I woke up this morning thinking,
"Hey, I haven't had caffeine in two days and I've slept so well on those two days.
Maybe there's a connection, maybe I should work on eliminating caffeine."
It sounded like a good idea at 6:15 when I was supposedly well-rested,
but by 8am the sleepy feeling caught up with me and I quickly abandoned the "no caffeine" idea.
So I sit here with a cup of tea in hand, hoping to feel a little more awake soon.
Why don't you join me in a cup of tea and some..... grapes?
If not grapes...
I might have a piece of candy or two leftover from yesterday that I'd be willing to share
I definitely have enough leftover chinese food to share with you!
When I order chinese food, I order enough to feed a small army,
but that way, I don't have to worry about what to feed everyone for lunch the next day.
It works for me.
This was my "fortune" last night.
While it was undoubtedly true... the weather was wonderful,
I don't really think that's a fortune.
And what if we were in the middle of a hurricane, or a blizzard, or it was 120 degrees out?
Then it certainly wouldn't be true.
But there wasn't a blizzard
and the temperature was an amazing 60-some degrees with beautiful blue skies,
but the wind... oh the wind it was a-howlin'.
(sorry... don't know where that weird phrase came from.)
the wind was making that kind of whooshing noise that you hear in the movies.
The down spout of our gutter was squeaking and scraping against the siding,
making all kinds of spooky noises.
I had to run out just before bedtime to chase down the cereal boxes that had blown out of our recycling bin.
It was windy!
I thought I'd try to capture the wind by having Julia go outside and run around with this old curtain.
Ummm.... this didn't work out very well.
The curtain was too long and the ground was too muddy,
so what we ended up with is one really dirty piece of fabric that was getting tangled up around Julia's legs.
Maybe we'll revisit this another day.
I woke up this morning to find that the cherry blossom branches that I had put in a vase had bloomed!
Their counterparts outside won't bloom for another month or so,
but it's nice to have a little Spring inside.
Speaking of spring... or spring in my step...
Noooooo.... I did not buy these shoes.
I just tried them on and enjoyed them for a moment or two.
Yes... I did say that I should get a pair of red shoes,
but I wasn't ready to pay over one hundred dollars for them
(marked down from $365!!!)
But they were fun to wear, even just for a moment.
(Besides... I needed that hundred to pay my "no turn on red" traffic ticket.)
Well, now... how was your Valentine's day?
Did you get some warmer weather?
How many lumps will you take with that tea?
"There's nothing as sociable as a nice cup of tea."
