Well, I already had my title for today's posting in my mind, and then when I was awakened in the early hours by thunder, lightning crackling, and the sound of hail hitting the windows by my bed, I just knew I had to use the words cacophonous cloudburst in my title. Ha!
Anyway, now that I have used them, I'll have to say that I did go back to sleep and dreamed that the house I was in in my dreams had a leaking roof, and my children were little, and we were looking out at the very small apple trees and they were loaded with huge, enormous, gigantic apples (would you believe big?) ha. Must be Farmville was invading my dreams. A neighbor came in and was looking around at the leaks in the ceiling, and said, "Yep, you need to get that fixed. Maybe I can do it for you."
Now, on the the collections. Are you a collector of stuff? I'll bet most of you are. I know we, as bloggers, are collectors of ideas and words, but we share them with others (we can't help ourselves). I am a lover of words and their sounds and how they trippingly roll from the tongue.
Here are some pictures of some of my collectibles in my house. I love Teapots, and what is more, I quite often enjoy a good cup of hot tea, and my daughter, Carol, makes wonderful iced tea. (I can't make iced tea worth a hoot!)
As you can see, I do like the little stuff (it doesn't take up a lot of space, and some of the things, like the cars and the gnomes, my husband enjoyed the collecting of. There is a vase in the center of the sixth picture down, that belonged to my mom and she purchased it for five cents in the year 1914. It is almost a hundred years old. I treasure it because it is one of the few tangible items that she left behind. My husband called collectibles "dust catchers" and I guess that is true, huh? The wooden knick-knack holder in the last picture, my husband had made for me on our 20th anniversary by a friend of ours who was a carpenter.
Well, that is it for today. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Bye for now. More later.
