mom visit

My mom arrives today, staying until Thursday morning. We have a few things planned, like the ancient Peru exhibit at the ROM, but she's been having some trouble with an injured ankle, so we'll have to play that by ear.

She's excited to see our new place and meet the new member of our family. (All our dogs have known her a "Grandma".) Dim Sum in Mississauga and grilling in the backyard are definitely on the agenda. And endless talking, of course.

I can't wait to see her! Now off to clean.

Very cool. Why the Peru exhibit in particular? Looks like there's more than that at the ROM.

Why the Peru exhibit in particular?

Because we were in Peru last year, of course! We saw the ruins and artificats of a very similar culture, another pre-Incan, north coast, gold-laden empire called Sipan. This one is Sican - their neighbours.

I always feel connected to places I've visited, and Peru being so recent, and it being such an intense trip, I am very interested in all things Peruvian.

My mom swears she is up to it, although her ankle is swollen and painful. We shall see!

They have wheelchairs available for public use at the ROM... you may want to consider borrowing one while you roam.

Thanks, Scott. I think my mother would shoot me if I suggested that. Or at least be offended and refuse to hear of it.

dim sum: The total number of people affected by blackouts on any given day.

These are the things I think of at 2 AM.

Or as some people say, "2 AM in the morning."

Hey, maybe those people make up the dim sum.

Have a great visit! It's Mom time - I'm just back from 4 days visiting mine.

Watch that ankle - museum floors always seem twice as hard as anyone else's...

I hope your mom is well, too!

The museum was out of the question. She's really hobbling. However, I wish she had copped to that during any one of the 100 times I asked her before I ordered tickets - rather than finally saying so as we were leaving the house to go to the ROM!

The good people in the ROM development office were nice enough to let me apply the tickets to another date next month, even though they are supposedly non-changeable and non-refundable.
