Rain Rain Go Away
We are almost at a record for number of days of rain. As a drove to work last night after two days off, I saw that the DEEP ditches at the road side were full. The water level was right level with the fields. Much more of this and the roads will flood.
So here I am posting some sunshine. This is a pic of Spanish Banks, a beach in Vancouver. I just needed to be reminded of what blue skies looked like! AHHHH!!! It will happen soon enough. I just hope we don't float away before that happens.
This is my China Collection. Part of it. Its called Acapulco. Im not much of one for fancy things in the tableware dept. But I love this casual art deco style. It was discontinued in the 70s and most of it I got thru awesome deals on E*bay. I always scope out the thrift stores for the occasional find. Last month I found a serving dish, with a crack on it for .50c, Whoohoo! My first few pieces though were given to me as a bridal shower gift from my Grandma. The pattern is just so her! Now and then ill uses the tea set and it always feels as though she is with me when I drink from the silly little cups.
We were in the thrift store a couple of days ago. I was checking out the dish selection and suddenly a woman approached me and said "Hey Lady, wanna buy some cheese? Two bricks for $5. That a real bargain" er "NO thanks anyways" She was real waxy and ill looking. The cheese looked even worse. Reminds you just how desperate people can become. So I left the store empty handed.... no dishes and definitely no cheese!
