I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday
Well, it's (as you guessed) Sunday and I'm going for a walk but am waiting for the Motrin to kick in so I can bend my knees without moaning (it's cold, damp, and windy here -- yesterday was above 70 -- wish it would make up its mind!). We've just been shopping. Where does this "Uptown Girl" shop? Lord and Taylor? Macy's? Williams-Sonoma?, Nordstrom's? We went to CVS!!! (I think I should mention here that this is the family joke: wherever we go (The Keys, Sonoma, San Francisco, South Carolina), our visit is not official until I've been to a CVS (and Dairy Queen, but that's for another posting!)). I love the store and today I had a 25% off total order coupon and another $5.00 off; we (read, 'I') had a ball! We bought toothpaste and toothbrushes, Oil of Olay products, and lotion and two little pre-lit Christmas trees for the front step. It doesn't take much to make me happy. If only we could solve the world's problems with a visit to a chain drug store! Time for my walk.
