Thank you for asking how things are going. So far so good. Dad has arrived. He likes his room. A TV was installed and a bundle of Russian channels was ordered for him on Roku. A tablet was provided for his convenience so he could Skype my stepmom.
I have made an apple and strawberry crumble and he has eaten some of it, so dessert was a success. He also complimented baked potatoes, which I had nuked for five minute in the microwave, and declined the carefully stuffed salmon. 🙂
The house is completely clean. We’ve had a sharp drop in temperature, from low 90’s to 40’s with a very cold nasty rain. Yesterday, a short while after I walked away to work, I heard a squeaking noise. My father, having been denied the opportunity to repair or clean something in the house, was outside. In the cold rain. Washing windows.
I’m waiting to see if he develops a fever. Hopefully not. Fingers crossed.
