Ned and I went to visit my mother again this week. I'm glad that we went. While this wasn't a great "visit," it was much more pleasant than when we went the first time.
She was sitting at the kitchen table looking through a magazine.
She has a FoodNetwork magazine and some fashion magazine. She looks carefully at each picture, feeling the food pictures because she can't tell if they are real or not without touching them.
She also has one of those books that you give to toddlers to teach them how to button things, tie things, and just feel different textures of fabric. It's a great experience for her and since everything is new when she looks at it, whether she just looked away from it a few minutes before, she never gets bored. If she sees words on a page, she carefully sounds them out. When I watch her struggle to sound out words it makes me sad to think of how she loved to read and how many books she read. It was my mother who introduced me to the Outlander books!
I actually got a smile out of her, briefly. As always when I see her, her arms remain firmly crossed across her chest. When we left, Ned asked if he could hug her and she said OK. I hugged her and told her I loved her and she actually said "I love you too."
Sandy gave us some protein drink I had not heard of before. It's called Orgain and tastes similar to Boost, a chocolate drink I had now and then. But this is called a "plant based protein shake" and the list of ingredients is amazing:
Who would think that something with beets, kale and spinach would be so tasty?
The day being 4/20, we went home and ordered sushi for dinner.
The place where we usually go for sushi was not open on 4/20 last year, so it was nice to have it back again, at least for home delivery. The "Lincoln Hills roll," on the right, is my favoritest thing.
