These cold mornings and colder afternoons inspire a cup of tea. This pot came into the shop this week, and I was sorely tempted to buy it. Perhaps it was the glaze that mesmerized me. Maybe the simplicity.
My goal this week is to keep simplifying. I sent a note to each child explaining the new will. Would they please sign a copy and send it back….then I would know they got it.
Talking with Lessa this morning, she asked, “What about the stuff?’
“What stuff,” I asked back my head still plugged with the cold.
“The clock, the chairs…that sort of thing.”
“The will is going to give everything to George,” I said. “When he dies, you two get to split everything. You had wanted to fight over everything. That’s what you told me.”
I didn’t mention the condo.
Really simple. If G dies first, I will make another will. If I die first, give it all to G.
I didn’t say that they would also get G’s family things. But they will. I asked him. He replied that he “has family here now.” I was very touched.
Then again, life is all about changes. If you want me, I will be curled up with a new book and a cup of tea….after I get rid of a bunch of stuff from the kitchen. Simplifying.
- Keeping those on the east coast in my thoughts.
