There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

Mom and Dad Happy Times.

Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

It is cold and rainy today. My feet are cold. We have been enjoying sunshine the last few days than back to rain and chilly weather. I promise that I will not say a bad word this summer when it is hot. I will try not to anyway. It has been such a long winter . Just can't wait till summer is here to stay.
I here the world is coming to an end the 21th of this month . Well, since we have heard about it I am not to worried. Doesn't  the bible say something like He will come as a thief in the night. Not to worried about when he is coming . We need to be worried about being ready when he comes.
Anyway I was a bit lazy again tonight so we had Cheesy Mashed Potatoes , Applesauce, and pureed mixed veg. I  was not in the mood to cook any meat. So that's why mom got cheesy mashed potatoes rather than just reg. ones. Had to get some protein in there somewhere.  She was still chewing on the scrambled eggs she had for lunch anyway . Mom is like a chipmunk . She pockets things in her cheeks. For breakfast I was not so lazy. We had homemade biscuits and gravy. Mom eats bread better than biscuits . So she had bread and gravy. I actually like bread better . But my son loves homemade biscuits. He will be starting his summer job Monday . We will miss him. He will be so busy all summer.
Mom had her evaluation from Hospice today. I believe they will keep coming. She is not getting any worse but of course with Alzheimer's you never get any better either. The nurse measured her arm the other day and she is losing weight but not to fast. That is good. Her bones are sticking out all over. I hate it. But she eats good and I love that. We just take it one day at a time and the good with the bad. Hope everyone has a nice weekend. With some sunshine.


  1. I don't believe the bit about May 21st. Cheesy mashed potatoes are one of my favorites. Glad your mom is stable and that Hospice is still coming.


  2. The end of the world prediction has come and gone so many times now!! : ) If it comes I'm ready!
    I still say a prayer for you and your mom every morning.

  3. Karen, you're such a loving and caring daughter!
    The cheesy mashed potatoes sounds so tempting to me right now....yum!

    The silly people who say the earth is coming to an end on a certain day.... need to read the Bible.
    Hope you have a sunshiny weekend!
