Saturday Tidbits

by Marinka on August 9, 2008

I am busy decluttering today, which so far has involved my getting rid of tons of clothes and books and papers and possibly fossils. I am in the mood to be ruthless, so I have been tossing things without a second glance, except every once in a while, I do stop and take a look and I’m almost never sorry.

My friend gave me this card for my birthday, I love it because he calls me Marinka and serenades me with a poem. Perfect.

I also got this card from a friend who was vacationing in Croatia.

If there is anything that I love more than semi-literate English cards printed in foreign countries, I can’t quite figure out what that is.

And then there was this:

My in-laws visited us last month, and when they left, I noticed that they put this baby portrait of my husband (and the other four of the quintuplets) up in their room. Of course, I was not going to throw it out, but it makes me laugh every time that I look at it because it is such a period piece. Sort of like they used to draw children as miniature adults in medieval times.

One year ago ...

LOVE the dolphins. Gave me a good laugh – which was appreciated, since I’m feeling a bit weary. “Here is exhausting.”

Would you fly over and do my house when you’re done there? Thanks.
