Father's Day has come and gone with Waldemar on the other side of the ocean from us all. We call a few times, celebrate by going for Persian food (without him, sadly), and miss him.
|My wonderful dad|
The two older boys and their families and I eat lunch at a Persian café and line up for photos after - just to send a hi to W from the tribe.
Then I head to Canada to spend the rest of the day with my father and mom. Wonderful!
We walk down the dike beside the river. The flowers and trees are stunning.
|Flowers and more flowers|
|Grapes on the arbor|
My brother and his wife come over for a visit late in the evening - lovely to see them and horse around.
|Clouds on Cheam: a reminder of|
the view, walking to high school years ago
Dad makes his awful and awfully healthy smoothies. I breathe deeply and gulp it down in one go.
|Ghastly smoothies - but healthy|
|A beautiful pathway at 7am|
|A living room filled with family treasures and memories|
|Mom prepares a meal|
Dad's violin shop is full of curiosities, as always.

|A very nice mother-in-law and|
|a good woman indeed|
When I get home, Jaron is hanging out out upstairs and I get to say hi. He was a piano student and he and Timo have been friends for years. The kids have a full burst of energy, so it's a short visit.
Just after I get down, Laura texts: Josie's in town. I head out the door for a cup of tea and talk at Laura and Paul's. So grateful for friendships.
