Why I Don't Like School Recess

It’s summer; school’s out. I hate school being out except for one reason: I can now go down any street on my way to the Wal-Mart, any fast food restaurant I need, the doctor’s office, mall, or just about any place else I usually go without wondering whether the blinking school lights are going to be blinking at the time I go down that street.

When I was a kid, school was from 8 am until 3 pm. It didn’t vary with the grade or anything. Now, if you’re in kindergarten, grade school, junior high or senior high, it’s just about a different time for each of them. Very frustrating to those of us who don’t have kids in school anymore.

BUT, now that school is in recess for the summer, the streets are definitely more crowded with teenage drivers and WM looks like a third world country with all the teens popping in for goodie snacks. It’s much busier than usual.

This house isn’t on the water; it’s IN the water.

Just makes me smile to see lovely things like this.

Isn’t this old clock just elegant?

I’ve seen this photo on a lot of sites but I had to include it here as it’s just so cute and pink. ;-)

I like chippy old things. I’d even put this on our covered porch if I had it.

A red picket fence against an old stone wall. Perfect eye candy.

You rarely see such a gorgeous perfume bottle. Just lovely elegance.

This umbrella is perfect for me. I’d love to know where to buy it.

Beautiful fabric pillows.

A serene setting in a gorgeous garden.

Antique vintage umbrella stand.

Old building with lots of character.

Yes, a pink boat!

Pretty pink glasses.

Pink roses Wellington boats, probably from Victorian Trading Post.

Elegance setting for just about anything you can imagine.

Perfect small dinner party setting.

I’ve tried to get into Green Gate to buy something but it simply won’t show me how to do it. I think it’s in Denmark.
