Friends and family Friday
Squirrels have been climbing the sunflowers in the front of the house to get to the seeds.
This one sunflower fell to the ground and Verne was so impressed with its beauty that he decided at once to bring it home to his mum.
Abigail enjoyed her piece of cake at the family celebration last weekend.
She just walked about the yard grabbing cake from various plates...
And who could say no to those chocolate pudding eyes.
Abigail brought her book over for my mum to read.
I will always be grateful for this time.
Last summer my mum sold her home and moved into a first floor apartment.
The second floor became available at the same time and Joe and I moved in.
My mum is 85 and my sister is fighting stage 4 colon cancer so these times are very special to us.
On Labour day my Aunts came over for a get together. We hadn’t seen them since Christmas time.
It was a wonderful treat for us all to be together and we had lots of laughs!
My brother and his fiancé were planning to have a very small wedding last year but they postponed it when her brother passed away quite suddenly in a car accident. This year they got married but didn’t tell family until after the fact. We had a small celebration on Saturday with just our immediate family.
While we were all sitting outside this one little cardinal kept joining us. He would sit on the grass just behind us, then fly to the back of an unoccupied chair, and then sit on the fence listening to our conversation.
It is said that some people think of cardinals like the spirit of a lost one visiting from heaven.
