It is taking me awhile to get used to the time change, so I haven't been doing much. Everyone is so happy to see me back. Especially my husband.

My sister Mary and her husband Todd put on a wonderful turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. The table setting was with my Grandmother's dish set.

This the house that the nurse nuns lived in next to the hospital that I was born in. This house has been remodeled for someones home now. The hospital has been torn down. When they were taring it down I took home one of the bricks and use it for a door stop at my home.
This is the power plant that the hospital had and someone has made it into a house.

My children used to ride in the back seat in my Dad's car when we would visit and one said to me do we have to go down memory land again. Well I spend the whole day today doing just that. What a joy. It is 57 degrees today with the sun shining it's heart out.

is the day that my father's friends meet at Jerabeck's Bakery. They all exclaimed when they saw what I ordered for breakfast. The cream puff I had to have because my Grandma always made these for my birthday. I haven't had one in years. Dad's friends watched me try to put it in my mouth gracefully.

Yesterday I took a trip to Hudson, Wisconsin to see my college roommate. We gave each other a hug and said can you believe that we have known each other for fifty years. Even though we don't see each other very much, we can begin talking where we left off the last time we say each other. I had called her to tell her that my father had died and that I would be in town for a while. She then told me that her husband had died a couple weeks after my father. We processed our griefs together. We realized that we have learned so much in our lives. It was fun to talk about our children and their children. She has such a beautiful piece of land that the winter is putting to sleep, but will wake up in the spring and she will enjoy a part of her husband putting in his vegetable garden. Goodbye to you this visit and looking forward to our next.

To Rhonda's Creative Life Blog. Rhonda asked if she could put on her blog my story about my father and a wooden foot he gave my son. She also told the story of the foot print in the sand in her Sunday night reflection. She didn't know it, but I gave that story to my step mother some time ago and she hung it on her wall. When my step mother died I took it off the wall and brought it to my father and read it to him to give him courage and tell him he could make it through his wives death. He called me his strong daughter as I told him that he would be able to do it with God being beside him. Then when I learned that he was dying in the hospital I brought the story to him and read it to him again. I hadn't realized what that story and the wooden foot had played in my life. Thank you Rhonda for all that you do for so many people. http://rhondabuss.blogspot.com/2012/11/sunday-night-reflections_11.html

This is the refrigerator that my parents still had in their basement. It was the first one that they had and I think it is from the 40's. It still works. A friend came today and took it to put it in his cabin up north. He was so excited.

Today was All Saints Day at the church that my Father and Mother attended. They light a candle for each person in the church that has died during the last year. My sister and her husband and their daughter, my brother, cousin and myself were able to attend together. My parents were pillars of this church.
