Another month has passed and I am linking up with Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day.
I had several small finishes this month. I've discovered I love making wonky stars and framed clutch purses.
My mom has decided she wants to live in assisted living and not return to our house, where she has lived for nearly 11 years. It is a bittersweet moment for Mr. Romance and I. It's like the last kid is flying the coop! Yes, we will be empty nesters! But my mom has been such a part of our family for so long that it will be an adjustment. Just last night I made BBQ pork ribs for dinner. My mom always made the sauce...I don't even know how to make mom's rib sauce! Yikes!
My mom's personality has blossomed since she has been recuperating in the assisted living facility since her hip fracture. She loves the interaction with her peer group everyday, not to mention the Bingo and crafts that she can be involved with. She will be moving tomorrow to a new facility that is a little further away from our house but closer to my sister, so she will still have someone close by for emergencies.
So say a little prayer for my mom, Jean. Doesn't she look fantastic at 86 years old?
