Forced to face reality

I won't start with the hardest part of my day but with the part that tells you I'm quilting the backing to the ice cream quilt finally. Hope tomorrow brings me more time to get the last 2 rows attached to it.
But I didn't get to work as much as I wanted to today. I did the normal stuff laundry, put the dishes away, take the garbage can to the street and play with Buck including a lot of reading outside in the nice weather.....but then one of my brother's sent me a photo from the cemetery my parents are buried in. I knew they installed the markers but hadn't been able to make myself go look at them. Hit me like a ton of bricks. Brings tears every time I think about it. Can't really believe how hard it hit me to see those. I was there when we all took them to the cemetery so I knew all about it. but something snapped today. It feels awful.
1. His comment was we finally know where they are buried. I paid for them and had them placed. They're graves are next to a tree with a bench we always knew where they were.
2. Opened a new book and can't seem to put it down.
3. Do like the feeling of a quilt coming together.
I have 3 little packages to ship tomorrow and might to go town. There is a new recipe I want to try. It calls for chicken breast, mushrooms and cream of chicken soup. But I have thighs so they will have to do. If I get up early enough I could take buck along in the car it is supposed to get warm in the afternoon again. Maybe I'll get my book read.
