A bunch of stuffy Cardinals jiving to teen church music. You don't have to be Catholic to enjoy this one:

The last thing that made me smile was my lovely mum when we talked today, she always makes me smile

I am so fortunate to have such a loving, caring and wonderful mum, who I love so much

Your relationship with your Mom makes me smile, Kylie!

I am also smiling at Violet. I haven't been feeling well all day and it was probably the heat. So, at 10:30 pm I am cool and hungry so warmed up some Chinese food. Violet knows I have noodles - her favourite food. She is behind me on her bed in my studio, but I know she is watching every bite I take in case I drop some. Sure enough, I dropped two little chow mien noodles and she was at the ready to clean the floor! I could be eating something else and she would peacefully sleep, but she knows when it is something she loves and knows she can't beg, but plays it smart!

I sometimes drop one just to see if she is alert....she always is!

When I was growing up my Great Aunt lived with us (as did my Aunt - I was the only kid in a house with 4 adults ) and she would have things "fall" off her plate so our dog Buttons could get them. The two of them were definitely in kahoots!

What made me smile really big tonight was using dishes that had been my Mom's. I have quite of few of her kitchen items (love her pasty cutter, far better than modern ones to use for making crusts) as well as a number of things from my Mother in Law. Every time I use one of those items it takes me back and reminds me of their love. *sigh*

I just got the most beautiful book in the mail, a compilation of pictures taken by my cousin from when we had a recent family reunion/memorial for Mom in Canada. Though it was a rough trip in more ways than one, she managed to capture all the best moments. What a beautiful book!

Dawg, I am so happy you got that book of memories. I find it so refreshing that a camera can find so much good in a situation that may be sad. I was going through my parent's albums, which I have now, to find pictures for my nephews. While it was sad to see my parents and know they aren't here, the memories brought them back to me in a sense.

CG, I have some of my mother's kitchen stuff as well and I know what you mean. But the thing that really does it for me is when I use my Mother's and my paternal Grandmother's recipes. Many are on stained 3x5 cards, while others are in my head just as they had them in theirs. I made my Mom's yorkshire pudding for a church function in June and while I couldn't eat it (made some gluten free ones), I could feel her approval as they baked up!

Yes you are! I am smiling just thinking of the two of you together.

I wish my mom was still here. At least I am now at the point that I can smile at the wonderful memories of her. She was the best mom ever. Now I have another smile!
