This is my coffee mug. My sister has the same one; we bought them together. It is, perhaps, a tad juvenile, but I still love it (it makes much more sense as a mug for my sister, who is a primary school teacher). Every morning as I drink from this mug, I pretend like Carolyn and I are enjoying our morning coffee together, chatting about the day to come and other things only sisters can enjoy talking about, just like we would every day if we were neighbours.
But in 22 days, I won't have to pretend. My sister will be in Toronto with Isabella and Jeremy, and I'll be on holiday. Carolyn and I will spend some afternoons sewing and quilting while Peter and Jeremy watch baseball. We'll take Isabella to the zoo. I'll get to share a birthday dinner with my brother-in-law (his birthday is just the day before mine!). All of us will visit Niagara Falls.
