I'm a cowgrandma now. Do you like my boots? I looked at them for over a year before I finally decided to buy them. I'm not one bit sorry because they are SO comfortable. I asked some of my students if they liked them. They said, "No." Oh well! I do!
Well, if I had a horse like Gumbo Lily, I'd ride off into the distance, under these gorgeous skies. Colorado weather does not disappoint. This morning, I hurried outside to "catch the pink" because it disappears so quickly.
Birdie and I went to the fabric store on Sunday. I know you like to look at fabric, too. My mother says, "I REALLY like to sew when I'm at the fabric store but "not so much" when I get home with my purchases." I didn't buy fabric, just ribbons.
After the fabric store, we walked over to the used book store. It is full, top to bottom, with sweet smelling old books! Birdie was on the look out for pink princess books. We found quite a few.
I would LOVE to own a big messy book store like this one. See the "N"? That's the organizational system, I guess. There are two real ratty rockers sitting outside, but that's it in the way of decor. Sitting around reading all day surrounded by stacks and stacks of words . . . bliss!
I am waiting for a whole bunch of Gladys Taber books to arrive via the postman. Have you heard of her? She wrote about her country home. I'm going to read her books while I take care of Birdie and Bug. Kelli is going into the hospital to have Millie on Friday. Yippee!
I must go downstairs and put clean sheets on the guest bed, scrub the bathroom, and vacuum. Our friend Deo from Uganda is coming tomorrow night. FUN!
The kids at school are so chatty. I must say, "Please stop talking" one million times a day. Sigh. I'm going to quit talking now. Bye bye!
