Antiques Roadshow Haiku in Three

                      Love the old treasures!
                      The books, the watches, and maps..
                      Art nouveau jewels!

                      Gems found at yard sales!
                      Handwritten letters I love..
                      The stories and fun!

                      Stuff from everywhere!
                      Patina and history..
                      Watch inner workings!

Yes!  Tonight is the season premiere of one of my favorite shows. Will be watching with popcorn!  I think the old maps are my very favorites!  But wait, perhaps the antique watches. The inner workings of a watch are works of art, in my opinion. It's almost time. And.. I'm having that pesky problem posting pictures!

I'll be back soon, though. You all have a lovely Tuesday..

A Little Haiku

                                        Autumn is at hand!
                                        Crisp in air and in apples!
                                        Time for pie, sweaters!

This is it for today.  Gotta come back slowly.  :)  Plus, i have a new laptop, which means a new keyboard and a different way to load photos!  It will take some getting used to.  Now -- let's see if i can add a couple of photos of some of the roses from our garden over the summer.

Yes!  I managed to post three!  Yay me!  Planning on a longer post tomorrow.  I've missed being here, but had a magnificent summer.  Missed you all lots.  I hope you've all had a wonderful first two days of the week.  (I know the week officially begins on Sunday, but to me it always seems to start for real on Monday.)  :)  And a splendid Equinox to all!

                Peace, and i'll be back soon!

Escape from the Netflix Vortex!

                          Eleanor the Kitty has escaped from Netflix!
                          For her all the choices were an addictive mix!
                          The search for the right show was the wrong kind of hunt..
                          Too hard to decide, so in the end she'd just punt!
                          It took too much time, so to escape was the right fix!

                          Eleanor decided she'd rather hunt mice..
                          A nap in a sunny corner is twice as nice!
                          Now there's more time to romp in the catnip..
                          And more time to spend with her Tuxedo friend, Pip!
                          Plus more time to play.. no need to ask twice!

          Well, in case you're wondering, I'm really the one who has escaped the Netflix Vortex!  Lol. I changed my name, and turned myself into a cat to protect the guilty!  There were just too many choices, so husband and I decided to get rid of the Netflix. I lost track of how much time I spent trying to decide what to watch. I could have just picked up a book, gone for a walk.. done any number of things, but I just sat and sat trying to make decisions!  Ridiculous!  Just too many shows!  Old ones. New ones. Mysteries. Comedies. Insanity. Especially for my menopausal mind. But that said, I'm still trapped in the Acorn Vortex. (For those of you who don't know, Acorn is a streaming service like Netflix that streams British shows.). I think Eleanor and I will 'have' to hold on to that one!

                    You all have a beautiful day. Time for me to go, and do something other than watch a movie or a classic TV show on the Tube!  Peace to all..
