Thompson'a Lake, May 1, 2014

Monday, April 21, turned into a beautiful, exciting day. Instead of me taking care of Zoey, Danielle took the day off and we spent it together.

We went grocery shopping, where I got to push Zoey in the cart and watched her trying to reach items on the shelf. 

We bought Chinese food and enjoyed lunch together back in the log cabin Danny built. That was a day to remember.

On Tuesday, April 22, I had an appointment at the garage to buy new tires and get my vehicle inspected.

I had a nice visit with Ron Teator, the owner of Crossroads, and we had a long talk about Danny, who he knew as Rooster.

Danny bought his first four-wheel drive pickup from Ron in 2010 and made a great impression on Ron.

Wednesday, April 23, I went over paperwork I was preparing for motor vehicle and did some catching up on chores around the house.

Later, in the afternoon I went with my grandson, Brandon Clark, on his dinner visit with his children, Samson and Nichole.

They both had a lot of math homework but are doing well in school.

On Thursday, April 24, my daughter, Kathy Carnevale, had the day off, and we decided to go to the motor vehicle office in Schoharie, and get some of my business finished. 

We enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Apple Barrel, and even saw some of our Berne neighbors, and had a nice visit.

We saw Colleen and Justin Stevens enjoying lunch and Colleen accommodated me by taking a picture of Kathy and me.

We also saw Anna Lefkaditis, shopping for a birthday gift and we got caught up on our children.

Then Kathy took me on a drive through the Catskills. It was very relaxing, and kind of made me sleepy.

Friday, April 25, was grocery day again. I bought some mushroom ravioli at BJs as Kathy recommended them. Brandon and I enjoyed them for dinner with cheese sauce and a salad. She was right, they were very tasty and filling.

Saturday, April 26, brought a ray of sunshine in the form of Tommy Ryan, a good friend of Danny’s. He came to help Brandon work on the plumbing in the new house.

Brandon, Samson, Nichole, Jenn Smith and Iain plan to move in there soon.

On Sunday, I went to church and then planned dinner, which was using the remainder of the Easter ham and preparing another large dish of scalloped potatoes. I was joined by my daughter, Marcia Pangburn, granddaughter, Kyra, and Brandon, Jenn and Iain. We enjoyed visiting after dinner and so ended another happy week.

We all seem to have a trigger that transcends us into a different place in time.

Monday, Sept. 15, was my Zoey day. Zoey arrived at 7:30 a.m. She has a very good memory.
