Last Thursday, I was sitting with my grandma and told her about the road trip that my mom would be leaving on the next day. The trip would take her to Seattle to see my sister and back to Peace River within a five-day period.
'Round about the third time explaining that in a ten-minute time frame (Grandma's memory is mostly gone), it occurred to me that, with very little rearranging of my schedule, I could go, too. Oh, happy day! I haven't been to my sister's since 2015.
A few phone calls and about half an hour later, it was arranged.
The trip went via Abbottsford, BC so that my mom and uncles and aunties could attend their aunty's funeral. (I never knew this particular great-aunt and was only acquainted with one family member, so I skipped the actual funeral in favour of more time with my sister, Katrin.)
It was a lot of driving, but so worth it. Here are a few of the gazillion photos I took on the trip.
(P.S. I also made progress on a new knitting design. That was a nice change. :-D)
