Visit with Mom

April 5th, 2014 at 08:09 pm

Last weekend we drove out to visit my Mom. She is doing well since my father passed away last year. The only residual item is that she still does have problems sleeping. I started an online bank account for her. She was very disgusted with the low rates at local banks -- She earned a whopping 10 cents from an account with Chase. Discover Bank ended up being a good choice for her. 0.85% interest plus they do send statements in the mail periodically. I handle the account online but at least the paperwork will ease her mind.

The flowers at her farm are very bright and colorful this time of year. Our dogs especially liked trumping through them to look for lizards!

We also spent some time at our property which is located nearby. The cherry trees and other fruit trees are in bloom. Hopefully the birds and other animals do not enjoy all the fruit this time. Other types of trees on site are olives (I have process these as Greek olives in the past), pecan, walnut, plums, pomegranate, peaches, nectarines, Asian pears, Bartlett pears, and several kinds of apples. Also several varieties of grapes. I have made red wine a few years back with success. White wine not so successful. At home we have a very prolific apricot tree and some lemon and guava trees. Small dwarf lemon that is always loaded, and some lemongrass. Tomorrow is the day to work on our garden and plant tomatoes and more.

    Glad to hear your mother is doing pretty well. You might research Melatonin supplements to help her sleep or check with her doctor. My parents in their 60s take 3mg. I take it from time to time with no side effects, except a good nights sleep. Sleep is so important!

    Sounds (and looks) like a nice visit. Smile
