I am Grounded

I know. HEAP is happening in Tyler. Portia, Gina and Alan are at it in Dallas. Hico is hopping. And me? I'm grounded in Poetry.

You see, the music is playing and I've been dancing, but I am having some problems keeping in step with the rhythm.

The next few weekends, I intend to reacquaint myself with my house and home. My land. My garden. My barn. My pond. My trees. My cats. My carpet. My laundry. My garage. (Well, that garage thing could take more than a few weekends. *wink*)

Anywhoooo, you get the picture. No public appearances for a few weeks. I am fully aware that I am missing out. And I'm not very happy about that. But, sometimes, one has to act grown up. This is my turn. Ugh...

In the mean time, here are some shirts I picked up this morning between life appointments.
Pile o' shirts
Bowling, anyone?
How's your outfit coming for Dress Up Day at Primitiques? Need a cool, vintage shirt?
Now, would you like to take a guess at what this is? I'll be using it at an event at my house in a few weekends.
It's about 2' x 2'. Hmmm...Whatcha think?

Happy Thursday!


  1. Oh! I know! I know! Pick me! Pick me! Nah... I can't say what it is 'cause I cheated and have already been told by YOU!

    Dang.... I'm jumpin' around sayin' what it is! In a muted voice though. dang.

    Okay - LOVE the shirts!!! I have an outfit... or two... or... a few... picked out!

    Now, get to work young lady and quit reading this - get to know your cats and your carpet and pond and stuff... don't forget to turn the Christmas lights on - just for mood lighting.

    ;-D (that's my big cheesy grin)

  2. Acting grown up is no fun...believe me! But a girl has got to do what a girl has got to do! So go do it, girl! What is wrong with your elbow? Bending it too much reaching into your purse for money? :) You need to get Mindy embroidered over the pocket of that bowling shirt. That would be cool to wear!


  3. LOVE the shirts... I'm thinking of an outfit or two! Lezlee

    Is that for holding the fish after they are caught?!?

  4. Oh....... oh-my-gosh............ do you think you have shoppers elbow? Or... bowlers elbow? No kidding - you need "the mindy" embroidered on the bowling shirt. LOLOLOL I'm laughing - but I'm serious!!!

  5. Hmmmm....I think it's from a dishwasher!

    Okay, I cheated. ;-)

    The junking gods will reward you for exercising restraint this weekend. No really, they will.


  6. hi mindy,

    i'm trying to do the same thing you are...stay grounded until i get my at home projects in order!

    of course an annual (Mother's Day wknd.) neighborhood garage sale with an estate sale in the midst didn't deter me! it was fun with lots of goodies.
    love those shirts! wherever did you find them?

    that "thing" looks like one side of a box fan to me...but i dunno for sure. but i am sure you'll let us know...cuz we'll be awaitin'

    judi ;)

  7. I've got the cool vintage clothes, Mindy - just missing the plane ticket to come to the party...
