Home from vacation

This post has been challenging to write. I had several  posts written about my vacation, just awaiting photos to be added when I finally had a good internet connection. It is a major pain working on a new laptop, when I am used to my keyboard.  I just like sitting at my desk.

I am going to attempt some photo mosaics of my trip. So hopefully, fields of crops, windmills, lakes and rivers, and  Some funky stuff will appear someday.

I have also been fighting a cold and dizzy spells but feel better today.

I managed to make 2 blouses for me, knits,  1 bathing suit( I felt too ill to actually go in a pool at the hotels coming home) and I have also started both the skirt and the pants.  I finally put thread in the machine this week, so just tidying up a few ends.

While we were away, my mother passed away just 2 days shy of her 94th birthday. She was in a coma, when I made it home, she was bright and talkative the day before her stroke. I had sent the blouse I had made her while we were away. She liked the colour and fabric.

So while I am home from vacation, I am still adjusting to a home life without my mom.

    So good to see you back…I was just thinking about you last night and wondering: when?
    Thank you for your message at Thanksgiving. I know it is so hard to adjust to that mom-sized hole in your life. Moms are special people who live on in us.
    I’m looking forward to seeing your mosaics. I’ve never tried that.

    I was so sorry to hear about your mother. At least she wasn’t in any pain.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss… my sympathies to you and your family. I am glad she was able to see and enjoy the blouse you made her…

    Oh my! It’s a trend – my mom died on Oct 23rd and another friend’s mom died last Wednesday. So sorry to hear about yours too, hon’. It’s not a trend we want to continue. Big hugs!

    And speaking of trends, so that’s where my dizzies went! You don’t want them. They get to hanging around. Though I think I would take them over the flu that DH has at the moment. Ick. Feel better soon!
