My Goodbye Breakfast With Ms. Geranium And Hunka

Still in denial, but I guess when I pulled up and saw this moving truck it finally hit me....she is really, really moving (gee, I don't think that truck is big enough)!!!!! We have moved quite a few times, but I think Sharon has the record for the number of boxes. These pictures are just the tip of the ice burg!!! There is some bits of poor Daisy in the upper left corner just laying there all sad :-(!!!! I love all the woodwork that hunka did on the shelf unit in their family room. So many, many wonderful touches of his handy work throughout the house. Some lucky family to be getting some of Hunka's original work not to mention the wonderful valances throughout that Sharon made.

Ms. Geranium never ceases to amaze me though. In the midst of all the packing, having deadlines changed, and changed again, canceling the movers, having the movers come back and on, and on she still had time to find herself a good deal. The neighbors down the street were having a garage sale and look what she found!!!! This wonderful old chest..as close as I could get with the wall of boxes all around....it's a beauty!!

I took breakfast (and stole this picture from Sharon's blog!!!) from our favorite breakfast eating place...and Sinful French Toast is our favorite and now Hunka's too. Sinful hardly describes this tasty treat ....EXTREMELY YMMMMMMMMMO does!!! It was fun to sit and reminisce about old times. Those two are quite the pair. They are a great team and through all this they have managed to keep their sense of humor. I know that this is going to be a wonderful great adventure for them, and the bonus being close to the boys and family! While we were eating and talking old times, we heard the sound of a REALLY BIG truck..hunka assured us it was the cement truck down the street. Sharon went and peeked around the bushes ...some cement truck!!! It was the biggest moving truck I have ever seen, arriving a day early! Good thing.....I just knew that dinky truck would not do the trick.

Saying goodbye is never easy, but I know there are sure going to be some wonderful stories about their trip...so I plan to stay tuned for all the episodes of "Ms. Geranium and Hunka On The Move."


Bye to you Sharon♥♥♥♥♥....you know I'm gonna miss you :-( !!!!!

What a sweet thing to do -- and you did it so stylishly! (I already read Ms. Geranium's post with the photos of the flowers and dishes.)

Hi Cheryl,
Even though most of us really don't know one another personally, having a peek into their lives through blogging brings us a little closer. I had a little tear in my eye, especially with the last picture. Must have been hard to say good bye, but just think how fun her sleepovers are going to be now...you'll be staying for days.

Anne Heidi said...

Awwww- that was so sweet of you take Ms. Geranium and Hunka breakfast! I didn't know Moda made plates.... they're gorgeous! Where ever did you find them?
I just want to hug you gals - that last picture had me in tears (and I don't even know you guys but feel somewhat connected thru BlogLand) You can always go visit them- right?! Bring your Annies! What a slumber party that'd be *winks* Bless you for being such a sweet friend! *sniffles*

It's always very sad to say good bye to a friend but the memories will last forever!

Carla said...

Awww that makes me cry. I loved all the get togethers you all had. I'll miss them.

Kris said...

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

I'm almost crying really. How hard to lose her. Well not lose but you know what I mean. You two have given me such entertainment together from time to time. I can kind of feel what you feel. Either that or menopause is coming out!

Nan said...

What a lovely, heartfelt post, Cheryl! It brought tears to my eyes. I know you and Sharon will not lose touch. Besides, now you have somewhere to visit!

I am sure you will miss them and they miss you deeply! Our neighbors nextdoor for thirtysome years and the ones behind us for 26 years moved a couple years ago...I still miss them!!! We keep in touch but still miss them so much! A young man who was in school with our daughter bought the one behind us and the one next door is a summer home
