The frost was on the dandelions.


I was not pleased to see the frost in the garden this morning. We have this rule in Canada.
"Nothing in the ground before the 24th of May."
Spring frost is so unpredictable. I put the heater on in the car in the morning and there are days when I have needed the AC on when I leave the office. It is all very up and down.

Yesterday was a quiet day for me. Carl was away for most of the day. I knit. I napped and of course I thought of my Mom. It was good to have contact with all of my children this weekend. It helped.
I love this picture. You can tell my Dad loved my mother. She was a special person. When Dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer he said he would go to a hospice. Mom kept him at home and cared for him. The week before he passed away he told me, "Your Mother has been a tower of strength, I could not have endured this without her."

Granny was always my sounding board. If something wasnt right she would say. I value the fact that I had such a strong role model like her. Her songs and words of wisdom echo in my brain every time I think of her, Grampy always had the latest and greatest to show me. I loved them very much, and mum your cut from the same cloth. There isnt anyone who could ever replace you, thank you for being there in my time of need. YOUR AWSOME!!

Hi Susan, cold day here, waiting for the plumber to show up, so went back to the begining of your posting.
Can't believe how much we have in common.
