It sounds like your family is very special. It is great that you are able to come together and celebrate her life. Today will be tough but if you can remember how happy it would make her to have her children and grandchildren together, then it should be a bit easier.

Easily done. Just tell me which picture and where to send it.
I'm having a big mug of hot water. I haven't had that in a long time, even though it's not real hard to make.

Second mug of Anniversary Breakfast Blend. I just hate walking into the office on a Monday morning and getting hit with a half dozen different emergencies. More tea. A LOT more tea...

You and yours will be in my thoughts and prayers as you move through this time. I agree with ProfCrash that your mom would probably have loved that the family was together.

*hugs* Betty! "Caregiver sleep" mode is exhausting! You have months of restful sleep to catch up on. But deep sleep is healing.

Your family sounds wonderful - share the happy memories and the sad goodbyes together!

And don't forget to visit here too when you can [you can drop by in your PJ's and tousled hair] - we're family too!

Cloudy
The sky is gray and white and cloudy,
Sometimes I think it's hanging down on me.
And it's a hitchhike a hundred miles.
I'm a rag-a-muffin child.
Pointed finger-painted smile.
I left my shadow waiting down the road for me a while.

( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=545ih5ygngs )

Good morning, all! The nice sunny weather didn't stick around, today is cloudy but I have to stay inside this morning anyway. The 'checkers' are coming around today; one group checks the fire detectors in each room to make sure they are working, and another group will check all the sinks and drains to make sure there are no blockages or leaks. Nice service! They even tell you just about to the hour when they will be at your door. This year both groups are coming on the same day, and within an hour of each other so I can leave the house by 11am! That's service!

I'll pass the time waiting for them with a big mug of East India Company's "Royal Breakfast" tea, a bowl of miso soup, and a grilled chicken breast. I really want to go walking today, so I'm going to 'walk to my chores!' The supermarket I want to go to is about 2km away, and if I take a round-about route there, I can get in a nice 8km walk... so long as it doesn't rain! Maybe I need to say some prayers to Charlie's 'Iron Goddess of Mercy...' Here's what she looked like yesterday...

Allright: the freedom I had in Caïro is done. I am in the south of Egypt and for our protection we got an police- escort and there's a policeman in front of the hotel. They take real good care of us tourists. Well, I did like roaming Caïro's streets on my own.

In my cup: nescafé, warm

I travelled the whole day; saw several pyramids; had good food and it is fantastic and nicely warm 34 degrees.

Ouch. I went years without one, but since I got this one I find it hard to think about going back.

Betty: Hugs and supportive thoughts from the Wet Coast. Sleep is a great restorative, use it.

A switch back to something I haven't had in a while. Jade Tie Gwan Yin. While this is, technically, an Oolong, it is way over on the green side. Brewed at 180F, it has a lovely nose, and a light, clean mouth. Not robust, but quite nice.
