Coulda/woulda/shoulda is my stepmother's way of defining dithering. Put in perspective, it is a useful tool. Considering all the angles, researching, making notes, better yet, making lists, all the sign of intelligent, insightful thinking. I am all for celebrating accomplishments and learning experiences, but the habit of rushing in to get it done then dealing with unwelcome results is just as bad as dithering a decision to death.
My Great Granny Leeds used to make butterscotch pie for most holidays. I thought it looked funny, so I wouldn't eat it when I was a kid. Big mistake. By the time I got curious, we only had a few more holidays left with Granny and her cooking.
While we were waiting on word about Joy, I kept my mind busy and followed up on an email from Freecycle. They've just started a cafe, and I actually did the suet project with the end goal in mind of putting it on the cafe. I started an album, and two recipes. I just found out there's a place just for recipes. I'm glad it is early on so I don't feel like an outcast newbie.
This is going to be a quick post, just to have it dun. Decided to look into making suet balls for the birds.
The festivities haven't quite ended yet. We ended up finding a perfect car for Gram's 93rd year! However, it's not a DUN deal yet because someone else is trying to finance it. If it falls through, though, I'll have a big giant DUN page. What a celebration that will be! Crossed fingers!
Friday Terry and I decided to go to Rainbow Gardens at Waldameer. The marque advertised a used car show. I thought it could be a groovy place to learn how to use my strobe. The show was free and so was the food. Hot dogs, donuts, cookies, pretzels. Got some people practice with the two manning the big prize wheel.
Afterwards, Terry and I decided to go have a drink at the Sandbar. I was tickled to death that they had hard apple cider on draft! Terry borrowed my camera for a second and got the girls behind the counter. They were tickled.
Way back in Spring, I decided I wanted to celebrate the Sunday after Thanksgiving in a special way. The way I desired is slightly different than the way it will transpire, but we will celebrate.
If you don't dream they can't come true
