Whew!!! I made it.

What a birthday!   My camping/junking trip got rained out.  So I did the next best thing.  I found an indoor spot. I found a few things.  Now I have to figure out what to do with them.  The  muffin pan goes with my other kitchen junk.  The little green vase? Oh, well it's green, that's enough.  A Life magazine from the week I was born has great illustrations.  A bunch of fringe from a bedspread and a ribbon of, I think, tatting.  Any ideas on what to do with that?Tthanks Vicki and Karen for the good wishes = }

The Big 50 eve

I turn 50 tomorrow, the 13th.  My camping plans were shot down due to rain, so I'll stay home and be lazy.  At my house that doesn't mean the same as some people.  I think I'll go junking instead.  What would you do in this case?

My corner shelf holds many of my "treasures".  A picture of my blessing, a tea set and decorative salad dressing decanter saved for me by relatives long gone.  Oh my Mother's cool shades from the 60"s.
On top are things from my hon's family that they used until the 50 or 60's.  Isn't it all so Cool!!!
I have drank Mt. Dew since the 60's when nobody cared about caffeine and still love it.  The art on the old bottles is adorable.

These are a few of my favorite things

I have a small collection of the white, knobby, glass vanity lamps that I love.  You can also see the old pillowcase edge that I saved and My camper key.

and the rain came down

I woke to the sound of something unusual.  What was it?  I knew I had heard it before, but could quite make it out since it was so long ago and came very lightly.  
Oh, it's got louder.  Now I knew .... this sound was a reason to go back to sleep.  It was a sound of happy flowers and lettuce.  It was RAIN.  Very softly, then getting stronger.  I
It came and went all day, into the night and again the next day.  It was an inconvenience, but a much awaited one.  
Now it feels like "FALL" is here.  I actually have to stay in, not because I have something to do, but there's not much to get into on a day like this.

Do you like to read?

Since I have so much spare time, NOT, I try to keep a book around, just in case.  Sometimes if I time my moments just right, it happens.  I get a few minutes before I fall asleep to read and relax.  Do any of you like to read?  What do you enjoy?  I'm not into the romance stuff, like most women I know.  Usually, a light historical fiction about the pioneer women that we came from encourages me.  

A GREAT read

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book!!!!
Couldn't find anything a the library this trip so I grabbed this.  Saved it for the boring evenings, but OH, MY GOSH....
