Arrived back from St. John's yesterday. It was one of the best times I've had there. Laurie had moved into a new house a few days before so we both spent Saturday, Sunday and Monday opening boxes and moving furniture, putting things away, all that sort of stuff. It being a three story house my legs got terribly stiff and wobbly going up and down with things. Slept like a log each night as we were pretty tired at the end of each day. However, we did make a dent in it and I was so happy to be there to help.
Tuesday I went to my parents as my brother was flying in from the states that night. He got in quite late so it was about 1:30 am before I got to bed. Very late for me. Eight o'clock the next morning I was still in bed and I heard my father say to my mother "I hope she's not dead in there, this is not like her at all." lol. So, I stayed with the parents until I came home yesterday. It was wonderful. Lots of laughs as my brother is very funny, with a dry sense of humor. My parents said they hadn't laughed so much in a long time and to have their two children under the same roof for a few days was the best thing that could have happened for them.
Roger kept the home fires burning while I was away. He lost four pounds while I was gone. I expect now that I'm back, that will change. I didn't get any time to go around and take pictures. Sorry Pete! I did take these of family.
Parents reading papers. Checking out the flyers.
My 88 year old father having a drink. He's got more energy than all of us put together.
Lunch on Wednesday. My nephew and Laurie were there.
These are men I make. I haven't made any for years and these ones I gave my mother. I'm thinking I may get back into making them again over the winter.
