Alison, She is NOT Subtle

I know I don't update this blog on a regular basis. I don't do anything on a regular basis. Except be late for most anything I do. That is a fairly regular occurrence. Call my brother on his birthday? Oops. Hey, what's a day or a few between siblings. I'm busy, he's even busier... Such is life.

Maybe this place is what has made me so complacent about my loose interpretation of schedules.

Can you say less stress? Yeah, baby!

I did get to spend the afternoon by myself yesterday. Too bad I kept feeling twinges of guilt. I had planned on taking the kids to the SSRL Book Sale and then to Mahone Bay for The Annual Great Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair. However. The kids kept scrapping on and off most of the morning. That didn't bode well for an enjoyable afternoon. So after I was showered and dressed I hinted to my hubby about maybe just staying home, and he suggested I go by my self. Just sneak out he said. I hummed and hawed, and then grabbed my wallet and keys and took off.

I did enjoy myself. I just wish I hadn't that guilt lingering in my conscience. Ah, well.

I bought books. Not a lot. Then I somehow ended up at Have a Yarn in Mahone Bay. Acquired yarn. Had a chat with Heather about the service, or lack thereof, the day I wanted to abuse my hubby's credit card. Yes, Alison, I will post photos of my stash enhancement in (relatively) short order. (snicker)

Here. See that? My lavender actually bloomed this year. A first for everything.
