Happy Flag Day to those who live in the United States! The beloved husband flies our flag every day during the summer.
It takes a village – I was brought to tears this week. I was driving on a back road and saw that the car in front of me had come to a complete stop for no apparent reason. Then I saw the reason. It was a parade of Canadian geese crossing the road. Not just any parade either. It was a whole village. There had to be close to 40 or 50 goslings with adult geese situated front, back and spaced in between, like you would see with a grade school procession. All very well-behaved. The car was taking pictures with their phone. I wish my phone took better pictures. I was also grateful that they stopped to appreciate the moment. Canadian geese are considered a nuisance by many in my area. Personally I find them to be beautiful and graceful and no crankier than most people these days.
Pizza Friday – In case you missed it, Friday was pizza day. The beloved husband and I went to lunch for pizza. We couldn’t get into the first shop because it was so busy. We drove to another and although we did get pizza, it was much busier than usual. I wish I’d get an email announcing these days so that we could avoid them.
New furniture – (See header) Our new furniture came on Friday. Woo hoo! I was able to sell my old stuff on Facebook (thanks for your suggestion on that). The surprise was that although the cats spent a lot of time smelling it, no one has jumped on it for a nap. I wonder how long that will last. Oh yes, we had a huge thunderstorm with horizontal rain that drenched the cushions within six hours of getting it.
Talking about the new stuff – The new furniture cushions are plain. The old ones were a palm leaf pattern. I miss having a pattern on the furniture. In looking for outdoor fabric to recover the chairs around the table, I thought perhaps I could incorporate a pattern that would coordinate and perk it up. Patterns today are very geometric reminiscent of the 70s. Been there done that. Not at all interested. There was one possibility but it would require winning the lottery to purchase enough fabric to recover my six cushions. There weren’t many florals and I didn’t love any of them. One thing I know about me is that if I don’t love the fabric, I won’t make the covers.
So how was your week and what do you know about yourself for sure?
