It was Thursday, May 13, 2021, three days after my father’s passing and the day before the wake and funeral the day after. All the decisions had been made and this one day was an oasis to get out a bit before our daughters came home for a few days. So I patched together a plan for a few hours and got dressed.
If you recall the story of when I was almost completely dressed and my Dad called to take him to the ER. That day I had planned a Happy Hour with friends and I was going to wear the outfit I ended up wearing on this day. I got dressed and did some work on the blog before heading out the door (and polished off a bottle of wine). Don’t worry, it was just the one glass you see here, done mostly for the photo.
My first stop was Avalon Exchange where I sold more there than I ever had before. I took the cash option and left feeling good.
Then I went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I’ve been there often, so I simply slowly walked through, just enjoying being in public. There were a few new things, but nothing big. The Cubs had just been in town to play the Indians, so there were quite a few Cubs fans there.
I needed to pick up a few things for the post-funeral luncheon, so I stopped at Giant Eagle on the way home and did some shopping.
No big story, but a gorgeous day, bright sunshine and cool. It was simply great to have this time. I am blessed.
