Happy Independence Day

July 4, 2017

Today I spent the day with my man. We had a small cook out, just the two of us. It was really nice. Normally we spend the day with chaos surrounding us with our families. Don't get me wrong, I love the chaos. It is good chaos. Yet this was special, intimate. After sundown we watched the fireworks together. A little romantic to be honest.

 

Bobby and I had invited Granny to join us.Yet these days she is paranoid if she leaves her home with a family member. She believes we are conspiring against her and will put her in a home. It breaks my heart, yet I know paranoia is just part of the progressive disease. Some days she loves me and doesn't know what she would do without me yet other days she absolutely hates me. It is hard to keep the disease and reality separated. After taking care of her for seven years we had a very close relationship and she relied on me for every whim and care. Now at times, today being one of them, I am her worst enemy.

 

On a quilting note, I had planned on having the red, white and blue table runner finished last week. I have a lot of quilting don on it, but it is still not finished. Maybe it will be done by next years Memorial day at the rate I am progressing. Here is what it looks like today.
