The past few weeks have brought some surprises and this hasn't been the start to the summer that I envisioned...but then I suppose it's not summer yet! And when I get thrown curves, blogging is one of the first things to go. So since I have a little bit of time, I'm going to snip some snippets instead of waiting for Sunday, when I may or may not have time for more...
It's time for a pedicure. Past time.
Gov. Perry for president? Uh...Head-to-head I'd vote for him over Obama for sure. But seriously, we have to do better than this. I applaud much of what he's done in Texas, but I just don't trust him. But then, trust (in men) is relative. Trust compared to whom?
You can survive in a small town if there's a Chinese buffet.
Please, please...read or listen to A Patriot's History of the United States before you pass Go or Collect $200. Please. (Approximately two of my readers will not appreciate this book. The rest of you will be asking, like me, "Why didn't we hear this in school?")
Can't bear one more Weinergate joke. But you gotta wonder whether he's now sorry he eschewed his name's German pronunciation, not wanting to sound too Jewish. And that wasn't his worst mistake.
I have taken up crocheting again after several years of neglecting the art. Stitching up a lusciously soft blanket for my granddaughter Ava and when finished I'll make one for Donovan.
Lots of things get old. Hospital cafeterias get old much faster.
Watched Masterpiece Theatre's Wives and Daughters this week. It's not Downton Abbey, but it's a nice distraction during the wait for Season 2. It would have been worth it just for the hair, costumes, and decor!
I like cities laid out in numbered streets. San Antonio, I'm lookin' in your direction...
Construction workers should not stop to stare in the 4th floor hospital window at new mommies who are trying to pump milk. This is very bad form.
I do not want to like Golden Grahams. Really I don't. Someone save me from myself.
Have a great weekend :-)
