First snow

Clean
Silent
Beautiful
First snow of the year
Came on the footsteps of my return from mom's
Take time
Soak it in
Wash it through and
Move forward into Spring.

The clean out

People who clean out other's houses with care deserve a special place in heaven.
This weekend is my last push to gather the things that are important for family history and place them in storage.
Carefully, weeding through the newpaper clippings of the Apollo moonlaunches I found this picture of my dad. His mother passed away when he was 18 months and pictures of his childhood are rare. This one is 2x2 inches! Those boys were all "mother orphans" and remained friends until Dad passed away.
Documentation is so much easier these days. Load up Picasa and everyone can see what you find.
My eyes are bloodshot from the dust. My nose hurts and my fingures have loads of papercuts.
Off to my last three days in my Mother's large house.
An era is passing.
Time to clean it up for the next generation!
