Home » Thursday Lingering Look at Windows » THURSDAY LINGERING LOOK AT WINDOWS – WEEK 6


My mom, as you might know if you’re following me, is 90 years old. She is blessed enough to be able to take care of herself but at least 4 or 5 days a week I will sit with her and play a game or two of cards. She loves 500 Rum and, no, I don’t let her win. Sometimes you bite the bear, and sometimes the bear bites you. Luck of the draw and all that.
This is the view I take in as I deal, and yes I always deal. Twisting medicine bottle caps and dealing are not her forte, but she still darns my socks and hems my jeans. πŸ™‚ There are times she has to remind me that it’s my turn. The view is simple, but the cloud formations and the position of the sun are constantly changing and this tends to mesmerize me. Enjoy the view. It won’t last long.

Stop over at Dawn’s for a lingering look of her wonderful windows and other entries as well.
Thanks for visiting. I appreciate that you dropped by. πŸ˜‰



  1. That’s a very compelling view. Great to daydream, but DON’T!! Next thing you know, Lilly will start beating you at every game. You’ll be off in deep thought, and she’ll have cards up her sleeve, be smoking cigars, and whatnot!

  2. Gemma that’s a great perspective all round .. the view you have outside and the view you take on making some fun with your Mum !

  3. That’s a blessing to have this long long relationship with your mother. I hope my sons will visit me four times a week when I’m 90.

  5. Lovely view but as Genevive commented don’t get too absorbed in the view, I had a Mother lived into her 90’s and was sharp as a tack and lived in her own home to the end and when we played cards, scrabble etc she would always take any opportunity to get one step ahead… πŸ™‚ Enjoy your special time with your Mother.

  6. A beautiful view indeed. I think you should position your mom so that she too gets carried away by the view!! Then you can both dream for a bit πŸ™‚
    Lovely post.
