Wow, I have been absent for some time now. Busy little bee.
The title of my post is a phrase from A Midsummer Night's Dream, which I saw last night at The Cotuit Center for the Arts. That phrase just stuck with me - isn't it neat? I have been going to so many events lately! I 'll have to remember to post about them.
Thanks to everyone who has wished me well on my Promising News! It got even more promising after that entry- so I will be working on that and reporting back when I have Definite Good News. Then we can all celebrate with creme brulee and key lime pie. How's that sound?
I had an awesome day of yard sale-ing yesterday with my honey. I was so psyched that I documented most of it to share with you!
Look at those darling little appliques!! 50 cents each! and that old school chalkboard? Just a buck! I suggested to my honey that we put the chalkboard up in the kitchen so we can write love notes and grocery lists on it. He said we can also put a list of chores for the pets to do- Zeus: dishes, Thor: laundry, Mercury: vacuum. We're not sure what we'll have Riley do.
Have I introduced all of the pets? I don't think I have. Well, here is Zeus at least. He is The King of the Dogs. Here he is helping me in my quest to document my scores yesterday.
I was trying to figure out how I wanted to photograph this... uh... this gear? I'm calling it a gear. I have no idea what it is but I love it. So I am walking around with my gear in one hand, camera in the other, just walking around the yard and here comes Zeus and I just grab this shot. Love that red and pink ( red and pink!!) sweet william with the lady's mantle. And Zeus, stopping to smell the flowers.
A couple of days ago, I decided that I want to get sandalwood mala beads . I have been using a mantra/chant lately and thought it would be good for me to get into a real practice of it. I love how sandlawood- I mean the actual wood itself- smells so good when it is warmed in the hands. Yum!
So I am at this estate sale yesterday and I spy this wooden bead necklace- I immediately bring it to my nose to smell it, and yes!!! Sandlawood! It's not a mala, but pretty close! The mantra I have been using is for abundance and prosperity- and here is something I want just appearing for me! I love that! ..... (there i go being excessive with my exclamation marks, please indulge me.)....... In the car afterward, I kept rubbing the beads to bring out the scent. I lift them to my true love's nose and tell him to smell. He doesn't smell them! He must have a broken sniffer, because they totally smell! I keep rubbing them. Literally at least three more times I make him sniff the beads, "Sorry, honey, I just don't smell anything!"
Hmmph. Zeus, above- he smells them. Good boy!
More scores from yesterday to come- just want to make sure I don't lose this post. That really pisses me off. Save and close!
