Hello and Happy Monday!
This is Gwendolyn, the faerie who dwells beneath the eaves of Brambleberry Cottage, who is, right this very minute blowing many happy thoughts your way. Many happy thoughts MY way since Monday is my least favorite day of the week. Is it yours too? My favorite day is Friday. It's my quiet day. My day to wake up and spend a leisurely morning curled up on the couch with my puppies, a fresh cup of coffee and my favorite book...the Bible.
But today is Monday and so the week begins...already there is drama, but we won't go there...LOL!
Let's talk about Friday instead! Much of my Friday and Saturday were spent merrily puttering about my cottage while rearranging the furniture, which I might add is not an easy job! Somehow I've managed to squeeze 18 pieces of furniture into the small rectangular space with piece layered upon piece. Let me tell ya, this girl does not need one more piece of furniture!!
After several months of living in disarray I'm finally able to see the tops of tables again and oh how I love my pretty shiny oak wood! My vignettes, that's another story. I've never been very good at arranging my accessories...do you have any ideas?
I had a brilliant idea about 5 years ago to buy a weence little cabin in Big Bear so I started collecting furniture to make my cabin nice and cozy. Once I realized hubby and I could barely maintain Brambleberry Cottage I threw that idea out the window REAL FAST, but I still have the furniture. Talk about putting the cart before the horse!!
And since we're talking about carts, Sunday hubby and I stopped at a Target in Huntington Beach that was 2 full stories!!! I had no idea that such a thing existed. We were both baffled to find an escalator in the center of the store, but what do you do with your cart full of goodies? Why, you put them on their own escalator so they can travel between floors with you. I'm sure many of you have seen one of these before, but it was a first for me. Do you think I need to get out more often? Yeah, me too!! Do I live in a bubble or what?!
Sunday afternoon was spent under the shade of a huge tree with a cool ocean breeze. It was so lovely! We were celebrating my little nephews birthday. He just turned three...he's such a cutie!
Hey look! Monday is almost over. At least the work day is and I'm finally back home. Now that wasn't so bad was it? It must have been the happy thoughts Gwendolyn was blowing in my direction...and hopefully yours!!
Oh! I have to tell you, my darling friend Deb of Midlife Poet has a son PFC Ryan, who's serving in the Army. He's home for a week so it would be nice if everyone popped over to her blog to say "Hi" and "Thank YOU!" It's because of brave young men like PFC Ryan and his buddies that make it possible for those of us in the US to sleep peacefully at night.
And I hope yours is a lovely one :-).
Until next time...
