Happy Easter!

Bill's Easter decor, he filled the cart with Nick's favourite eggs!

Happy Easter, it was a lovely dinner with most of my family. My 80 year old mom, June joined us for the dinner & I set the table with her 'good dishes & glasses' which were given to me by her, several years ago. I asked her how she liked the table but she did not recognize her dishes. She commented that the table looked nice. Her memory is not what it use to be & I treasure my time with her these days. It was a very enjoyable supper filled with laughter of good times & memories, mom knows hers is dimming, I just said, "don't forget me mom" she replied "I'll try not to".
Beautiful table setting, mom made me the circular knitted placemats many years ago, wow how they now compliment her dishes! Now the placemats she must have remembered because she said she was going to start to knit that pattern again! She knits everyday, my grandpa use to say "she's knitting for Britain", as a child I never understood what he was saying, I'd just smile.

Mom & I
