there’s a plant shop on the way to the hospital where my mother in law is staying. the husband stops to buy flowers and house plants for Kayla because she likes the green stuff. He picked me up a tiny, scraggly looking plum tree… now that it is blooming, i see that it has great potential. He is good at stuff like that….
my oldest is 15 now.
nearly as tall as i am.
most of the time moody and grumpy.
i still remember the day he was born like it was yesterday.
daffodils and purple flowers and a big pot that my husband’s uncle made…
a potter in the family,
how cool is that!!!
showed the latest quilt to a group of older japanese women and pointed out how very beautiful even tiny, worn-out scraps from old kimono can be… told them this is an “art quilt” and how very much fun i had making it…. some of them told me they would bring me some “old clothes” they have at home… i wonder what they will bring!!!!
Happy birthday Kazu…
you are my sunshine
my pride and joy
and a whole lot of new grey hair
that seems to be increasing rapidly lately.
