Two dear friends have returned to their home. First my beloved Sadie. When she passed away in the city almost a year ago her ashes were put in front of a small bench with St. Francis in front of it. I placed her collar around this small statue and I always see Sadie when I look at this bench.
Also the old table from England that I purchased 40 years ago has returned to my home. Circa 1780 and 10 ft long. It has been stored in my garage for 2 years. Because this table is so long I kept having thoughts that is was too large for this smaller home. My contractor cut almost 12 inches off the length. This was possible because the top was separate from the base. I trusted him totally to do this. Had thoughts of donating to a library but I am so happy that I can enjoy it for some more time. I smile as I view it because it fit right in and looks completely at home. Oh the memories this table brings to mind. All the special meals and special people that sat around this table. Many of these dear ones are no longer living. I put 2 chairs on each side and when the occasion arises will add the other 8 chairs.
I know a little more about Yellow Jackets at this time. A helper discovered a huge nest last week. Really Big - He put on a rain suit and sprayed and put gasoline in the hole. He was stung half a dozen times but did not make him sick.
I am so thankful that he discovered it and not "me" or my little granddaughters or any visitors while walking.
Enough news from the country on this beautiful sunny noon day. I might add that the 20 boxes that I vowed to take weeks to unpack - have been unpacked!!!
