Back in the Broken Saddle Again...

I can't express my gratitude enough for all the support on this blog in helping me travel through my grief.  I could not respond to all the comments individually but know that I read each and every one and held them in my heart.  Both of my parents left this world in the blink of an eye.  Most of us hope for this kind of passage but for those left behind it was a nano second...and our hearts are still trying to take a breath of air.  Although I said I would start talking quilting again...I had to share a couple more photos and the slide show of the wonderful day I spent at Crater Lake while mom was sailing her last race...and there is a snip of reference to quilting in the slide show...just to ease myself back.  I am finding it much easier to communicate on the computer than face to face...which always brings the tears.

Look at what my son Connor found!  Peyton (my cousin's daughter) loves her Connor!
see the BunnyHill Quilt she is wrapped in!

My sister and I visited the boat which friends had placed some flowers/balloon.
I spent part of my younger years sailing and sleeping on this boat...and in fact when I was 7 months pregnant with Peter, my oldest son HH and my mom sailed to San Francisco and docked it on the Sausilito side of the bay.  HH and I stayed on the boat for a week and, because we were inside bay waters I had to pee in a coffee can and haul it up to the bathroom rather than use the bathroom on the boat!  Try that at 7 months pregnant!!!

Flowers spread on my parents grave site.  They are buried in a historic cemetery with the ocean in sight, sea breeze and fog rolling in.
