Farewell

The bubble burst and my sister could not come to visit.  That's my big news from the past few weeks.  We were both a bit sad about that but it will happen, just a bit later than had been planned.  I feel for my son in Brasil and brother in England.  Who knows when they will be able to come for a visit.  My son has a beautiful little girl, 14 months old who he badly wants to introduce to the family.  And we so badly want to meet her, too.

Today Georgia leaves home headed for student life in Dunedin.  She still has that passion for food that she had as a little one when she baked something every time she visited me, which for years was daily.  She's taking that passion into hospitality management.

We had a lovely family dinner on Sunday night to wish her safe travels and happy days.

Georgia holding my great granddaughter,  Lexis with her sisters Krystal and Shayde.

Now it's little Lexis who likes to use that same whisk (just now realized it is the same one Georgia used) when she makes pancakes when she visits.  Georgia's art work is still on the fridge.  Lexis starts school soon, so I might have to make room for her artistic creations before long.

Time marches on.

  1. Time marches on as you say, but it's odd that every so often it rears up and smacks you right in the eye. Sometimes a glance in the mirror will do it!

    1. I've found it pays to not be daydreaming when passing mirrors, the reality check can be quite shocking.

  2. What a joy, as the time marches, to continue the traditions into the next generations.

    1. Hi Amy, It was always a gamble, one we didn't win this time. Maybe we'll do better next time. :)

  4. History repeating itself, using the same whisk!
    I too look forward to travel restrictions easing so I can see my daughter again. Let's hope it won't be too long away when we can meet up with our loved ones again.
