On a Saturday morning where I was scheduled to drive out to Leduc to visit my mom, I took some time out to visit the cemetery to clean it up and put some decorations up.
Keeping in mind that it was -33, I hope you'll understand that it was a quick trip.
Katie's grave was pretty full of snow.
Fortunately, I'd planned ahead and brought my car scraper.
Some quick work dusting and sweeping, and recovering all the little people from the snow, and the work was done.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get our barbecue lighter to light but it's definitely more festive.
With my new job, mom in the hospital and everything seeming to come together just a little too quickly, I've definitely been feeling stress. It was good to get away from that and gain a little perspective. Even if it was just a short time.
