Since Monday is Valentine's Day, I took Nana to a place called Hidden Talent. They have ceramics and you can paint them. She picked out a heart, painted it red, and gave it to Papa. It now hangs on the wall over their bed. It took some convincing to get her to paint it herself, but she did a great job. Papa gave her a teddy bear that sings a love song.

Very interesting Pixie!!

Dad did a whole lot of ceramics before he declined. He had ben dx and on meds . . .but was still pretty independant. He made a doll for each daughter and granddaughter (10 in all) which he used real lace and layered it for the dress and painted over it. And he made many other pieces too . . eagle, lighthouse, bear, castle, santa, etc. He seemed to really enjoy it. I asked him why he doesn't do that anymore and he claims that the lady who oversees the ceramic room at the senior center ran him off. sad I think I will pretend to be a senior (I am 51) and take him over there!

But today, we worked on a Jr. jigsaw puzzle and had a lot of fun.

It is really strange though . . . he knows exactly how I am feeling . . . he knows when I hurt, he knows when I am tired, etc. . . . even when I can fool my mom and family. I think that is very touching. He has also asked for me by name during the week . . . and he hasn't done any names for quite a while. . . so I am touched.

Thanks for sharing Pixie. . . we still plan to do that pedicure . . . couldn't find an open shop on a Monday . . LOL.

Snow, thanks again for the jigsaw idea!!!!

Hello Pixie, Snowy, LKE Lyn, and others:

Dad and I had a really good time today. He was eager to do our jigsaw puzzle and he worked very hard on it. He was joking and laughing and very proud of his work. He spread the glue over it himself this time (he taped one all together and so we started pouring glue over top and spreading it out with a platic spatula .. . works great). He reasures me that it will dry clear and checks on it repeatedly.

We went shoping and bought two more puzzles (we are doing the 100 piece puzzles). He didn't want the puzzle with the bears as he was afraid they would 'get lose in the the house'. He is so deer!!!!

He took me on a tour of his house (I lived there a number of years when I was young . . . but he doesn't remember that) and showed me all the ceramics that he had done. He showed me his racing pictures (he used to race a stock car!) and we talked about his racing days.

It was a lovely day!!

Blessings!
In His grip,
AlwaysRosie
