Do You Read Your Horoscope?

Today's Horoscope said; It's fine to have plenty of ideas,but if you don't follow through with at least
some of them, the time spent mulling over them will be a waste.
That couldn't be more right for me. I have a lot of grand ideas but follow through seems to be
my down fall.
How are you with follow through?

I got a call from the library they were able to find a Gladys Taber book I wanted.
I love reading it she was the first Martha Stewart. Her writing is a joy I think this book was first published in 1937 this is a reprint in 1984. She is a city New Yorker and bought an old farm house with her sister in Connecticut.
Downton Abbey book had just come in.
 

Mary's tiara was on loan and had a special person who followed it around the set.
The tiara is worth 1,936,068.00in us dollars yikes.                                                                                 We are having quite the winds today and into
tonight. It is very cold I am just praying that the power stays on. I live in N.H but watch The Vermont public network, they are
having a live chat during and after the season ending of Downton Abbey should be fun. If I still have power.

My daughter thrifted this wonderful April Cornell table cloth
since it didn't fit her table I got it for the porch or the table in the family room.
***
I baby sat with Miss B Thur and Friday oh what fun we had we went for a walk and played
tea party, we went thrifting,we splashed in puddles in our boots. I just had a ball with her. My daughter called and said she was really
upset that G didn't come to play on Saturday. (So was G)
***
A home in the country is no place for the idle. For it takes you over. Stillmeadow has been a dictator for all these years. The House demands whatever it feels like and ours not to question why, ours
but to do and die.

I love Gladys Tabor books, I have read several. Would love to do the same. Sounds like a wonderful time with Ms.B., so good you got to do that.

I actually can't remember the last time I read my horoscope, but this one you have quoted seems like it might fit me.:-)

It has been a cold day here with really breezy winds. We, of course, are not accustomed to the cold temperatures you are having.

It sounds like a good time with Miss B! Also, that's a beautiful tablecloth! Lucky!

I hope you keep your electricity!

You and I have more in common than you know. I'm in the same situation...I have lot's and lot's of ideas but not so good on the follow-through. It sounds like a wonderful time you had with Miss B. Those are just the best times ever.
Yes, this wind is crazy. Same here.

I bet you had a wonderful time with Miss B. Little Jack came over and we babysat. Aren't grandbabies the best and happiest moments!!! Cheri

I read my horoscope and always wonder if I'm really a Pisces since it never "fits." Then I read all the others and pick out a month I really want to be born in! Downton Abbey was sooooo gooood...sooooo sad...sooooo can't wait until season 4 even if it means it will be winter by then. Sounds like you had a fun time with your Grandbaby! Now that is a good day!

So glad I read this post, didn't know who Gladys Tabor was although I've heard her name, just not about her. I also learned that Mary's tiara is worth a small fortune (had no clue about that either).
