The Image That Started It All---
Now You See Them
Now You Don't
Now You See Them Again
It seems I better get used to it.....losing things that is. Last night I wanted to take a picture of the setting above to post. It was late and I realized my camera was out in the car already packed for the trip to the valley. I decided to wait till morning and just stage the picture. ( Now there is cranberry juice in the glass instead of red wine. ) I had the car keys in my hand when I must have gone back into the bedroom and straightened up the bed covers. Once that was done I started out to the car for the camera. But wait, "Where are the car keys?", I asked myself , " I just had them!" After looking everywhere that would be logical for about five minutes I thought to pull the covers all the way back---you see I had already thought to look under the covers but did not pull the covers back far enough. There they were-- When I lost the phone I told myself I was going to slow down so these things don't happen. Yeah, right. I am now deciding to just accept them and know things will get lost but they will get found again.
It is hard to see, but that key ring is an antique piece of silverware made and given to me by Sweet Sage. She might have some for sale in her Etsy shop. You can visit her blog here. Her blog and all her creations are lovely and a special treat.
My Favorite Place To Be Of Late
I stayed up till one thirty last night finishing the book Eden Close. I did not get to bed until eleven. All thirteen items on yesterday's list got completed though. I was shocked. Once I started reading I could not stop. I need to contact the author, Anita Shreve, and tell her she needs to write faster. I only have a couple of more novels left to read until I will have completed reading all of her works.
It is time to pack up the car, do some last minute house cleaning duties before heading out to the valley.
By the way, I just talked to Randy. He cancelled his golf games. I had told him not to but he did so as he said he looked around and thought too that we needed to get one side of the house done, at least, so it could be cleaned. We had a good talk about each of our expectations and we are going to readdress a schedule so neither of us is disappointed in decisions made about when we are working and how much will get done.
