For the past several weeks finding gas has been a challenge. Last Saturday we got up at 5:00 and my husband drove around for 30 minutes before finding a station with gas. The wait in line was about only about 15 minutes. We felt so happy to have a full tank of gas! The gas shortage has made us so careful to drive only when necessary as we try to conserve what we have. I take a ballet class on Saturday mornings and I have skipped for the past two weeks just because of the 25 minute drive to the dance studio. So naturally I don't go out on any Saturday excursions. This weekend a couple of more stations in the area have gotten gas so I am hoping things will get back to normal. Hoping to resume my Saturday morning outings next weekend.


  1. Oh, my goodness. That's terrible, about the gas. I must be in the bubble of NYC. Haven't noticed any thing like that here. In fact, gas prices have gone down considerably these past few weeks. I just noticed they are starting to climb again.
    Hope it gets better so you can dance again!

  2. Nice to hear from you, too. Oh, that postcard swap...I figured I'll make-up a batch of 5-10 cards, and whoever wants to play, can!
    I think with autumn in full swing, I should probably get on that soon. Maybe by the end of the week, I'll be ready. I, too, am very busy with work. Thanks for the sweet comments. I saw The King and I this afternoon with my daughter. I love that movie so much. I was wondering if your friend had any of her dresses. They were so gorgeous!
    Take good care,
