the three sisters


Soooo, the day after the three sisters made the "thread catchers" (see post below) they awoke to freshly fallen snow and 6 degrees outside! So what do the three sisters do? They go to a farm auction! I know, what were they thinking! Well, they are thinking layers, lots of layers! You know, underwear under the jeans, double socks, boots, the works! They sip coffee and hot soup. They still freeze! So they go back to their Mom & Dad's home to regain feeling in their toes... and play "home makeover"!


We really did! We reorganized all the closets, helped Mom weed out stuff, looked through her old pink jewelry box (I still love to do that!), went through an old trunk of plaid wool skirts and pants from high school, rescued them for future craft projects. We had so much fun. Every time I go home, I bring back a piece of my past... something that unlocks a memory that was maybe forgotten or that I want to recapture and preserve in some way. Comforts me. Makes me stay connected to my roots. I'm like that... if you didn't know.

Isn't it funny how the past is so interesting to us now? I keep reminding myself of that (and what our kids and grandkids will remember) when trying to decide what to keep and what to get rid of and when taking pictures. I have very few pics of the house I grew up in, film developing was expensive in those days and who woulda thought we'd want to see it again? Sometimes I think about drawing what I remember, but it probably wouldn't look the same...well maybe some day I try to describe it our capture it somehow...or maybe I'll try to go in the house. Last we saw it had been empty for years and not in great shape...we'll see...
