Back Home

I went to visit my parents. They just celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. Next week will be Mom's 91st birthday.
Here is their wedding photo, taken by my aunt.
My Dad has been in hospital with a broken hip (no, they cannot replace or pin this fracture) and my Mom is spending 4 to 5 hours a day with him.
And she has decided the house has to be cleared of 55 years accumulation, this week. Next week will not do.
I spent a lot of my time there cooking and freezing food for her, as she refuses to eat at the hospital, so did not spend much time with my camera.
Not that the weather cooperated. Snow flurries that never stayed on the ground, winds and cold temperatures. I saw half a dozen crocuses that were out of the buds, but not open yet.
No pussywillows, even.
I am emotionally drained, but recovering...
Thank you for your thoughts!!

May your father recover soon. And best compliments for your mother's birthday and parents' anniversary.

It does wear one out taking care of others. I so remember those days when my parents were around.

Relax and recover from the emotional and physical exhaustion of it all.
