Walks along the dam in San Angelo. I used to love doing that with her. We would go early in the mornings, when it was still cool out. Walk one to two miles. Plenty of weight was lost on those walks. We saw javalina hogs, deer, and rattlers. We would walk and talk. I will miss that, but life goes on and so do I. Much love mom, much love.
This was my mom as a kid, I can see the resemblance in all three of us, my sister and brother. She was an only child by her mother. Strong willed, and so very independent. And so very missed. My mom was a giver, she was nice and caring; but she was also a Scorpio, and if you got on her bad side, you better watch out! There are a lot of personality traits I got from her, some not so good, but most very good. I am so blessed to have had her for 43 of my years. Mom I love you.
She was so happy this day;was the day her first born grand son graduated high school. This Bob Cat was a shining star in her eye this day. I am so happy she got to see these things. Love you mom.
A photo of my step dad and mom, we visted Marathon TX, and this was Santa Rita No 1. It is a oil derek. Those were some good times we had, taking long drives and rides. Something that I will miss dearly. She sure loved to go. I miss you mom, I have you in my heart always. Perhaps I too will find someone who dosen’t mind driving, and me riding to long, and adventurous places.
It’s been a while since I’ve written anything on the regular. I am very slowly getting myself back. I know it will take a while. Always a work -in-progress. So this morning, the bus did not come, there I and another woman staning there. She calls cap metro customer service, they say it is a mechanical issue, but do not offer when ir if they will send a back-up bus. See this lousy route as it may be only has one bus making the rounds wvery our on the weekends, and two busses back and forth on the weekdays. And it goes in a short loop, not like it was goong all the way to China and back, but just to one park and ride, then to the Howard Station. Anyhoo, this lady calls a ride share and tells me I can ride with her to the park and ride. Now that is mighty generous. That is my shining star of the morning.
So getting back to myself;I’ve been cleaning my apartment, and making some changes. So that it will accommodate my new kiddo. Princess.
Who is now my responsibility since my mom passed away. I am getting her a new cat tree, and hopes she takes the move and new accommodations well. To be continued on that!
I also acquired new artwork
This painting comes from a co-worker who is very artistic. I hope she sells more of her work. It will hang over my fireplace once I get thing situated.
Winter is subsiding, soon Spring will be upon us. Today is turing out like a spring day, so lovely in the sun. I am enjoying it while it is here.
Here’s to getting back… All aboard!
This photo was the first time mom had gone to The Blanton Museum. It was a fun day after we got there, before it was a little nerve wracking, only because we took the bus, and we walked down to the museum, and I was figuring out which way to turn, but once I righted myself, we were on our way, and she loved it. I never did get a chance to take her to other museums around Austin, but she really did love this one. This is the stacked waters wall she is standing in front of. It was a very fun day indeed.
I have decided to post a photo of my mom every week, for 52 weeks, I think it will be a healing process for me of sorts. I have chosen today to do this, I shall see how it all goes, starting something new is always a challenge. I hope I can complete this. Here goes.
I loved this photo, she would love going to lake marble falls, just to feed the ducks, one in particular that we called diaper booty, lol, which was a big goose. I will truly miss those times.
