Isn’t everyone allowed to do a few random posts a year? Thanks. I think I will right now. I wouldn’t say that the first few weeks of 2009 have been disjointed, but they have been a little unusual. It’s not every day that you have friends visit for 2 weeks, or your sister/housemate is gone for 3 weeks, or you get new neighbors, or you are invited to 4 ladies events in 1 week, or you have dinner guests 2 out 3 Sundays or you sleep 11 hours trying to get rid of a cold/ward off the flu or have your eye exam done by a 60-year-old man with braces on his teeth or attend a hockey game in GA.
Yup. It’s life in the fast lane, if southern lanes can be fast. I have a photo shoot that I have to get done editing by Saturday to avoid having 2 hanging over my head. I’m looking forward to a new location, a one-time deal. There is a tea house/catering business that is closing down in 1.5 weeks. I have a 6-year-old girl to shoot there. It is the neatest place. Lots of antique furnishings as well as old dress-up type clothes.
Since it is frigid outside (lows in the lower 20s, no I’m not kidding and neither do I care if you have seen negative numbers. This is Georgia, afterall. At least show a little loving concern. ) I couldn’t resist adding a little warmth to my kitchen. Why, pray tell, were these tulips 50% off? They hadn’t even begun to open. Guess they overstocked or something. Anyway, I was delighted to bring them home, since I rarely splurge on flowers.
And I love drinking cappucino in the frigid southern winters. I’ve started making my own mix. I use flavored creamers, instant coffee and a little sugar.
My favorite flavors are the vanilla caramel or the Italian sweet cream. I don’t really know what amounts to use. I just kind of dump until it looks right. And then I find a really fancy jar to put it in.
And what do you think of these bottles? I found them at a garage sale for $1 each. I have bath beads in the one on the right. Wonder what I could do with the one on the left.
And such is the end of the random post. I’ll try to keep them limited this year. Not more than once a month.
