Week's End - See You in September


One Christmas morning, a parental nod, go ahead. The only walking child, three to follow. A record player & a few 45s under the tree. It had to be for me. For me? For me? Really? It remains a highlight, that day. Music. On demand. My own. I can't play music, of any kind, in the background...or I stop listening to anyone, everything.

It's (way) past time to take a break, make & keep appointments/lunch/dinner/drinks, gather photographs for Giulia Geranium, cause a little (well-meaning) trouble. What else. Oh, yes, finish up some projects, send the little darlings out into the world. Waiting is the hardest part...'tis true.

Have a great couple of weeks; I hope you get up to no end of (harmless) nonsense. I'll be stopping by the links on this page & those on GG, too. xo

This brings back many memories. My parents had a stack of 78rpm so we 4 kids grew up singing along to Mitch Miller and his contemporaries. Have a great break. Julie [the roo]

Dear Julie, Catherine, & Sally--

Thank you! As it is Sunday a.m. in DC, I fear that break-taking might not be as easy as I thought. However, I shall give it a go.

xoxo

Dear Marie-Laure, Liz, & Anita...thank you so much for stopping by. I'm trying to give myself a break, too. In the other sense.:)

Merci, Isa. Vous êtes si gentils. [Is this one of my Isa friends? I went to blogger ID but no profile. Très mystérieux!:)]
