Good morning and welcome Through My Back Door. Get some coffee and a cookie, so sorry there is nothing else sweet, but remember those 6 pounds I gained last winter? Well they have now become 7. So I am serious as I can be, exercise, is in my future. Walking is to become a daily thing, like tooth brushing. There I have gone public, so maybe I will follow through. Dodd and Renda are always encouraging me and pushing me, and though I hate to admit it, I think they are right. I HAVE to exercise and that for me will be walking. I did wake up in the night with the crud, (as my family calls it) but am going to do my best to will it away. I am glad to see you this morning and would like to hear your input on the lack of kindness in the world. There is so much sadness, why on earth would we choose not to be kind? I see it on FB a lot. Especially on the decorating pages I belong to. I have actually, many times, started to remove myself from these groups. I love to get new ideas and enjoy looking at others decor. But a lot of the people are downright rude. Have you seen it? If a young person starts a collection, don't put her down because she can't spend the money, you can. What happened to kindness and encouragement? Anyway this has bothered me and I wonder how you all feel about it. Maybe if each of us on these sites would vow to be kind and encourage, then others would follow. Wonder what would happen if we called their unkindness to their attention. I don't think they mean to be unkind, I think they want to show how much better theirs is. What do you think?Will you join me in trying? Am I out of line here? If so tell me.
Enough of my rant. I went on the Longest Yard Sale with Deb, Michael, and Michael's Aunt Sis. We had such a good time and laughed a lot. We had good snack,s and a good dinner at my place, Cracker Barrel. My son teases me because CB is my place of choice. I know you are wondering if I bought anything. Well, yes, I did. Had no plans too, but I couldn't pass up this little North Carolina bucket bench. It really looks like a dry sink, but it is a bucket bench.
This little candle table is the one my Mr Whitaker made for me many years ago and I love it. Of course the light came from The Hen. So many people have said they really miss the Hen. She has a booth in Lenoir City, at Kinfolks I believe, (behind Hardees) so visit her there.
I also bought a long handled gourd and that was it for me. Deb and Michael bought a beautiful lift top school desk and it was from Nashville. We had a good day and saw only 3 booths that had something I liked. I am talking about furniture. I always like going, even if it was so hot Thursday.
It won't be long until Fall decorating begins. My favorite season next to Christmas.
PS: A friend of mine's daughter is gravely ill, will you send up prayers for Lisa Morris' daughter Marianne. A lot of you know Lisa
PSS: Also my friend Janet's son, Kenny is in the hospital awaiting test results. Will you pray that the results are good? I thank you my blogging friends in advance.
PSSS: yesterday was Deb and Michaels wedding anniversary, as well as Amanda and Clays. We had a fun Luau at Beth and Ryan's last night.
