There is Nothing Like...


...a beautiful Saturday morning in September. Nothing! No office to go to and no subway to take. I've just finished a fabulous cantaloupe/strawberry smoothy, with organic flax seed for good measure. Saturday morning services coming up and a quick run to the post office before I see my friend Mary. We're thinking of a movie and we'll also get in a nice walk and time to catch up.
More on Martha...The chairs were actually quite comfortable. Our gift was a cookbook that Martha had written the forward to. Alas, no car! There were some gifts given out randomly in the audience, including mugs and videos. The audience didn't get to try the food that was cooked, and there were no crafts on our day. Would love to go for an all-craft day of the show. Martha was very interesting and warm to guests, not a bit snippy, but my sense of Martha is not sweet and huggy. Martha would be the friend I turn to when I need to learn how to make special pumpkin muffins, but not my first thought when I need a hug.
Thanks blog sisters for hugs and good wishes. I'm feeling calm and going to enjoy this beautiful Saturday. Special wishes for Kathy and Jess, who are leaving next week for a wonderful trip and to Mimi, who is off to Disneyworld. Bon Voyage!

Hi Buttercup :)

I have never been anywhere near Martha, but I have the same impression of her. Not huggy at all LOL

It sounds like you two had fun though :)

A great description of Martha! I'm so very glad you got to go and have the desire of your heart granted. Any thoughts on seeing Oprah? :) I'll be in New York city in the spring. Hope it is like autumn...

I've heard ole Martha is a tough cookie - but look at where she is at. Glad you're at peace.

Thanks for sharing the Martha story! I agree with your assessment. She seems like a no-nonsense kinda woman.

Thank you for following my blog and I look forward to reading more of yours. I love the idea of looking for the positives. It's a lesson we could all use.

Have a wonderful day! Oh, and I love your fall design. It's very comfy! Just like pumpkin pie :-)
