It's a beautiful September day here in Upstate NY. I started my day with Loser Breakfast. What better way to start your day than spending time with your dearest friends. Jim was waiting for me when I arrived home and we went on our walk. Now that school has started we can't walk on the high school track so we walk in the cemetery. It was a perfect day for walking, except that my iPod battery ran down on the first lap. Somehow that slows me down a little.
We've mowed today and I finally got some household chores crossed off my list. Now I can blog without guilt .
Cheryl had some fun Random Tuesday thoughts today which gave me an idea for this post. Hers were all the best things happening in her life right now. Mine are just going to be really random thoughts running through my mind right now.
The most amazing thing I can think of is my ornamental peach tree. While we were working outside a while ago, Jim said I should take a look at the peach tree. I couldn't believe my eyes. The branches were loaded down with peaches. I was afraid some of the boughs would break under the weight. I picked over a hundred peaches, not edible, of course.
Without any segue, I think the most disappointing recent happening would be the behavior of both Serena Williams and my favorite, Roger Federer at the US Open. The media has made much, as they should, about the horribly unacceptable behavior of Serena on Saturday evening. Her outburst has been shown over and over. In spite of what she said on her website, I don't think her actions on morning talk shows and in press conferences show any remorse. That said, Roger Federer who I always thought was a gentleman behaved badly on Sunday evening when he swore at the referee during the men's final. Granted, he didn't threaten the ref' with violence, but his language and demeanor didn't show any class.
Hey, how about the best thing I've purchased? Oh yeah, baby. Yesterday we finally bit the bullet and went out to buy a new flat screen TV. Jim has been talking about this for quite some time and I'm okay with it too. We had a little disagreement about the size and finally agreed on 47 inches. That, however, is not the best purchase. While Jim was finalizing the delivery arrangements, I was browsing around and found the Complete Second Season of Designing Women. OMIGOSH! I was so excited. I looked for the first season, but it wasn't there. Nevertheless, now I know it's available and will purchase it when I see it. In the meantime, the second season is sitting here waiting the arrival of the new TV. As excited as I am, it won't be quite as much fun to watch it without my girls. That was our favorite show. When Paige went off to college, Gretchen and I taped all the segments and we had a Designing Women's night when she came home for Christmas vacation.
The best thing I've listened to would be Paige's You Tube posting of Patsy Cline. I forget sometimes how much I love that woman's voice. Thanks, Paige.
Jim's waiting for me to go the garage and drop off my car for it's yearly inspection so I'll close with the best thing I've eaten. Jim and I provided dinner at his brother and SIL's on Friday night. On the way to Pennsylvania, we stopped at a Weg*man's store and bought their new Ultimate White Cake to share with the family. There aren't words. It was scrumptious. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
Talk to you soon.
