Girls Day out

A day out with Tabitha and Vanessa always ends up to very fun and adventerous.  Tabitha and I always say that Vanessa takes us to the best places.. and she does. Here is our first stop.. Pleasant Hill Library Rummage sale........ Me and Tabitha with our Book Sale finds... Our boxes were full of great books,to include old cook books, planting books, I even found a cook book called White Trash cooking... Found a lot of music sheets books and childrens books... we paid almost nothing for our treasures. Vanessa Always takes us to the Best Places.   Next on the agenda for the day was the 50th White elephant Sale in Oakland.   It was a Massive warehouse that basically was a garage sale.  We rummages through boxes of junk to look for treasures.. and we all found some.  I found a ton of lace for my crazy quilts and we all fount emphemera or art supplies of all types.. we spent hours in there gawking at antiques, old books, office supplies, and a lot of sewing supplies.  Proceeds from this sale …

Being a Woman.....

How can it be a large career to tell other people's children about the Rule of Three, and a small career to tell one's own children about the universe?
How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No. A woman's function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness."
— G.K. Chesterton
Because I work with Autistic Children, and have 5 of my own.. sometimes I wonder whom I give the most of myself to.  Soon, I am retiring and my life will be about my husband and I and starting a new phase in our lives together.  It will be all about us and for the first time in many years... I am totally excited about my life again.  without a housefull.  I know I will miss it, and them,  but i so yearn for days in which I get to fill with what I want to fill it with. With 3 kids away in college and one with a exciting career …
