It’s a THREE DAY for Mr. D and me.
Today is the icing on the cake to a week that included my birthday.
The kids are bringing me breakfast . . . donuts from Chucks and an egg-bake . . .
. . . cannot wait!
Looking at it this way . . .
Next year . . . at this time . . . a promotion . . .
. . . from ” weekday care facilitator” to full-time “stylist of living”!
The word “retirement” is not in my DNA.
This week’s “shelfie” . . .
. . . is adorable!
The image shamed me a bit, as The Chocolate Gousse’s place setting is sweet but not nearly as chic as Finn’s.
HOW. CUTE. IS. FINN!?!?!?
The shelf detail reminded me of my grandparent’s home.
The last time I was in my grandmother’s house was 30 years ago.
However . . .
Recently Grandma and Grandpa Bozzello’s home was on the market.
I found images on Zillow.
I made a board and pinned. I apologize about the quality of the photographs, but you can grasp the idea about the shelf / room dividers, I remember. Grandma kept pretty plants on the shelves. She was a master gardener, inside and out. Most of her camellias, rhododendrons and various rockery plants are still alive and thriving.
We would B-line through the living room, the dining room, the kitchen and into the pantry . . .
. . . straight to her Lustro Ware cookie jar. It was ALWAYS full!
(Sadly, the pantry is gone.)
Thank you, Zillow for taking me back to grandma’s. I encourage you to visit Zillow. Enter an address from your past . . . you might find wealth of memories waiting for you!
