Plans for the morning~

Dad has been swallowing food.
But can he handle liquids without them going down the wrong pipe?
We’ll see.
It’s interesting to watch.
The difference between having a feeding tube or not.
Crossing fingers.

Isn’t the Human Body amazing?


The largest cup in the cupboard

1st – there was no caffeinated coffee in the house.
6:30 am coffee run and grocery store K-cup caffeinated coffee purchase.
2nd – the K-cup machine does 8 oz. as the largest amount.
8 oz. doesn’t fit in Mom’s “normal” cups, 8 oz. does fit in the “Nana” cup.

Mmmm, I am not a Nana and will not ever have the chance to biologically be a Nana …

I am a Grand Aunt, though. One who likes to play WrestleMania, steamroller, drop the clothespins into a milk jug and other hands-on games. Talk about high energy and rejuvenation! Kids share so much Joy.

And if the kids call me, “Nana” instead of “Aunt dievca” – excellent! My Mom is a fabulous Nana and if I slide into her shoes seamlessly, all the better.

You can call me “Nana” when I’ve got the coffee cup in hand.
But my grandnephews and grandnieces can call me “Nana” anytime!


And out on the driveway…

A young fox being harassed by a large orange tabby cat.
The fox didn’t seem too distressed, more of a “what ARE you?” vibe.


Leaving my heart with you…

He’s Grumpy!
After the move Master is taking on IKEA bookshelf build detail:

dievca is just so entertained with the thought.
