Share the Joy: Field Trip


Fun day today, with a multifaceted field trip.
On the down side, I brought neither camera nor phone,
so I'll have to wing it for illustrations this time.

First, my daughter and I browsed a couple of antique stores
and then bought some truffles at the candy store.

Her girls had a half day of school due to conferences,
so  we met the school bus
and headed off to Port Gamble,
an historic town from the 1850s or so.
After a yummy, late lunch and a short sweep
 through the gift shop.



Serenity found some buffalo jerky

and Jonna


found a bottle of fizzy, peach flavored soda.

Share the Joy: Cold, Tired, and Dateless



It may not sound like much to celebrate,
but I'm happy to have learned that my thyroid
has gone seriously sideways
and that's why I'm always cold and tired.
Remedy: upping my dosage of thyroid meds.
It's the old thing about lighting a candle. . . . 

Let's see.
What else?

I took a date to see a couple of exhibits at Tacoma Art Museum.
One was the Camille Patha show
and the other, an Agnes Martin show. 

"Art Groupies at the Opening" - created on Polyvore.com/merimagic
When you're an art lover, it's always telling
to have an art date.

What did I learn? He likes bright colors
and couldn't figure out how to pronounce Agnes.
He's willing to try something new,
but
He drives like an elderly man
(he turned the wrong way on a one-way street,
even though it was posted:
WRONG WAY - DO NOT ENTER
and doesn't follow oral directions worth spit either.


(Another one bites the dust.)
Did I mention I enJOY being alone with my own company?

So much joy to savor and share. . . .

and becomes every so much more glorious
as she goes along.


I've vowed to play more on Polyvore
because it tunes up my soul. . . .

Share the Joy: Crystal Balls




Oh yeah - 


it smells like spring and now that the bronchitis coughing frenzy
seems to have subsided,
I'm feeling a strong urge to play.

I've had to temper that joyful urge just a little bit
in order to get the tax info ready for the CPA
and to interview 8 potential real estate agents/brokers.
(Yes, after 6 months with no offers on my house,
I broke up with my agent. I adore her personally, but
it was time for a new set of eyes on the sale). 



So  I'm trying to gaze into the future to ascertain
who will get the best result for me
and imagining my joy at transferring my much-loved home
to its next owner.
