My First Finished Ornament

Happy Monday E1

I am so excited to be home today and getting caught up on cleaning and laundry.

Harry has not been doing as good as I would like.  His dementia I believe has turned into alzheimer's now.  He seems to spend most of his time in another place and time.  It's so heart breaking to see him this way.  However where ever his mind is at he seems happy and content.  I am happy for him but not for me.  I miss being able to have those wonderful conversations with him.  Most days now,  he just lays in bed or sometimes we can carry him to the comfy lazyboy chair and put in a John Wayne movie for him.  He is no longer able to feed himself and one of the caretakers who we call Mama,  comes in and feeds him.  She is such a wonderful lady to watch and listen to.  She talks to him the entire time she is feeding him.  There are even times she can get him to talk a little.  

I did my very first Christmas ornament last week and I like how it came out.  We haven't had a tree in years but it might be fun to do a few more ornaments and put up a tree this year.  I am about to start another in a few mins.  I love how quick and easy they are.  With all that's been going on with Harry,  it's been hard to concentrate on big projects. So maybe ornaments are the thing for me right now. 


  1. That's an adorable ornament! Did you use perforated paper? I got 3 packages of it in a stash buy from someone on Craigslist and didn't know what to do with it!

  2. Sending you hugs as you deal with the changes going on with Harry.

    The ornament is adorable! Can't wait to see the next one :)
