From the archives

I have been having the best time going through my photographs.
After all the cold weather, these really appeal to me.  I hope you enjoy them, too.

Are you anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring and warmer weather?

I am still working on Lorelei's dress.  I had planned to finish it today but instead we ran some errands, and went to Terre Haute.  I did not work on it till later in the evening.  I am thinking it is going to be too big for her.  So kind of disappointed that way.  Maybe I will be wrong.

I have not did any more de-cluttering to speak of.  Oh, have thrown/donated an item here and there.  I would like to get started back at that.  I think I will feel a lot more like doing that when the weather gets better, or spring arrives. 

From a 2008 roadtrip....

I was looking for a photo to include in this post and came across this one from September of 2008.  I did not remember this bright red place....and cannot believe that I forgot it.  Do you see that smiley face?
I did start on Lorelei's dress today.  Believe it or not, I marked every seamline....I have not marked a seamline in years.  In fact, I think the only time I ever marked the seamlines was when I had to make dresses in Home Ec and only then because the teacher made me/all students.

I am trying to not rush and enjoy the process.  But it is hard not to just whip through it as fast as I can.

The other night I was sitting here...I don't recall what we had been talking about or what was on TV and partial line from a song crossed my mind...'a hundred years too late....'  I was pretty sure of the number 100 but not positive...but the 'years too late' part I was positive of.  I kept asking Roger, do you remember a song talking about being born a hundred years too late...he didn't.   I tried to relax and just could not think of it.

I thought and thought the next day and almost thought of it several times...I told Roger it was not some off the wall song only I would like...I was sure he liked it, too.  I finally thought to go to one of a song lyrics site and had to go through several pages to get to it...I was wrong about it being 100 yrs....it was 200 yrs.  Does any of you know what song I am talking about without looking it up?
