to the bank today
then we decided
to head to these two little
vintage/antique shops in
the nearby sweet little
dutch influenced town
that i do all my
banking and grocery shopping-
i scored a darling wicker purse
at least i think it is darling
and it was a whole four dollars. ;)
love the design on the handles
and the lining-
i could not pass this little beauty up!
in this little town is our
local annual county fair
it is going on this week-
i have been going to this fair
since i was in junior high
and hardly ever miss it...
i can count on one hand how many times
i have missed the fair in the 30+ years
i have been with my hubbie-
we always go at least one evening together
and when the girls were little,
once during the day to go on rides!
the smells always revive these
last year we missed because
we were in europe...couldn't hardly
complain about that now could i? LOL
but, all year i kept saying
i felt like i missed my 'summer'
last year because, part of summer IS the fair to me!
because of my ankle/achilles surgery
i am unable to go to the fair this year,
pretty disappointing to me...
my daughter with the two year old
texted me asking if i wanted to go
with her and my grandson,
and i had to say no. :(
i am glad i did
because just hobbling with the cane
around the vintage shops
just wore me out,
truly wiped me out
i am hoping my strength returns
but, after my physical therapy
yesterday i was amazingly sore...
humbling to be sure
i need to accept that
i cannot do it all
and this is a hard one for me-
i need to let it go
to allow myself to heal
and to give it to God
