MY FRIEND "ELIZABETH"

 
Today I visited my friend Elizabeth, and we posed for a picture.  I told her she had friends she would never meet personally through our friendship.  We visited for almost an hour and I'm really getting to know her, and her cute sense of humor.  She told me an elderly man who lives several blocks away come to visit, but he really come to see the young nurse~ HaHa.
 

This is the little house I called the "Bird House" because across this fence, Elizabeth would feed flocks of birds.   Before I met her I called her "The Bird Lady."

Now Elizabeth lives in "The White House" so now I call her The First Lady."
 
 
 
This is Sandra, Elizabeth's care giver.  She runs the White House, and really loves her guests, as she calls them.  She's a sweet Christian, and has Bible Study every other Thursday's for the guests.  I'm going to drop in next week.
 
For several years, you have only know my friend by the watercolor I did when I first met her.  Now you've truly met her.  I'm sure I'll be sharing more pictures and stories.

    1. Elizabeth would love your painting of birds. I told her I feed the birds in my back yard for her, since she no longer can live in her little house.

    1. Betsy, she's in a wonderful place. She looks so good, and they really watch after her. Her sons come almost every night to see her, and sometimes take her out to dinner.

      I often wonder where the flock went after she was gone. They were at that fence every morning and afternoon.

  7. She is in very good hands, and I imagine she appreciates your visits and chats a lot. Next time you see her tell her how long it took to get the birds to come into my garden, [10,000 miles from where she lives] Dave

    1. Dave I will surely tell her that! I know she'll get a chuckle from that. Thought of you today, when I put out the bird seed.

  11. So happy you made a post about Elizabeth, I've been wondering how she's been doing in her new home. Looks like she's doing just great.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. There will only be 8 of us this year. I'm doing the turkey and green bean casserole, of course I'm not good at making stuffing, so I use Stove Top, one daughter is going to make Mac & Cheese, one is going to make Sweet Potato Casserole, store bought hot rolls, this year, jellied cranberry sauce from the can and two other containers
    from the Deli, one is Cranberry Salad and one is Cranberry relish, I have two frozen pies I will bake Wed. night a pumpkin and a Razzle berry. Probably a plate with celery sticks and carrots, but I doubt anyone will eat them. LOL

    1. Patty your dinner sounds delicious. Our is very similar. We will have about 20 of us, and I'm in charge of turkey, dressing and gravy..as every year. But I enjoy doing it. The girls will bring all the trimmings, including pies...except, I will make a pecan for my SIL. (his favorite). Happy Thanksgiving Patty...
