I saw this rainbow over the valley this morning, & thought it would be nice if it was a sign of better things to come.
But also thought of Dorothy.....
And the expectation that a rainbow will bring something good??
We are having more rain, wind & gah weather.
No one has been to see about the carpet, the roof or any other problems.
I feel the house is not a pleasant place to be.
The little grave out the back door filled with water, & became the little pool!
And Hitler & Eva, (as he calls me now, since I told him about my post) went shopping for some luxuries like bread!
I also had an outing with our lovely daughter to shop for batting & backing for the SIL's quilt.
And there was a sale on all sorts of things. And we got a dinner set each with new square plates for $10, reduced from $60, so we thought it must have been meant to be.
For anyone wanting to set up house they had dinner sets for $7- 36 pieces, including knives forks spoons! Amazing. It just so happens GOM had coveted a square dinner service - so now he has one!
Why does a little voice in my head keep saying "The food will get cold on those plates awfully quickly!" Which wont really worry me, as I eat & drink only tepid things anyway... I dislike hot.
In other thoughts for the day, I have been reading of 'favourite things'.. Thinking about favourite foods. Favourite music. Favourite authors.
When it comes to movies, I think my all time favourite scene is from the Movie Terms of Endearment.
It is the scene where Shirley McLaine is driving a drunk Jack Nicholson in the surf, in an open top car, & he is standing on the seat, & she cant really drive. For some reason that scene says things to me, that almost make me want to laugh and cry, at the same time.
And the most harrowing scene is where Shirley is screaming for pain relief for her daughter, who is dying of cancer. I feel that scene in the pit of my stomach, every time I see it. It never fails to move me.
Well, away to fun things like the ever present washing to dry. And the food to prepare. And the rain to listen to.
