And he told me that he might have the largest yellow bowl that belonged to his mother( my grandma) in the apt downstairs. My Dad owns a 2 apt house and he rents the downstairs one to friends from abroad that come to work in Montreal.
The downstairs apt used to be my grandma’s before she had to go to an assisted facility. So I take the train and go see my dad…and we go to the first floor and I’m all aflutter (you know the possibility of Pyrex, free and with provenance!). And we open all the cupboards and the drawers and NO yellow bowl; my dad is sure he’s seen it….But then we find this….
And I’m so emotional. I’m getting an actual dish my gran cooked in. Dad says she made tuna casserole in it and the small one held salt.
And I go home with my heart full of Gran-Mimi. And everytime I open my cupboard I smile and think of her…
So this week I’m feeling a bit blue (like delphite) and I needed to invoke the Spring Gods
to bring in the nice weather. It has been slushing (rain and snow) for 4 days straight!
So I made this….
I don't know if the sun will shine but it sure cheered me up!
