Yesterday a Starbucks with a little adventure….

Woke to a really beautiful day, the sun was warm and the sky was a deep blue. Arney gassed up the little Subaru and off I went to Boise. It is a little more than 20 miles on the back roads. I was ready for a little adventure with my 50 dollar gift card B&N my son Cory gave me last May. I wish we had a store here in Nampa, but the drive was really nice.

Bought myself a cup Milky Way Latté and I was ready to find some art Magazines. I bought 5 of them, yep, I had to put some of my own cash in but it was fun.

While deep into making a few choices a friend from church joined me…we talked crafts and I continued on my way with Mages and coffee in hand. Drove home listening to some good sounds and got a call from Mary…I know don’t drive and talk:(

Last, I have finished the tags for the items for Bazaar. I think they work well. And now to decide if I have enough energy to make some other things, before the end of October…maybe!!!!!

It’s October, how can that be????

This Facet is next to the old well.

 DSCN1596DSCN1604 Finn looks very determined about keeping his ball. Then he will bring it to me to throw! I just had to put him on today. He was taken in the sun on what now seems to be his rug.

I was on the phone on this beautiful fall day with my friend Mary.When I heard something and could not figure out where it was coming from.

This facet has not worked for about 15 years and I loved it because it is about 10 feet from my back door. Where my plants are.

My poor dogs think I have lost my mind because I am yelling on the phone about this little facet. I went in the house and got my camera because Arney would never believe this unless he had seen it.

It dripped water all afternoon. And when Arney got home it was still dripping. He turned the handle and water was rushing out of it. So we will see what happens next.

I am sure you know by now that it is the little things that make me happy….:)

As we say good-by to September…..


Along with leaves turning all shades of amber, yellows, and reds, comes the memories of new pencils, paper not yet written on, the smell of new books, and the Pee Chee that was free of doodles and that special guy that you couldn’t stop looking at. The cold leather seats on the morning bus, good old number 10. The new shoes that for the first week gave me a bloody sore on my heal. One size to big, gotta have room to grow. My locker that was always a mess. Open at own risk should have been on the front. A coke and candy bar for lunch…gotta have hair spray and nylon’s. Save that lunch money! Baby sitting for pennies so I could save for a new black wool skirt. Making old clothes look new, thank you Grandma for teaching me to sew. waiting for the bus in 3 feet of snow.

Falling in love, lost love, searching for Mister Wonderful when there were lots of frogs. Going to be a Air line stewardess, come fly with me. To short!!! Best friends, lunch at the senior tree. Flat chest in a world of big boobs. Walking through the fall leaves and feeling the crunch  and waiting to grow up. So this is my September felling….
