Monday morning I was on the road by 5:30 AM heading westward to Indiana for a day’s visit with Mother.
I arrived around 8:45 AM having experienced about five minutes of heavy traffic as I rounded Indianapolis during rush hour.
Mother is continually improving and I am so proud of how eager she is to complete 5-6 miles of walking each day. I should be so motivated. She seems comfortable and engaged in the day to day activities at Green Hill and each visit I hear many of the same comments, “Your mom is so sweet” or “I just love your mother.”
We dined at a nice family cafe on the west side of Watseka Illinois which is the closest city and then ended the day with some shopping.
I decided to grab to go from Shapiro’s Deli near Lucas Oil Stadium but ended up eating at a corner table that looked onto the intersections of West McCarty and Meridian streets with a view of Indianapolis a few blocks north. It was relaxing and delicious.
Before heading eastward on I-70 I drove past the President Benjamin Harrison home on Delaware Street. I absolutely love this Italianate structure.
The return home was uneventful but enjoyable listening to various topics on History Vault.
