I'm leaving tomorrow to spend a week with my mother. She's 92, and still lives alone, although she shouldn't, so I try to visit often. My sister in the same town goes by at least once a day, but having someone else gives her a break, and helps get some big chores done. Mom needs some outings also, since she feels rather isolated sometimes. She used to make many quilts, most of which she still has (that's a story in itself). On this trip I think I'll try to photograph some of them, just to have a record, and they might be interesting to post.

Whenever we go to visit my 80 something mother-in-law in Pittsburgh, PA (my husband and I live in Australia), she always has a list of stuff for us to do. Simple things like turn the mattress, replace the batteries in the clock radio and retune the stations. She always marvels at how quickly we get these little chores done and it feels good to help.

Have a wonderful time with her...it is precious!

I love to see old quilts made by our Moms and Grandmoms. It's wonderful that she can still live by herself, even if she shouldn't, but it is probably a strain on you at times.
