Shoppin' Queen...

Chandelier that will be at Zimmermann's in Mora-
part of a vignette I'm creating!!!
I have an affinity for making friends with store keepers and UPS guys.  In other words, I love to shop – in person and/or online.

So it was no surprise when we got home from the lake that there were packages waiting for me – on the porch and in the mailman’s trunk.  Wa hoo!!!

I received a Dashiki, rolls of burlap, moss balls, wooden tags, a book, a chandelier and a great bunch of lavender!

Some of the supplies I received!
There is still lots to put away from our trip to the lake but tomorrow is another day.  Today I did a little gardening, put the grape jelly out for the Orioles (they are still around!), and made a nice steak dinner for us.

Usually our dog, Honey, made the trip to the lake with us.  But not this time.  Honey is still a part of our every day lives - we think of her and how she ate her blanket the time we boarded her when we went to the North Shore, how she chased that fox out of the yard and tonight I will have popcorn by myself - she used to have a bowl with me.  We miss her when the dog food commercials are on TV.  I suspect we always will along with Midnight, Shadow and Gorby.

Norma Jean, our cat, fills part of that void...she was so lonesome for me while we were gone that she won't stray too far from me.  She gets on her back legs and touches my arm as I type and lays on my leg when I'm sitting on the sofa.  She misses Honey too!  No one loves us as unconditionally as our pets love us...

Take care,
