Random Thoughts on a Sunday

Day 136

It’s late and I decided to just throw out some random thoughts for tonight.

Flowers

I just spoke with some friends about our favorite flowers. Mine is an iris. Flowers bring up a lot of thoughts for me:

  • I always prefer natural planted flowers above cut arrangements.
  • My mother’s favorite flowers were portulaca, bleeding heart, and lilacs.
  • I like orchids and pansies because they look like they contain faces or figures.
  • I miss the yellow tab trees in Florida when all the flowers fall to the ground.

Rainy Days

It’s pouring rain right now. Some random thoughts about rain:

  • I love to walk in a spring drizzle of rain.
  • I love the sound of rain when I sleep.
  • I do not like threatening rain.
  • I remember my grandfather teaching me that when the leaves turned upside down it meant it was going to rain.

Love

I’ve been thinking a lot about love since Valentine’s Day. Some random thoughts:

  • I do not understand why it is so hard to love one another.
  • One should never be fearful of love.
  • Sometimes a bouquet of flowers doesn’t necessarily symbolize love.
  • As children, we used to break milkweed and if it grew back our love was true.

Nostalgic Items

The memory of some things make me smile every time I think of them:

  • Gum wrapper chains
  • Dotted Swiss
  • Marionette shows
  • The TV show Where the Action Is

Dreams

I love thinking back on the things I wanted to be when I grew up:

  • A Breck girl
  • An elevator operator (I thought this was the MOST glamorous job ever!)
  • A diamond cutter
  • An archaeologist

Tomorrow is my sister’s birthday. I want to be happy about the day and not sad.

  1. Lovely thoughts on a rainy evening.
    Love yellow roses, and lilacs, and pansies, orchids, and hibiscus, and…
    Enjoy warm summer rainy days swinging on my outdoor swing listening to the rain on the tin roof.
    Love should never hurt. Sadly it does sometimes.
    Nostalgic items, dotted Swiss, quarter patterns, 10 cent ice creams at Thrifty
    Dreams: the biggest dream I had as a kid was to be a teacher and a mom

  2. I too love pansies! Also, sunflowers because they remind me of my late golden Minnie who was my sunshine.
    Dotted swiss…..perfect memory! A favorite blouse, as a child was fitted swiss! Thanks for sparking that memory.
    I LOVE rocks and that’s why I live near some REALLY big ones! Lol.
    There is more, but its late and I’m tired! 😍

  3. This post came directly into my inbox, as “normal” — technology is great until it isn’t! Nice musings for a rainy night. I’ll be thinking good thoughts for you today.
