Here I sit, in the midst of birthday week, with nothing to say. I know! So unlike me! So instead of thoughtful prose I think I'll just disgorge all the various and sundry things flitting about in my brain of late.
The Weather - We had about a week in the high 90's and only three days that hit 100. Usually we get about a month of that. I've gone weeks at a time without properly clearing the kitchen table because we're dinning alfresco most evenings. I can't remember my gardens looking this good in August.
First Day of School - My nephew (Sib #2's son) started at his new school today. He's a quiet kid, so we're all sending good thoughts that the transition goes smoothly.
BLTs - Now my favorite breakfast. Ever.
Procrastination - I have two huge grants due in early September. Guess how much is written?
Project Runway - Now that the Olympics are over I'll have a chance to catch up on back episodes.
Forty Six - The age I turned on Sunday. It feels exactly the same as forty five, but with tighter pants.
Awards - How long after someone passes an award to you can you wait before spreading the love? Because I am WAY overdue.
Question - If you overheard someone say to your daughter "Don't say that. It makes you sound simple.", what would you think of the person who said it?
Eye Candy - Behold the (literal) fruits of my labors
Aren't you glad you stopped by?
