We Were All Fooled Eileen and Other Moments Since Returning Home

Stan and Eileen, Erin's Godparents sent these beautiful Iris to her at the house. Sadly UPS arrived just before 8 PM last night with them, and Erin was already long back at Stanford.

This is the enclosed card. Rob has a laptop so when Erin is feeling better, she will see both via computer. Love the technology these days! And Eileen thank you. I am sorry they didn;t get to Erin in time, but we are enjoying. They are lovely.

Deb feeding Mackenzie Thursday.

This was Erin Friday morning when she first got up after having the migraine and not feeling well. By the evening she was like a ragdoll she was so weak, and her coling was even worse.

You can see from this picture which was taken Thursday even after the drive from Stanford to the house how night and day her change was from one day to the next. Her coloring gives it away as well.

Begonias blooming in the garden. Such a nice surprise to see.

My Neighbor Deborah knit these little sweaters and made wine cork people for me. They make me smile when I look at them. It amazes me when people can knit, sew or make anything this tiny. It reminds me of my Nana who crocheted doll clothes for my dolls, including Barbie.

Preparing chicken for Friday night dinner. Deb said my chicken was into bondage.

Zucchini with butter and Paremsan ready for ther oven.

Halloween tablecloth.

I missed the annual trip to Apple Hill with my firends this year, but they picked me up 2 cases of apples which I wanted to cook with. Thank you! Thank you!

Lots of ideas of what to make with them...............
Stay tuned to see what I do end up making with them. Do you have any favorite recipes using apples? If you are willing to share, I would love to have them.

Looks like you've been busy Diane, since returning home. Do enjoy the flowers you deserve it. You're right about seeing the noticeable change in Erin in the two pictures.
Thanks for the updates and the picture of the flowers. It's nice to know that what you ordered is what your recipient got. Love, Eileen
