Day with Dixie~~~PART I


So some of you sweeties may have noticed (well I hope you have), I have been away from blogland. But only physically...as you all are always on my mind. Two more ukulele shows (today and tomorrow) and it is done for the year. Then I can get to decorating, baking, and enjoying the celebration centered around my SAVIOR'S birth.

Yesterday I spent with girlfriends, Terry and Dixie. For a little more story check with Dixie. One of our stops was at a local book store and being the $1 girl that I am, zipped right past all the new books and headed straight for the dungeon. We laughed while reading titles and talking about the different types of material that call to us. Here are three that I just had to have.

A poetry book (.60) for the mathematicians in my life and two for me. (1.50)
'What is it that draws us to the heart motif?'
Mary Emmerling
'Distance only lends enchantment,
Through the ocean waves divide;
Absence makes the heart grow fonder,
Longing to be near your side.
ARTHUR GILLESPIE



And this last one if from the Pie Place where we stopped to indulge our sweet tooth. Upon leaving the girls asked if I had been to the restroom. 'No, why?' Oh, it is your kind of place. So after opening the door they were pointing to, which was to the kitchen...No, no not that one they sang out together! Back a narrow hall between freezers was a little hole in the wall. A corner hutch with toys and 'off the wall' stuff--I loved it! After commenting on the little guy tucked into the brick wall they didn't know what I was talking about. SO I drug them back to see.

YEP! just my kind of stuff...weird ;-)
