i had no idea what it was until a few days ago. sure, it sat nicely on my desktop…along with a few other icons i scroll over while getting to the 2 or 3 i actually use. but now, 2,112 miles (to be exact) separating one “home” from another, i have found the benefits of modern technology.
mom always talked about the sunglasses granny used to wear.
you know, the kind you get from the eye doctor?
you know, the kind they make you wear when leaving the doctor’s office after you’re eyes have been dilated?
you know, the kind that wrap around your entire face?
you know what i’m talking about.
well, after all that talk, look what i found…
like mother, like daughter.
i must not be too far behind…
it just seemed natural to have everyone in one house for the weekend…
natural, except it wasn’t.
natural, except it hasn’t been like that for the past 10 years.
natural, except we live in 3 different locations.
natural, except it’s never been that way.
but it was most enjoyable for a few days…
until 2 of us parted ways today.
i will miss that younger brother–not older, nor significant other as oftentimes assumed–of mine. but i know our reunion will come soon…
i’m pretty sure you must be a bama native to appreciate these.
mother catfish and her minnows.
MIA mother frog and her eggs left on the leaves.
mother turtle hole without the egg.
MIA mother turtle leaving behind her egg…exposed.
yesterday was grandma’s birthday…a perfect cause for a celebration! i’m so thankful i just happened to be in town for the occasion. so it was decided to have a little party for the matriarch of the family, a little family gathering.
post-lunch hanging out.
happy birthday, grandma!
