Just a Friday

I don't know if you remember, but a few posts ago I mentioned that the St. Elizabeth's Hospice in Ipswich (my hometown, England) was holding a Daisy Day in memorial of those who have died. I was hoping to purchase a daisy as it was being held on Mum's birthday (Sunday 4th) in the park local to where she grew up. My sister was going to the service being held. I was having trouble purchasing a daisy. I heard back from the charity and was able to give a general donation and the lady I emailed with said they would do a daisy in Mum's name. Not sure that will happen, but just giving the donation and them acknowledging it gives me comfort. Sister says she will be at the service for both me and her. Tomorrow, she says she is going to Mum's bench. 

This is a funny photo I took, but even though it isn't of humans, it reminded me of Mum. I grew up in a time when there weren't wet wipes or anything like that. When we got something on our faces or needed cleaning up, Mum would spit on a tissue and wipe our faces. This happen to anyone else? Lol. The look on the fawn's face just reminded me of that. 

Today I did go into the craft room for a bit. It was hot and humid and I didn't last up there long. Tomorrow is supposed to be more of the same but on Sunday it will cool down. 

Things That Make Me Smile Day 245

Hot and sweaty on my walk this morning. Wasn't that comfortable, but I did smile as I was fortunate to see two Great Horned Owls hunting near the lake as I walked down the path just after dawn and saw a beaver swimming in the lake. 


  1. I'm glad you were able to make a donation and the lady from the charity emailed you to say that they will do a daisy in your Mum's name! I'm glad, too, that your sister will attend the event.

    I just loved that photo of the doe washing her fawn's face! Yes, I remember my mother wetting the edge of a handkerchief to clean some dirt off me. :)

  2. I've had many a face rub like that.

  3. The mama deer licking baby deer (and its look) photo is great! My British mother was big into the spit/tissue method of cleaning my face when I was small and we were out and, much to my children's disgust (now all in their 40s), it was also my preferred method when they were little. Lol. The yuck noises from them were very loud. :)

  4. That pic of the deer really did remind me - spit on a hanky! And grandmother used to take a damp flannel in a plastic bag for our hands.

  5. I remember you mentioning Daisy Day and I'm glad it's all worked out and that it has helped you as well.
