Ernie and Leo took off yesterday morning for the New York Central Museum in Elkhart, Indiana. Owen and I were on our own. We had the loveliest day. We both poked around our computers for a bit and then went outside and worked in the yard. A stunning day. It now appears that I will NOT have to plan a second birthday party for my mulch pile! Afterward Owen went back inside while I sat and enjoyed the sun and read. He'd come and check on me periodically though. Later, as it started to get dark, we curled up in the media room, watched Annie Hall, and ordered Chinese food for delivery. A perfect day and evening with my sweet pea. Everything gets put into perspective at times like that.
The sky was so crisp and the sun so bright that the flowers just glowed, and every so often the tree above us let loose some of its leaves and they would flutter down around us. All we could do was laugh it was so delightful.
One of my favorite patterns. Portland Glass. 1863-1873. Boy do I regret selling some of the pieces I had in this. The water pitcher was stunning. Ah well.
Of course all this delightful time means my house is a dusty mess, but I decided I'm not cleaning up until Ernie finishes painting...hopefully tomorrow. How that for rationalization? Ha! I am VERY good at rationalization....for better or worse, huh?
As much as I try not to I couldn't help sharing some political posts on Facebook. I don't know why I do it...won't change anyone's mind but on days like yesterday....geez... I am just astounded that this Trump video is a surprise to anyone. Really? THIS is your line in the sand? We all knew perfectly well he spoke like this and thought like this. All those other horrendous things he said were o.k. though? WTF? And Paul Ryan's response almost made me choke on my tea.... "women should be championed and revered..." REALLY? I mean I KNOW I'M the one that reads all those Regency romance novels, but jesus fucking christ (sorry Debbie). I was just astounded. I'll have to check with Ernie and see how his reverence levels are doing. Oh, and all the men that say they were offended by this because they have daughters. WTF AGAIN? It's o.k. if it's not YOUR daughter or wife or sister. Because you see women as YOURS?
Good Lord A Mama, as Owen used to say.
Good Lord A Mama.
