Busy Day Ahead

Boulder study, Tuesday 8 March 2011.

I have 30 minutes in which to do this post, have something to eat and head off to Dad's.

On the way I will pick up his order for 'Hot-Cross Buns' (it being Lent) at the bakery in which he loves to harass the sales staff.....thankfully they see right through his attempts at giving them a hard time.

When I get to his house I plan to give him a hair cut. It is getting a little 'shaggy' around the ears. I have been cutting his hair for a couple of months now. It is a lot easier for him this way than to go out to the local barber.

After the hair cut he will have a bite to eat and then off to the doctor for an appointment. I have a few questions for her as well. It was recommended that he have on-going prescriptions for a few things that may come in handy in the next year.

You see his mobility (his ability to move around on his own) is getting very limited and we, the family, are looking ahead to have in place a few things that we may need.

So today is a busy one and I better get my butt in gear.

I'm off.


  1. That boulder is full of rainbows! Your Dad is a very lucky man, to have such good children to look after his needs, while still enabling him to be independent.

  2. It's so wonderful that you and your Dad have each other. And I remember those lovely buns that we ate during Lent when I was a kid. Maybe I have to write about our Easter traditions next. When you have a moment, please check out my post for today. I have a message regarding books about China for you.

  3. Zephyr said your rock looks like a turtle butt. LOL Thought I would share. Good morning, Mal

  4. Oh, I hope you have a wonderful day with Dad. I'll be seeing MY dad tomorrow and can't wait to see him and hear all about all the mail he's been receiving from his fan club!

  5. I knew you were off so thanks for admitting it, finally. But you're also a good boy.
    Your Friend, m.

  6. Good luck with your busy day.

  7. What a lovely boulder, must have been some storm, to bring it there! Love the colors!

    You are so lucky to have your Dad around yet. I hope you have been doing the recordings and that stuff about his "memoirs".

    I hope you had a lovely day!

  8. That rock rocks! Have a nice day with your Dad.

  9. Lovely pics of that boulder! Your Dad is so lucky to have family like you looking after him so well in old age! Hope your day was busy but satisfying!
