i asked grandma if there were any thrift stores nearby that she knew of.
i told her that i like to scour them for items to resell.
she knew of one.
i suggested that mr. traybella stay at home with the boys (3, 7, and 93 year old grandpa) and she could come with me.
she quickly said "let's go!"
i realized on the way to the thrift store that this outing wasn't about what i was going to find but more about grandma. it was so fun having her point out all the farm houses. she knows who lives in almost everyone of them.
she cares for grandpa on a daily basis, all by herself.
she's 92 but i bet you would guess her more to be in her 70's. she is quick, witty and beautiful. she does everything on her own still, including entertaining us with style.
she rarely, if ever, leaves grandpa so an hour or so out was pure joy for her. we had so much fun!
i found these two bowls. i had intentions of flipping them, but think i may hang onto them as a memory of thrifting . . . with grandma.
