A Saturday 'gypsy moment' . . . . . . . .



I drove no brightly painted Romany gypsy caravan - in fact I drove 
my husband's brand new shiny car for the very first time.
We tootled around town a bit, under heavy clouds, rumbling thunder,
in and out of showers, running errands to buy 
tomatoes, rosé wine, plump red plums.
Then, as I was wearing my junk gypsy necklace. . . . . we stopped at 
SuzAnna's Antiques to take a quick look at all the latest treasures, and of 
course to hug granddaughter Jasmin who was working there.

Saturday afternoon - late Summer - rain - humidity - lethargy.

  1. A lovely way to keep out of the rain. Hopefully the weather will clear soon to lessen the humidity. Have a wonderful Sunday my friend x

  2. Today has dawn a beautiful day, is this the start of an Indian Summer? and I shall be driving our new car down to see my granddaughter. The car is scary, it has so many gadgets, it talks to us, switches the lights on a dusk automatically, and completely takes charge when it rains. Enjoy your car - ours is a metallic tomato red.

  4. Sounds like a lovely time. Pretty necklace. The humidity here is unbearable. If I'm out too long I even have drops of sweat on my eyelashes and then come in stinking to high heaven.

  5. Such a cozy afternoon. I am proud of Jasmin for working in an antique shop. She will learn much about the past that way.

  9. That store always has wonderful stuff. I took a liking to those fleur-de-lis on pedestals. What great accent pieces they would be. Good thing you're all the way across the continent!
    Sounds like a great weekend.
