Alzheimer’s caregivers support group & pre-birthday party

First, I apologize! It seems the link I posted yesterday for NASA (space photos) no longer works. Perhaps I can find a better one later, or do you know of any?

For today’s PiBoIdMo I wrote down an idea for a picture book. Idea #19 on day 13. Still nothing more on my NaNo novel. I may have made a mistake by trying to do that this year, half way through the month already!

Tonight I went to a meeting of the Alzheimer Caregivers Support Group. It is something I don’t like to miss. We’re a small group that meets once a month and are free to ask questions, talk about our concerns, worries, problems, also sharing what good things have happened and what works for us. Our group moderators provide us with information and sometimes we have guest speakers. This time, since Saturday is my (rather important) birthday, I took cupcakes and Ambrosia (a fruit dessert) I’d made for us to share, for a sort of little pre-birthday party.  🙂 

From what we (my sister and I) are going through with our experience with Alzheimer’s Disease, I’m gathering ideas for a book – ideas based on anecdotes from which come chapter titles, such as The Fire Extinguisher, The Hedge, The Car. Who knows whether this book will become a reality. It’s one thing to have the experience, quite another to write it out in an interesting and captivating way that someone else would like to read about.

Tomorrow I may not post about my PiBoIdMo and NaNoWriMo progress since it is Book Reading Challenge day here on my blog, but I will update on Friday.

If you are taking part in any challenges this month, how are you doing? How’s your writing coming along, and are you participating in my book reading challenge?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

    Congrats on having a support group to go to! I’m sure it really helps in your spirits. Hope your father is doing well (as well as can be expected) and that you guys are pulling through. I know it’s tough. I know.

    Glad you’re pulling a positive out of everything though, that book sounds like an amazing idea! Hope you can make it happen!

    • Thanks, Jamie! This is what I was hoping for. I should have known you would have a link to share. 🙂

      A support group is a place for encouragement, giving and receiving, I have found. I hope I can make that book happen, too!

  2. Happy birthday! (this is the benefit of being logged up in emails – you get to be the “first” to wish you a happy birthday) 🙂 Hope all is well with you. 🙂
