I know there's some life lesson hidden in my disorderly photos - I can't control life as much as I would like? Embrace the chaos? Relax? Bend like a gracious willow instead of remaining rigid like an indignant oak? Sadly, I could go on and on and every one rings true.
But here's the beautiful thing. Just as the sun comes up and a new day begins, I can start fresh each morning. Every day is a "do over" (remember swinging and missing the ball as a kid playing baseball and yelling "do over" meaning that miss didn't count and you immediately got to try again?), a chance to try again. Maybe making radical changes in the way I live, view life/others/self. Maybe minor tweaks.
So, would you continue with me as we meander through a somewhat disjointed selection of photos of some of the new-to-us items that we received this week? They're not neat and orderly - but I'm somewhat okay with that (only a little bit okay with it). Remember the stores is open today (Friday) from 1 to 8 and tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4.

Well now you know I wasn't kidding when I said my photos were going to be about as neat and orderly as herding kittens!
Breathe in, breathe out. Let it go, Susan.
May your day be filled with glorious chaos of the nicest kind, dear reader!
