Vision of loveliness....

We were through Marshall, Illinois back in August.  It is a small bigger than the town I live in, if as big.  But it has the feel of a bigger, busier place.  In the business section of the town, there were these big pots of petunias along the sidewalks...such glorious bursts of color.  They were just so beautiful.  I love it when a town does just add something to a town.
The toot is sleeping still.  She has such a big heart.  She wants to come, but she misses her mommy so bad.  Well, Sarah made the mistake of telling her she could come and spend Friday night, and then said she would come on here yesterday.  Thinking Lorelei would get here and quickly forget it.  Instead, that is all she talked about was that her mommy was going to come.

She went to bed fine, but woke up about 2:00 a.m. wanting to know how much longer till her mama came...and saying she missed her....yet all the time she is doing this, she would pause and say, "Mamaw, know what?"  and I would say, "What?" and she would tell me she loves me.  So after a few distressing minutes, I started telling her things her mommy and Aunt R did when they were children, and things I did...  And she was all ears...every time I paused she would say, "And what else, Mamaw?"

Then I started telling her things Otto would say if he could talk...oh, my did she ever laugh. I have got to remember that would probably be fun to do on drives.
It is a beautiful day here, today.  I am hoping to either get something done this coming week...hoping I can get my creative juices flowing.  And also I would not mind taking a day trip somewhere, but not sure where.  I guess a lot will depend on the weather.
