Saturday's Bits And Bobs...

From the top...

1. All of us take water to bed.
2. A kitty collapse after a stroll.
3. Patty and Kate and Sam...our first kitties! This was a poster that hung in all of my classrooms. It was entitled Reading Is Important. I miss my bangs!
4. Prepping for Halloween.
5. OMG...I need this! Look at this itty bitty cake pan thing!
6. Closet organizing...not today...clothes in this closet are in categories!

Simply Stuff!

Other than a few tasty little sale items this week...I am not buying anything...this's that weird in between season...when I am saving up my splurges for fall and winter...for boots and long yummy oversized sweaters and long stretchy black tunicky tops with long long sleeves that you can pull down over your hands...sigh!

These are the clothes my dreams are made of these are from a site I love called Nasty Gal! Don't you love that name?

Enough...for now!

Reading's a saga...a California citrus grove old farm family saga! It's really good...I think I smell lemons every time I open it up!

Happy Friday!
We are mulching amazing heat and humidity!

Book News!

Reading this...a family loaded with issues...a gay son, a divorce, a daughter's secrets...hmmm.

In the mail...more enticing books!

Raining buckets...I think the pond is filling up right now! These boys are waiting for it!

If I was still teaching...I would be ten minutes away from my the arrival of my students and inside recess! Pencils would be sharpening, someone would ask when is it lunch the day would begin...the long long long first day! But instead I am going to lunch with two ex teacher friends!

Happy Monday!

It Must Be Us!

While checking in to our hotel Friday my husband was literally held hostage by a 94 year old a matter of seconds I heard fragments of stories about the war, he gave Den his card, and wanted him to come to his room to hear even more war stories!

The elderly gentleman was very sweet, his daughter thanked us for being patient and kind to him but all we were trying to do was check in!

Then later...literally moments after being seated at our k.d.lang concert...I mean we just sat down...the people next to us began chatting to us...I mean we did not even have a moment to ourselves...and we knew that the man was in a horrific accident and he described every injury and surgery, we learned where they lived , that they took a bus to Manhattan, he could never drive again, their room was comped, the woman won $800.00 on penny slots and their son followed the poker circuit.

Is it us? Do we look like we need to know everything about the strangers around us?

We love people but we also love just us...we love to sit and talk to each other...we don't look around and try to find people to talk to...we are content...and yet we seem to attract the dozens!

What is it about us?

I think I need to practice looking distant and Lucy!

Happy Sunday!
