Slow progress

It's been a long week. I had more parental issues to deal with. My 58 year old mother is now in a rest home. She's not happy about that, it was a last resort after her stubbornness and poor decision making on her part. Mostly due to effects of her stroke 5 years ago. Dad is waiting to be placed in long term care with Dementia. He's only almost 64. Which leaves the house to deal with. If anything I would like to pass on to you all. Discuss plans with your parents, doesn't matter their age. Make sure they have a will drawn up and a power of attorney appointed to make financial and health decisions, especially if they ever get deemed incompetent for whatever reason. Laws maybe different in other countries, but it is very important it's taken care of so you don't have so much red tape to deal with should the time come.

Moving on.... Daisy square blanket progress. One more row of squares to go. It more baby blanket size. And border of course. 

On the weekend, honey and I went to a local Funfest and got to see a few rock tribute bands. One of them being a tribute band for Kiss called Destroyer.  

And the Carnival is in town. 

And we have a big fireworks show every year for Canada Day and the 4th of July for the Americans on the river.

Have a good week everyone!
