Back in the Day

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , at 3:35 pm by sillydreamer

Summer time meant no shoes, ever

we walked on the burning hot pavement

and burst the tar bubbles with our bare feet.

Little tiny Coke bottles made of real glass

and everything was Coke, no matter what brand it really was

because this is Texas.

Sugar Loaf and Hubba Bubba chewing gum,

wax bottle candy filled with colored water,

I think we even chewed and swallowed the wax!

And the music, still some of my very favorites.

In ’77 I heard about Elvis while staying with the crazy relatives

in Arkansas no doubt!

Had to hear on the religious radio station because that was all that was allowed.

Strangest summer of my entire life, ’77!

No TV, dresses only and speaking in tongues at church

we’re definitely not Baptist anymore, Toto!

Heat wave of ’80 and no air conditioner in our house, not even a fan.

Didn’t even really think it was that hot either.

Riding our bikes everywhere

even going down “Bitch Hill” which we named because it was a naughty word.

Staying out until the street light came on

hanging out at my best friend Misty’s house

with all her brother’s and sisters

8 in all.

Shag carpet and yellow formica countertops

with sparklies in it!

Wood paneling on the walls, macrame plant hangers

naughahyde furniture HA!

Skating at the rink to “Lay Down Sally”


8 tracks

’45’s and ’78’s

back in the day.

Dreaming crazy dreams

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , at 4:22 pm by sillydreamer

The last two nights I have had the craziest dreams ever.  Don’t you wonder why you have th dreams you do?

The night before last I dreamed one of my daughters and I were going to a place called World Market.  It wasn’t the retail store, it was a secret place that you had to ask people the directions to and then you had to go a church, climb up in a secret room that had a secret door, then climb down in this alley way…..so weird I tell you.  The absolute strangest part of this dream was that we were on bicycles, riding on a highway and I was carrying one of my daycare kids and a rabbit!!!!!  Then when we got into this town where the market was located, we stopped in front of this general store to ask directions and there was an animal that looked like Stitch from the Disney movie, only he wasn’t blue.  He was brown and I was scared that he was going to spook my rabbit or try to bite us. 

Now that I am thinking about it, I can’t remember last night’s dream but I know when I woke up this morning I remembered and thought how crazy it was too.  Of course, last night I had two glasses of wine with dinner so I can understand crazy dreaming because of that but the night before I hadn’t had one drop of alcohol.  Usually I can pinpoint why I dreamed about the things I did but I’m clueless on this one.

Enjoy your week-end 🙂

It just FEELS like Monday

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , at 7:44 pm by sillydreamer

All the daycare kids are here today but my kids don’t go back to school until tomorrow so I’m almost back into our normal groove around here.  I can’t get over the feeling that today is Monday!   I’ll say it again…..I could get used to a 3 day work week.

 Two of my kidlets are having a birthday party this afternoon so that should be fun.  Nothing like a little sugar to liven things up, huh?  We’ll have fun.   I brought in container that’s been sitting out on the patio and have discovered another stash of toys!  I’m taking a break from sanitizing them before I put them back in rotation.  The daycare kids will think Santa has come again when they get up from their naps and see all the new stuff!  Between that and the cupcakes, I’ll probably be peeling them from the walls by the time their parents come to get them.
