Hey, this is Emily, or Miss Molly, Joy's niece. I have temporarily taken over the blog writing. You may remember that I was the one that helped start this little addiction of hers. At the moment she is too busy to write, she is trying to get her house ready for her open house that is at 10 on friday. As you can see she still has some work to do, but she will have it finished. . . at 9:45 on Friday morning (have no fear, she always does it!).
So yesterday Auntie was having a difficult day. At midnight, while at the 24 hour market, she about snapped under all the pressure. She started questioning why she even bothers decorating, wondered if anybody cares, and was ready to cancel her open house all together. In this tramatic time of need she headed to the magazine aisle for some theroputic inspiration. Now mind you, she selected this particular magazine for absolutly no reason, it is not one of her favorites, but when she opened to a radom page she found the sign she was looking for. She found a picture of HER house. There was no name and the picture was four years old, but those were minor details. It was all she needed to get her spirit back. Now I would like to point out again how this discovery was meant to be, she does not typically read this magazine and pure spontaneity was the only reason she picked up that certain issue.
Now I would like to tell another story that happened to her at a 24 hour market, yet was not so positive an experience. As she was in the fast food line at 6 am she ordered a small Diet coke, which costs a dollar. So to her surprise the cashier gives her back 40 cents. She is so confused until she realized. . . THIS LADY HAD CHARGED HER THE SENIOR CITIZEN RATE!!!!!! As traumatic as this experience, she does seem to have bounced back and has returned to her normal crazy self.
And now a quick note on the spoon blog, this was a joke, she DID NOT glue all of those spoons on the barrel; she was only stating how long it must have taken. Although she is crazy and does spend inordinate time on projects, she does see the craziness in that particular project.
This picture is of me, dressed up for my school's homecoming dance. This dress cost 13.99, I must have inherited the family gene of buying cheap stuff. I liked it because it looked vintage, that must run in the family too. On that same day we dressed Addie up as a pirate and took a picture on this old tractor, it was such a cool tractor and she looks so dang cute i could not resist adding this picture.
Well this is my goodbye to all her avid readers!
xoxo Miss Molly
P.S. I hope you like my song addition to her blog
