Random Thoughts


  1. I've always liked pink roses better than red.  Throw a few lavender ones in there, and it's even better!
  2. It feels like September outside.  Cool mornings, no humidity, blue skies.  Such a tease!  I bet we swelter again very soon. ha.
  3. There are fair weather friends and then there are the ones that really care.
  4. My little etsy store is celebrating it's 1000th sale!  And in a quirky, fun kind of coincidence, it's facebook page just got 1000 'likes'! Isn't that fun?  We're celebrating with a sale, too, if you are interested.  Either site will give you a coupon code.
  5. I'm craving peach pie.  Might have to do something about that soon!
  6. We've taken everything out of our living room.  Sold some things, gave some away...shopped on overstock.com in the clearance section and found some very lovely new things.  I'm getting very acquainted with the UPS man this week..haha  Seems like one thing comes every day.  If you haven't shopped that clearance tab, I highly recommend it.  Free shipping, too!
  7. Thanks for all of your sweet messages about Nugget.  It really meant a lot!  It was a little sad yesterday to go to the grocery and not by two bunches of kale, like I've done every week for 8 years! Aw.
  8. Giving myself a pedicure this evening.  I'm thinking red will be a nice change from the ocean blue glitter that is on there now. :)

  1. A rose in any color would smell as sweet.
    But I prefer lilacs.

    1. Yes, red ones smell nice, too. I was going more on the look.

    2. I like the look of varied colors too.

    3. Well, lilacs do come in a few pretty shades!

  2. I seem to pop in as the saddest times. I'm so sorry about Nugget Rabbit. He was a gorgeous rabbit.
    Hope you all are well and I can't wait to see the new LR. It may need another re-do by the time I make it back but.....
    My cousin who does stop by on occasion but doesn't chat wants me to tell you she LOVES your cat collection. :)
    Her last rescue passed just weeks ago with kidney cancer. Her heart is broken but she will eventually take in another one/two/three to love.

  3. I know what you mean by No.3. I feel like going out into the street and shouting "Helloooooo? Are there any of my 'friends' out there?" The silence would be deafening. Ha!

    As to No. 2, it feels like November here. As I type this I can hear the rain 'hammering against the window pane'. I sure there is a poem about that somewhere, but I can't remember it.

    Ahh, just remembered, I think it is called 'A Summer Song', ironically!

    1. haha...well, I didn't have to going out into the street...but sometimes the closest people to you go MIA when you need them.
      It says a lot, actually, especially the repeat offenders.

      Why am I not surprised it's raining there?

  4. Can't wait to hear about your new LR. I may be pairing down soon. Congrats on your Etsy shop! If it doesn't cool off here soon, I'm moving in with you. Unless y'all start sweltering again....and then I'll just stay at home. I mean what would be the point. Lol!!

    1. You could come for a vaca....and run back home if it gets hot. haha...or bike back home sounds more like you. lol...

    2. Well heck yeah...why didn't I think of that!

      Delete
    3. The thing is, you could really do it!

      Delete
    4. Haha! I looked it up...it would take 2 days of constant pedaling. I'm going to be much closer in October. Going to Louisville, KY. Now that's probably doable.

      Delete
    5. Yes, Louisville is much more realistic!

  5. Congrats on the Etsy shop - one of my favourite places as you know!
    Pretty roses - pink and lavender is such a pretty combination.
    Thinking of you and Nugget...
    I know what you mean about fairweather friends. Sigh. I guess it makes us appreciate the true ones even more.

  9. Congratulations on your "likes" in the store and on FB. Great that they happened at the same time.
    Think I will have to check out Overstock for a chest I am looking for my entryway.
    Love, love, love those gorgeous roses. I really like just about any color of roses more than I do red.
