Saturday morning my sister and I got up early and headed to Odessa, MO (which is just east of KC) to spend one last night with my nana at her house before she moves to Winfield in a few weeks. There was still a little bit of packing to be done and a few boxes that needed to be labeled.
The land where the house sits is the same land my nana grew up on as a child and where her mother lived until she passed away. Then in the mid-70’s my nana and papa retired and moved from Independence, MO to the farm. This is the house they built.
I took my camera so we could have a few pictures of the house and surrounding land. I’m hoping to put together a collage to give to her for Christmas. I tried to take pictures of things that would be meaningful like . . .
the laundry line where she has hung all of her clothes to dry over the years
We had a great “girls” weekend and even managed to go out to dinner and do a little shopping. Even though it’s going to be hard to say goodbye to the farm it will be so nice to have nana closer so we can see her more often.
