In the Pink

The Mama flanked by the Cousins!

Indeed, yes. The Mama, the Husband, and I are in good spirits today. I think Molly the Cat may be, too. She got to eat roast chicken for lunch.

The Mama is so in the pink that she did not complain about going to the doctor's this afternoon to get her shot for her anemia. Yaay!

We had an impromptu visit from the Cousins on the Mama's side of the family. We don't see them often, but when we do, it's loads of happy conversation and laughter over a meal. That, I think, was the best medicine for the Mama today.




It's the letter I on ABC Wednesday, a fun weekly meme started by Denise Nesbitt several years ago, and continued onward by Roger Green and the ABCW team. Check out the other participants, and maybe join in yourself, by clicking here.

I'm also sharing at Warm Heart Wednesday, a meme hosted by Jenny Matlock at Off on my Tangent. Click here to visit.

    1. Hey, Di! I'm been slow with responses and visits this week. Hope to complete my rounds today. We ate roasted chicken, how'd you know? I cheated and bought it ready-cooked from the market, but I did make roasted cauliflower, sauteed mustard greens, and fried rice with peas. Also served Chinese dumplings, which I got out of the freezer section of the tore.

      Those are the Cousins with the Mama. Two days later, the Mama is still floating on clouds from the visit. The cousins are our only relatives on the Mama's side left in the U.S.

    1. The Mama tends to get anxious when people visit, so I don't tell her until the day before. I was surprised that she wasn't anxious this time. She could hardly wait. :-)

  7. Nice picture, Susie. You mother is probably the age I was thinking before I saw her picture. I am glad she is with you and you can help her. That is a warming thing to be doing, I think my kids might do also if really needed.
    It's nice to have relatives visit also. We visited some last week, a few that we can drive to. I might show pictures, they read my blogs and on Facebook we are friends.

    1. Thanks, Jim. That's the Mama with the cousins. The Husband and I moved from San Francisco area almost 13 years ago to live with the Mama when her health was first waning, which she bounced back quite well. I'm grateful to the Husband for willing to make such a move. He loves his "new" home. It's pretty much the "I want to go far, far away" that he used to yearn for when we lived in the Bay Area.

  8. I think it is so cool how vivacious your mom is. The other day I encountered a woman who still volunteers around her community, and she is 94. People who continue to do what they love into their 90s inspire me.

    1. Me, too, Julia. Now that I'm doing more in her gardens, I'm amazed each day how much hard work and love she dedicated to them.

    1. Man-cousin is the Mama's last connection with the Philippines. Meaning she and he knew each other way back in 1940s when Man-cousin was still a tot.
