Here's a Low-cal Sweet Treat
I'm not up to much today, but thought I'd let my 'Village' friends know that I'm alive and kicking (not high kicks so much as kick the can type ).
I've been away from home and staying over at my Heartfamily's home while dad was away in Vancouver on business- to do with the Olympics coming next year. Things are still a little sketchy for mom, but the children are okay. I'll be back to their home during the day again next week. This may go on for another couple of weeks, until mom gets more confidence in herself and her abilities to be the mom she wants to be.
My mom is still in hospital in Toronto, awaiting a place in a full care facility. I haven't been able to visit her this last week due to the above commitment. I'm planning to visit her this coming weekend. Sadly, she will be having her 93rd birthday in hospital. Not ideal, but she is getting the care she needs and we could not provide while she was at home. My sister, brother and I will make the birthday celebration the we can for her. I bought one of those musical birthday cards that can also hold a personal message, so that could give her a smile, I hope. As for a cake, I will get some really pretty cupcakes at the bakery which would be easier to take into the hospital and to distribute to the Birthday Merry Makers. Sis has a birthday two days before Mom, so we'll sing Happy Birthday to her too.
So, that's all the news that's fit to print from up here in The Great White North. Hope everyone has a great week. Muuuwaaaaah! (that's a great big Dinah Shore goodbye kiss!)
