The last few years were difficult for her, as she began to experience forgetfulness, and then became weaker. She spent the last 8 weeks in hospital and I calculated that I made 60 trips to visit her there, and I don’t begrudge one minute of it. We had sweet times, but also some stressful ones. The hospital staff were wonderful and kind. I am going to miss them in the days to come.
We have so many pleasant memories of our times together. I will always cherish them.
A couple photos follow:
Mom and Dad in 1937 before their marriage, or shortly after:
My Dad was 9 years older than Mom, and was her Grade 8 teacher. We often laughed about that!
and Mom, on her 90th birthday:
So many things I could say, but I’ll say just one:
SHE WAS A GOOD MOM!

How blessed we are to have a group of friends who care for, and pray for each other.
Some of our family members are also dearest friends.
Have a wonderful weekend, and I hope you will take time to enjoy some time with YOUR friends and family.

The very vivid blue hydrangea inspired this vignette in blue, to join Tea Time Tuesday today.
A little arrangement in a cup and saucer (Shelley Dainty Blue) ….lungwort, which is an early bloomer with pink and blue flowers.
Thrift shop china, a Denby breakfast cup and saucer, Carlton blue and white, are added to this little setting.
For our tea today I prepared a rhubarb-strawberry crisp, …..oh, so juicy and fresh…
Tomorrow the Prince of Wales and Camilla are arriving in Winnipeg, and I am hoping to get to see him on Wednesday (at a distance of course!) This long weekend is honoring his ancestor, Queen Victoria.

We are home from the desert! Although our snow banks here are still very large, it is good to be home. I missed seeing all your blogs (no internet at the house we rented)
We saw some nice strawberries when shopping for groceries today, so I made some filled cream puffs for our tea .
The strawberries included with the filling use an unusual ingredient…pepper! I wasn’t sure I would like it, but it adds a certain depth to the flavour.
The recipe may be found here
I am joining Sandi’s tea time Tuesday today..
