I was feeling a little melancholy yesterday afternoon.
Tues and Wed last week Elsie was home for spring break; she and I boxed up her possessions. Then she said goodbye to a few friends and returned to Mankato. She will not be home again before we move.
Louisa was home for the weekend; she and I boxed up her possessions. This is what's left of Louisa's stuff. Her firearms and bow, and the dress she'll wear her last Sunday here. Kind of sad and lonely looking.
On the yellowish wall, she used the bluer color to write the words to a favorite song. On one of the blu-green walls, she used the yellower color to freehand the words to verse 4 of Psalm 23 above and alongside the double doors, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me."
