Mother is finally getting used to living at Sabine Retirement and Rehabilitation. It has taken a while, but we have finally found activities that she enjoys.

One is putting puzzles together. Kitty puzzles, to be exact. Her room is decorated with pictures of kittens, including my brother’s big orange cat, which he calls Orangelo!

She’s also named two of her other kitty photos. One is Sweetie and the other is named after my cat, Gibbs.

While I was vacationing with the girls in Orange Beach two weeks ago, Kenneth visited every day. He was there to check and be sure she was eating properly and he brought a puzzle to put together. (It had kittens, of course.)

They began piecing the puzzle together—all 300 pieces. Mother was so excited that she insisted that they put the entire puzzle together!! It took several hours, but she had lots of fun.

Hubby-dear took the puzzle home and framed it, before taking it back to Mom. He even hung it in her room!!
