This 'n That Thursday

Utter nonsense:

  • All of my medications have "x's" in them.
  • I am obsessed with Gotye.
  • What are those white fluffy things floating everywhere?
  • I am taking my nephews their birthday cards tonight.  Their birthday was two weeks ago.  I consider myself right on time.
  • I cannot believe how much unknown I have in my future right now, and how very happy I feel.
  • I believe it cost me more to take Dora to the vet yesterday for her checkup than it does for mine.
  • She is fine by the way...maybe a few pounds overweight, but very good.
  • Getting hair done tomorrow.  Cannot wait.
  • The Bird and I went to the New York Botanical Garden last weekend...amazing.  
  • I am always hot.  And not in a good way.
  • Coffee creamer made from coconut milk is the bomb.

What our Memorial Day looked like:

You Are Very Happy

Your life is totally together, and you enjoy every day.
And you don't need a quiz to tell you that!
You know how to find pleasure in the little things...
And even when life isn't so great, you have a good sense of perspective.

How about you?  How Happy Are You, Really?

This 'n That Thursday

Before Breakfast Blather:

  • I want to try one of those Cadbury ice cream bars and I don't even really like ice cream.
  • Has anybody ever used any of Dr. Perricone's skin products?
  • I have forgotten what a sunny day looks like.
  • Is Tim Tebow for real?
  • I have a tiny hummingbird that visits my feeder.  Is there such a thing as a dwarf hummingbird?
  • Wait.  The sun may actually be trying to come out as I sit here.
  • I have a plethora of orange shoes.
  • Is "dwarf hummingbird" redundant?
  • I am so exhausted that I think I could sleep for a week.
  • The sun is definitely out.
  • Today is looking up.

Hump Day Haiku

precious peonies
with my beloved babies
make mama's heart soar

A little role reversal...
I even had a flashback to the days when I couldn't even go to the loo in peace.
I would not change a single thing, either.
Not a single thing.

Big Doin's

Aquarius Horoscope
For The Week Starting May 7, 2012

 It is about time to put to work some of those inspired and imaginative ideas you have had lately. Everything that is pending should be settled to your satisfaction this week. Someone or something is being replaced now with someone or something much better and much more practical. Changes made now will work out just fine for you. Changing your own methods now can only enhance your image with friends and/or fellow workers.

Soooo.  I guess sometimes these are more germane.  I gave notice at work last week.  I am moving back to Middle Tennessee after living in New York and Connecticut for the last 30 years.  Just let that sink in for a minute.  I will work until June 30 and move at the end of July.

 My children support this wholly, and I am both thrilled and anxious.  But things have all fallen into place, and apparently, the planets are lining up appropriately.  I am moving to Tennessee!  Squeeeee!

Now, how about you?

Thin 'n That Thursday

  • What old TV show had the town called Bugtussle?
  • Why do helium ballons always want to be in the front seat with the driver?
  • I am feeling a bit of wanderlust.
  • Has anyone finished all three of the Shades of Grey books?
  • I love turkey meatloaf.
  • Did the show with Bugtussle also have a town called Pixley?
  • I do not like the word "bulbous."
  • I have recently discovered coconut milk creamer for my coffee.  It is heavenly.
  • I wish somebody nearby would have a baby for me to play with.  And sniff.
  • I have become surprisingly frugal in my advancing age.
  • Hulk Hogan was on my flight to Florida last week.  It was the second time I have been on a plane with him.
  • The Bird and I once had a flight with Julie Andrews.
  • "Morning Joe" is the bomb.
  • New gutters= no worms on the walk this morning.  Mama is happy.
Any other ramblers want to share?

The one where Mama goes to Florida to work at a triathlon and gets bitten by the bug:

If he won't do it with me, do any of you want to?
