Enjoying the little moments

It's a weird situation at the moment. I've been visit my aunt practically every day and she seems so well, and yet I know she is not. She's in good spirits most of the time, and there is a constant stream of visitors at her house. What's more, with my uncle here from the LA who loves to feed everyone, well he's been cooking up a storm in the kitchen with multiple pots on the stove at any given time. It's been a heart warming experience.

I taught my uncle how to use Facetime on his iPad, and now he thinks it's the best thing since sliced bread. My aunt gets to see and talk to all the relatives over in LA who couldn't make it back. My uncle's wife also took her on a tour of their house and garden.

Kien takes a while to warm up every time we visit. It's just the way it is, and if we force the issue then he lets himself be known he wants to go home. Overall though I think he's pretty good.

It's good when he has the younger generation around to interact with him; my sister, my aunt's son, my aunt's husband's niece and nephews.


It's that time of year, and outside our place Autumn is especially beautiful because the ground is carpeted with leaves. Late Saturday afternoon we arrived home after visiting my aunt and Kien just had to burn off some energy. The light was disappearing fast, but I was able to snap a few pics of him frolicking on the lawn.
