2 Days to 100 years old!

Today Gpa woke up excited for the day.  He told me he was glad to see me.

He even ate two bowls of oatmeal!  Yay!

I worked on the patio and it’s looking really nice.  The vegetables are not growing fast enough, but know that I’m checking on them a couple of times a day.

We went to the library and the grocery store.  He would have spent the rest of the day in the car if I had let him.  It was a beautiful day and we sat in the front yard a bit.

Several times during the day, we made eye contact, really made eye contact and connected.  It was nice, oh and it took him a while in the bathroom.  While I was sitting on his walker waiting for him to finish his business, all I could think of was this is one of the strangest places/time to be in the moment.  But I know that there will be a day when I won’t be hanging out with Gpa in the bathroom and so I’ll charish these moments, too.

and did I tell you? Isobel and Cat nominated me for the versatile blogger award!  How cool is that?  Here’s where to check out Isobel and her cat.

    Oh this reminds me so much of times when I have sat on the shower seat while Mother was on the loo. We have recited poems there, chatted, sometimes waiting for some assistance if she has had an accident. Then up with the knickers and trousers and washing hands with good hot water and lots of soap.
    Like you, I have often thought it’s a strange place to be.
