I love sunny days.
I took Miss Party out for a walk and we revelled in the sunshine.
I did not revel, however over all the dog snot on my dashboard.
Miss Party likes to snarf and sniff at the vent when we drive and it leaves quite the mess.
Starbucks is celebrating their 40th anniversary today!
They have new cups and sleeves and I think they are giving away freebies this afternoon.
Brenna and I are going to go double check after school.
Aside from the serious decaf addiction I have, I am also addicted to my friend's oranges. Gregory's ranch has killer oranges. I love the Gregory family.
Did you know I am older than Starbucks? I am officially forty-nine this month. Also known as "forty-fine." Along with this wonderful age, I am studying a book called Menopause and the Mind. Need I say more?
Did I mention I love sunny days?
I haven't heard from my Italian child for a while. She did comment on the blog post about tortillas and asked me to bring salsa with me when I come and visit. Can you imagine salsa exploded all over a suitcase? Me, either.
I can imagine me bringing the new Jodi Picoult book, Sing Me Home on the plane. Easier than salsa.
Which brings me to the thought of flying...
I WILL BE ON AN AIRPLANE HEADED FOR STINKING ITALY IN ELEVEN DAYS!!!
Now is when I wish I had a Kindle or a Nook. I'm sure I'll pack at least 3 books. Or buy one in the airport. I love buying books in the airport. It's a big treat. Yes, I am easily pleased.
It's cold in Italy. Lauren wears tights under her jeans. I don't know if I can do that. It makes me feel a little claustrophobic. Like I couldn't have any room to eat pasta. Better to be cold and eat pasta, I always say.
I think I'm starting a collection of dictionaries. (remember. the post title is random-ness)
It began innocently enough when I found the dictionary from the 30's at the thrift store in the mountains. I got another one from my Gregory friends. This one is a whopper!!! And it's not going to get maimed in any way. Then I went to the thrift store by my house and managed to hit the 10 books for $1 day. Oh, yeah. I found 3 dictionaries. I have begun to tear one of them up. It will be o.k., really. Once I show you what I've made. Really. I'll post about that one soon.
I couldn't think of anything to post about for a couple of weeks and now I have tons of ideas, which is good. I think that is the Menopausal Mind thing going on. Plus, the sun is out and the weather has warmed up 20 degrees.
I love sunny days........
