|The signal that fall and winter are officially on the horizon.|
Always very exciting, more wood was delivered yesterday and neatly stacked under its little roof extension near the garage. We still have lots of logs from an ancient cherry tree that My-Reason-For-Living-In-France convinced me was half dead and would fall on the house, presenting in his argument for the execution the notion that it would make me much happier in its reinvention as firewood.
We all know how much Americans love reinvention.
He coerced me into admitting that it never really delivered on the promised cherries. True. I pointed out that it heralded in spring, his favorite season. He countered, the blossoms last only three weeks. The rest of the story is piled under the latest log delivery.
I have a thing about trees and books. It makes me sad to part with them. I have always given books to someone, I simply cannot toss a book — even ones that may deserve that fate.
Now, getting down to business: Next Week. . .
1.) A surprise.
2.) The second in the series of season-less dressing wherein the brilliant Janice of The Vivienne Files takes a dress and shows us how to wear it non-stop (well, maybe not every day) for 12 months. You’ll love it.
3.) The third installment of what my daughter bought in France to take home to the States. This week: clothes and accessories.
Weather report: Non-stop rain and drizzle and water saturated air and then more rain. Temperatures, strangely warm-ish.
|Buyer Beware: Under no circumstances was this mirror constructed to be flipped to magnifying for women of a certain age. Trust me on this.|
Since today’s post, such as it is, does not offer any “value-added” material as Marsi would say, I thought I would throw in a beauty tip. It’s one I’ve known since I was about 35 I would say, but had forgotten over the years. If you own one of those two-sided makeup mirrors: one side normal, the other magnified — do not, repeat do not use the magnifying side.
Mine was inadvertently flipped and my day was inadvertently ruined.
