I ask myself this question many times. Last weekend I took the Friday off and, picking up my Eldest Daughter and Grandson, we took off to the land down south – and just north of the Mexican boarder – to my Middle Daughter’s. What fun we had. Eldest is in cosmetology college and Middle Daughter and I were treated. She had her fringe trimmed and eye brows waxed. I had my hair trimmed. We both became gorgeous after Eldest finished with her make up kit.
We enjoyed lunch out (have you ever had fried asparagus?) – and a day of shopping. Unlike my usual self, I really enjoyed this shopping trip and came home with luxury bed linens and a pair of much needed non-sandle shoes.
I also had the opportunity to enjoy watching all three grandkids play and have fun. Not a harsh word or a tear appeared, which when you think about a 4 year old, a 6 year old and a 12 year old playing, that in itself was a bit of a miracle. All we heard was laughter and the sounds of fun.
Son-in-law really shined that weekend too. He had a pot of home-made Tuscan bean soup awaiting us upon our arrival Friday evening. Sunday morning he treated us to omelets that were to die for! And, Saturday evening while the two daughters were involved in a sewing alteration project, he entertained me with delightful conversation.
To say I had a great time is clearly an understatement. What fun I am having being so close to these two beautiful and talented ladies!
