This morning I am leaving for Chautauqua with my sister in law, Aniko. It is a complete turn around trip to pick up the maternity clothes my daughter Emily stored there in a hockey bag under the bed in the room that was hers and Alice’s during their childhood summers. We will drive there, have lunch, grab the hockey bag and stow it in the car and drive back to Ohio. And it was surprisingly badly planned that these things were stored there instead of being brought back to Ohio – and none of us thought of it at the time. But that’s another story.
What is on my mind are the blessings I have had in my life of “other worlds” to live in. I will finish this post when I return tonight, God willing.
Later – Actually the next morning. I am back from Chautauqua now. It was a lovely trip. Traveling with Aniko who has been my sister in law for 37 years was a pleasure. Somehow we haven’t spent much time together lately, so this was a great catch up. And the bag of clothes was so heavy and had to be carried over a little hill of icy snow blocking the house entry, that I was quite grateful for the help dragging it over and to the car. In between, Aniko took me out to Webb’s restaurant for a belated birthday lunch. I feel quite spoiled! And now Emily’s clothes are in Ohio, one step closer to being in Pennsylvania. She is coming for a visit on the 9th of March and can bring them home with her then.
This post turned out to be not at all about living in different worlds, but I think I will get to that one day next week! Sufficient unto the day.
