Words please! – I received a card this week. As soon as I opened it, there was glitter everywhere. It was all over my hands and the counter and probably the floor too. I have cats who lick their paws and I’m not excited about getting it in my food either. I put any glittery card directly in the trash. I’d rather be wowed with words.
Speaking of words — Finally after years of saying we would, we joined our local library. It’s a pretty awesome place and quite overwhelming. I have two books to read for the upcoming holiday. We have a family library book story. My niece had her husband return some books. A while later she got a past due notice. He swore he returned them. She was sure they were still in his truck. She did what any smart wife does and told him to figure it out. The answer was simple. He returned it to the wrong library. There are two libraries about the same distance from them. Oops! This must happen often. We all wondered that the libraries didn’t talk to each other.
So gorgeous! – Why did we think we weren’t gorgeous in our youth? There is a beauty to youth itself that goes beyond model stuff. Maybe it’s an innocence or a lack of being jaded. I saw a video clip of Bruce Springsteen from the 80s. He is an attractive older man now but he was a hottie in his youth. I wish I would have appreciated myself more back then. Better yet I wish I still looked like that!
What a racket – I awoke to a loud racket for two days this past week. In our neighborhood most people (but not the beloved husband!) get a professional service to mow their lawn. The magic day is Friday mornings usually. We had a neighbor have a more extensive yard cleanup that required a backhoe and very loud equipment. Two days of noise with back-up beeps every two seconds.
Visiting bloggers – Most of us blogger buddies don’t live close enough to ever meet in person. Last week I was lucky to see Anne Mehrling and her husband John on their way to a family event. There is an advantage to living near an interstate. Anne writes a blog that chronicles life events. It’s full of road trips, friends, family and yes FOOD! You can find her here.
So how was your week?
