Ten on Tuesday – This Weekend


On Tuesday’s Carole hosts ‘Ten on Tuesdays’.
She chooses a topic – we list ten items.

10 Things You Did This Weekend.

My weekend started on Friday at 7:50, when we left for Medford, Oregon to join in the celebration of the life of our sister-in-law, Elsie.

Friday, 10:30, stopping in Redding CA to visit the Farmer’s mother in a nursing home.
Meeting us were 2 of the Farmer’s sisters and their husbands, a brother and his wife, a cousin and his wife and our adopted uncle. This picture shows Grandma at 100 years 9 months singing hymns along with us.

The whole gang had lunch at Hometown Buffet hosted by Shirley and William, the Farmer’s sister and husband.

Next stop, Ashland, Oregon, can you guess where?
The Web-sters, a yarn shop.
I found yarn for a shawl, but they had only 7 skeins and I need 8,  I’ll order it on line.

In Medford, we had supper at the Farmer’s brother, Darrel with his family, yummy nachos for me.

We stayed overnight at a Senior facility that rents rooms/apartments (as advertising).  A complimentary breakfast is included, I had Eggs Benedict at about 10:00, my favorite time for breakfast.

Elsie’s life celebration was warm, full of laughter and tears.

We left Medford about 3:00pm, driving through intermittent rain (not a lot of fun, but not too bad), stopping again in Redding at the Black Bear, and arriving home about 10:00pm.

Sweet rest in my own bed.

Sunday morning and evening, we attended worship services gaining strength and encouragement from the songs and God’s word.

Sunday afternoon, two of our grandsons spent the afternoon with us, lunch at Garcia’s, a trip to Barnes and Noble and Coldstone ice cream shop (one of the grandson’s had a gift card that was crying ‘use me’.

After evening service, I played a couple games of ‘May I’ with friends.

Oh, and I started a new shawl, My Wish, by Laura Linneman

Not our normal weekend activities, but one filled with love, laughter, memories and comfort.

Other weekends are here
