Elizabeth's pups were waiting in her garden room. I opened the door and let them in. Foxy and Bello, West Highland Terriers, were so excited to see me. They settled down quickly and I cleared the table.
We had decided the last time I visited... that we would share photo albums the next time I came. She brought out her boxes and I had my bag with a couple of little albums to share. I love looking at some one's life through their photos and these didn't disappoint. Pictures of her, when she was younger and of her parents and grandparents in Germany. We shared pictures of our children and newer family pictures. Now, I'll tell you how "with it" Elizabeth is...she brought out her newest treasure.....an IPad (I think that's what it is called) with pictures of her great -grand- daughter. She touched the screen and the baby started babbling and cooing and acting up. How wonderful this is for her...to be able to see her little g- grand daughter in motion. She was tickled pink....and so was I. I could see the love for this little one in her eyes.
She knits dishcloths and always gives me one before I leave. I had brought her two giant cookies that I had just made.
We ended our visit with the promise that we would see each other soon. Maybe when it is warm and we can be out in her lovely yard.
I was thinking while driving up the road to my house...how very lucky I am to have a friend living close by...to visit with. No matter what the weather it's always cozy at Elizabeth's and I'm always learning something new with our visits.
