Saturday was a fun day. I drove to Ipswich, MA for a much over due visit and lunch with my friend Olga, another Sewing Guild sewing friend. She lives alone, and still drives her car! Her neighborhood is having a yard sale this weekend, and recruited me to haul items from her basement, and set up shop in the garage because it was time to empty out the basement. It’s amazing what this elegant lady collected. We arranged sewing books, kitchen items fit for an antique shop, discovered her sister’s watercolors and paintings, we found items she had forgotten she even had. The biggest surprise was the box of ties: wide ties, narrow pencil ties, bright ones with flowers, and a few we decided no one would have eve worn. The neighbor sale was Sunday, with great success with gorgeous sunshine.
Visiting Kathy is always a treat. She and I enjoy going through old family albums, figuring who is who, what is where, and reminiscing about the great fun we all use to have. Kathy is a great one for this, she and Dad use to spend hours going through the old albums.
Leaving Kathy in Ithaca and the great coffee in Owego, I hit the road and head for Blandon, Pennsylvania to visit my friend Danny, his wife Beth and daughter Kelly. This destination takes me over Pennsylvanian's rolling hills, past scenic rivers, and through coal mining country.
Leaving these memories behind I was off to Atlanta.
