Things Change

This morning I was up early.  I had a chance to read the newspaper, which is something that doesn't happen very often.  oh.  my.  Goldie passed away.

I met Goldie years ago (early 90's) at the Presbyterian Church.  Later, she joined the quilt guild.  I always enjoyed visiting with her.  I think the paper said she was 93?

We used to have a yearly Silent Auction, in which guild members could sell their art or stash or what-have-you.  Goldie was more than a quilter.  She was an artist.  I was delighted to purchase two of her paintings.  They've hung since the day I bought them.

They aren't really hanging crooked - I want to reach through the screen and straighten them!  I had to wiggle my way through the piano and the buffet that are currently in the middle of the kitchen.  Then I leaned across the piano to snap the pictures.

That's right!  You've guessed it!  At 7am, my living room looked like this:
The carpet-layers have been here since 8am, and wow!  Things are definitely changing!!!

So sad when someone passes. How nice that you had some of her heart so she will always have a little piece of her heart.

(yea for the carpet layers)
