Enchanted cottage, his laughter and a good walk

- This enchanted cottage that is actually home to a landscaping business. It is across the street from a non-profit client and I love how they always have color in the front, no matter what the season.

- A coworker's laughter when I ask him if he watches "Dancing with the Stars." I like to make him laugh, just to hear his laugh - it's great. I explained that The Bangles were on the show Monday night and I thought he would enjoy them. More laughing.

- Parking a mile away from another client's office and walking there, so I can enjoy the cool morning air. And stopping on the way back to the car to pick up a sandwich for later. It's a good one: egg salad on one slice of bread, tuna salad on the other, with a dark green lettuce leaf in the middle. It's so pretty when cut in half and yummy.

Lynn~ That walk sounds delightful. We have had a cold front whip in hear and the rumor has it...we might see snow! Thanks for stopping by and so glad you liked the poem I am taking to my poetry group meeting this Thurs, A.M. Because my father-in-law has a myriad of medical appointments weekly, I am indisposed quite allot of the time (for now.) Sigh.

Fireblossom's comment is soooooo funny. You are really into color in the landscaping business and in your sandwich:) About all the laughing -- remember laughter is the best medicine.

They do the sand dance don't you know. :)

Yes - I am glad I had that walk yesterday - I woke to a hard rain this morning and the weatherman says cold temps are finally here. I can't believe it's time for snow already in the NC mountains.

That is a fine poem for your poetry group and you are a good daughter-in-law. (((HUG)))

Granny Annie -

I know! I love that song - it was so cool to see the middle aged Bangles on DWTS.

The coworker I speak of has been sad lately and is just now coming out of it a bit. He and I like to make each other laugh - I'll walk by him and he'll ask me if I'm planning to go to the tractor pull this weekend. :)

Enchanted indeed! I can smell the baking pies wafting from the windows here.

Kelly has "Manic Monday" in her iTunes. Great song!! I like "Eternal Flame" a lot too. But alas, am one of the only 2 peeps in America who do not watching Dancing...

Ahhh, I bet his laugh is awesome!! You should take a jokebook, and recite them off to him. :)

Now I want some egg salad. I swear, your blog always makes me hungry!

Manic Monday. And walking in the cool weather. I like hearing a good laugh. No one laughs in my office. :)

G said...

Sounds like a great sandwich to make at home.

I actually like the Bangles. Good girl pop pop music.

LL Cool Joe said...

That's a lovely photo, and that cottage really does look enchanted!

Jannie -

It was a Manic Wednesday in my world today. Glad to be home. :)

A jokebook - a good idea!

xo

p.s. You know it! A Big Bud for you. :)

Riot Kitty -

I adore that sandwich. So good. Hope you get your egg salad!

happygirl -

If no one laughed in my office, I'd make it my mission to make them laugh.

G -

It was good to see the middle aged Bangles. :)

Joe -

I would have never gotten that photo, but traffic was backed up far and I was able to snap away. I've always loved that cottage.

Scarlet said...

That sandwich DOES sound yummy...and what's wrong with The Bangles? The chicas and I performed "Walk Like an Egyptian" at the karaoke restaurant years ago. It was so much fun...especially when you add the dance moves!

Lovely cottage, btw. I love color outside a home. Unfortunately I have too much shade in my front yard, nothing grows. :/

Lynn said...

Scarlet -

Nothing's wrong with The Bangles - I just was messing with my friend who only likes country music. :) I'll bet that song would be so fun to sing in Karaoke.

Sometimes I help out in the back and he loves to blast country music (thinking he's messing with me), but I secretly like it. :)
