As some of you (Victoria) may know, I LOVE Old Navy.
Especially when they have amazing sales.
For example - I picked up 2 pairs of shorts today because I saw they were only $4.99 each!
And then I got to the register and my TOTAL was $4.22.
Too bad I'll have to wait through 7 months of snow & freezing before I can wear them.
In other news - I am practically jumping out of my skin in anticipation of this upcoming weekend; in fact, just earlier today I sang a little jingle of excitement, which caused Doug to look at me in bewilderment and ask, "Did you just sing 'Western New York, here we come'?"
I have a half day of school on Friday.
Victoria & I have a craft sale for Good Apple on Saturday - hope to see a lot of people there!
Cider n' Donut is Saturday night.
Sunday is family time and watching the Bills!
Here's a poem I wrote about my desire to be back in WNY, while trying to be content with where we are right now.
I'm dreaming once more in a golden haze
Of wandering through orchards and fields of maize.
As I drive past rows of houses on end,
I envision each a tree - weighted branches bed
With the pregnant strain of crisp, ripe fruit,
And the farmhands ransack as if gathering loot.
While I idle in a sea of metal and wheels,
My mind drifts eastward to Mom's homecooked meals.
A country girl in suburban sprawl
Longing to pacify her heart's deep call.
For with my love I live, and with my love I roam,
But still my heart daily cries for home.
Someday, someday - hope's fondest sigh
In which promise and faith mingle, mount and fly.
