On the norm my blog is pretty laid back, fun, and quirky... however today I would like to share a PSA with you.
My little background.. I have been friends with a certain someone for close to 11 years, or at least I thought I was.
This weekend I get an e-mail something like this...
"We had a GREAT time at *A*'s bridal shower ( this is her daughter). All her loving friends and family were there" The e-mail goes on listing every one's name and how wonderful the shower was and how they have so much food left over that she is going to picnic with her wonderful family and friends.
To me... if someone was NOT invited to something like this.. you don't send an e-mail out to them. I can understand if you are sending to family who couldn't make it.. but I found this quite rude and felt that I wasn't "good enough" to go even though I have watched this girl grow up for the past 11 or so years. Today I got pictures of the shower. I'll be honest.. I didn't even open them but deleted them.
You can't change people.. right? I won't even try.
My weekend was a GOOD one.. I got a bit accomplished.. Garden in... yard spiffied up... and I went to two yardsales... and I found some treasures!! I love OLD"er" dishes. I'll be honest. I don't really have a place for many more.. or even for the ones I bought.. but there is something about dishes that SCREAM comfort to me! So I had to get these little REALLY inexpensive dishes!!
At the same yardsale I found these ADORABLE old records in PRISTINE condition. I couldn't pass these up. What I'll do with them? I'm not sure but they are in MINT condition!
On a brighter note... LILACS are out and in full bloom.. I have a HUGE bouquet on my table and you can SMELL IT THROUGH MY WHOLE HOUSE!! It's quite heavenly!!
What I have read...
These two books were good.. however... The Solitary Envoy seemed to move "to fast" in the story with not enough description. It seemed like things happened and I didn't GRASP what was happening... it was almost like hearing a punch line before the joke. All in all I will read the sequel to it.
Here is what I'm reading now... this is NOT like the other books I normally read. This is quite a heart wrenching story of a German Woman who Fell in Love with a Jewish man in the height of Hitler's reign. I have not completed it yet but it has sucked me in. I thought I wouldn't like it and would have ended up returning it, but I'm glad I am giving it a chance!
