After the Storm

Pumpkin blossomLast night we had a rain storm.  At least one activity in the area got canceled due to the weather.  I don’t know if because we had so little rain this summer if people just don’t know how to react but it didn’t seem that bad when we were driving home from the movies last night.

The storm continued throughout the night and we even had some thunder. I don’t know if any of that woke Gpa up but he did get up several times.

I get up when I hear him stirring, I’ll stay quiet on the sofa to see what he is doing.  I am up to make sure he doesn’t fall or get into the fridge in the kitchen.  Sometimes I’ll give him a cookie, a drink or take him to the bathroom.

I watched him enter a dark room.  Look for the light switch on the wrong wall, step back into the hall, turn on that light and then step into the dark room and find the light switch.

In his wanderings last night he even made it to the front door.  The other day he was able to figure out both the dead bolt and regular lock.  So I have a child proof cover on the door handle.  So far he gives up when the cover spins.  Whew!

I figure it’s only a matter of time before he decides to tackle that problem.  Then I’ll have to come up with something else.

Last night, he did notice that I was following him.  He said something.  Tried a couple more times to check out the kitchen, then he went back to his room!  He shut the door in my face.  Good for him.

Since it was 5:55 am, I went back to bed.

When we got up.  This pumpkin blossom was blooming in the garden!

Today is going to be a great day.  I hope yours is as well.
