Disa's life is filled with work, family, and home projects. She worries about here daughter Hilda, normally full of life and innocent mischief, who has turned quiet and restrained since she started her preschool class last week. Now, Disa is looking forward to her upcoming visit to Grandma for a breather.
Grandma has hobbled past one-hundred years, but is still sharp, following everything going on around her. Living through early poverty on a rural farm, her long life has spanned all the historical events as they unfolded over the years. With her calm chuckling laugh, she always gives Disa a sense of well-being.
Grandma has kept a strange old roasting spit in a well-worn umbrella stand in her entryway for as long as Disa can remember.
