I am so glad it's the weekend! I sure would love to be at the beach :D but...I am lucky if my hubby takes one day off a week! If he does it's on Sunday, and if he's off...he is still working on something! I'm lucky that it's usually something for us, me, or our home :D
I have several projects in the works, but no big reveal today. I know...sad face :(
BUT...I have a little story, and a picture of bedding set number 1... which is actually my 2nd fave but came first in the mail....and this is why.
The girls and I went out and about town yesterday, our main motive for being about town was a trip to MyMochi. I LOVE this place! It's an amazing frozen yogurt shop. Forget that a side trip for groceries was in order, too. I know that's the part I'd like to forget every week. Hahahha!
Right before we got home, Lace mentions that even though she has said she has resigned/consigned herself to being childless, she really would love to have a baby. (awwww! ssshhhhhhh I did not tell you that!) But it ties in later on in the story!
Okay...anyway...we get back and there is a huge box on the bench by the pond. COOL!
Now, remember I ordered 2 bedding sets???
The "mail box mail" was on the table (Kyle brought it in) and there was another smaller (much smaller) package. It's mine? It's not one of the Etsy orders I was expecting? Hmmmm.
So I open this smallish package, and I pull out my other bedding set shipping label...
and a little tiny Baby Boy outfit!!! OMG! WTHeck?
I get to keep the outfit??? I don't know anyone having a baby boy...or a baby at all for that matter.
AT LEAST I DON'T THINK SO.
Coincidence? Hmmm. I would love to have another grandson! It has been over 8 years since we had a baby in the family! My grandson is 8, and my granddaughter is 12!
I will not get my hopes up, though!
I just had to edit this in...it was worth sharing...and I had to show the bedding set. I guess my choice #1 bedding set will come on Monday, and I will get better pics when the lighting is better (and my room has things on the walls?)
I have more to share with you, but I don't want a never ending post!
I'll leave you with my intended post for today.
A poem I wrote a couple of weeks ago...
Shells, Sand and Sea
I found a seashell today
it was real like Earth and clay
I was interested in what I found
this shell had stories to expound
about adventures in the deep
amazing tales, now mine to keep
There's more to a shell than meets the eye
some have a critter living inside
these are the shells we do not keep
for they belong in the deep
Down below the dark dark sea
this is where a shell may be
or upon the sandy shore
I will look forevermore
They delight and amaze
all matter of folk
from young to old
the joy they evoke
So very many kinds of shells
all of their names
I cannot tell
so much knowledge
I cannot know
hundreds of thousands
of species I'm told
Some I will never see
hold touch or feel the glee
of finding a rare and beautiful shell
but they are all special to me as well
Just a piece or perfectly whole
pretty shells I love to hold
finding them makes me smile
walking the shore mile by mile
The salty sea and sandy shore
is a cure to me of this I'm sure
for whatever thing is ailing me
just give me sand, shells and sea
You know I am fascinated by shells, sand, and the sea.
But did you know I really think it has contributed to my healing, and well being?
But that is a very long story...
Have a Happy Fall Saturday!
