I know for some of you, spring can't come soon enough. I could say the same thing, but here in Calgary, we do get a reprieve with Chinooks in the winter. Chinooks are warm westerly winds that blow in every few weeks and warm our temps significantly. This past week, we have enjoyed a few days well above freezing...and it feels so good!
I want to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for your kindness and support during this difficult time in our family. Your words were truly heart-warming and appreciated. I am blessed to have such wonderful friends.
I can hardly believe it has already been 3 weeks since my mother's passing. I have spent my days thinking of her fondly and remembering. I brought back a beautiful original photo of her when she was a model and a photograph taken by my father that was a favorite of his. I will cherish them always. My mother didn't sew or collect things in vast quantities. She loved dishes though...and I am happy to have a few of her most treasured ones. Dad still has a few more...but they can wait for awhile.
I am just starting to get back at it a bit...I have been cleaning and getting rid of more "STUFF". I am wanting to have a home that is comfortable and cozy, but not cluttered.
The picture below is of my Dad and his little 2 year old Scottish Terrier, Duffy. We grew up with Scotties and at the age of 88, Dad decided it was time for another. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago while I was there. Dad is now 90, but he can out walk me...and probably the dog! Dad looks a little grumpy, but Duffy was not wanting to sit up...and so a little frustration was setting in!!
Hope you are enjoying your day!
