Glimpse of Yesterday

Glimpse of Yesterday

Monday, May 11, 2009


Good Morning! I hope all of you Moms and future Moms had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday. I certainly did. After spending some time with my mom I came home to freshly baked scones with coffee, a bouquet of beautiful flowers including lilacs and daisies, hand-made beaded earrings, and a fabric purse that I fell in love with weeks ago and wouldn't buy for myself. And the house was sparkling clean. Yes, my two adorables spoiled me rotten and I love them to death! Thank you Geoff and Lace!!

I've been quite busy lately, actually quite exhausted. Work has picked up incredibly due to the relocation of one of our branches and I've gone several days in a row without even sitting down at work. Every part of me has been achy.

My daughter and I watched a movie the other night that made us both think of Rhonda @ Farmhouse Style. It was The Secret Life of Bees with Queen Latifah and Dakota Fanning. It's a great movie (some bad language) and without giving it away for those who haven't seen it, I'll just say that I admit that there have been times in my life where I fantasized about running away. Especially when I have been influenced by watching Murder She Wrote and the Gilmore Girls. During times of feeling overwhelmed or being stressed I've thought of hopping in the car and driving to Cabot Cove or Stars Hollow and living a life of anonymity amongst a community that would love me and accept me with no questions asked. Of course I wouldn't have to work because of the sizable trust fund that was established for me (no, I don't drink) and every day would be warm and sunny and perfect for me to work in my cottage garden. Everywhere I went (which would be within walking or bike riding distance from my cottage) I would be warmly greeted by the business owners and townspeople. Oh yes, and every un-attached single handsome man would flirt with me but be respectful of my independence. Sigh!

Well, the movie made us think of Rhonda because of her recent endeavor of bee keeping, not because she fantasizes of running away!!

Of course, I would never actually run away. My life is blessed beyond measure and I love every bit of it - especially my wonderful family.

I hope you all have a very happy Monday!

  1. Oh that sounds like a fun movie. I can see why bee raising would remind you of Rhonda. Were there any snakes in that movie?

    Your kids sound so great! I'm so glad that they know how to make your day!
