My mom was in town this May. My sister had a baby miss Lily Jane, who is beautiful and perfect in every way.
My mom lives really far away. 3000km away in fact. Having her stay at my house on the weekends brought a familiar rhythm to my apartment. We cooked meals together and went for walks. She loves walking in Winnipeg- the flat ground is good for her knees.
We are both allergic to lilacs, but canker worm season had just passed. In the summer heat, I’m thinking about milder weather and my mom.
