I had to say goodbye to daughter and family already but it sure was a huge blessing for them to squeeze in a visit to us before the surgery, etc, that is going to be their focus for the months ahead! I have some beautiful reminders of the visit--I don't know how she squeezed these things into the van but they did! this is a ceramic garden decoration-about 18" tall.
A Thunbergia plant with trellis-
she knows how much I love orange flowers!
Two large branches from their Oak tree that was removed will be a good wood to try-we have Live Oak so it will be different-or maybe not; I will get to try it out on the lathe soon!
A friend of theirs had to have this Japanese Red Maple removed and so I have a 36" piece of that to play with also!
And Marsel has a new sewing room so she has cleaned out fabrics (plus a ton had recently been donated to her and I have some of that!) and brought me a box of goodies to sort through! It will help with the lonely feelings
that might creep in in the weeks to come!
