My mother LOVED picture taking, along with many other activities, sewing, knitting, cooking, baking, entertaining, smoking, and sharing gossip with her sister-in-laws.She had a wonderful relationship with her sister-in-laws based on their admiration of her many talents, gossip, and smoking.When I watched the movie, and later read the novel "The Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisters", I felt a shiver of identification as the main character and her friends reminded me strongly of my mom, as well as the era in which I grew up.
I'm quite sure Mom would have enjoyed blogging, with all that involves - the opportunity to share sewing/knitting secrets, and patterns; the opportunity to make friends; and the chance to post her many pictures.
I was reminded of some pictures of me in various hats, after reading Geraldine's weekly post over at Take a Happy Break. and felt moved to post a few in solidarity with Mr. Cheddar.So, dear Ched, thanks to my mom's love of picture taking here's a few less than flattering pictures of me - just so you don't feel alone. :)
Snow, again - a common theme...and me with Jeff. I identified myself, strongly as Nona, the older sister. Here it is possible to see the whole outfit, sewed by Mom, including the leggings. I'm thinking this was in a nice rust coloured wool, possibly herringbone patterned.
We had countless hours of fun skating outside, and all our neighbours were always welcome!
