun summer evenings and created happy memories.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
