Every week I participate in “Stream of Consciousness Sunday”, hosted by Fadra of AllThingsFadra.com. The idea is to type for 5 minutes, a brain dump of sorts, and then to publish without editing the writing at all.
We left the library with our few books and headed downtown. The intention was to hit the art museum and wander around, but the girls were a little too energetic for that. Instead we ended up at the large cemetery downtown – Springwood Cemetery. It’s a peaceful and beautiful place, with lots of hills to tire out little legs.
I was figuring the girls would be bored within minutes, but they were fascinated with the tall and very old headstones, and we ended up wandering for a good 2 hours in the heat, before calling it a day. We found lots of old names from our city, as well as my great-grandparents’ graves. It was a surprisingly beautiful way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
