First I would like to thank everyone who stopped by yesterday with such kinds thoughts of condolences and comfort. My brother was able to attend the funeral and said that it doesn't get any easier. He wishes we could go back to the days of innocence. Those days when we were all at Mammaw's for Christmas, cousins sleeping on the floor so that we could all be together for the holidays.
It seems my uncle had gone to the VA Hospital in Jackson MS and spent the whole day there for doctors and dental appointments. They think he fell asleep behind the wheel and ran off the road around 7 pm. He died in the hospital shortly before midnite. When something unexpected like this happens, it is hard for the heart to catch up with the brain. Acceptance takes a little longer for those directly affected. Distance gives me an advantage in that regard.
Yesterday was a beautiful day here. Hubby and I took our first trip out to Friday Market. When I first came to Kuwait, it was just a big open area where folks would lay out their wares on tables or blankets on the ground. Although they still do that, at least they are now under covered pavillions.
Everything can be found there from the old to the new.
I wanted all those beads in the bowl there on the lower left, but the guy wanted way too much money for them.
I love blue and white ceramic so this little coffee grinder came home with me.
Along with these little trays that are just perfect for Fall gift giving. Pumpkin-shaped sugar cookies, crocheted pumpkins and a finished doily.
The rest of the day was spent in quiet contemplation. Crocheting. Coffee with friends.
"With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony,
and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things."
Wishing you a joyful weekend. Friendship blessings, Tammy
