I spent the day in Denver-town. It really wasn't that bad today. It was a fairly warm day and the snow was melting and CarGuy went with me. First stop was Auntie's condo. I knew I was going to have to inventory things and came up with the idea of using my digital camera. I've started with the books. Hundreds of them. If I don't crop the photo is it large enough that I can read the title and the author. Do you notice something about these books? They are all boxed. I will need to do this with the china and crystal and the Bradford Exchange Plates. *sigh*
Next stop was the assisted living facility she is moving into. I have searched and could not find a photo of it anywhere, even in their literature. So I took my own. It's a pretty nice looking place doncha think? I wish I had a way to print it out so she could have seen it large instead of in the camera. But, oh well. This is a fairly new facility and I really liked it. She is getting excited about moving, now.
The next stop was to visit Auntie in the nursing facility. I swear, every time I go there is something else of hers missing. This time it was a pair of slacks and a mock turtleneck that I had bought for her; it was brand new. I told the nurse about it but I don't think anything will happen. I did take my thick Micron pigment pen with me and marked her name in everything she has at that place. It's a bunch of thieves there. That has got to be a real low life to steal clothes from an old lady in a nursing home. I'm so glad she is getting out of there soon.
It was sunny in Denver-town when CarGuy and I left but the further north I drove the darker it got. By the time I was close to home I was driving through ground blizzards. Have you ever driven through a ground blizzard? It is when the wind is blowing sooo hard that it grabs the top layer of snow and drives it in drifts across the road. The road turns icy, icy and the wind is pushing the car sideways a bit and visibility is zero at times. No fun. But at one break in the wind I looked toward the foothills and the sight was so beautiful it took my breath away. The wind was coming straight out of the north right along the base of the foothills and was picking up all this snow and there were plumes of snow curving up into the air. Beautiful!
Now I'm home and warm. And to make this post even a tiny bit quilty, I'll mention that tonight I start to quilt on the swap quilt.
