Today, I broke with the tradition of grabbing my camera and heading out into Lawrence County, Illinois and snapping photos for the opportunity to travel and hour south, to Evansville, Indiana and Christmas shop with my mother. Being that this was the last official week of Fall, my photos will look just the same from a scenery standpoint, therefore, I figure I am not missing this one weekend.
Frankly, I needed to get away for the day! Since my brothers passing, it has been a culmination of emotions, that today, I was able to handle and move on with. This would have been the next time he and I would have gotten together with our mother and I wanted to do this, knowing he was there with us! It was a wonderful time! From Cheeseburgers In Paradise, with their awesome food, to Eastland Mall, which was packed to the gills with people and great deals! I am so very thankful to know that this year, I, myself will be giving them one heck of a Christmas with so many of the things on their lists!
I drove to Evansville and also back home listening to Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, wow, I had forgotten just how much I loved their style of music. Music is such soothing therapy and it so set the mood for a wonderful day! Do you have any classical suggestions? I’d love to hear them!
Now comes time to sit back down and figure out just why Cristena Jonson was late to class! I am just as curious as Mario, Louis and Sindy! I hope you have had a wonderful day and tried to Live With Passion and my God Bless Newtown!!
