Blogging friends are so wonderful aren't they?
I have a friend, Faith, that lives in the UK.
She sends me the most thoughtful and fantastic gifts!
Here is the latest gift send to me from Faith.
I have not eaten the chocolate yet but those little coconut babies on the left?
I went to my dad's on Friday instead of going to work.
This is my life every other Friday.
I took him and my sister to see my other sister because he has not seen her in awhile.
She lives in a group home and has a lot of mental problems
(born mentally retarded, cataracts on both eyes, schizophrenic and bipolar).
I have not seen her in a very long time either.
Unfortunately, she did not really know any of us and did not talk to us.
We stayed and visited as best we could and then I took them home.
She is on a lot of medication to keep her psychosis under control.
She also has to have ect (electro convulsive therapy)
every other week, so I understand her not knowing us.
I'm glad I could take my dad to see her though.
Then we came home and started cleaning his dining room table.
See that clean half?
That took 3 hours to do with both of us working!!
I also cleaned some of the front closet out, still more to do there but it's a start!
Lest you think I didn't do anything quilt related, I did.
I got the binding sewn on the Halloween Quilt.
I also worked on my dad's quilt some this weekend.
I got half of it sewn together.
I only have 1 more snowball to rip apart and re-sew then I can begin putting the last 4 rows together.
I hope you had a productive weekend too!
