Happy Mother's Day 2009

This is my wish to all mothers and especially those whose children cannot be with them on this day...Happy Mother's Day and may your memories bring you joy and comfort! This is the handbag I knitted for my mother in Germany and when I called her this morning to wish her a Happy Mothers day, she said she received the bag and she really likes it. No matter how old my daughter gets, she'll always be my little girl to me. This is one of my favorite photos of us. It was taken back in 1997 at Mimi's Restaurant in California. I find great comfort in my little fur balls, to whom I'm a mom too. My dog, Gizzy and my cat, Middi. It's nice to be needed, even if only by a fur-baby ;-) My Middi is a very good and smart cat. She has to put up with a lot of nonsense from Gizzy and so far, she's been very tolerant of him. (Guess it's still better than starving outside) I took Gizzy to Bank's Lake in the afternoon to spent a few hours with my friend who runs the Outpost. We shared some ice cold watermelon and watched a fisherman catch and release a nice sized (pregnant) bass. I also bought Gizzy a new plush hand puppet at the Outpost, where they sell only animals that one would find at this National Wildlife Refuge. As you can see, he loves his new alligator! Earlier today, I received a surprise invitation to join my long-time friends in Valdosta for dinner. We all went to a nice little seafood restaurant (no, not the Red Lobster) that served us an assortment of tasty seafood and I enjoyed some fried green tomatoes. But best of all was the company. It was so nice seeing them again! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

I just love the purse! Hey, thanks for spreading the word about the Butterfly Project. My mom was sent on something called the "Kindertransport" which was a Dutch project to rescue Jewish children. Her family escaped to Italy, but she was too young for the journey, so they sent her on the train to England. She was in England for 3 years, then joined her family in Quito, Ecuador. They were mighty lucky to have escaped. My mother has written a book about her experiences, starting with her childhood in Austria, and ending when she got onto the Merchant Marine ship in England to go to Ecuador.

So this project is close to my heart. I think it would be marvelous if some of your friends worked on crochet butterflies. Please let me know!

Meine Mutter is von Wien! Ich war im Wien im 1997. Wie schoen!

Doris Sturm said...

Ja, Candice, das weiss ich. Ich habe es an Deinem Blog gelesen. Ich liebe Johann Strauss seine Musik und den Wiener Walzer ;-) und auch das Wiener Schnitzel. Dort gibt es gutes Essen. Meine Oma hat in einer Wiener Kueche das kochen gelernt und war eine gute Koechin...das war mein Papa seine Mutti, meine Oma, die mich aufgezonge hat, und welche ich noch heute vermisse.
