A must read - Nana Diana's book

Nana Diana wrote a book, a novel.  It's "The Mystery of Lucy."  I ordered it from her etsy shop but you can get it on Amazon.  The picture on the cover is Diana when she was a little girl.
I don't read many books.  I do read a lot, but when I read a book, I can't stop reading til I am finished.  I usually read books like Nicholas Sparks writes.  I like a good read without all the r-rated things.
I loved her book.  Who doesn't love Diana.  It was fun reading little bits that reminded me of her.  Trust me, you will like this book.  Give it a try. 

Life as it is......
It has rained every day since the first week in June.  Sure wish we could pipe it out west.  My daughter lives in Colorado that is always a drought zone.  Not this year.  It's humid there and very rainy.  Crazy weather.  The one thing about rain is it keeps the temps. down.   I never complain, well almost never, because we have a well.
My Mom is recovering in rehab right now.  I have been driving back and forth.  I leave again tomorrow.  We live around 100 miles from where she is.   I actually think she somewhat likes it there.  Many people she knows live in the assisted living section or in the nursing home part.  They are doing all kinds of things with her.  Tomorrow the therapist is going to her condo to make suggestions.  I will go home and pick her up to go to her condo. They will put her in and take her out of the car. She's not being released just yet.  I know this will be a hard visit home since she lost her little dog and he won't be there.  But Hank goes home with me since he is too little to stay alone in the house here for long periods of time.  I hope he helps her missing her doggy.  That little guy gets so much attention. 
We had a showing here yesterday morning and then again this morning.  We just go through the motions and don't get too optimistic.  We think if it is going to sell it will be this month with school starting next month.  Some houses are selling but not in our price range.
We had Max and Mabel again last night.  They didn't stay over because of the showing.  Grampy took them home and got them in bed before mom and dad came home.  I stayed behind to clean up so we would be ready in the morning.
I will be back home by Wednesday to watch my other sons girls.  It's been three months since our DIL was in ICU.  he is having testing done at Cleveland Clinic.  Since her activity has been reduced she has done well.  We are all waiting to see what these tests show.
So that's it my friends, not much exciting going on, just life.

Debby, I am with you about all this rain. You are in my prayers, with your house selling, your DIL 's tests and health and all that you are going thru with your mother. Blessings to you, xoxo,Susie

Debby, it's stressful selling a house. I hate when you have to make sure every little thing is in place without even a spoon in the sink. You can't even stuff things in cupboards because people always snoop inside those too. I wish you luck in your sell and always love to visit your blog.
Cheers!

I can't believe your beautiful house hasn't sold!!! I must add that back to my prayer journal.
You are such a busy lady!! It is so loving how you drive that 100 miles to see your mother.
Prayers for your loved ones.....

Prayers for safe travels this week! I hope your home visit is helpful. When both of my parents were released from rehab they refused to follow the suggestions. Oh well. Fingers and toes crossed on the home showings!!! (hugs)

Debby, I sure hope your house sells too. I can see that you resigned yourself to accept whether it sells or not after each viewing and also travelling to see your mom 100 miles away.

It keeps you very busy and I hope you don't get burnt out. You are a very busy lady and always giving of yourself. Prayers for a sale on your home.

Safe travelling.
Hugs,
JB

Gosh, that's a lot of travelling for you to do constantly. Do you at least get to stay overnight for a day or two with each trip? Hopefully, your mom's re-hab will go well. Even better if she decided to live at the assisted living where some of her friends are. This would put your mind at rest.

If we could, I'd have you send a little of your rain our way. Not all of it, just enough to keep our water coffers filled. Hopefully, it will stop raining soon and the sun will come out for you.

You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
