The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…

20 Dec

I went to my mothers today.  She’s surviving since dad died, she has her moments, but she reminds herself that dad would have hated being here in the state he was in.  Then she’s ok.

And cable helps.  She has more channels than she needs, which isn’t much, because all she really needs is Coronation Street.  She said to me during my visit, “There’s so much to watch, and I’ve pretty much watched  everything.”

Yep, that pretty much sums up cable.

But she has been keeping busy.  I noticed she made dozens of these lovely little snowmen out of stair spindles that dad kept from a demo.

See, I come by it honestly.  We both take old useless things and make new useless things that are slightly more adorable.
