August 25th., 2007

Parents left early yesterday so spent most of the morning getting the house back to normal. Got the bed clothes washed and out on the line. It was a lovely day with a light breeze. The clothes smelled wonderful when I brought them in, just had to shove my face into it all and take a deep breath. You can't beat the smell of clothes that have been dried outside. Especially here where is air is so beautifully fresh and clean.

Heard about a yard sale so we decided to have a look. Very little stuff left. I did buy one of those little, I think they are called Speedo tops, for joggers. Took it out of the bag when I got home and thought, have I gone out of my mind, I must have been in a time warp and thought I was 20 again, lol. Maybe just wishful thinking!

I usually make up Christmas stockings for the family so I've been buying odds and ends lately to fill stockings. Picked up a couple of pairs of earrings, locally made and at a very cheap price. I know, I know, it's a bit early but when I see something small at a good price I figure why not get it now. Everyone seems to enjoy getting a stocking full of little treasures. I do myself.....still a child at heart I guess.

Haven't done much outside lately but did dead head some plants. You can certainly see that fall has begun just by looking at most of the plants. Very chilly early in the mornings. I saw a huge bee on one of the flowers. Biggest one I've seen in a long time. As I was telling a friend, I just wanted to grab his little ears and smush his little face, lol.
