A Busy Week Ahead!

I hope all is well with everyone. Things are improving here. The house is getting back to normal after the painting and floor refinishing projects. The surgical patients are doing well and are back at work. The fall patient is doing better, having some home health care and walking with a walker. Needless to say, we're enjoying the calm and quiet and lack of drama!

This week is a busy one. We have 3 birthdays to celebrate and several doctor’s appointments. Sunday, of course, is Father’s Day. I’m starting to work on menus for several get-togethers this week.

Here is the weekly event calendar:

June 10 to 16 is Men’s Health Week. It’s important for the men in our lives to take care of themselves, even though they tend put off medical needs.

June 11 – Corn on the Cob Day*

June 12 – National Jerky Day and National Peanut Butter Cookie Day* (yum!)

June 14 – Army’s Birthday*, Family History Day*, Flag Day*,  Pause for the Pledge Day* and World Blood Donor Day*

June 15 – National Day of Prayer for Law Enforcement Officers and Worldwide Day of Giving*

June 16 – Father’s Day, Fudge Day* and Husband Caregiver Day

Probably the most important of these days to celebrate is Father’s Day, and those of us lucky enough to still have our fathers certainly realize their importance in our lives. They've cared for us, taught us, loved us, and at times corrected us. My Dad is now 93 years old (or young!) and is doing extremely well for his age. He is active and mentally alert, and pretty much self-sufficient. Now if he’d only hand over those car keys! Smile
Mark Twain, Old Times on the Mississippi:
When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.
Mario Cuomo:
I talk and talk and talk, and I haven't taught people in 50 years what my father taught by example in one week.
Enjoy your week!
