Let’s see if there is a clear day with a shadow or an early Spring for 2017.

Maura, Jack and Michael in the late afternoon.
Took this the Saturday after Thanksgiving when the grandkids and I visited Aunt Mary in NYC. It was a wonderful piece of playground equipment, made in Germany.
It was about 14 degrees but my app said it felt like 2 degrees and yet the sun was out and the sky blue.
I’d just arrived from Pittsburgh. The roads were clear so I made it in about 3 1/2 hours to Clintonville Ohio for lunch with Charlie and Laura.
They’d just pulled into the driveway and we were going inside to warm up. He loves the snow.
Just noticing the difference in the light in full sun and then on the back porch deck in the shade.
Yesterday three of my grandchildren, Michael, Jack and Maura met their new baby cousin Joseph.
Their mothers are first cousins as their mothers are sisters so their offspring share a great grandparent!
Michael, Maura and Jack are first cousins once removed to baby Joseph’s mother but are second cousins to her son Joseph.
It can be confusing -even looking at the chart
To my Dear S.I.L. James

Your mittens (to accompany the handknit hat) are almost complete. Promise.
Love, your M.I.L.

After dinner out, Steve and I drove the three grandkids to Morningside neighborhood to check out the Christmas decorations.
Saturday morning I photographed the pancakes and put the iPhone on the table. Maura said, “what’s that camera noise?” Henry nuzzled the open camera app and captured the red tablecloth. Maybe a smudge of butter on it that drew him to the circle at the bottom of the screen.
Shades of Rothko? Definitely abstract.
And here he is taking up most of the bed while I’m visiting for the weekend.
Had to consider do I post a photo “peopled or unpeopled”?
Aunt Mary, Michael, Maura and Jack look across the Hudson River to New Jersey. Documenting the Thanksgiving vacation, saving memories of a childhood experience for reference.
