What a faux pas!

A while back I showed a picture of a book I had just acquired at the library book sale. Remember?



Yikes! I had confused Annie Dillard with Ann Lamott! Glancing through the book I realized my mistake and added this to my pile of books to donate back to the library. Sorry, but I find her very depressing.

I got my second skirt in the mail yesterday! It fits very well. The waistband is very stretchy. I look forward to having two summery skirts to wear next year. Wish I  had ordered them a little earlier.
Now I just need to find some loose, flowy tops to wear with them. With my waistline I won't be wearing tight fitting tops that tuck in! :p


I found a package in my mailbox (along with the skirt package) from my aunt Joanne in Texas. I haven't seen or heard from her in about 15 years. The box contained stacks of old photos many of which I've never seen before. She asked that I share them with my brothers. Lots of treasures!

Well, I'm a little tired today, and computerizing seems to make me even groggier, so I'll make this short. Hope you're all having a great weekend! My son Jordan is competing in The Savage Race in Dallas in about an hour. Mom's praying for safety for him and all of the competitors. I hope they have decent temps and have fun exercising their muscles! :)


Shalom, friends and family!

  2. I checked out the skirts from your link yesterday, which led me to check out more skirts and I ended up adding three to my wish list. :-)

    Hope your son does well in the race.

    Have a nice afternoon and Sunday ~ FlowerLady

    1. So many cute things! I just hope I actually wear my new skirts. I've been such a jeans girl for so many years. But they are cool for summer.

  3. I LOVE that skirt- perfect for looking fantastic and for pulling up round you for changing on the beach! Hope you find perfect tops. I'm shopping for warm, smart things for work - boooo!

  4. What a treasure you received when that box of old photos arrived. Will you be able to figure out who's who? My kids keep telling me to somehow ID all the old Black & Whites that I have tucked away. Winter project?

    1. They were mostly of us kids and my grandparents, so easy to identify. She did include a bunch of pictures of a baby whose last name is Yingling. I have NO idea who he is. Maybe a cousins' child? Otherwise, pretty easy. I just divided up most of them, but will make copies of others so we each have one. :)

  5. Thank you for coming to my blog, and leaving a comment. On my wee blog rant! ,-) I received so many wise words, yours among them. And have come "down off my high horse". -grin-

    I did need to do that post. Because it is a topic, which has been building steam. And steam needs to be let off!!!!! And then, when it is let off, a peace can descend. And personal Wisdom can fill the void. And blogging can be a Joy, again.

    Thank you so much, for leaving your wise words, for me.

    Gentle hugs,
    Tessa

  6. Oh my!!! Just saw Starry, with the red hair and the big white bow! Oh what an adorable little girl.

    We have a red head grand daughter, but when she was young, she was a total tom boy. Total. I'm glad she lived far away, because I am all for little girls looking like little girls. Kept the 2 who lived near, that way!!!

    One of them, I took free day care of. I used to tell her, that my putting a bow in her hair every day, was my "pay" for taking care of her. LOL...

  8. Cute skirt! You should be able to wear them quite a bit since they are long.

    1. Sure hope so! I'm on the lookout for a blouse to go with them. :)

  9. I think a flowy tunic-style shirt would look nice, falling to the hip bone. I like that style, with the vertical slit from the neck line, y'know? Sorry about the book mix up. I've heard of both writers, but never read either.
