It is another Tuesday, and time once again for T over at Bleubeard's and Elizabeth's blog.
Last week was a busy one for me. I had a few appointments on my calendar and some home things that needed doing. It was also a hot week, our first one this month in New Hampshire. We ended up at my MIL's home 3 times last week. One evening she had fallen and couldn't get up so we had to go on a rescue mission. And then with the heat we went up both days over the weekend to check in on her and cool off in the lake.
Luckily her home is on a small pond so we did have a bit of water time, to cool off not only from the heat but from her house also. She has casement style windows in much of the house which she can no longer open herself. Even though there is an AC in her bedroom, she doesn't want to leave her bedroom door open because it will make the AC run too much and that will drive up her electric bill. Even when we tell her she needs some air moving to cool off her house. She is also getting confused and forgetful, not just from the heat, and someone needs to check in that she is taking her medicines and even eating.
Sometimes we help her down to the lake with us, but it was too hot this past weekend, so she sat on the deck off the kitchen and every now and again called down sometime to us. That meant we had to go up and answer her because her hearing is so bad (and she wouldn't spend the money for a hearing aid) she can't hear you when you reply. Even me when I yell up to her, and I have one of those voices that, to put it nicely, carries very well.
