Today: May 24, 2012

outside . . .  cloudy skies with winds blowing  down the plains at  25 to 30 mph, definitely a ‘bad hair’ day

cooking/eating . . .  lots of salads and fresh fruits --  would be healthy if I didn’t love Thousand Island dressing so much

creating . . .  little  knitted baby hats -- and with luck, this weekend will start a baby girl quilt

remembering . . . to slow down and enjoy the little things that truly make my life sweet

reading . . .  so many books, (a Terry Brooks series, ‘Shelter Me’, ‘Lost & Found’, ‘The Choir’).- between my Kindle  & the Better World Books website, there's usually 3 books in rotation, with many more waiting their turn

hoping . . .  for a quiet long holiday weekend – filled with family, food and some sewing/knitting (and maybe a movie too)

hearing . . .  the birds in the mornings – we have a Mockingbird  in the neighborhood and his songs make me smile

home . . .  enjoying our new carpet – as my youngest grandbabe said ‘it’s soft & fluffy’ on our bare feet   

tonight . . .  spending time with two grandbabes (rumor has it that we might make a run to Braums for ice cream)

from my picture journal . . .  flowers for the front walk - Million Bells & Broom

Everyone has a story . . . some stranger than others

Sometimes I see people here in the City and wonder 'what's their story?'  Because you know, in a lot of cases,  it's got be doozy.  For example: Monday night on my drive home I saw a car with all sorts of bumper stickers, all inviting Aliens to come to Earth.  That was strange enough, but the owner of the car (for the record - the driver was male) had drawn alien pictures all over the back glass -- Aliens jumping around, waving, smiling -- very odd indeed.

You have to wonder about the gentlemen driving this vehicle - and his story.
Is he a big SciFi fan?
Is he promoting a business dealing in Alien memorabilia?
Perhaps he is an Alien and wants to go home?
All these things went through my mind as I was smiling at his Alien art-work.

But what really made me laugh was the 'Obama-Biden' bumper sticker tucked in among all the Aliens.  I'm sure this isn't what the Obama-Biden volunteers pictured when they were passing out bumper stickers?!! 

Note:  Sorry no picture of the 'Alien Car' - by the time I thought to take a picture -  the Aliens made a right turn and were gone.

It's a puzzle

Why is it that I can putter around the garden, making things all neat and tidy --
but, have little interest in folding the laundry that's piled on top of the dryer ?
