Country Roads, take me home. To the place, I belong.
Gosh I love the small town girl in me. I ache when I drive around home in Chautauqua County. Ache to have a life to share with a someone and a family that reminds me of the one I had growing up…the skinned knee, callous barefoot, pigtail wearing, daffodil picking, sunshine freckle faced, salamander catching, all day bike riding, electric blue slushie stained tongue childhood.
Of course, time changes locks on a lot of doors…
While driving around Amish Country (where my mom lives) I asked if we could stop somewhere to get water at the next place we find. 10-15 minutes later we arrive at a Shur-Fine. City Life has spoiled me. Thirsty, now!
Oh the places I can WALK TO in just 10 little minutes in the City.
Of course, oh the places I could walk to in just 10 minutes…
Maybe someday? Maybe not.
Hello Rainbow Inn Fish Fry.
Hello Butterscotch and Vanilla Twist from the Big Dipper.
How about Halloween at the end of June?
Oh how the October weather today was refreshing. I actually just turned OFF MY FAN!
And in other news. HOW THE HECK DID IT GET TO BE JULY ALREADY?
In my tiny, tiny apartment I have precious little space. Believe it or not, I’m, still downsizing. Which means FREE DESK!
Of course all I said was Free Desk. Brown. Decent condition. Some scratches.
And then my friend Bobby got a hold of the page and spiced it up a bit. Now no one will be taking my desk.
This past Saturday I went home and met my new nephew Alex. So cuddly! And to think there was a time when I didn’t like wee babies!
It was difficult dragging myself and my mom out of the baby aisle.
Of course this probably has something to do with the fact that mama’s oldest daughter only has feline children, no grandbabies.
However, mama’s adopted daughter Linda Lu…well she’s having a baby! And we celebrated with a shower on Sunday. See the presents and the baby in the picture, I did that without cropping. How funny!
I could get into a lot of emotional sentiments here, but not today. Linda Lu is one of my oldest, dearest, closest friends and I’m overwhelmed with happiness thinking she’s gonna be a mama.
A wonderful weekend with the best of friends. Life is good.
Baseball. A sport I could do without, but for the hot-dogs, beer, fireworks and friends. However a 69th Anniversary Season? Hmmm, Baseball Digest, I might be able to get on that bandwagon.
1/2 of the men in the office had this outfit on yesterday. And by half I mean 3/6.
