92

 My Mom is 92 today. 


She keeps busy taking care of my Dad and sewing.  She makes all kinds of quilts and table runners.  She and Dad still live in their own home in town.  Dad still mows the lawn and Mom tends the numerous flowers she has planted all over.  She cans fruit...this year it was peaches and pears.

Isolation during the pandemic has been hard for her, because she is a very social person.   When you are 92 years old, most of your friends have died and those who are still alive are in a nursing home or assisted living.  She has two brothers who are still living and three sister in laws. Her brother that is younger than me lives in Nebraska and rarely comes up north anymore.  She and Dad get together with her brother and sister in law that live just 40 miles away...they play cards....pinochle  most likely...they tried to teach Far Guy and I one time...that didn't work at all.

Happy Birthday Mom!

  6. Indeed isolation is hard for those who are sociable. I know a lot of days I feel a bit lonesome too. However that is the lifestyle the hubby choses.
    I miss working part time because of the social aspect I had.
    Oh, pinochle and cribbage are two games hubby tried to teach me one time.
    No way could I get either game.
    I'll stick to Go Fish or as we called it as kids...Go to the Dump.
