Watching a PBS broadcast of the 1956 B&W Lawrence Welk Mother's day show. I was in the 8th grade when it originally aired and my parents had purchased their firs TV about 3 years prior.

wow. it was about 1951 when my family bought our first tv. and our beautiful mint green used studebaker sedan that looked like a spacecraft with its four sectioned windows wrapped around the back. at the time i had no idea how lucky we were to have these remarkable things--just assumed all americans lived this way on under forty dollars a week....

I'm having a drink I shouldn't, thinking about what to do tomorrow. A few friends are coming over, and it isn't much of a big deal. Sent (slightly tipsy) husband off to bed an hour ago and am heading that way myself.

Coming home from an exhausting weekend. The auction is over for the estate sale. It took alot of teamwork to pull it off. It involved alot of moving boxes & furniture for 2 very full days. We decided we will need to postpone mother's day until next weekend. It's so cute, the 3 kids across the street came over & gave me a bright red carnation. It's a good thing to keep dh sleeping.

Welcome home, Simonbaker! How exhausting, hope you can get some rest. These life events can be so trying.

I've been planting like a mad fiend all yesterday and today, and am finally down to 2 Magilla Perillas, a couple purple spready things, some herbs, a bunch of seeds, and one last New Guinea impatiens. Got the peppers, toms, petunias, et al in the pots and beds. I was on a roll, so let DH go to the grad party without me. I'm covered in potting soil.

Looking forward to Survivor Finale! (and a shower).

Finally! A day completely off with no Dr appointments (for ANYone that it affects me), & no obligations to anyone. I think I will silence my phone a while. The possibilities for today are endless. Among one will be baking. See 'what are you baking today'. Lots of cleaning & rearranging also.
