Above, Mom is now home from her doctor's appointment this morning, reading today's paper and wearing a knitted hat against the cold outside!
These lilies from Laura are still blooming!... now that she is home they are in her room here.
I recently found this very old photo. It shows Mom as a child, about 1930, before the dust bowl in Eva, Oklahoma.
She is wearing a new green velvet hat and standing in front of a bush with yellow roses. She told me those colors when she looked at the photo. She can't remeber the dress, so I can really play with the color there!.
I have made plans to use this photo as inspiration for a painting. As soon as I have quiet time to sketch and plan and paint!
For now, I am thankful to have her home here.....and doing better!
