Change in the Air

I wrote a Friday’s Fave Five post yesterday and accidentally deleted the whole thing before publishing. I considered rewriting it, but decided to move on instead. So, here we are starting fresh on what promises to be a busy Saturday morning.

I canned the last of the beets from my garden yesterday. Gerry’s going to head to the local green grocer early this morning to snag 25 pounds of Roma tomatoes (they go fast so one has to be there early) and I’ve asked him to get beets so I can can a few more jars. I’m going to slow roast the tomatoes and will go through a few more boxes before the season is over. My kitchen will be a fragrant place today!

We’re making adjustments downstairs and I’m doing a long-overdue purge of the closet in my woman cave in preparation for our daughter and granddaughter staying with us for a time. That’s the big news around here. Laurinda’s work is transferring her here to Kamloops! Makiya is already here and will start school on Tuesday; Laurinda will follow in a few weeks. They will both stay with us until Laurinda finds a place for them.

This is a grandma’s dream come true and an answer to many, many prayers. We are thrilled to be able to help ease the burden of solo parenting that weighs heavy on Laurinda, and more grand days with Makiya? Sign me up! There are adjustments to be made, but we’ll figure them out along the way. Meanwhile, after many years, I’m thinking ahead to school lunches and homework and after school activities.



I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Awesome! It’s good to have family around.

  2. So delighted to hear this – you sound happy and buoyant. May there be many blessing in it for you all …
