Family Time in Rochester



After leaving Rosy's house Saturday, I drove to Rochester to join Peder, Sarah and Aurelia at Janet and Jerry's. We had a good time together, in spite of Aurelia not feeling well. Even though she had a cold and hadn't been sleeping well, she still flashed her beautiful smile. Plus, she was standing! She pulls herself up by holding onto things, such as her diaper bag.

It was good spending time with my family again. We talked about our upcoming cruise to Alaska over a delicious dinner of steak, baked potatoes, salad, and a delicious Red Velvet cake.

Sunday morning we went to church and got to hear the choir in which Jerry is now a member. It was very nice.

Following the church service we went to see my little friend, Cassie. The last time I went to visit her, she was sound asleep and we couldn't wake her. But today she was wide awake, and most of important of all, she recognized me! I was so happy to see her smile again. She seemed to understand what I was saying. And when we left, we waved at her through her window, and she waved back. This is amazing, as she has Alzheimer's Disease. Cassie will turn 95 in July.

I'm glad to hear that Cassie is doing better.

I'll bet Hans wishes he had been at Janet & Jerry's not only for the company, but for the red velvet cake!

¡Mui bien! What a deal - teaching English! Terrific! I know you'll do excellently well!

I'm glad to hear you had a better communication with Cassie this time, than last. I know with Alzheimers... they can change from day to day, you never know what you're going to encounter, so I'm glad you got there on a (her) good day ;-)

(I just got caught up with your blog, all the way back to your Easter concerts. Such a busy girl you are! But that's good!)

May the Lord bless the work of your hands and feet, in all you do and say, where-ere you go!
