I have boys. I've been trying to train them to be thoughtful spouses and remember special occasions with small gestures of "APPROPRIATE" GIFTS. When they were little they'd buy me a toy they really wanted, and I always accepted gracefully, or maybe not so gracefully, explaining that their choice while I would not be playing with it, made me happy because I would be happy that they would be happy playing with it and their happiness was a gift for me. However, and this is a big HOWEVER they need to think of what would make the gift recipient happy or would be something they would like. FINALLY!
This year I actually got a bouquet of flowers I LIKE. and a favorite author. MAYBE THEY ARE FINALLY LISTENING.
So Sunday Salon finds me delighted that I can download photos again. No idea what was up with that. I'm doing the usual house stuff, and keeping positive thoughts and prayers for my sister, who is undergoing some serious stuff. My guys are off at their jobs, and I'm home alone for a few hours. I've just picked up my library book Peaches for Monsieur le Cure, Joanne Harris. Not sure any reading will get done today, I've taken apart my sewing room, trying hard to get rid of as many particle board pieces as possible. Hate that stuff. The only thing I may not be able to part with are book cases. What to do about that, don't know. I have grand plans, but... I can't seem to motivate myself, my mind is in the waiting room of that hospital, where my sister is. My son put on Mad Men, love that show, can't help but think of Miss Stevenson, my shorthand teacher, when I see Joan. I keep wanting to sing "you've come a long way baby" So when you watch Mad Men you tend to "see" commercials. I love the latest one for the mattresses with the two little girls that live with a bear. . Because you really can't tell a bear anything. Unplanned week at the moment, hopefully some reading, other than that... Enjoy your week.
