Thank you very much Roseheather and Graciela!!!!
So sorry to hear about your mother schutkleur, I know how it feels. You are right, Jigidi is a good distraction. I was at the hospital with my husband from Dec. 31st until March 6th and I was trying to login into Jigidi every night just to keep my mind off so many problems. I am glad you are back with your beautiful pictures, thanks! big hugs!
Sometime, later, Schutkleur, I will share some info about my grandma and my mother. Some similar experiences in my family also. Yes, Jigidi helps as a distraction. Good that your brother could also be there when you needed rest. My grandma sounds most like your mother. Interesting, that we would both have these strong women in our lives. hugs to you at this time -- RH
Thanks Roseheather, Impie and Graciela.I`ll try to explain in as few words as I can. On March 14 my mother collapsed in my arms (apparently her heart rate was much to slow). I managed to reanimate her with the help of 112 ( 911 in the States??), a few minutes later the paramedics came and took her to the hospital. A week later she almost seemed her normal self and the doctor thought she could soon be released (to the Care Hotel connected to the hospital, at first, and maybe home after a few weeks). But my mother decided otherwise, over night she refused to eat, drink or talk. Normaly when that happens a patient will live on for some 4 or 5 days. But apparently my mother was a lot stronger than she looked and stayed with us for almost a fortnight. For more than three weeks I practically lived in the hospital. The last 2 weeks I was at her bedside from 3 in the afternoon till 7 the next morning. Then my brother took over while I tried to get some sleep at home. Some days were better than others, on average I slept some 3-4 hours a day. After she died I was hoping to make up for lost sleep, but although I can sleep at night again I still only sleep some 5-6 hours a day.I`ll try to be here most days from now on again. Jigidi is a good distraction and it does make me go on walks to shoot new photo`s.
I am glad you are ok now! please take your time and rest.
Zal ook een klein berichtje achterlaten bij je puzzel. Ik kan nergens terugvinden wat er precies aan de hand is dat je zo lang niet meer hier bent geweest. Ik kijk iedere dag even en zag steeds dat je sinds 15 maart niet meer hebt geplaatst, gepuzzeld of comments hebt gegeven. Ik hoop je gauw weer te "zien" en ook te horen wat er in die tijd heeft gespeeld. Ik wens je in elk geval het allerbeste en tot ziens.
Take care, rest and recuperate. I'll be here when you can come back. ; )
Thanks very much Roseheather and Graciela. I am (will be) reasonably alright. First I need a couple of days sleep and then I`ll be back.
Thinking of you and hope the weather has warmed a bit where you are. I have missed your puzzles and you! ; )
You first began with Jigidi a year ago, 4/3/12. Hope to see you back soon. ; )
Me too, I've been praying for you and your mother!!
Thinking of you, Schutkleur, this beautiful morning. I hope you have some good weather to bring some joy to your day.
I am concerned. Hoping that you are well, and I am wondering about your mother. Take care, dear friend.
Just want you to know that I have missed you.
Thinking of you, hope all is well.
Ben ik helemaal met je eens A3ana:))
Pracht dieren zijn het
Thank you very much Roseheather :))
Thank you Frank. What does the title mean?? This takes some explaning. When you as an adult squat on your haunches and spread your arms you might say to a little child: "kom maar in m`n huisje ". In a way you`re asking the child for a hug. Your wife might know what I mean.This pose of the swan gave me that same feeling : an invitation to little swans to come for a ride."Veren" means "from feathers" . I hope this makes it clear????
What a beautiful view of this swan with its feathers ruffled. ; )
By the way Scutkleur I don't know what the title says - as they say in the UK 'It's all Dutch to me.'
Love the highlights. Great puzzle.
