Happy July! Pictureless Post…

Hi!  Happy July!  What is it about a new month that is so exciting?  Especially July…right in the heart of summer, one of the best seasons.  Such a good season, in my opinion, that I just wrote a song about it a week or two ago, and the tag line is “It’s summertime, let life begin again.”  Life is good in the summer.

What I did for July so far is move.  Again.  This time only 20 min. across town instead of 17 hours across the country.  Potato, potato.  K, that saying doesn’t really work quite as well when you are typing it.  But you get my drift.  It was much easier though, and I didn’t have to sell all my furniture.

I moved in with this girl who I work with at the preschool.  So far I’m pretty happy with the new place.  First day here, and I run into Keith Urban at the local Starbucks.  I’ll take it.  Put me into shock for a good half hour, but it was worth it.

My Goodwill futon came with me, it has done a good job for the past 3 months, so I’ll keep it.  Not firing it or reassigning it to couch position just yet.

A house move means a Goodwill move as well.  Luckily, my love, Nashville, has tons of Goodwills, so there really is one for every area.  I have lived close to the Charlotte Pike one and have used that one, I just lived near the East Nashville/Gallatin Goodwill and got to get to know that pretty well, and now I live near the third and final one in Berry Hill.  This location is particularly exciting because it also has a Goodwill outlet attached!  This is where all things to go to die, or to finally be sold.  Half empty or half full?  Anything that doesn’t sell at a regular Goodwill is taken here and put in bins and sold by weight.  My new roommate got her straw purse there that I wrote about it this post.  I have gotten a few things there in the past as well.  And now I will get to go there more often!

This particular Goodwill also has a bountiful furniture section, something the East Nashville location actually didn’t have at all.  Strange really.  Sometimes a piece or two would be thrown in the corner near the childrens’ clothing (makes sense?? they do a lot of furniture buying those kids I have found…).  Hardly constituting a furniture section.

I can’t wait to find out what new things I will need for my new place and see if I can find it at Goodwill.

Also (I think this is my first pictureless post???) I don’t have a picture, but I am wearing out in public for the first time my anna ‘winged’ shirt I like to call it because it is of the style that has the ‘wings’ attached to the sides.  I could add the picture again here, but I’m kind of excited about having a post with no pictures.  For some reason.  Y’all might not be.

Happy July everyone!  Make the most of these Summer days, they’ll be gone before we know it.  Go for a swim, a hike, or have a cookout.  Just a few ideas.  Using stuff from Goodwill whilst, of course:)

Lastly, I want to shout out to urbanwallart.wordpress.com for being my 50th follower:)  Its a special number.  He makes GREAT art and y’all should check him out.  I love and appreciate all of you, so much!, but he was numero 50, so I wanted to give him some props.  Can’t wait to get to 100 and more…

Ok, you caught me, I couldn’t do it.  I added a picture.

But that quote just really needed this, dontcha think? 😉
