Seventy Today

Mom, with needle and thread

Hard to believe that Mom would have turned 70 today.
In this photo she's wearing some blouse I picked up at a garage sale for her. I realize now that she probably only put it on because I was coming over; normally she didn't wear large patterns or bold colours.
I'm still feeling like shit after two days without eating or being able to keep even water down till late last night, when a few crackers stayed the course. Today I'm on the mend, about to try some poached eggs and hoping my head will unfuzz. Has to; I'm getting right tired of this.
With luck, I'll put in my usual working day and then dig out my copy of Chicago, a favourite of Mom's, or Delovely, the last film we watched together, and imagine she's with me for the annual viewing.


  1. Sorry to hear you are feeling so poorly. Enjoy that Chicago and think fondly of your mom.

  2. Sorry to hear you are sick. Hopefully you are on the mend. It sure is tough moving forward without Mom. Hope the day goes well.

  3. Lovely remembrance of your Mom. Hope your feeling better soon!

  4. Love your pic. so sweet. I feel for you and sending love. Especially is a flu is also on the table ;(

  5. A few bites of poached egg and some tea seem to have done the trick. I feel human again and have been reminded how much my usual good health should be appreciated.

  6. Thanks for sharing your mom with us. She has such a beautiful, sincere looking smile. Actually, I think I've seen this same smile somewhere else. Yes, I can certainly see the resemblance in you.
