I viewed the movie no less than 7 times
my grandmother took me to the theatre often
as my grandfather was a projectionist at the Pantages Theatre here in town for years.....
he earned his gold watch.
brown paper package tied up with string...
a package of another kind
I drove up island awhile back and stopped for coffee in Cobble Hill
at the Drumroaster cafe
it turned out to be the best cup of coffee I have had in recent memory.
these little sweets came in a small brown box nestled on top of spun cotton
deep red garnets
I will wear them when I want to feel feminine.....
I like taking the extra time to get dressed up to go out
I don't always do this and I should
because I have been "caught" in my Yoga pants and sneakers!
It does seem to me that when I am thoughtlessly dressed I invariably meet up with a well turned out woman friend
who politely ignores my attire
she graciously excuses me when I stammer
"I have just run out of a key ingredient for something that is simmering on the stove and I really must run."
I make a hasty retreat and vow under my breath, that I will not leave the house in the future
unless I look decent...
(until next time that I must dash out unexpectedly!)
Sunny Yellow Tulips
fresh flowers in the Bungalow are a staple
considered not to be an extravagance.
In spring and summer the Bungalow garden has plenty of fresh flowers free for the picking.
Roses are plentiful....
Bright blooms are so cheery
I buy them by the bunch in winter.
My "go to" flower shop is Harry's.
they carry a wide variety of greenery
as well as the mainstream blooms...
I do so love the frothy petals on peonies.
Florist roses are not highly scented like the David Austin Roses
that I tend and grow in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
I'll be perusing and choosing some flowers today
after taking Mother and darling daughter out to tea.
"Take care of luxuries and the necessities will take care of themselves."
Have a fabulous weekend
and treat yourself and others kindly.
