There Were Gems, And Mummies, And Tiny Toes

Monday, June 8, 2009

There were gems, pearls and such. There were funny hydrants, parades and Egyptian mummies. There were teeny tiny toes, velvet wallpaper and recycled waterfalls. There was just enough rain to make me nostalgic, but not too much to make me feel soggy.  There were vanilla cupcakes with rich butter cream frosting and coconut rice pudding, served warm with crusty  cinnamon topping. There were meandering walks through an antique store with a proprietor named Sal. There were family suppers and Farmer's Markets. A view of the park and a full, but cloud covered moon filled our view. There was a trip to heaven, I mean Powell's Books and a rare and sweet pocket sized book of fairy tales...
