Has it been two years since I mentioned how Grandma would try to come up with names of flowers--and birds, and who knows what-else--that began with each letter of the alphabet the nights she couldn't sleep?! I thought I had written that just last summer. As it was for Grandma, my not being able to sleep seems to be a life-long issue, and it is worse in this humidity. She would be proud--or bemused, at least, let's get real--to hear that this past week, before giving up and getting up to read--another "Grandma thing," that--I decided to think of Things I Would Have in My Dream Home from A to Z, and although sleep didn't come as a result, I had quite a charming list going: African Violets, Braided Rugs, Calico, Daffodils, Elementary School Photo, Fresh Flowers, Groundhogs, Hyacinths and Hollyhocks, Ice Maker. . . .Whatever gets you through the night.
I'm going home to see my family--and to visit my childhood home!!! ♥--this weekend and could not be more thrilled. Yet to pack a thing, I've just gathered a few tops to take with me and have made a couple to-do lists. Always, with the lists.
