Michigan to Florida with Eric

Monday, February 23rd, 2004

Well, my Brother Eric and I spent a long but companionable day together today getting from Michigan to Lakeland Florida. I left my house around 8am and we got here to Lakeland after 7pm for a late dinner (the sun was down already).

We got great prices on tickets (considering that at least Eric’s school is on spring break this week) but it meant a long haul. We stayed on the same plane the whole time, but we went from Detroit, to Chicago, to Nashville, to Orlando (I knit two complete cuffs on sox made from Mountain Colors Bearfoot, on size 0 [2mm] Brittany birch needles). Then we rented a car to drive about an hour to Lakeland. When we got here, Mom fed us a wonderful meal of simple comfort foods, then we went for a walk.

I tell you, it is such a luxury to have this gift of time with my beloved brother. We realized that we have not spent a whole day together, probably since we went on a cruise with my old workplace… and I quit that job in 1999. I guess it has been about 5 years since we had a full day together. I’m loving every minute.

It’s snowing in Lansing tonight. However, I’m sitting here in Mom’s house and it is warm, 80 degrees F.

No pictures today. Picture a palm tree in your mind…
