I'm so tired. This job is wearing me out. I mean, not like those of you chasing rugrats. Well, actually, maybe, because my job never hugs me or says it wuvs me. Ha, ha. Quite the contrary. It says, "Think you made it through another day? Mwahaha! Just watch what I'm about to throw at you! Don't even think about ducking!" And then, splat. Mud pie. With gravel mixed in.

I'm sorry. I hope I'm not offending anyone with this. And you can go ahead and tell me I'm crazy for thinking chartreuse and pink look cute together. But if there is one color combination that makes me want to ralph, it's pale blue and dark brown.

Having typed this, I realize that my living room utilizes those colors...which may be part of why I detest our beige couch so much. Must go home and figure out what kind of sofa pillow covers I can sew.

I'll take one please

Ten months ago tonight I danced with my grandpa at my wedding. And today he turns 85. Happy birthday, Poppa!

I'm working on this book that I lovelovelove. Yesterday I finally got to meet the author for the first time. She came to visit from the state she lives in.

In Chapter 1 the heroine drinks fizzy pink French lemonade. So I bought a couple of bottles to have at the meet and greet.

It's such a lovely summer beverage.


P.S. When the book is ready I'll tell you all about it ... I think you Twilight fans especially will love it.

Massively dynamic

For my birthday, Chris was so sweet and got me, among other things, a pair of shoes I didn't know he knew I wanted and season 1 of Fringe. Every night this week we let ourselves watch one episode. I'm so addicted! Though I still have to turn away for the gross parts.
