quelle heure est il?




been catching up on some stuff that needs to get done. and too i have been walking around thinking about how i need to be telling me little stories. how to get back into it? i thought this morning lets start slow and little... poco a poco...

there has always been a little encounter that i think of from time to time that still tickles me. was it in the eighties? there were advertisements for the movado watch, the museum watch. it's a sleek, stylish, sweet little thing. the thing that always caught my eye, as well, is it does not have any numbers on it... it's a part of what makes it so... cool.

well one day i was walking in manhattan and i asked a gentleman passing by for the time. this was when folks wore watches, now we just glance at our cell/mobile telephones. so i asked him for the time, and in midstep he glanced at his watch. i noticed right away it was a movado. i've always thought they were beautiful (and expensive) watches. so he tells me the time, it's 4pm. then he looks at me and i can see he is not sure, and then he says or is it 5pm? i look at him in wonder, and then he smiles and says shyly and sweetly it's a movado.

thing is i understood completely, the watch is lovely, but it's got no numbers on it, it's simply hard to tell. i also thought, all that money for a watch and you can't tell the time...

i must admit, if one were gifted to me, i would not give it back, it's so pretty, who cares what time it is...

...

aha, the weekend has snuck up on us again. do have a sweet weekend. what are you up to? and i see too i have some new visitors who have popped by because Angie may have mentioned that over here, i'm a dreamer... daydreaming is a sport for me and i try to string some words together to tell you about it. thanks so much for stopping by, and i shall drop in on you and see what you're all up to.

have a wonderful weekend and stay cosy... bises!!

Hahaha! I love it Audrey! An expensive watch and yet so hard to tell time on it. They are very nice though, aren't they? I got one for my husband for one of his birthdays, but he wears it rarely for just that reason. Hard to tell exactly what time it is.
I am so very happy to hear that you're starting to tell your stories. Can't wait!
Have a beautiful weekend! By the way, I like your two year plan. Blessings on that!

Lovely, I do love a Movado! I have a watch without numbers and I have to look twice sometimes also.

I also used to have a watch without any numbers... then my current job forced me back into the prompt, numerical data-based world. But I still dream and I still stop and admire beautiful things.

How lovely to be free on a Saturday afternoon! I love these moments, when you just feel so light. Anything is possible. The time is mine, ours.

Enjoy your weekend Audrey, too!
