Here they are doing an early-morning loom project together.
We conquered my mending basket, fixing whatever was worth it, throwing away things that weren't, and turning other things into newer, grander articles of clothing. And of course, the cats helped with this project.Unfortunately, I have almost no pictures of my mom -- probably because I was too busy cracking the whip instead of holding a camera. :) I do, however, have way too many pictures of her adorable kitten Nyki!!!Nyki is so much fun! She loves these furry little mice and she plays fetch like a dog -- it's the craziest thing! She plays and plays and usually we get tired of it before she does. She likes complicated retrievals -- if a throw lands in the middle of the room with no challenging obstacle, Nyki will only bring the mouse partway back, as if punishing the thrower for their poor throw. But if it's a good, challenging retrieval, she will bring it back and drop it on the thrower's foot! ~
Thank you so very much, Mom. Words just don't cut it. And thank you so very much, too, Dad, for willingly sharing Mom for so long, and being patient every time we extended her return date. It was a huge blessing in so many ways! We love you both! We look forward to seeing both of you in a few weeks during your regularly-scheduled, just-for-fun visit!!!
