This purse loads with credit cards.
In today's political climate, it is probably a bit politically incorrect to wear very many places. Which makes it charming. I dream of a day when talking heads lighten up. Life is serious: but it deserves to be enjoyed, too.
Life is not low maintenance. Embrace it. Or clean it. The past couple days I have been wrestling with getting the patio back into the state of "country sophisticate" enjoyability. Heavy patio furniture lifting was followed by bronco-busting in a commercial floor finisher. I wrapped up before big planes of glass became sideline casualties. The wet-look sealer makes the floor shine like in the White House.
In 2011, we will watch less TV. Who wants their headstone to read "She watched lots of TV"
Our "Run to the Borders" (bookstore) does not have to be saved for weekends. Neither do Italian dinners.
Last night's menu:
- Marinated artichoke hearts
- Eggplant Parmesan
- Pumpkin ravioli with browned butter sauce with crisped sage leaves
- Curled spaghetti lavishing under Oregon Sue's Marinara sauce
- Mini Meatballs and Italian sausage
When we arrived at our local Border's, the evidence suggested the weekend was very busy
When you run into a section like this at a bookstore, do you straighten up?
Being this was a date with my husband, I stopped short of alphabetizing by author. However horizontal and vertical and vertical planes were restored before I left the store with 2 new books.
Perhaps this oddity is a function of becoming a writer. I see a shelf with contents overturned and I read it as an though an anthropologist surrounded by ancient rubble. The book collection is robbed of its dignity by nomadic people devoid of the awe of appreciation.
Writers, photographer, editors- each book on the shelf are the children of every person involved in the production of a book. Corporations took a chance investing in their gestation. When the book is born, a retailer risks what happens when the stacks are explored.
Fact. The public rudely trashed the place. Shouldn't it be a civic duty to help correct? If we believe in personal responsibility- disheveled books ought to be treated like beach litter. Not just the obligation of staff.
Resolve to not be a part of the problem. Make it a habit to be part of the solution.
