Specializing in Alterations

Is it just me or did someone shrink the weekends weeks?

4 minutes ago it was July.

~sigh~

Life is good.

I really have no complaints to speak of.  Me, hubbs and the kids/family are fine.  I love the work I do. There’s just a lot of it ~ my schedule lately ~ holy wow ~like trying to stuff 12 lbs of potatoes into a 2lb sack.

A reorganization + an endless litany of questions, deadlines, adjustments and situations.

But – in the darkness yesterday morning, as I pulled out of the driveway, on came an old favorite and I smiled and sang along. Sipping coffee in the darkness I smiled and thought, “well this is all that.”  Sometimes those moments are the most sane part of my day.

Time passages.  Indeed it does!

And if the past seven months are any indication, November will be Novem-blurr.

 

“Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations.”~Faith Baldwin

 

How about you? Have you experienced a time warp lately?

2 For Tuesday

It’s Tuesday – September 2nd – and just how did that happen?

1. Back to school today and it’s our grand-daughter’s first day of Kindergarten!  I took the wee ones school shopping last Sunday so here they are modeling new backpacks, shoes, hoodies and more.   Those bright neon colors from the Madonna-80’s era are back in force!  And Nana can’t help but notice the photo of our two boys in the background ~ pretty sure that was taken only 15 min. ago!

2.  Saw this picture on Facebook and had to share it … What does the fox say?

Have a great week everyone!

Icing on the cake

Looking over the calendar, I was startled to see today’s date: November 5th.

November 5th marks one year in my “new” job.

The one that’s not new anymore.

In the past year I’ve grown a lot.  And the company has changed .. even more.

I’ve lost sleep, gained weight, puzzled through and sorted it out.

I’ve cleaned up, cleaned out, reorganized and restaffed.

I’ve led the team, sought input, and grown the people.

And I’ve been so perpetually busy that I’ve been too busy to take a day off.

One year ago we still had our Frankie.

One year ago we still had our friend.

Time passes.

Seasons come ’round again.

And life has a way of sneaking up on us.

Any milestones sneak up on you lately?

“The first year was like icing. Then the cake started to show through …” ― John Ashbery

Time passages

Looking through some older photos the other day, I came across some older snaps of Frankie the dog:

With oldest boy:

Baby Frankie with big brother Boo

and with youngest:

Supervising leaf raking as a young gentle-dog:

in younger days, before the grey

And later, modeling a shrunken woolen sweater in a move known as the Marino-a-No-No.

He’s been a source of hilarity and a source of comfort, too.

See the smile on Frank's face?

And always, he continues to do what he does best … stay close.

13 years since he came home with us from the pound.

And always, ever faithful.

There is no faith which has never yet been broken, except that of a truly faithful dog.  ~Konrad Lorenz
