Until it was time for my Mom to leave, that is. I love her dearly, and realize that she is old. But a few years ago, she surprised me with the comment that she believes that my birthday is also her birthday because, after all, she birthed me. It left me speechless. Really, your birthday too! I get one special day a year, and she has to turn the attention to her. Last night as she was preparing to leave, she kissed me and said ,"Happy Birthday to us." "To us?" I asked. "Well, after all it is MY birthday too," she replied. I simply told her that I thought it was time for her to leave. I realize that this shouldn't bother me so much, but it does. Moving on...
As I said earlier, the day was beautiful. Since we had lows last week in the 30's, we had taken out the air conditioners. But with a high yesterday in the 70's, the house warmed quickly. And we opened the windows. It was wonderful to feel the summer-like breeze coming in through the windows. The windows were open all night long, and this morning the house smells so fresh. I understand that the temps are going to drop again, but it was a welcome bit of summer. Time marches on, and I need to kick it into high gear and start doing some sewing again. Sew much to do with sew little time. Have a great week.
