a short detour for my week
My mother had surgery Saturday. She is fine. However, it took me way too far back to when we nearly lost her 3 years ago. I spent all Saturday morning trying to breathe for her from here. It was all very sudden and no way could I get there. So I am all packed up and leaving today. I guess I should call her and tell her I am coming. I have boxes of plums and apricots on the counter, and hungry cats prowling the kitchen. The neighbor promises to distribute the zucchini, so I guess I am good to go. Oh, I need to find a jar and take Mom a plum and a cot. I hear the tomatoes are in in IL where she lives, so that will be something else to look forward to.
