Seven Sunday Recalls Because It is All I Have
1. Hubby and I were watching the "Barefoot Contessa" which is a cooking show in the United States. I have not decided that I watch her because of her good and delicious recipes or because the intermission is shots of her lovely Connecticut gardens accompanied by some nice jazz. Anyway this week it was boned leg of lamb. She lifts out the largest cut of meat I have ever seen and I just had to comment, "That is not a leg of lamb...that is a leg of sheep!"
2. During a grocery shopping trip we noticed a grenade decal on the back window of an automobile. Hubby commented on it. I explained that it was probably seen by some folks as a tool just as we would look at a decal of a garden spade. We do live in a military area and that driver may have just returned from Afghanistan where weapons are common and a daily part of life.
3, I have owned my new car about 5 days and driven only once more since getting it home. I really like it, but I am not in love with new cars and do not create errands to run just to get it out of the garage.
4, I learned that new cars have thick sun visors. My garage door opener and deer gate opener do not clip over the visor very well. As a matter of fact, my garage door opener fell in my lap while making a turn the other day which was an unexpected startle. I have to find an auto store to buy a new visor container.
5. I hate more when I lose a thought than when I lose money! Losing less money and more thoughts these days.
6. I invited two Mormon Bishops for an oyster lunch this past week. One is a very good and old friend, a former Green Beret and parachute jumper now in his early 70's and the kindest most gentle old soul. No, we did not talk politics or religion. It never ceases to catch me up short to find the bravest and most dangerous men are very pure old souls deep inside.
7, I see Halloween and Christmas decorations in the stores everywhere. Both have become such terribly commercial holidays. While I am having fun creating photographic Halloween cards, my favorite holiday is still Thanksgiving which is so often overlooked, but has a message that resonates with me.
(The photo has nothing to do with this post. Just wanted to show how rich people can grandfather in stuff and then totally rebuild it.)
