We, the Concentrationally Challenged

Friday, May 20

It’s so beautiful out today–hard to stay inside and focus on what needs to be done.  🙂

Packing for the trip to New York, for instance.  I spent yesterday shopping for a few extra things to wear–not my favorite thing to do when my weight is higher than I’d like–but I found a dress, a skirt, and two blouses that will work.  The wonderful thing is, there will be so much going on, so many friends to see and books to sign and events to attend, that I won’t have time to feel self-conscious.  

My “Little House” books arrived recently–I plan to read them straight through.  They are lifelong favorites, along with “Anne of Green Gables”, “Little Women”, “Jane Eyre” and a real oldie called “Girl of the Limberlost”.  I also loved the Nancy Drew mysteries, Trixie Belden, and before that, the Bobbsey twins.  I believe our most beloved books become part of us, in some way, don’t you?

Spokane’s Lilac Parade is tomorrow–kicked off by tonight’s Torchlight Parade.  (Spokane is the Lilac City.)  Welcome, lilacs.  I swear, that must be the way heaven smells–like those lush and lovely purple flowers.  Few things are more beautiful, in a fruit jar vase or a pitcher.

Have an outstanding weekend.  I certainly intend to.

Oh, and one more thing.
