So here's the yellow house I mentioned to you earlier, the one on the way to my supermarket, the one whose yellow is just about right for Hobbit Cottage. See the cool green chair which inspired me in the shadows? Their front yard is all flowers and do be sure to notice that planter with the lips. Cute.
And guess who found another Scholastic book this morning at Salvation Army? (Just what I needed, right?)
I'm wondering how I missed this book--it's perfect! I'm enjoying it much and will probably finish it by this afternoon.
And lastly, this morning I began a brick border around our herb garden in the front yard and wow... what a difference already. I'm continually amazed that it's nearly the middle of September yet I'm still gardening, still working (!) out there. And yes, part of the reason is that we have no large yard to mow like out at the farm. But really? Even during all those 14 years at our other suburb house, the one with the lawn just a tad bigger than a king-size bed--even there--my gardening would peter out by mid-August and I'd begin Autumn longing. And just sitting outside, reading.
This year? Here at Hobbit Cottage? For the first September, ever, I'm still dreaming, digging, planting and creating and I don't want Summer to end.
Curiouser and curiouser.
Heh. The DJ on my retro radio station just told another of his corny jokes: Why did the spider cross the computer keyboard?..... To get to his website.
All day long it's jokes like that. I love it. :)
