Where does my joy come from today.....
.... sister, hubby and I went to Bennington, Vermont today. We went last year, and found that the churches were all closed, and everything shut down around 5 pm in the off season. We headed out earlier, and went straight to the Grandma Moses exhibition. She was a local farmer's wife, who decided at age 70 to cut back the physically demanding farm chores and took up oil painting instead. She created a lot of naïve rural farm life inspired paintings. What a fun exhibition. We were not allowed to take pictures of the paintings, but there are some of the other parts of the museum.
....after having a snack (my poor sister gets hungry and then cranky after 10 minutes in museums, lol), we went to the information booth and were directed to three covered bridges we wanted to see.
.... and then my favorite, the cemetery where poet Robert Frost is laid to rest. Overlooking historic Bennington.
What a fantastic day it was!! I love spending time with my hilarious sister and my silly husband. We laughed a lot and celebrated life.
