I’m always trying to think of something to share on this blog. Here’s a good one:
Today, my husband and I are in a supermarket, headed towards a checkout register. Right before we get there, he finds another register without a line so suddenly changes his direction. He reaches out to grab my arm to bring me along, but the arm he grabs (gently, of course) doesn’t belong to me—it belongs to another woman. It doesn’t take long for him to realize what he’s done.
“Oh, I’m sorry. I thought you were my wife,” he says (as he quickly lets go of her arm).
“I’m someone’s wife, but not yours. And don’t do that again,” she replies.
It was all taken well, and we got a chuckle out of it, but I’m sure at first it scared the living daylights out of her.
It’s good to laugh at the funny things we do without meaning to. I can’t count how many times I’ve been in a store talking to my husband only to look over and realize I’m holding a one-way conversation with a perfect stranger. (And the things I tend to talk about—what they must’ve thought!)
Oh well…gotta keep laughing. After all, we’re only human. :-)
I think it’s time for a Kindle Countdown!
From October 1st through October 7th, download the Kindle version of in Leather Chaps, the newest book in the Jean and Rosie series, for only 99 cents.
When life gets tough, women get TOUGHER . . .
This next adventure does include motorcycles and leather chaps and it’s only one CLICK away.
Autumn officially begins tomorrow. Yay! There’s no place I’d rather be than in New Hampshire this time of year!
Leaves are just starting to turn colors, so here are some photos taken from previous years to show you how beautiful it will soon be around here.
If you don’t already live here or haven’t been in this area during the fall season, you might want to put Autumn in New England on your bucket list. It’s definitely worth the trip!
Check out Yankee’s Live Fall Foliage Map link below. It’s a great site to track the foliage in New England over the next few weeks.
Delicious lobster salad.
Pistachio ice cream (my favorite flavor) for dessert.
And, best of all, two great friends to enjoy it all with. (Thank you, Pam and Lori!)
It was the perfect lunch at the Town Docks in Meredith (NH) today!
Wishing you all a safe and WONDERFUL Labor Day weekend.
Yeah, there’s bad stuff in the world. It’s happening all the time.
There’s sadness and loss, tragedies and senseless acts of violence.
But, there are also so many wonderful things to discover and be thankful for every day.
Let me share what was wonderful for me yesterday.
There was this beautiful place where I enjoyed my lunch.
The gift of this homegrown tomato from a co-worker.
And the discovery of this memorial for someone I didn’t know well, but he worked at the same place as my sister did for many years. I remember he had such a beautiful smile.
When I saw this memorial, I was reminded of that smile.
Another wonderful, wonderful thing.
See the wonderful in every day.
Expect to find it and you will.
