Have To Pack

As usual I left my packing for the last minute. We are leaving for California in the morning, and not coming back until Monday afternoon.

I have no idea if I will have the time or strength to write, or even if I’ll know how to do it from a different city. I hope I can do it, even if I don’t write every night.

Our Memoir Workshop rehearsal went well today.  It is next Tuesday at 1pm. We will get it up on the www.anthemauthors.com website as soon as possible.

I saw an ad this morning from our local police department about protecting yourself from con artists. This applies to caregivers as well as seniors. Never give out pesonal information to anyone, keep your doors locked, your alarm on if you have one. Trust your instincts, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. Pay attention in your neighborhood. Watch out for each other.

And give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing. Adopt A Caregiver and tell them your friend Helene sent you.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Early Valentines Day

Today was an early Valentines Day for the members of the Henderson Senior Center who came to our home  to see our collection of kissing couples. They had a wonderful time, and we had a wonderful time talking about different pieces of art and the stories around them. All faces were smiling as they to get on the bus to go to lunch. An outing that will stay with them at least for a few days. Howard and I loved it. A reporter and photographer were here also from the Henderson Home News and I think they enjoyed themselves also. I hope so. Will keep you posted if the article appears online.

I talked about my book Behind The Mask, and Adopt A Caregiver and a few of the women already were part of my program. They spoke highly about it. The fact they are doing their part, writing emails to someone who is a caregiver gives me great pleasure. In  a few days I will be telling you some of the comments I have received from both the caregiver and the one who adopted them.

As you all know, I have not been well, and I am far behind in my paperwork. But writing on this blog every night is a must for me. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

Our Memoir Workshop is coming along nicely. I hope we will be able to do a great job and maybe take our workshop to some senior homes, or even do this workshop in one of our libraries.

Give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing. Adopt A Caregiver and tell them your friend Helene sent you.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
