Once a Mother, Always a Mother!
Back home tonight. What a busy ten days we have had. First a smooth flight with wonderful views of clouds and the fields and forest below as we flew west . . .
Then a walk down Stephen Street in Calgary under wonderful blue skies . . .
a rodeo in Airdrie . . .
a visit to Drumheller on a day when the thermometer registered 40 degrees Celsius and a brisk dry wind was blowing . . .
An afternoon in Banff amidst the glorious Canadian Rockies . . .
A visit with new friends in Wilderness Village RV Resort just outside Rocky Mountain House, multiple trips to the Marble Slab for icecream, evenings spent catching up on the day’s events at the Olympics, chatting and sharing good food, hours at a borrowed sewing machine hemming ten pairs of pants for my son ……
And the creation of yet another of my ‘memory’ projects ….
My daughter-in-law entreated me to help her solve the problem of a crowded closet by finding a way to help preserve my son’s memories is a more compact fashion. The result – a pillow constructed using the sweater my son wore on their first date as a base, logos from a pile of too small golf shirts that represented past work experiences and work related events and trim cut from one of the golf shirts. What do you think?
Did I mention that the memory quilt with T-shirts from high school sports activities was a hit?
What a week!
