Land of Kerplunk and Plenty!

Blogging along the other night when
suddenly that big red CyberDevil sucked
up my template! Oh the woes of blog deprivation
as I struggled to get things going again.
Still not right but that's for another day.
Took some very good advice from jollyroger
to check out the library sales today...WOW
what a bargain. Jonathan kept saying "I want
to READ that before you cut it up!" We shall see
as I am so behind in collage projects. Was able to
get about 20 lbs of books...for...get this...$11!!!
If our arms had been longer we would have gotten
more. Oh dearie me, but where to put all this
bootie?! Maybe peg up the red Union suits-they're
shapeless & baggy enough for anything!
After the library, over to Wilson Farms for the
freshest veggies anywhere, to pick up the goods
for tonights Potage Parmentier (potato & leek soup).
With it will be freshly baked Italian bread and Jon's
homemade crostini, an Italian pate.
Out to lunch for Japanese fare then finally home.
Only to discover great mail!!! Lovely envelope
from A.1. Wastepaper ( a great envelope is art
in itself!) with a challenging but fun booklet
and Poems. Rather a special book of poems by
Roger Stevens called "Searching For Blue Sea Glass".
I am thrilled to have a chance to read his work first-hand!
So, have heart...things can go way amiss in yer day...
but there's always a laugh to be found, even if it's on
us ( and it usually is!).
Cheers til later.

Glad to see your blog running smoothly again! The library sale is great, right? I love the one in Houston. It's a great way to build your own library and buy cheap damaged books for collage.

Your meal sounds marvelous. Lucky for you, we live too far away to accidentally drop by during dinner.

Hi, Swap...up & going again...
and one of my first sites to
visit was yours, of course.
Inspiration. Take care.

Glad the books arrived safe and sound.

I think the blog universe was on a bit of low the last few days.
Still, seems okay again now.

Sounds like a very nice day.

Roger, enjoying "Searching For
Blue Sea Glass" even more than
I had anticipated! Thoughtful but
