Even though Sweetpea flew home on Saturday, I'm still finding little things around here that remind me of her visit.
On Monday I saw, on my desk at work, the tablet that Sweetpea had drawn on when I took her to my office to "show her off." It was purple and green squiggles - quite artistic, I thought.
Yesterday I found several blocks, under our couch. I wonder how they got there?
When I found a spot in the closet to store the vaporizer her mama bought, while she was here, I couldn't help wondering if Sweetpea is still coughing and sniffling, or is all better.
When I finished up the last of the chocolate covered gummy bears (thank you, Gloria, they were delicious!) I thought about how Sweetpea had looked forward to eating one or two after each dose of the medicine she was taking (and a few other times, as well).
Today I accidentally bumped Rocky (my robotic dog) with my foot, and wondered if he'd be sitting idle until Sweetpea's next visit.
As I was recording our credit card receipts into my Quicken register, I came across the one from JC Penney for the two spring dresses I bought for her, and I smiled remembering how Kelsey and I enjoyed watching her twirl and turn and model them in front of the dressing room mirror.
And tonight I was looking through my many birthday cards, came to the one "from Sweetpea," and took out the sweet bookmark ribbon that was inside the card. I put it inside the book I'm currently reading.
