It sure was a crazy Sunday around here. Mom had complained that
she didn’t get any Valentine’s cookies or treats this year so I
went out to the store and bought a cake mix and fixed up some
cupcakes. Thank goodness Dunhan Hines has this new
snall mix that makes only a dozen. So I made cupcakes
and took them out to her at the tendercare. Sis and I had bought
her balloons and such, but SWEETS is what is always on her mind.
The staff was so surprised and also some of the residents.
We gave some to those residents who did not recieve
any visitors this year. Staff arranged small bags of
treats to those patients also, but this added to the fun.
When I got there she had recieved a piece of appple pie with
her lunch. Yes, she ate that and the cupcake I made.
This was Nascar Superbowl day. I usually have snacks and
popcorn but today I was having cupcakes!
It ended up being the longest race in Nascar history.
6 hours totalled. Into the night it went on because of
natures demons POTHOLES in the racetrack!!
The race was stopped for 1 1/2 hours and had a sort of
"halftime" break. Drivers ate, talked, napped etc while
the track was being fixed. I must say it took all the excitement
out of it and I hope they never have to do that again!
They began the race again and then had to stop it a
SECOND time for a larger POTHOLE.. The recent rain
in Florida was said to be the cause. I gotta say I have never
had lunch and dinner during a race before. It sure was weird.
In the end a young guy, Jaimie McMurray.. who had had troubles even getting
sponsors, won the race..his tears of joy and speechless
expression showed how grateful he was. I was so happy for him.
It was quite a race day.
It is cold here but not much snow. I sure am grateful for that.
Mom reported seeing 5 deer yesterday pretty close to the building
in the early morning.The snow was removed and there
was access to the ground cover. The young ones were
quite active. She sure is going to miss seeing them when
she goes home. She asked yesterday what they were
going to do with her room wehn she leaves and we told her someone
else will be lucky to get it, and they surely will.
WELL.. all from here…
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!
