Last week I got the whole tourist treatment at my Daughter’s house. I never lifted a finger (though I did ask), my laundry was even done but not by me, I was wined and dined (in my case water) and chauffeured around to wherever I so desired. I think you call that a vacation?
I saw and shopped in several fabric stores. Went to a huge Outlet Mall which is within walking distance of my Daughter’s house, but not recommended because of traffic and mostly because who wants to carry a million bags up the top of a hill!?
DD and her sweet boyfriend (the SWEETEST!) entertained me and gave me a great visit. I think I’ll go back!
There was an agenda made and adhered to. Without it I would have been lost. DD scouted out fabric stores for me before I got there. That is one sweet girl! In fact she even let me buy her some fabric because… she wants to sew! I did foresee this and give her a basic sewing machine for Christmas (so she could mend once in a blue moon). Boy was I surprised that she wants to make things like letter shaped pillows and kid things. So I started her off with a few instructions and a few quarters to make pillow cases. If she really likes it I’ll get her a better machine.
During this visit I also met some of Sweet Boyfriend’s family. I can I say I was terrified! We all want to make a good impression and we don’t want to scare people away right? Well that was my fear but I shouldn’t have been worried because the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and I met two of the sweetest ladies! I’m so happy that they are in my Daughter’s life and I hope to get to know they better. They made me feel so special and happy to meet them. I hope I can learn that trick of welcoming people and easing their silly worries.
Then the day arrived to visit the “#2 place to travel to Europe without leaving the USA” (according to Huffington Post). DD wanted me to take a picture under a store front sign with my birth name on it. I was born a Rasmussen and according to Wikipedia it’s a Danish name. Looks like I need to brush up on my heritage. It also explains my lack of color within my own family.
And that’s my long winded post. I hoped you enjoyed it! I’ll be back soon with what’s really keeping me busy.
Take care my friends, Brandie
