Because of all the car drama last Thursday I missed my weekly visit to Daddio. When I go to the nursing home, I always pack a big bag of different things for us to do because I never know which Daddio I will find.
Lately he has just been wanting to read this same magazine over and over. He is always so happy to see the tiger.
He wasn't very talkative yesterday. He just poured over the pictures occasionally calling out a word here and there. Whenever I miss a visit I find he is cautious. Almost shy.
In the late afternoon the dining room is empty. It's nice to get him all to myself for a while in the quiet. We pull up to a sunny window and settle in.
I knit. He reads. He did take notice of the yarn today. He wanted to help me pull it out. I had to discourage that since I can't knit as fast as he can pull. Luckily, it's easy to redirect his attention these days.
Wow....I had no idea what to expect as there is no picture on the ball band but I really like this colorway. They look like summer fun-even though they are hot, scratchy wool and man, it's hot outside. Hot. Hot. Hot.
