|The window over Stephanie's sink... pretty.|
I had not intended to be away from blogging for two full weeks but a lot of living has gone into them. I am exhausted and there is still more lawn and garden work to do. But the work is fulfilling (when done a little at a time) for it results in good stuff come Summer.
In the midst of the outdoor work, my Tookish side came out. You must understand, there is not much there to work with. But when my daughter and son-in-law offered to gift us with a trip to New England to see them, I could not turn it down. (Perhaps more ponderings about that on Sunday?)
The trip coincided with the May Brimfield flea market and antique show. For years we would talk about going again. We realized after I arrived that it had been ten years since we were there the last time. Faith soon turns ten and Stephanie was expecting her at the time.
"Brimfield" is an experience in itself. However, by going when we did, we were also there for Mother's Day and my oldest grandson's birthday celebration. Our five days seemed to fly by as if it were twenty-four hours.
I will share some photos over the next few days. Hopefully I can respond to e-mails today, too.
NOTE: Isn't the above window pretty? The photo doesn't do it justice. I love the way Stephanie decorates. Although she does have a BA degree in Interior Design... I think she has always had a talent for making things beautiful. All five days I would go around her house, telling her how I love it.
