Of course, I wanted to show easter photos but I won't ... Not that I don't want but I downloaded the pictures yesterday on my dad's computer and his computer erased all my pictures from my memory card ... So no pictures to share ...
We spent the day at my mom's house and we paid a visit to my 86 years old grandma. In the morning, we went to buy a bouquet of flowers for my mom and an orchids for my grandma who collects them. See, I'm not very close to my grandma who always prefered her grand sons (I'm the only grand daughter ) When I came back from the US, we used to visit her a little bit. She used to reproach me a lot of things that happened between my mom ( DIL) and her. She even remembered things I told her when I was a teenager. Keep in mind at that time, Pierre was having his chimio treatment so honestly, those stories from the past seemed to me ... old
I think she understood and stopped telling me about the past but I don't feel like going to visit her often (Chuy who witnessed the whole thing understands me) Yesterday, she called in the morning asking us to come over. So we decided to go in the afternoon and bring Esteban's cake so he could blow his candles at his great grandma's house
So we arrived there and brought our white orchid. She said thanks but soon, mentioned she ALREADY had a white orchid. We did try to tell her it was not exactly the same but she didn't buy it Then she asked : "who is going to go and exchange it ? " I couldn't believe it ... Usually people say thank you even though they don't really like it, right? So at 3.30 , we headed back to the flower shop to exchange the orchid ... We tried to be careful not to take a color she had already. And trust me, in a flower shops, they kind of all look the same shade after a while ... We finally found a dark color. We asked the guy if it was not uncommon for people to exchange flowers . He said that he was the first time he was happeneing to him ... Oops ...
Today is a holiday here; it's called the easter's monday. Chuy is not working and he's not working tomorrow either. Emma is sick: she has temperature and is cold ... She won't go to school tomorrow.
Here is my latest progress:
Click to enlarge and see all the white I stitched I'm not done yet: I still have some backstitches to do. And what to stitch next? I don't know yet but I see the future kind of green.
