One of my favorite words is "serendipity." According to the dictionary it means:
1. an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.
2. good fortune; luck: the serendipity of getting the first job she applied for

When my sister was visiting we were browsing through an antique shop. She called me over to look at a set of silverware. "Look familiar?" she asked. It was the same pattern that was on a few pieces that we used as children. As we looked closer, we saw it was monogramed -- with the letter "H." H is the initial of our maiden name!!! Serendipity!!
I came home with a new set of silverware.

It has been awhile since I have written, but as most of you know, sometimes the mood to write just isn't there.

I had a wonderful three days with my sister this past weekend. It had been quite awhile since she visited me down here in Delaware, although I am up in her neck of the woods much more often. Whether driving north or south, parts of the trip are just plain grueling - lots of heavy, high speed traffic.

We spent lots of time talking, talking, talking, shopping at thrift and antique stores and, of course, eating. We went to the Historic Lewes Farmers Market Saturday morning and then that afternoon we visited the local lavender farm. It was beautiful and smelled wonderful.
