Random Ramblings

My blog has been neglected once again! Life is just going on and my blog is sitting here in Blogland unattended! Facebook has been biggest downfall as far keeping up with my blog.

I have been painting ornaments for Christmas. This is like therapy for me and Lord knows I need all the therapy I can get these days! Each year I paint ornaments and sell them. I start taking custom orders in September. Every year I come up with a different design or theme.
This year it is snowmen/snow people.

Christmas 2009 Ornaments

Please keep my family in your prayers. We are dealing with my mother who has Alzheimer's. My Dad has his hands full a lot of the time. It seems like in the past 2 weeks she has gone down hill so fast. The doctor is working with a different combination of medications and she is to see a neurologist in 2 weeks. She is having problems with knowing who my father is a lot of the time. It has been so painful for all of us to watch this horrible disease come in and steal away Mom's mind. It's as if it has come like a thief in the night robbing our mother of her memory. She is so sad and afraid most of the time. It's like she is stuck between knowing what is happening and being totally lost. There is no happy middle in her mind right now.
