I have been away from the art room since Mom arrived, but I'm not complaining. We are having a good time. The hubster is not a game player, so I have to play catch up when I get the chance. My sister, Mary, stayed overnight again last night (we are going to Firekeepers this morning and her daughter will pick her up there.) and we had a very good day.
As far as being creative, I'm pretty sure making pancakes for breakfast and making banana oatmeal muffins for an afternoon snack count as creative activities. I also left for about 2 hours to drive to Stockbridge and tutor for an hour.
I am thrilled that I was able to get my Mom an appointment with the specialist for tomorrow afternoon. I am trying to be optimistic and hope it is a simple skin cancer that can be removed in the office and needs no follow-up.
I am still hoping to get a chance to sketch Mom while she is here. I am used to seeing her dozing in her chair when I visit her at her house, but her house is small and the windows are small and she can't really get up and get around that much. She lives in the middle of the woods and doesn't drive and the sister who lives next door doesn't like to take her places. So far while she has been here, she hasn't dozed at all. We are either talking (animatedly), playing games, working crossword puzzles, or going some place. I think this visit is so good for her.
On Thursday, my niece, Sarah, who is very close to Grandma (my Mom) is coming over for the day to visit. She grew up next door to my Mom and saw her just about every day while she was growing up. She is coming to visit and we may go to Lansing to the Goodwill with her as an outing.
Gotta go; Mom and Mary are arising and the house is coming alive.
Sorry I don't have any art to share, but maybe tomorrow.....
