Thank you for the well wishes. How could I not feel better after receiving them? Slow going, but hopefully on the mend. During the last two weeks I've grown an enormous appreciation for a healthy mind, body and spirit. I can see how they all need to work together.
During the last two weeks I had only left the house twice! One to pick up necessities, the other, a short jaunt to my favorite twice a year vintage market. My 84 year old friend Evalyn went along with me. You might remember me talking about my sweet friend. Evalyn was my neighbors nanny and we became friends the moment we met. I am sure everyone says that when meeting Evalyn. She's a special soul.
There are a couple favorite vendors at this show that I always skip to first. When I arrived at her spot I couldn't help but first notice the outstanding selection of vintage under garments and sweet blouses.
They were laundered and nicely starched and quite appealing to me as most white garments usually are. Remember the movie the Great Gatsby? I watch that movie just to see the wardrobe. The movie deplicts my favorite era, circa 1920.
This sale is temporarily housed in the towns high school. It's a fund raising activity for the school. School volunteers prepare homemade pies and soups and chili and offer their goodies in the cafeteria. I always have to get a little something so that I can sit down in the cafeteria. Instantly I'm taken back to my school days and I get this warm soulful feeling.
Funny, while Evalyn and I were standing talking in the cafeteria a volunteer asked me if my name was Jill? It was an old classmate from those school days I mentioned. Although she was 10 years or so my senior Karen led the high-school band with her baton. I remember watching her in awe as she strutted, (video funny) her stuff and threw that baton high in the air and caught it.
Enjoy caring and sharing spring days.
