Then Saturday I went to Huntingburg and hooked with the Guild at the Serendipity Fibers shop. Such a good day! Got to see some of my favorite people -- Libby, Janice, Mary, Shirley, Sheila, Sue, Sharon -- and meet our newest hooker, Melody. Just a great day. Plus, I got a lot of hooking done on my big yellow ware bowl rug. When Wendell picked me up, we went for a late lunch just two doors down at the Old School Cafe; always a good thing. It was a beautiful sunny day and to top it off we enjoyed a picturesque drive back home through the backroads of southwest Indiana. What more could I ask for ... well, a better Sunday, that's what.
Wendell had another near-fainting spell at church Sunday. We were welcomed back and were settled in for the sermon when I could see him 'going away'. He didn't make it to the back of the church before he had to lay down on a pew. Luckily we have an EMT and a nurse (hubby & wife) who attend, so he was well taken care of. Long story short -- he ended up in an ambulance on the way to Bloomington where we spent most of the afternoon in the ER. Not a good way to spend the end of our first week home! But as of today, we're back to "normal" -- whatever that is anymore. Yesterday, while we were sitting in a waiting room of a doctor's office I turned to him and said "make it end!". It just came out. I want the old "normal" back again! But it's not happening. I felt bad ...
Well, enough negativity! Here's just a picture or two to wrap up our journey home ...
|Our first a.m. on the road, just north of Alamogordo, NM ... it was cold and foggy on the top of the mountains, but by the time we got thru it was sunny and warm.|
|The highlight of the trip home for me was our visit to The Pioneer Woman Mercantile in Pawhuska, OK. All I can say is WOW! I'd go back again in a heartbeat! We spent two hours here and in this cute little town.|
|Just a taste of some of the merchandise downstairs ...|
|And here's where W. spent his entire "shopping" trip -- enjoying a corner upstairs window with a cinnamon roll and a cup of coffee. He likes to people watch.|
|Bass Pro has just opened their aquarium. It's difficult for us to go thru Springfield and not stop here. The good news is that they bought a motel across the street and are fixing it up! That's where we'll be staying next time!|
Say a prayer for my honey.
