Monday was Veteran’s Day. Brandon had the day off but he didn’t have Samson and Nichole, as it was Veronica’s turn for a Federal holiday.

I went up to Danielle’s and held Zoey for an hour and it gave her time to get a casserole in the oven for dinner.

I ate with Brandon, Jenn and Iain as they asked me first.

Monday, Nov. 4, came and was very busy for Danielle, Zoey and me.

Danielle took family leave from work so we could get all her dad’s affairs in order.

Our first stop was the bank to get some checks and pay some bills. Then Zoey had a doctor’s appointment.

I didn’t write a column for last week because the paper was full of other items, so I’ll point out some of my interesting happenings.

Monday, Oct. 14, was Columbus Day. Danielle had to work and I had Zoey. Brandon picked up Samson and Nichole for the day. This gave me the perfect opportunity to have Brandon take pictures of me with my three great-grandchildren, Samson, Nichole and Zoey.

Monday, Oct. 7, was one of those days with unpredictable weather. All day the television warned of a tornado approaching. I kept wondering when Baby Zoey and I might have to wait it out in the cellar. We were lucky and it missed our area completely.

On Monday I had an appointment for a physical with Dr. Kolanchick. My daughter, Kathy came and watched Zoey. She took Zoey in the stroller and went to the apple orchard on our farm. Zoey loved the bumpy ride into the apple orchard.

On Monday, Sept. 23, my daughter Kathy came and spent the day. She held Zoey most of the day and took her outside a few times to enjoy the fresh air.

This week has been quieter and we are trying to get back on a routine. I can’t say there won’t be times where we slip and fall backwards.

My granddaughter, Danielle, returned to her job at an insurance office and Zoey returned to spend the days with me.

On Tuesday, Sept. 17, Zoey turned 3 months old.

I want everyone who reads my column to know that I appreciate the compassion you have shown toward me and my family and I am trying to keep busy and in the old routine to move past my sorrows.

I spent Monday trying to get a lot of the paperwork done that needs completing after a death.
