THIS AND THAT--

Here is a photo of my friend Ruth on her 94th Birthday--
yesterday--
Ruth is the young looking one in the middle!!!
She is the first one I made friends with here in this new senior place in Florida--
a year ago--can you believe that --
it has been a whole year (actually 12 1/2 months!!) since I moved here from NY state--
it went by really fast let me tell you--
and I think the thing that I loved watching from the first day here--
was-- and is the clouds--how they can stack up and up--
there is sooo many different kind of clouds here--
look at this one--it looks like a space ship is going to land!!!

On Tuesday one of the residents here--Gwynne and I went to the Zoo--
it was the last day for the $3--entry fee--usually it is $18--each!!
we were sure it would be uncrowded and a good time to go--
but boy where we wrong!!
I think the whole county kept their kids out of school and took them there--
we did stay for about 2 hours--but then just had to leave--was too crowded to get around--
and talk about strollers--oh my goodness!!
But I did get some good photos of animals that I did not get in the spring when I went--
so it was a successful day--
The Meekats where out this time and they love playing and digging in the red dirt--
they dig huge holes and go in them--for a minute--then crawl back out and start another one--
just like us quilters--we start a quilt and then go on and start another one!!

Gwynne made a couple stops on the way home and one place is called Tuesdays Mornings--
and it reminds me of a Woolworth's years ago--a bit of this and than--
here is my treasures from there-
this is a large package of cardstock cards--of all colors for only $1.99
and the set of the 4 larger stamps was $3.99 and the Christmas stamps was only $1.99--
So I had a adventure this week--

Did you do something different or special this week????
love and laughter, di

  1. My gosh - has it really been a whole year? I remember you getting rid of rubber stamps, so I'm glad to see you're back in the business. I took a couple of yours, and they've been well used! I'm sorry your zoo adventure was short-lived, but a short adventure is better than no adventure. I had a brainstorm for your Christmas gift today......
