And I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Write this:
Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on."
"Blessed indeed," says the spirit,
"They will rest from their labours, for the deeds follows them."
Quite a while back my cousin messaged me to ask if I would like my dear grandmother's
desk. I said yes but she had a time requirement which I was not able to make.
Last weekend my brother called and asked if I still wanted it.
He had picked it up and would bring it by my house.
It is old and I don't mean antique old...just old and sort of beat-up.
I cleaned it up and did some minor repairs to the hinges.
Placed a picture of my beloved grandmother on the top of it.
She was born in 1898! She lived to be 98 years old!
I still miss her and think of her often.
My grandchildren at Camp Verne during my daughter and son-in-law's
Everyone brought something good to eat.
It was a perfect day.
My husband and I went out for a very early breakfast at the Driftwood,
which is a little place just down the street.
It is on the harbour and has been in business since...I'm not sure.
Probably since the 1950s anyway...maybe longer.
I could see the sun rise reflected in the window across the street.
I quickly ran outside and took a few photos before my pancake order came.
You can see that there was another photographer down on the dock.
I got back to our table just as my favourite waitress was putting my pumpkin pancakes down.
Mmm, mmm, mmm were they ever good.
As I drove to work the other day I noticed a pile of garbage/treasure at the end of a driveway.
It was trash day. I backed my car up and jumped out to grab two beautiful old bowls.
One man's garbage is another man's gold.
Did I mention I have today off?
In honor of Veteran's day our school is closed today!
While I will never complain about having a Monday off for a long weekend
having a Friday off instead feels especially decadent.
What a treat!
