A Few Thoughts

I just switched to the new blogger. I need to get used to this.

Anyone visiting our house needs to watch out for the "tree line." This is holding up George's beloved willow tree that is leaning to one side after the October storm. I think we clotheslined a few delivery people before he put this sign up.

I miss pomegranates. I got sort of addicted to them and then they went out of season. They sell the seeds in a bag, but that is just not the same.

Maybe today I will clean this pile of papers off of my desk. This goes back pretty far. Hmmm... I've got some Christmas cards in here... this stuff can't be that important. Maybe I'll clean it tomorrow.

We're not candy, even though we look so fine and dandy...

I finally found this public service announcement from the 80's.

I'm still here. I just haven't had much to say.

I can't believe it, I won something from the Susiebadoozie contest.

This Magic towel grows. Just add water.

Now Skippy has a beach towel that's just his size.

what's up

Skippy and I are camping out at my parents' house for a while. We're getting some huge work done on our basement, waterproofing, because of a ton of leaks down there. Since I work from home, all the noise and stuff on top of Skippy barking at them would be more than I can stand. So I'm here until I get notice that they are done.

I was looking forward to getting on the road yesterday morning, with a hot cappuccino from my favorite local coffee shop. Instead I decided to go with Starbucks. Remind me not to get the vanilla latte again. It tasted too much like warm milk. We just got ourselves a Starbucks in our part of town. The girl who was supposed to wait on me yesterday morning was going on and on about a long story with her coworker friend while I stood there and waited. The manager keep giving her a look which she was completely oblivious to. I guess it's the same everywhere!

ok, here's something

Thanks to Susiebadoozie I have something to blog about. She wants to see pictures of the inside of people's cars. So here's my '99 Civic, nothing too fancy, but it gets good mileage.

I spilled Starbucks coffee on my car last week, and still need to clean it off. I love the idea of getting a coffee and then taking my dog for a walk in the park. But you'd be surprised how hard his ten little pounds can pull on the leash once I get out of the car, with coffee in my hand. I already had my coat cleaned.

three blog posts in a row

I've resolved to be a better blogger this year. It's day three. Does this count as a post?

happy new year and stuff

Hey, I was wondering if everyone is switching to the "new blogger." If you did, what do you think about it? I have not. I fear change.
