One Word Sunday: Reflection

The theme for Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’ this week, is ‘Reflection’.

Here’s a double version of Mervin Muscovy in a tearing hurry, scooting along the lake outside my bathroom window.

This cute Blue-winged Teal looks as though he ate at least double the amount of lunch that he should have.

Thank you all for the wonderful response to my last week’s ‘One Word Sunday – Old’. I relayed your good wishes to Kathleen, my Mom-in-law and although she has no idea how social media works, she expressed her delight and gratitude. She said, “I don’t know why I’m still here at 108, but I’m not complaining.”

One Word Sunday: Old

Debbie’s theme for ‘One Word Sunday’ is ‘Old’. I’m a bit late to the party because I’ve been waiting for my Mom-in-law’s care home in England to upload photos taken of her on her 108th birthday. Here she is looking surprised and delighted with the flowers from us.

In spite of her great age, Kathleen is still active and takes part in all the goings on at the home, including the chair aerobics and the singing. Whenever we phone her, she is never in her room and the staff have to go looking for her to get her to the phone. Unfortunately because of COVID, no family members were allowed to attend her party, but a beautiful cake was made for the residents and staff to enjoy whilst the harpist she had requested, provided entertainment.

We had a phone call with her after the party and she was in high spirits, having enjoyed the occasion, especially the cake.

We are hoping that we’ll all be able to attend her 109th birthday next August if this pesky virus goes away at last.

I enjoyed my birthday with our family up in New Jersey and was thoroughly spoiled, wined and dined. Although I’m also old, I do still have way to go before I catch up to Kathleen, who is now the 62nd oldest person in the whole of the UK.
