with my mother, got her lunch, and listened to her stories.
And I got a break.
One I sorely needed.
It is amazing how calming it is to sit at the loom, and weave a rug. Nothing quite does it for me like this does. I didn't really have an agenda, nothing I needed to do. I just wanted some "me time", as you so rightly put it. It was a rainy day, and the afternoon was gone too soon.
Then on the way home, I did something that I never thought I would do. I stopped at KMart, and bought a baby monitor.
Yes, yes, I really did.
What prompted this was waking up from a sound sleep, well after midnight, when my mother had chest pain last night, and couldn't find her nitro. When her pain was gone, and I went back to bed, I was on edge because I was afraid I wouldn't hear her over her over the rain on the roof.
So .......the baby monitor. For some peace of mind, and rest. Oh, yes, sweet sleep.
I posted about the mourning dove nesting over my hot tub. I guess my house must look bird friendly, because there is a robin nesting on the front porch.
The birds have been eating the berries off this vine all winter, but I wondered when I saw this big robin hovering around.
I can't see any babies, but they must be in there, because she keeps leaving and coming back.
Then she saw me.
So I took my camera away. I don't want to upset her world.
I know how it feels.
