Shopping Adventures… ~ By Gabby Angel

Autumn and I set out for a shopping trip a little earlier today. Being twins it’s fun this way and shopping really can be an adventure when it’s the two of us. We were just going to a little mall about 20 minutes away and visiting a couple of the stores.

I have a tendency to drag out our shopping a bit too long sometimes. Luckily, Autumn is not shy keeping me in line and twinnies don’t get insulted with these things.

Our first stop was a little clothing boutique we both love. We were in and out of there rather quickly, it’s a small shop and we both had a good idea what we were after. A sweater for me and some rocking boots for Autumn. The girl is addicted I tell you, like I have room to talk. I am almost as bad as she is. I can almost hear Autumn saying the same is true of me with sweaters, among other things of course. We twinnies do love our fashion.

On we went to everyone’s favorite Wal-Mart, they have just about everything you need at that store. The one near us is open 24 hours, it comes in handy for those of us with insomnia doesn’t it? OK, here I am digressing again…Back to the twinnie’s shopping.

We didn’t argue over who pushed the cart by the way, we used to when we were younger sometimes.( I bet she loved me sharing that bit of information.). 😉 We were cruising through the aisles, picking up our odds and ends.Debating long and hard over how I did/did not need a cute little clock, of course Autumn was right. I have more than my share of clocks, I’ve written a couple blogs concerning this matter.

As Autumn asked me, how did we end up in that aisle anyway and promptly took over steering the shopping cart. We meandered over to the greeting card aisle, we need cards for a couple birthdays. Causing a bit of a stir, cracking each other up with some of the musical cards. We twinnies can be quite silly at times, but it’s fun…Even when we attract attention by mistake. Autumn and I tend to forget we are not alone and need to refrain from the amusing “twin stuff” between ourselves.

The nice lady shopper we startled with the one blasting song “Celebrate” in the musical card, nicely forgave us our rudeness. Last stop was the laundry basket search… Yay! I had found a nice wicker one to replace my aging one. We got through the checkout in good time and headed for the car. Autumn was pushing the cart and I was carrying the wicker laundry basket. All of a sudden I fell, tripping over somebody’s soda can I hadn’t seen…How embarassing. My luck, some guy came running over to see if I was OK. Autumn and I had gathered a small audience, well only a handful of people were staring, but I was mortified.

I quickly got up, Autumn assuring me I had fallen gracefully by the way (how comforting) and we sent the caring guy on his way with thanks. I limped the short distance to the car, not hurt badly but my left knee was smarting a bit.

The good news was the wicker laundry basket was unharmed!


Falling asleep in your Arms ~ By Autumn Sunshine

Falling asleep listening to your beating heart…

I remember smiling as sleep was near

thinking all you are to me, is everything I hold so dear

I told you once that I was safe in your arms of  love

Yes I really am, and from the heavens above

I feel we are so very blessed

For now we have the very best

and  I no longer fear the nights

when sleeping felt not right

I doubted sleep would ever be in sight…

Now I am safe and your heartbeats soothe me

and I can always be

Dreaming and happy before I know it …

You are my hero, you laughed when I said that to you

It’s true, my love

so true…

Did You All Set Your Clocks Back? By Gabby Angel

Here we are again, time to Fall Back! Did you all get your clocks set back? Well, I did and what a fun chore that is…So many clocks to deal with. It is one of my quirky habits, I love clocks and watches…But when the time change occurs? Then, I meander through my house setting them forward or backwards. In this case it was backward, I should have timed myself to  see how long it really took me. It did seem to go on for so long, but it was an adventure of sorts.

I used to have a hard time with remembering…Is it Fall Back or Spring Ahead? Or vice a versa, that little rhyme could be confusing, is anyone with me?  I wrote a post awhile back “Time is a Four Letter Word”, I don’t know how many of you read it. I seriously do love all my many clocks and watches, I still haven’t figured out my “time infatuation”.

By all rights I should be embarassed to admit to owning so many clocks and watches…But I’m not. There’s no shame in being honest, right? Share with the world my odd and no doubt unusual quirks. We all have them after all, don’t we? Please somebody, assure me I am normal! 😉 Well, maybe wrong choice of word…I don’t think I will ever be classified as “normal” by any means.

My twin sister Autumn? Heavens no, she is by far no means “normal” either. That’s OK with us, we both have buttons that state “I Don’t Do Normal”, for real we really do. We found them in some out of the way little shop, laughing ourselves silly and just had to buy them.

I must state here, Autumn my beloved twinnie does not own this amount of clocks or watches. Don’t worry she does have her own quirks though. Maybe better save that for another blog though?

I digess as usual, I was on the subject of setting back our clocks. It means one more hour of sleep on the upside. The downside, it gets dark earlier and winter is truly upon us. Being an optimist, I will go with it being a plus and not a minus. I just have to, being an optimist is good and makes those pessimists wonder why and get bummed out. They can’t  rain on my parade

. So, back to setting my clocks…All done sucessfully. If any of you haven’t rememberd to fix your clocks, time is of the essence! 😉
