THE Big Day

The weather has been beautiful today, but if the weatherman is right we will be driving in the rain when I go Monday for my eye surgery. The nurse asked when she called with my instructions if I was a little anxious. I guess you could say I get a little more so the closer that it gets, but knowing that it will make a big difference in my vision makes it all worthwhile. 
I went to the Pumpkin Fest today before I went to the nursing home. I was on a mission to get peach and apple cobbler that they made in the dutch oven. If I could have figured out how to get the ice cream there with out melting, we would have it on top. It was yummy without the ice cream. I gave dad his choice of which one he wanted. He chose the peach so I had the apple. It was crowded with a lot of little ones running around and I did look at some of the crafts. 
I will probably stop by in the morning before I go to the nursing home. It will be the last day for a couple of days until I can drive again. We will talk on the phone which we do each night before we go to bed. I always hate when I just can't go out and go wherever I want to go. My grandson is ready to take care of grandma. I get his lower bunk bed again.
The plans for our 50th wedding anniversary is mushrooming for next Saturday the 19th.  Not only will the kids have a reception for us at the nursing home, but we are going to renew our Wedding vows. There is 5 at mass today with their heads together making plans of how that is going to happen. I have a wedding planner and how much fun it will be. Father is looking forward to doing the mass for us on our special day.  They told us to trust them not to worry it would be a wonderful day. They have helped push him in the wheelchair when I had my last eye surgery. They make you feel very much a part of it. 
The temperature is dropping this evening. It is already down to 49 degrees. You definitely know it is the fall of the year and the days are flying by. 
Have a wonderful weekend. Take care.
