She felt that it was lying if you called in sick and really weren’t sick. So she was honest and expressed her need for a change in scenery for the day.
Yesterday I told my boss, my husband, that I needed a mental health day. A friend picked me up from the office at 10:00 and we drove about 45 minutes to Crooked Willow. It is barn that has been remodeled and the out buildings into a set of antique and gift shops.
I’ve been driving past this place for the past five years thinking someday I will find the time away from work to go and check it out. It was a blue sky day after the past four rainy days, perfect!
I’ve decided that I want the room up in the top of the remodeled silo. Windows all around, kind of like the princess thing going on. I could get some serious daydreaming done up there.
I love that people have dreams and follow them through to completion for others to enjoy. This place was beautiful. Everywhere you looked you could tell that someone lovingly thought about the placement of every item. I’m sure that it was in hopes of selling more items but it was more than just that, it was pleasing to the eye. You wanted to look more.
This is a view inside the Summer Kitchen. One of my favorite things in this building was a bed hanging from the ceiling from four large ropes with a cushy mattress on top of a platform decorated with a fresh looking blue and white quilt, so inviting. I didn’t take a picture of the bed but here are a couple of others things I did take pictures of in the Summer Kitchen.
As we wandered, my friend and I talked. Dreams, hopes and plans for the future perhaps just as two other friends had done at some time in the past to dream this place into existence.
