Well, if you came here today looking for wisdom and deep thoughts, you might as well just move along. However, if you came for azaleas and grandchildren and eggs, you are definitely in the right spot!
The azaleas are in the picture above. When I got up this morning and went out to get the paper those are what greeted me. Every year Mr. Moon says that he's going to trim those back and every year but one he has not which suits me fine.
I had all sorts of stuff I was going to do today but then Jessie texted and asked if I wanted to go to Costco with them and of course I did. She wanted to take August to a local preschool to check it out first and so I hung my sheets on the line and got myself ready to go. Jessie's thinking that next fall August might benefit from a little school time and I think she's right. Plus, she needs a break. Ironically, stay-at-home moms probably need a break more than anyone else in the world and yet, society seems to think that all they do is eat bonbons and watch TV all day long which is definitely a lie and Jessie doesn't even have a TV. Also, August needs some other-kid time. He's already one of those old-soul children who will correct you if you use a baby word like "covies" for covers. I did that the other night, asking if he wanted me to pull the covies up and he said, "CovERS," which is true, of course, and then he did the same thing the next morning when I asked if he was ready for his "waffies."
It's waffLES, by the way.
In case you're wondering.
Anyway, here I am already wandering and we had a good time at the Costco although August refused to go in the coldy room. I'm surprised he doesn't call it the refrigerated room.
"NO!" he said and so while his mama shopped for berries, he and I checked out the baked goods and we agreed that we would indeed like a cake or some muffins although we did not put any in our cart.
After Costco we went to the Indian buffet which was delicious and then I asked the boy if he wanted to go to the Goodwill bookstore and he threw his hands up in the air and shouted, "YES!!!!"
So we did.
Here's what he and Levon looked like as they were strapped into their car and about to leave.
I believe that child's eyelashes may be visible from outer space.
Then I went to Publix where I got to see Lily which was a treat.
And honestly, that's about all this old woman's done today. I did find three eggs, one of them laid by Miss Camellia who has been very lax in that department lately.
Look where she laid it- right beside the door in a nice, tidy little nest which I suppose she wallowed out in the hay.
And that's about it. I made up the bed with the line-dried sheets and Jack immediately laid down on the comforter covering them up and he'll probably be there when I go to bed in a few hours.
In political news, wouldn't it be ironic and wonderful and terrific and fantastic if a porn star named Stormy Daniels brought down Trump? I sort of love this woman. I read that she's getting a lot of very angry, nasty Tweets and that she responded to one which had used the word "scank" in it by correcting the spelling of the word. My favorite one was the Tweet she got calling her a liar because why would Trump have anything to do with a disease-ridden whore (or something to that effect) when he already had Ivanka, who is, of course his daughter, but then again, we all know that if she wasn't his daughter, he'd be dating her which is so wrong on so many levels that we don't even need to go there.
So I guess we've covered all of the hot topics of the day now and I need to go make my gourmet supper. The guys next door are starting band practice and the church should start up singing any moment.
I get so confused.
Heavy metalish stuff on one side of me and wailing hymns on the other.
It's Friday. Do your Friday thing whether it's heavy or holy. Your choice.
