A Pleasant Sunday

Cousin Kathy got the day off as Caro and I stayed home. I mostly worked on podcasts for my CSF class while Caro got a rare opportunity to putter around in her garden. Terrance was out in the Hidden Garden in the AM but disappeared, probably into the Vinca in the PM.

Frances ate a goodly sized bowl of Cream of Wheat for breakfast, napped a bit, and then was energetic enough to take the airs on the back porch for a late lunch. She wolfed down three of these delectible salmon pinwheels from the Co-op, which is a pretty good meal for her these days.

For dinner we finished off last Monday's turkey, dressing, gravy, and cranberry sauce. The highlight was fresh green beans cooked with Greek spices. Frances ate all of hers.

Today she has been engaged and spoke to me of the odd feeling of packing up in Myrtle Beach--leaving clothes and possessions behind that she would never see again. She's had no pain and only used a minimum of drugs today.

Thanks for the photos and narrative update, Karl, especially for those of us who don't live in the same state. Frances looks pretty, cozy, and serene. Cannot believe the wild and unpredictable Paddy is sleeping on her bed!
