Quick Trip to Oregon


I am back from a quick trip to Portland to visit my mom.

Sad news.  She is not doing well.  Or maybe I should say she is doing as well as can be expected for a 93 year old woman with congestive heart failure and her kidneys are failing.

A long story short.  She needs to be moved into an assisted living center and so I needed to be there to ensure that she was not alone at all until that could happen.  My brother sent for me.  Now my mom is being moved and family has gathered and she will be moved possibly as soon as next Tuesday.

The saddest part of all of this, there are many sad parts,  is that she has to choose between her cats as she can only have one.

She has three and they are big babies.  I will show you pics of them at another time.

But for now, I want to share a walk that I took yesterday morning when one of my sisters came and gave me a break.


Doesn’t this look way different than my usual lake walks or my break time trail?


Can I just say that I cannot wait to move back home?



So beautiful this country.


I cannot wait to become an Oregonian again.


You can take the girl out of the trees, but you can’t take the trees out of the girl.

More later on the trip and my mother soon.

I hope you are well friends.

  1. Sorry to hear about your mother. Hopefully assisted living will make her comfortable and help her out. I’m with you on the trees……gotta have my trees 🙂

    • I hope that her meds get straight. It was hard while I was there trying to make sure she got them all at the right time. It takes a pro! yes, gotta have trees. I cannot wait to retire!!! Not soon enough! xoxoxox
