Wild n Crazy Ice Cream Flavors and Farewell Swim

September 26 2018:

Thomas and I stopped to get our Icecycle Creamery fix before Alchemist Theatre tonight!!

Oh my gosh!! Pickle flavor! Unfortunately there was only enough for us to taste and find out that we loved it!!! Yummy!! Must go back for that!

I tasted about 4 different flavors and Balsamic Roasted Tomato was one of them. I really didn’t think I would like it. Surprise! Incredibly delicious so that’s what I had.

Thomas had half Roy Rogers and half salted butterscotch.

September 28 2018:

This afternoon Team TLC had a farewell swim in the amazing pool! After this weekend, it’s drained and covered til next spring.

This Pisces girl is going to miss submerging in the water so often. And I know Thomas and Lillian will miss it too.

Deep gratitude for the wet, silky-smooth, hugs and love! I love you water …. til next spring! 💙💦💦 💦 💙

Free museum day!!! After all these years, Thomas and I finally toured the inside of Bowers Mansion.

Lots and lots of photos to follow as I love the grounds and trees!!

This is a group of accidental photos Thomas took after taking my picture. I think the blurr from the movement looks wonderful!

First Quilt Piece Collected

April 30 2018:

Camilla Jumping Washoe Lake April 2016

I did it! I just “collected” the first quilt piece for the story. I’ve been resisting doing this … sitting down to write and just randomly picking a memory to write about. It was uncomfortable, but once I got going I didn’t want to stop.

This was a memory from 16 year old Camilla and a time she lived in Terry, Mississippi in what she called the Crazy House! Who remembers that crazy lopsided mess of a house?

The idea is just to get memories and events down on paper and at some point start piecing them together. I won’t bore everyone with a post every time I do this; yet, I was excited for FINALLY starting!!

And … I just remembered something. I had made it my intention and vow to begin writing by the end of this month. HA!! Did it! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s a previous post from a few days ago … https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156428080041584&set=a.52927246583.79053.681171583&type=3&theater
