This morning I am thinking Spring because tomorrow the temperature is going up to 70! I am going to go to my mother’s house and do some yard work and powerwash the porch. It’s time to work on the outside of the house, drugstore and I want to take advantage of the warm weather. That might not sound like much fun, mind but actually, medicine I am looking forward to it. The house is really starting to shape up, but we still have a lot to do.
I bought a few new things for Carole’s Country Store. I love this old wire carrier, filled with old clay pots. They might be English, but I can’t say for sure. I think it would look sweet on a porch or patio. You could use little shot glasses inside the pots to hold water, and fill them with flowers. I loved these old gardening tools too. The yellow ones. They’re from the 1940′s, and they are also for sale in my store.
I remember after my mother moved into assisted living. I was cleaning out her house. I found some of her old gardening tools. These are NOT FOR SALE. For me it was liking finding hidden treasure. I look at them and think of her, a young married woman, in her 20′s, digging in her flower garden. It’s the strangest feeling. She loved gardening and flowers, especially roses.
For me, they are priceless. I also have her ironing board. The only one she ever owned. Can you imagine. The old wooden kind, also from the 40′s. I remember hearing the sqeek it made, when she ironed on it. I want to reccomend a movie. Occasionally, on weekends, Bill and I will watch a movie together. This weekend we watched the movie called Atonement. We made our popcorn, poured our Pepsi, and settled down in anticipation of a good movie. Now I want to make it clear, my honey is a manly man, and he loved this movie. At first he thought it might be a chick flick. He wanted to bail out on it after the first 15 minutes, but he hung in there. We both LOVED it! If you can, get it. It’s a beautiful movie, filmed in England. I have also seen “No Country For Old Men”. This is the movie that got an academy award for best picture. What!? I didn’t like it at all, and to think that it beat “Atonement”, I don’t get it. If you get it, let me know how you like it. I hope you do.
