The Dream Says it All

By Belinda

We sat across the breakfast table sharing notes on how we slept. Don't laugh, we are ageing Baby Boomers, this is what we do at breakfast! :)

"I was awake on and off all night," said Paul, "I kept having the same dream. We were at the airport, leaving for Israel; workers were laying tiles and focusing on getting them straight, but they were blocking our way to the ticket counter. And I was worried that we hadn't collected the things we were taking for the new Jewish settlers in Israel."

(Then came the clincher, the part that sums up the truth of our relationship!)

"And," he said,"I couldn't find my passport, and you kept saying, 'Don't worry, it will be all right. They applaud people who forget their passports!'"

Hahahaha. I love that you shared the dream and I can't wait to see how things unfold, what comes.

Haha! That's funny. Moreso because I had my own dream this weekend about showing up at the Missions Committee Meeting and being told I was NOT welcome (something about being a lazy do-nothing, or something along those lines).

"They applaud people who forget their passports.." :) Mmhhmm. I hope they applaud lazy do-nothings, too! :)

Ah yes, only $85.00 to replace the lost passport -- and of course the affidavit to declare that it was indeed lost ... I know things about lost passports!

Hi Anonymous. How're things in Indiana? :)
Belinda, that is so you! I know you'd like to live in a world where people applauded foibles!

Susan, you need to learn to thwack nasty dream people ... dreams are the only place where you can smack a nasty in the belly with a wet fish and not get charged with assault (or animal cruelty).

Anon, I really hope that I never have to fork out that 85 bucks! Some things are best learned through other's experiences.

Thwack! Thwack, thwack, thwack!

There. That feels better!

Thwack! Thwack, thwack! Whoops, I think I'm getting a little carried away...

Ha ha, you are all too funny! I think that he got the applause into the dream because Dutch people do applaud the pilot when the plane lands safely. I don't know what they do when it doesn't--possibly go "Thwack, thwack, thwack!" :)

Don't tell Paul I thwacked him! Pleeeeeease! :)

Dear Bel-Q Where to begin?The obvious,anxiety about accomplishing everything for the trip that Paul had envisioned, sure, but I love how it's workers that are in the way-Paul tries to give to them,these good people who are only trying to do a good job(but are still,at the end of the day,hindering him).But then,as you say,the clincher,Paul's need for applause,too funny!!!My tile-"Dreams Interpreted and Told by Poppy"

I know what Dutch people do when it doesn't land safely ... hide under wooden shoes and scream.

Dear Anonymous,
Hide under wooden shoes and scream? Haha!

I sure have laughed at everyone's comments and Poppy's dream interpretation. :)My cheeks are hurting from smiling so much and that has got to be a good thing!

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.

He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
