One of my regular blog-wandering spots is Junie Moon, a lovely woman with a large heart. I am often inspired & challenged by June’s posts; she is a fount of creative energy & regularly spotlights ways to put feet on your ideals- in just the past 10 ten days, she’s been involved with Special Olympics fundraising, shared her creations for a swap, tried a new sewing technique, salvaged some patio furniture, & offered a booklet of recipes for natural cleaning supplies.
During my visit today, I read about an opportunity to help those in need (a regular occurrence at June’s) in a way nearly every one of us can accomplish. The Peace T-shirt Project is being sponsored by Africankelli; if you are anything like me (a frugal Scot, who hates to see waste), somewhere in the house there is a stack of practically new t-shirts that have been outgrown, waiting to be taken to Goodwill. This weekend, I’ll be choosing a couple, possibly decorating them with some simple designs, & then forward them on to Kelli; she will pack them in her suitcase to give away while in Nicaragua & Mozambique.
Will any one else be honest enough to admit that you were first introduced to opera by… Mel Blanc?
To this day, I cannot listen to Wagner’s Tannhauser Overture with out hearing the immortal duet of Bugs & Elmer, singing:
“Return my wuv, a wonging burns deep inside me;
Reetwion, my luv, I want you always be-eside me;
A wuv like ours mu-ust be;
Made for you & for meeee;
Return, won’t you return my love, for my love is yours!”
Hope you each have a wonderful weekend; tomorrow, I’ll be working for a couple hours to finish my month end close reconciliations, then over to the opening of the Farmers’ Market & Cost*co for basics. Sunday is the Michael Bublé concert (which Sam doesn’t know about), so we’ll make an afternoon of it in Sacramento- shopping, dinner, & then some great music!
