Rita's Ramblings: a basically house-bound woman in Fargo, North Dakota blogging for friends, family, and anybody who finds it interesting. I talk about art or craft projects, my grandsons (Ian and Liam), the weather, movies, books, health, and whatever happens to be going on in my life. Welcome!

September 21, 2020 Monday- 11:30am
I've still been feeling a bit withdrawn and not like talking...but in a good way, I think. Still feeling calmer and less stressed, I guess. Just been on a resting and healing retreat...peeking my head out from under the porch. ;) Been catching up on letters (finally), making soup, doing laundry...nothing extra really.
I went to McFamily's for a visit on Tuesday and then to the clinic for a blood pressure check on Thursday. Exposure...so won't be visiting McFamily for quite a while because we are doing Caroline (cleaning at my place tomorrow) and Costco (Leah doing grocery shopping on Wednesday) and will quarantine for a couple weeks after that. This month Dagan's work decided to pass on adding another 1/4 of the workforce at the office. Covid on the rise here, so we are glad he can still work from home and go in after hours to fix computers. :)
I called my mom around 4pm on Friday and she was in an ambulance! On her way to the hospital because of the swelling in her legs again. But they let her go home to her apartment this time instead of keeping her overnight. I'm sure because she is now on assisted living there--so she has a nurse and others in and out to check on her and they take care of her pills, etc. I am soooo glad she is where she is and not down in Florida all alone. I talked to her again on Saturday and she is happy they have some new sports on. She can't see or hear well enough to follow a movie but she can get the gist of basketball or football. Glad she's home again. :)
You may recall I forgot to get pictures of the partridges last week...well, it must have been in the back of my mind this week as it is the only pictures I took!
I'm not sure if I have one big group or two but they are here every day...usually more than once. I have been sweeping into the grass when I clean off the patio and they love to search for the few seeds (preferred over the cracked corn in the mix that they all eat last--lol!).
I forgot to take a single picture when I was over visiting McFamily. Leah forgot to send me pictures of Ian's "classroom" now with the little additions. I know they were busy planting more trees this weekend, though. Just one of those busy weeks over there. Not sure how mine felt busy and flew by, but it did. :)
Very short blog this week. I know--you're shocked--ROFL! Till next week... **** "An act of love that fails is just as much a part of the divine life as an act of love that succeeds, for love is measured by its own fullness, not by its reception." Harold Loukes
