Re: Happy June in the Coffee House

cl, the acting was well done. I can understand you wanting to play the mother's part. There is much to think about in the play. Anything focused on the extreme emotions surrounding death is not entertainment for me or for him. I have 1/2 hr til mother's physical therapy. Have done some things at my ...

Re: Justifiable June with Cleansweepers

laurlind, if the plastic drawer thing is way to big for what you have, maybe you should get just a smaller plastic storage tub/bin, and separate your crafts by shoeboxes placed into the bin. I am looking forward to doing crafts again - definitely like embroidery of various kinds, and am knitting a p...

Re: Happy June in the Coffee House

I had seen movie Steel magnolias a long time ago - didn't remember teh plot. We enjoyed the first half, but not the ending where the daughter died. Since we both have lost spouses to death, we find productions that include death to be difficult to watch. We much prefer light hearted events. But his ...

Re: Happy June in the Coffee House

cl, nice to organize those. Did you use clear canning jars? or some other storage container? We have a toilet seat riser for mother - it is very difficult to clean. Her toilet is blue, and it is white so it stands out. Does not suit her preferences. I have given mom her pills, done exercise class, e...
