Hello Friends!

My, I am sorry it has been so long since I have posted on my blog or been in touch with any of you.

I was busy the week of Thanksgiving with family company. The day after Thanksgiving we started helping my parents with their move to a senior citizens apartment in a small town, almost 20 miles from here.

They are both having health problems. My dad's back is so bad that he can barely walk and my mom has re-injured her foot. She was supposed to have surgery on it several years ago, but it has managed to get better on its own--until recently.

The house they have here is heated only by wood. We tried to keep wood stacked on their porch and in their firewood box inside, but they were having trouble even getting it out of the box. For now, this is the best solution for them, as we are not always available to build fires for them and this move puts them a half hour closer to their doctor appointments.

Last week, the day after most of their moving was finished, I came down with some sort of virus and am still in the process of recovering. I am much better and starting to feel like my old self. I will try to get around to visit all of you in the next day or two.

I Hope you are all having a great start to the Christmas season!



  1. Hope that you feel better soon, It no fun to be down. Glad you got your parents all moved, thats a chore in its self. Take care and sip on some tea.

  2. I do hope everyone is feeling better soon. I will keep you in my prayers

  3. Hope you feel better soon. I had a bronchitis ear infection thing that is still hanging on. I'm on my second round of antibiotics. Tea and a quilt-that will fix you up!

  4. My goodness RM, you have been busy. So sorry about your parents but this move will make it easier on everyone even though it is a hard thing to do.
    Hope you are feeling better now, you probably just over did it with the move and all.
    Get some rest.

  5. We miss you. Hurry and feel better!

  6. Dear RoseMary,
    It sounds like you have had a lot of trying things going on. I will be praying for your parents--I know this all must not have been easy, but it does sound like a better situation for all.
    I do pray you will be feeling better soon-hopefully you can get more rest now that you have your parents settled.
    Thanks for visiting the cabin--I have been thinking about you! Would you mind emailing me at your home address if possible?
    Blessings to You!Claudia O

  7. Sounds like you could use some needed rest...hope everyone adjusts and does well. Have a peaceful & healthy holiday season.

  8. So good to hear from you again. Keep on the mend girl! Lot's of hot tea and good books!

  9. Oh Rosemary, hope your feeling better soon, I know how it is, the same cold virus has struck my family on and off for the last month, you just can't get rid of it! Get some rest! Glad you got your parents moved, I hope they like their new home. Hugs!!

  10. Hello Rose Mary
    Hope you (and your parents) are feeling better.
    Take Care

  11. Good to know how you're doing, Rosemary. I'm sure this is a bit tough on all of you. Autumn and winter always seem to be the time for these difficult changes. But it sounds like the solution you have is an appropriate one. (And I'm sure no one here begrudges you for not blogging more often.) Take care!

  12. Hope you are feeling better by now, RoseMary! I had a bit of something the week after the wedding. I was at my doctor for a regular check up the Tuesday after and he ordered some meds for me. I knew I wasn't feeling up to par, but wanted to make it through the wedding!

    I remember when we moved Mother to an assisted living facility. Bittersweet times...


  13. I do hope you are feeling better by now dear Rosemary. I know all will be fine once they are settled...moving is very hard at any age but gets even harder for older folks. Bless you all.


  14. I am sorry you haven't been feeling well. I hope that you are 100% real soon!

  15. RoseMary, Just checking in and praying that you are feeling much better and enjoy the Christmas time with all of its beauty and meaning. love you, connie from Texas
