So., I will start with this....
I can't get organized lately. Just piddling around, starting one thing, then laying it aside and looking for something else. Do you suppose it's because I know what I should be doing.... Spring cleaning.... and that is my way of putting it off?
It's not that I am getting lazy. No, no. But, just think of all the times I have cleaned and cooked and shopped over the years. And, it's still to do!! What do they say.. a man's work is from sun to sun, a woman's work is never done.
At this juncture of my life I just want to play!!
I have been a lifelong scrapbooker. When I was young my scrapbook pages were pasted with newspaper clippings, ticket stubs, even paper placemats from establishments of the eating persuasion.
I dragged out one of my two remaining scrapbooks last night. Page after page of so little importance, just junk, But, occassionally I'd find a gem.. Like this....
A newspaper article from when my husband and I (along with our eldest daughter and her family) went to New York to help Lady Liberty celebrate her 100th birthday! We hooked up with our youngest daughter and her boyfriend (now her husband) and did the town.
We went to South Street Seaport and caught a sightseeing boat to tour the harbor. There the Statue was, didn't look 100 years old. That's my hubby in the white shirt.
We saw the tall ship parade up the Hudson River and were serenaded by a high school choir singing patriotic songs.
We ate in little cafes and wandered the streets amid the thongs of people who were there for the 4th of July event.Over 20,000 boats jammed the harbor to see the fireworks. Our oldest daughter's family witnessed that from the air as they flew back to Florida.
It was an exciting weekend.
I also found this.
Our invitation to our friend, Guy Hunt's inauguration as Governor of Alabama.
That was an exciting time for us, attending a special church service, seeing the swearing in ceremony and parade that followed, and later going to the ball.
Well, I guess I have bored you to tears so I think I will go start some of that cleaning I have been putting off. But, looking back, remembering those special times in our lives was fun. Do you have special memories that you like to drag from your memory store from time to time to enjoy? I bet you do.
