Finding a Treasure and a Memory
My find this week is the lovely blue and brown vase. I love it!! I paid a whopping .99 cents and it was worth every single penny. Love finding thrifty finds? Then check out Lady Cordelia and see what others have unearthed.
I had to show you the most GLORIOUS sunrise this very morning. Yep. I grabbed the camera when I took Frodo outside to get the paper. Let me tell you, photographing, holding the paper and the leash is getting to be a skill I have honed.
I was thinking about why I love mornings so much. To me they are full of a day's hope. I have the many hours ahead of me to accomplish what I want to get done. I am quite scheduled in my life, always have been. I need a plan, I want a plan. So every morning I grab a cup of coffee and write my list for the day. With the kids away at universities my list is quite short and simple. I'm enjoying that immensely!
I've always been a morning person. As a kid, I remember getting up around five a.m. when visiting my grandparents so I could catch a snuggle from my gram. I would sit quietly and just be with her. I also played a game of sneaking drinks of her coffee without her knowing. As an adult, I realize that she pretended to be shocked and surprised that her coffee was gone :) How sweet!
My gram was the queen of thriftiness. She shopped at thrift stores, many times I was her side-kick. I went straight to the party gowns! No matter what I found, she would buy it for me.....I loved that. Later in the evening I would play dress-up and twirl around and around in my "dance" clothes.
So are any of you morning people? And who was your "thrifty" influence?
