Just Us Girls


With my husband away on business, it's been just us girls here in the cottage. We are both down with the ick and the weather is keeping us in our comfy clothes and slippers. Today was a rainy day dream, all about blankets and imagination. We dutifully drank our tea (pinkies out of course) from the good china, worked puzzles, made up our own rules to Candy Land and whispered secrets into each others ears. We only left the warmth and safety of our lair to venture out to the "movie store" to rent fairy epics and animal adventures.



After the popcorn and final credits, we began building. First, we had an old fashioned barn raising, a town sprang up around us, soon the railroad came - we captured wild horses, then set them free again. There was peace in the valley until...Godzilla and Rodan reduced the town to rubble. After the monsters were banished, we celebrated with a wild dance party 'till our stomachs growled. We ordered pizza and then desserted on fresh peeled oranges while on the couch (oh yes we did!) We stayed up late telling "real stories," cuddled up in bed. As I sang the last how I wonder what you are, my girl said to me, "Today was awesome!."

...and I whispered in her ear, "Yes, it was."

Did you notice I got the doll's leg back on - not an orthopedic fix but it worked! I think it went with the tea set. Looks like it was a great day. Hope you are both feeling better.

Sounds like an awesome day! I have many favorite memories of times little Diane and I just "hung out". We might not have had that much fun during an illness, but 2 of our favorite things were: seeing TWO movies at the theater on the same day and having a picnic at Stone Mountain.

Beautifully written!
