Holidays! It’s an event packed weekend. My parents are celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary. My brother is turning 47 on the same day. And Sunday my first grandbaby-daughter is being baptised into the family of God.
Today my two sisters, my parents and I traveled to visit my brother who lives 2 hours away from the Farm. The day was filled with laughter, strange movie references “These are not the ‘droids you are looking for!”, stories that might have sounded like a kidnapping to someone evesdropping, “You are not listening to me. I have the pizza.”, and twenty questions on the trip home that started conversations about food, bucket lists, places we’d been and a few tales out of school about school. Nana, sisters M and N played Wii Dance Off 4 with nephews GR and Y. Even dad had a pretty good day. Naturally we had to stop at Morden’s Chocolates for Russian Mints, Mixed Nut Brittle, bags of ‘seconds’ and Almond Crunch Clusters (I should have bought some of the latter…).
Pictured above is the quilt I am racing to finish by Sunday for my grand-daughter. I am half done the binding as I type. Cute, isn’t it? Just like my A.A.E.P!
