My three sisters, my mom and I all spent the afternoon together! What is better than lunch at Applebee's and shopping? It was just us girls today. A very rare occasion when it's only us. The original family.
Later when some went home and husbands joined us, we did some long neglected chores around Mom's house, had some home cooking and chocolate.
The evening ended with five of us over at my house, all around the dining room table playing Apples to Apples. Wayne remarked that all of us have known each other since 1970. Some of us going back to as early as 1951. And here we are laughing together all evening. Nice. We are making memories here at Tortoise Cottage.
