It’s the Door!

Copy of lpcp 832

Received this important information in an email today and thought I would share with you.  If you’re like me, it made me feel a lot better!

IT'S THE DOOR!!

Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was?

Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.

Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an “event boundary” in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next.

Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale.
It's not aging, it's the damn door!

Thank goodness for studies like this ..... I was really getting scared!

Applejack

Went to the Applejack Festival in Nebraska City, Nebraska and found this cute little witchy poo from Mockingbird Primitives. Just love her little broom.

 

Also bought me a pumpkin from Holmes Watermelon Patch located in Watson, Missouri.  They were set up at Applejack.  They grow Black Diamond Watermelons, Cantaloupe, Pumpkins and Crookneck squash.  These photos were taken by my cousin, whose parents Chris and Holly Holmes, aka  aunt and uncle, own the patch.

Egg Hunt

I know it’s not Easter but Jasper likes to push the eggs out of the basket onto the floor, roll them around chasing after them and then I have to go find them!  Silly kitty!

Have a great day!

A Touch of Fall

Ok yeah, so I went upstairs to hunt up the fall decorations, found the tote and picked out a few things to use, and even with just the few things I picked, I’m thinking where do I put this and where can I put that.  It seems like every year I am bringing down less and less.  I tell myself, if I get that out, I’m just going to have to put it back.

I can remember thinking, wow, grandma doesn’t really put much out for the different seasons and holidays.  Wonder why she didn’t just embrace it and get all out festive?!   I mean I use to put up three Christmas trees for crying out loud! Well… it’s all starting to make sense to me now, grandma knew what she was doing.  You put it up, you’ll be taking it down and do you really want to go there?

Simplify simplify… I like that word more and more.

 I’m guessing we’re all a little like that.  We start out doing it all, we never seem to have enough.

And before you know it we start wanting to simplify things.  Less is more.

Each year I’m discovering just how true that is.  Now will that stop me from purchasing something that I just love and calls my name?  No of course not, I haven’t quite reached that point yet but give me time I’m sure I’ll arrive there someday.

Until then I will just enjoy little bits here and little bits there!
