At least I think it’s Saturday! Oh yeah, it is, it’s 5:15 AM here. I woke up at 4:30 AM and had to laugh at what I was thinking about.
My Mother wanted to be cremated. Which she was. And being the nontraditional type gals that we were, she did not want one of the traditional cremation urns that you purchase from the funeral home.
Heather and I made a trip to Hobby Lobby (yep you heard me right) Thursday to pick out something appropriate. Hey, no kidding, the next time you’re there, take a look at some of the urns and just think about it…….you see!
So anywho, I suddenly woke up at 4:30 and thought to myself……..oh my gosh!! I forgot to take the Hobby Lobby price tag off of the bottom before my brother took it to the funeral home! Now that’ll make you laugh. I just sat in bed and had a good chuckle! Oh well, I think they’ve probably seen it all over time!
So….I’m talking to all of you and having a nice cup of coffee, or two…..
Yesterday was a better day! We found tons and I mean a HUGE stack of old vintage family photos from way way back. One of my passions as you may (or may not) know, so I was thrilled. Some great memorabilia from way on back when my Grandpa (mother’s Daddy) was in the military! Can’t wait to show you photos later! There were also some silly funny letters that he had written to his sisters during that period. Then we all just sat around, ate lemon cake (yum) kindly baked by a friend and just kind of chatted. Very healing!
Again, thank all of you for your kind words and prayers. You are truly my long distance friends!
Sorry……no pics. today. I promise I’ll catch up though!
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
