..., 2010
Today I thought of Trilby and how she used to sneak away on Sundays. Whenever I think of her I smile. She'll make you smile too.

Thank you, Jennifer.


  1. Thank you for sharing this! You have a lovely blog.

  2. With five children, I'd sneak away on Sundays too. Even with one, I do. So sweet.

  3. I love discovering new things through you. Sneaking away is important for me at any age; my own grandmother lived to be 101 so it's important to keep the fire alive and stay spirited. Thanks for making me smile.

  4. Trilby -- I love that same. She's an inspiration.

  5. the thrill of new discoveries...thank you.

  6. hope you're having a lovely weekend :)

  7. between7and9, Thank you.

    mosey, I don't have any and I still enjoy sneaking away on Sunday. With 5 or 9 (my father's mother) I'm not sure what I'd do.

    Vanessa, So, it seems the long life runs in your family. Wonderful! I'm looking forward to all of the stories you'll have yet to tell.

    Jessica, I like her name too. She is an inspiration--she was 101 in 2006, so her sneaking away for the day when her children were young was a very long time ago. It must have been much more of an indulgence than such a thing would be today. I wonder how she did it...

    t does wool, I did enjoy discovering Trilby. It's been a weekend of discovery. Yesterday, I sat on a heated toilet seat in a Japanese movie theater.

    and flowers pick themselves, Thank you. Yes, it has been lovely so far.

  8. trilby did make me smile.
    for wonderful simplicity.
    thank you -

  9. woolf, Glad to know she brought you a smile too.

    Michele, Yes, agreed. I'm sure her taking time for herself helped improve her relationships with those she loved.

  10. Wonderful - what a marvellous woman! And love love love Jennifer's site, especially the part where she talks about being haunted by places and memories as she goes down the street....I can so relate. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I love learning about Trilby and I think that Jennifer's projects are inspired. Sometimes the fleeting connections with strangers are as significant and profound as those with our families and friends.

  12. Annie, I agree with you (and Jennifer) completely. It was a great project.

    nancy, I know what you mean, sometimes it is those chance encounters that really make a deep impression.
