it has been raining since yesterday morning…

feels a bit like tears, of which I have been shedding many this weekend…

this morning I was checking Facebook and realized it was Father’s Day… rather funny because we had spent time planning a special dinner for Jeff…

I think I’ve been focused on getting through yesterday and was a bit taken aback this morning…

on our way to breakfast we watched some of the marathoners as they ran along Portage Avenue, in the pouring rain… for many years I have spent Father’s Day morning sitting/standing and cheering on the runners… for a number of years when the girls were in elementary school George would drive them to the U of Manitoba where they took part in one of the fun runs… talk about a dedicated dad, lol…

George was a great dad and grandpa and Father’s Day is just another reminder that he is gone…

this afternoon the eight of us went to the movies and came back for ribs for our supper… we’ve had lots of family time over the weekend which is wonderful…

after we ate, the Winnipeg family went home and the Ottawa family packed their bags and jumped on a plane…

house is feeling just a bit quiet and empty tonight…
