Saturday we made a trip to Columbia, Missouri, for a child care training. Unfortunately, upon arrival, we had some terrible news. The trainer who had been planning to head the class, along with her office help, had passed away totally unexpectedly. We have known Annette for several years, had her in my home, exchanged stories of personal experiences and, I feel, were friends. You can imagine the shock and tears that were part of the reactions among our group of caregivers. That’s our job. To care. Being the training was canceled at that point, the decision was made that it was time for my husband and I to regroup and spend some time enjoying life. I think she would have wanted us to do that in her memory.
So we traveled along some side roads on the return trip home, took some great photos, and just took in some views of Mid-Missouri on a September Saturday. I will definitely be sharing some of my pics in the future. But for today, I’m sharing a little purchase I made in Arrow Rock, Missouri, at A Grand Yarn. I highly recommend a look-see.
It’s in this bag. Great things often come in small packages. And this one will be used for me to create a ‘remembrance’ item.
This choice is a definite splurg. I’ve never spent this much on yarn before but it Had to be meant for me on this particular day. 2 things about this package:
- I Loved Alice in Wonderland as a girl so much! I am Sure my mother was sick of reading it to me night after night. And notice the ‘Cheshire Cat’ “Wonderland Yarns” and ‘pigments of imagination’. Mother would agree this is the one for me.
- Notice the “Beautiful Soup: Pot No. 1”? Annette was always demonstrating recipes, helpful hints and reminding us of the importance of keeping up with our menus.
Yep, Annette, this is meant to be! Rest in Peace and See you on the other side!
