My program today was in Hamilton, OH. Four back-to-back presentations at the Miami University campus. What a perfect day…a screamingly blue Fall sky, holding my favorite birds for a rapt audience at a beautiful college campus. It made me want to sign up for classes.
That second-to-last sentence just hit me. Rapt for raptors. Hee hee.
Now for something completely different (any Monty Python fans out there?)
I took the girls with me to Hobby Lobby yesterday. If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, you are missing out! Everything you need if you are a “crafty” person. I am handmaking Isabelle’s birthday party invites so it was off to the card aisle.
Hobby Lobby starts putting its Christmas stuff out around August. And it’s all half off this week! The girls love to wrap themselves in the tinsel and be movie stars.
Random photo: I started scanning older pics from before the age of digital.
This is my Mom and me at one of my bridal showers. I love Mom. She is the kind of mom that everyone else wants to have. All my friends wanted my Mom to adopt them so they could have her around, too. I am so lucky to have her. She did her best with my rebelllious stage (from the ages of 12 to 25) and although her kids aren’t perfect, she turned out a couple of halfway decent people.
When I drop the girls off at school, I sit in wonderment and disgust at all the damn minivans. Everyone, with the exception of a few BMW’s, drives up in an SUV or minivan. And it’s not like they have 10 children to shlep around. More like 2. What a waste. And if you are going to drive a gas guzzling monstrosity around, please do all of us a favor and LEARN HOW TO DRIVE IT. What a bunch of dopes. Taking corners like they are driving an 18 wheeler, hardly able to see over the steering wheel. Jeez.
