Linda's Letters

Saturday, March 30, 2013

I am a big fan of a local artist, Jill Elizabeth in East Stroudsburg and her Liztech pins. My collection is modest with only about 30 in my jewelry drawer. Whenever I wear one, people will comment on it. I usually wear one that speaks to me that day, or matches what I'm wearing. Right now I'm wearing "Rabbit Rabbit" because it's a bunny and speaks "Easter" to me.

A few weeks ago, my friend Stephanie and I went to hear Madeleine Albright speak at Lehigh University.

We all lead such busy lives. If we work, it's a constant juggle to do our jobs then go home and clean, do laundry, cook, mow, attend to the care of the upkeep of our homes, vehicles ... the list is endless. On top of all that, we need to tend to the relationships in our lives ... spouse, children, grandchildren, elderly parents, friends. Throw in church, club and organization commitments and you might be left asking ... where is "Me Time?"

Linna Sue, a fine door-full of a woman, had a firm thatched roof, a roaring fire in her hearth and a good man that could talk the teeth out of a saw. Old Har was a cunning hunter, a good provider and loved his Linna Sue true.

Some say she was fey. Others simply called her daft. But the good-hearted Linna Sue dinna mind. She was use to what the others thought of her and her stories. Laugh they might at her nose stones and hairy chin. It dinna matter to her. For she knew what was true.

Like, Little People really do exist.

"Laughter is the best medicine." How often do we hear that?

I love to laugh. I try to hang out with people who make me feel good and make me laugh. I'll watch "The Big Bang Theory" on TV before I would "20/20."

A couple of weeks ago, we went out to dinner with my sister and brother-in-law in their car. On the way home, Diane turned the radio to a comedy station. Bill Engval was the featured comedian. We laughed all the way home. We sat in the driveway and continued to listen to Bill. Our evening ended on a happy high.

Are you sick and tired of the gray days of winter? Are you as ready for spring, green grass and flowers as I am?

Well, it's finally March. March 20 is the first day of spring. Come on Sunshine. Crocuses ... spring forth!

To help break up our winter doldrums, we've got St. Patrick's Day on March 17 to look forward to. Easter too, but that isn't until March 31.

So in the meantime, what can a girl celebrate in March?

Thank heavens for the calendar of Bizarre and Unique Holidays!

We're in the process of giving one of our rooms a make-over.

All we want to do is paint and rearrange furniture. I thought it would be best to start with a clean slate so we took everything out of the room to start from scratch.

Oy vey.

We piled stuff in our bedroom. We loaded up the dining room table. The old futon is blocking another corner of the dining room and the living room looks like it should have a yellow tape across it, preventing anyone from entering a disaster zone.

I cannot believe everything that was in that room!

OK. So how many of you dream at night?

Do you ever have these really weird dreams?

Let me tell you about the one I had last night.

A long time ago, in a small village, lived a little girl who loved to watch television. One of her favorite shows to watch was hosted by a beautiful blonde cowgirl. Every day the beautiful blonde cowgirl wore a different cowgirl outfit with stars and fringes.

My niece Jennie Rose, loves celebrating her birthday. In fact, she loves it so much, she calls October her Birthday Month and just finds so many ways to celebrate in 31 days.

I didn't quite do the Jennie Rose thing but I did a pretty good job of stretching out my birthday this past weekend doing all the things I love ... went out to dinner (twice!), shopped (clothing, favorite country stores and antique mall), baked cupcakes, saw a great movie, and spent the actual day with the people I love most in this world.

I just love surfing the Internet for quirky stuff.

For instance, I learned that January has quite a few notable attributes other than being the first month of the year where we celebrate New Year's Day and kind of marks the halfway point for the winter season.

January is also National Eye Care Month, Family Fit Lifestyle Month, National Personal Trainer Awareness Day and Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. (Wow, what a coincidence! I have my yearly gynecologist appointment on Monday and I didn't even know it was Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. How cool is that?)
