A rolling stone gathers no moss

I always wondered in that proverb whether it was supposed to be good to gather moss or not? Is gathering moss akin to being well grounded, putting down roots, and becoming enriched? Or is the moss the gook and baggage you don’t want to pick up?

Well, I feel a little bit like a rolling stone. I have a trip to Norcal and then Socal. The good thing is I can visit family and friends in Los Angeles, but it takes me right up to Christmas Eve. Hubby and I even decided against a tree this year because I was going to be gone. I did buy a little potted pine because I was feeling melancholy about it. Then I came up from the office the other day to see him stringing lights around it. What a sweetheart!


So tonight, I’m packing and loading up the e-Reader for a long flight.

By this time tomorrow, I’ll be in California with Little Sis. I have plans to see Red Cliff since it’s not showing in St. Louis. Other than that, I still need to shop for Mum. I know exactly what we want to get her. Just haven’t gotten my hands on it yet!

    Have fun! And let me know how the movie is; I don’t believe it’s playing any where near Dayton.
