I had just accidentally deleted a post that I have been working on since Sunday. Now I can’t remember what I wrote about. I did write about the dark, windy and rainy day here and Norbert taking residence in front of the fire.
I wrote that I just stood up and broke my SAD light. Damn! I need that light. My depression is worse from October through February and light therapy helps a little. Anyway, I went to Amazon and ordered a new one.
Yesterday I went to see my aunt. My favourite aunt. Besides my daughter, she is the woman I love most in this world. Sadly, she is not well at all and is going through all sorts of testing. It doesn’t look good. When I was there she lent me her photo albums that had these!
The girl in the middle is my grandmother. She was about 15 here.
Here she is on her wedding day in 1944 with her mother. She was 16. The man is her husband, my grandfather. He left her when my grandma was 19 and had 3 children and was never heard from again. Yes. She was pregnant in this picture. I see why she fell in love with her husband! All that dark curly hair. And the sailor uniform. She told me it was the sailor’s uniform. It did come out eventually that he was gay, which explains why he would have left.
Here she is with my dad when he was 3 months old. She was 17. Oh, how she loved her children. And grandchildren. And her great grandchildren!
There are lots and lots of other pictures but I will spare you. 🙂
Tonight is a good night to make rotisserie chicken.
