Only two more weeks far away from home. I’m counting the days. I’ve been here 5 weeks and that is more than enough. The word ‘homesick’ isn’t really adequate. Miss the husband, miss the dogs and miss beauty like this:
Since my husband took this with his cell phone, the color is off, but you get the picture. I’ve missed the peony bloom for the 4th year in a row. I do believe I mean it when I say, ‘No More.’ I said that last year, I know, but all this far away coaching is losing its appeal.
You know that I try to buy something vintage as a remembrance of time on the road. I haven’t had all that much time to explore here and the price of gas has kept me closer to the condo. I did take a little trip to a neighboring town about a week ago and found this:
I’ve always wanted one of these wicker sewing baskets. The ones I’ve found in the past were battered or missing the spindles or the decal was worn away or the cord was missing. This one is in excellent condition. And it’s pink!
Another sweet decal on the inside. And see? The spindles/thread holders are just perfect.
Isn’t it pretty? The decal is so very sweet. I’ll use this for storage of some kind. Right now I’m leaning toward using it to hold all the love letters my husband sent me when he was wooing me. Isn’t ‘woo’ a wonderful word? I think we should all resolve to use it more often.
Today is my day off. Tomorrow and Wednesday are Tech/Dress Rehearsals with our first Preview performance on Friday. I teach on Tuesday and Friday. It will be a busy week and that’s a good thing.
If you haven’t read it already, I posted a book review and I’m giving away a copy of the book. Just scroll down to the previous post.
