Dad thought he needed to go to the store, but after checking the fridge found he didn't need anything. I suggested we go for a drive. We wound up at my Aunt Alice and Uncle Robert Feeler's house. We had a nice visit. Although, I was saddened at the condition Aunt Alice was in. She's very weak and her mind is just not the same. Aunt Alice has always been a whirlwind, never winding down. I have always looked up to Aunt Alice. It was hard to see her that way. Uncle Robert is doing pretty good but he doesn't get out much. When we left, I was even more grateful for how active Dad is and able to take care of himself.
Dad must be pretty lonely this week. He called me ten times yesterday, plus I went up to visit with him for awhile. I don't mind the calls, they are a way to connect with Dad throughout the day.
Dad has come to depend on me being here for him since I'm not working right now. It's a good time.
We went to the Vichy Wye to eat lunch. I'm so full; I'm not sure if I can eat supper. I feel like I could take a nap. But then I wouldn't get the yard (leaves!) mowed. I keep putting it off.
Had a great day and feeling grateful for time spent with Dad.
