Week in Review: Week 75

It was a quietish week. Was it? Maybe not. I forget.


This is my solution to too-sheer curtains on the bathroom window that looks directly out onto my landlord’s garden (where he frequently is).


An unwelcome friend found while packing. I think he came in in a box.


And he was tossed out in a box. Ugh.


Going through old school yearbooks while packing. This is college.


And elementary school. Oofah. It was a bad hair year. But I loved this blouse, because Laurie Partridge on The Partridge Family had the exact same one.


I got out to a beach one evening with a friend. There was no sunset and it was actually a little drizzly…but still nice to be out in the air staring at the water.

At work we had a nice event one evening, dedicating the new gazebo to the memory of a dear friend and co-worker who passed away at the end of 2016. There were family members, employees past and present…lots of tear-filled speeches, but also some laughs…and mostly it was a celebration of her life shared by those who loved her. An emotional evening.

I spent a LOT of time searching for head coverings….


…so I don’t look like this.


I hope I feel well enough to go to this.

I had a photo shoot and went to dinner with friends after. Dinner was a vanilla milkshake.


A friend made me dinner and brought me flowers. That was very nice ❤

And now I really must get on with the packing. Moving date is less than 4 weeks away. It’s grey and dreary here today, I should get a lot done. Unless I take a nap instead.

  1. Surely don’t envy the packing, but loved all the pictures – well all but one. Cardboard boxes seem to be a lovely home for the creatures. The gazebo is lovely, the beach looked peaceful and the milkshake sounds good. Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  2. Your landlord will think you have two headless ghosts if he looks at your window!!!. Where are you moving to,?. Somewhere nice?


    1. Ha, took me a moment to understand the headless ghosts comment, ha ha.

      I *am* moving somewhere nice. A charming waterfront town on the north shore of Long Island…I am currently living (if you happened to catch Trump’s speech on Friday) on “the blood-soaked streets of Brentwood.” Ha. Definitely moving on up! I will reveal all, with pictures, in a blog post soon!

      PS – I’ve always loved the name Pauline.


  3. Thank you, and good luck with the packing, look forward to hearing all about the move. and was your surname Rainwater that is very unusual, have never heard of it before.

      1. I think there are a lot in Tennessee, too. My father was from Missourri but besides his brother and sister and parents, I don’t think there were other Rainwaters.
