sunday notebook


Outside my window … 
cicada detritus
I am thinking … 
that every day presents an opportunity to redefine myself
I am thankful for …
the many wishes for a happy birthday with which I was showered on facebook. That made my day!
I am hoping …
that suitable weather emerges soon in order for the grass to get cut. 
On my mind …
the poor and bedraggled in Louisiana, watching their lives sink before their very eyes
Noticing that …
Dust and dog hair don't vanish of their own accord, no matter how many times they wave to a certain spouse
A few plans for the week …
scanning more photographs from the early Melrose albums (1910's and 1920's); taxes; figuring out what I want to do with the rest of my life
From the kitchen … 
so many condiments taking up space in the fridge begs for some creative cooking or baking. Stay tuned!
Around the house …
the usual, sad to say
One of my favorite things …
birthdays! (it was my birthday on Friday, but with blogger being down I had no way to tell you!)
A picture I am sharing …
One of the pictures scanned this past week: my great-grandmother is in the hat (and I think this is a rare picture of her smiling!), my grandmother is third from left.  1919, I think.

What an intriguing photo. I caught myself imagining the events surrounding the photo and the need of "Cold Drinks." Perhaps it was a bazaar day, or a very hot summer afternoon, or a group of tourists visiting the town.

Love the photo! And, I think I wished you a happy b-day on Facebook, but in case I missed it - happy birthday - you know can continue to celebrate it!

What a great picture! I should scan in some of the old pictures I have someday...
