December 1 – We are on the sixth day of my grandmother’s wake. Tomorrow, we say our final goodbyes as she will be laid to rest on her final resting place. She will be buried beside our grandfather who passed away almost 20 years ago.
Anyway, since we arrived home last Sunday evening, I’ve been running on caffeine. And I think I am not the only one. My siblings and cousins and basically the direct descendants of my grandmother were all running on caffeine, too. Well, coffee drinking runs in the family, so to speak, so no surprise there. LOL!
Today, my aunt will be arriving. My grandmother’s children are complete. It will be a long day since it is going to be the last day. So many things to be done, so many stories to be heard.
A handful of people are still here and I can hear them singing. It is good. As for me, the last coffee I drank is making me sleepy. Guess I need a few hours’ sleep to prepare for the multiple tasks ahead.
Soon I will share a glimpse of the highland culture and traditions. I am learning a lot. For now, pardon my more or less incoherent thoughts.
Okay, off to neverland for now. G’night, y’all!
My most sincere condolences.
