Diana took a ride in the car today. It was a beautiful first day of Autumn. Although she thought it quite hot for this time of year. The further north she drove, she noticed more and more the subtle changes in the colors of the leaves. They weren't the vibrant green they were weeks before.
She brought some CD's to listen to on the way to the Gastroenterologist. She was in the mood for Madeleine Peyroux's, "Dance Me to the End of Love". A song that she loved. It was her mother's C.D.
Diana's mother loved that song too, only Diana didn't find this out until after her mother passed away. It was played at her visitation.
It was a very nice ride and the doctor visit went as she thought it would. She wouldn't worry. No. She felt that life was much too short to worry needlessly.
The previous Saturday, Diana, her daughter Katie and Katie's friend Natasha went for another nice ride. It was another beautiful yet hot day. The ride was fun as the teen's played their music in the car, singing and chatting all the way to their destination.
The Big Mall....
They went to the BIG MALL in search of the perfect dress.
Which they found...
Which went very well with the gloves that Diana made for Katie and is now making for Natasha as well...
Which will go with the perfect necklace that Katie found to go with the perfect dress...
Shoes still need to be chosen as well as a little clutch purse.
It all has to be just so. After all this will be Katie's first high school dance!
It should prove to be a fun evening for the girls!
Unless of coarse Katie gets banned from the dance. You see Katie is one to speak her mind. She held a bit of a revolt at school last week.
She was written up and assigned to Saturday school!
Diana thought it was all quite silly and said as much to the administration.
You see Diana is also one to speak her mind when she feels the need to do so. It was a silly offense. Certainly not worthy of Saturday school.
So Katie's beautiful mother....
and handsome father...
had to teach their young teen that there is a right way and a wrong way to go about making changes in the world,
and in high school!
So the young and idealistic Katie went about printing up fliers to be passed out around the school.
The hullabaloo has seemed to calm down for the moment and Katie's mother just hopes Katie can hold her tongue.
At least until after the dance.
These days you can still find Diana hanging her clothes outside to dry.
Truth be told, she really enjoys it. She loves being out in the yard and the clothes smell so good.
Although her trip to the doctor today pretty much nixed any chance of her getting a new dryer in the near future...
For some reason, it doesn't bother her nearly as much as she thought it would. Although she may change her mind come winter.
Right now we find our "Housewifely Heroine"
