My sister, Jenny, and I went visiting this weekend. Our destination: Traverse City, Michigan. Our parents live there on the edge of beautiful Traverse Bay, with their friend, Scooter.
Scooter’s favorite thing, aside from food, is going for a spin on mom’s walker. What a funny creature she is!
Because our parents have found it necessary, until recently, to keep every single thing they ever came into contact with (do you know anyone like that?), their garage and basement yield some fabulous finds… At least, fabulous to those of us who covet things that are worn, aged, and loved – which, now that I think of it, sounds rather like a description of our mom and dad.
I was simply thrilled with my finds!
Jenny came away with two dolls, Violet who is a centenarian, and Mystery (I just made that up) who has no past, because my mom can’t remember anything about her. So, Jenny can decide what kind of life Mystery has had – perhaps Mystery was a rug hooker in her youth!
The sweater – oh! the sweater! Made by my mom, several years ago, it is the softest, wooliest, warmest thing… absolutely perfect for cuddling in on those cool evenings by the campfire when s’mores are in the offing…
Whether you visited or stayed home – I hope your weekend was simply glorious!
