Menu of the Day:
Weather: Rainy, rainy 60 degree day. I actually welcomed it.
In my glass: a really good $9.99 South African cabernet with a cool name" Arabella".
What's cooking: Bread in my oven. OH, it smells so good!
Music: Big Head Todd & the Monster's acoustic version of "Bittersweet". I never get tired of this song.
What i am procrastinating about: Still haven't sent that sympathy card, but that's only because the former condo board president's wife wouldn't know me at all anyway and sometimes it's nice to still get a card when all the family leaves and you're alone in your grief.
Good thing: Connecting. I like having friends who you don't see very often but when you do, you pick up right where you left off. I don't have lots of friends i see on a regular basis but i do have these friends who i connect with in a real friendship, even if that means we only see each other 4-6 times a year. My friend Karie (who photographed our wedding) was over last night for wine and the 4 hours went by so fast!
Bad thing: My friend Toni's (who worked with me for 22+ years) husband is in the hospital very sick with staph infection. What's amazing is to find out that my friend i've known for so long is such a rock at work and falls apart in a crisis when it comes to her family. (He's going to be okay, but will be sick for a long time.)
What i don't like right now: Someone once told me (was it you louielouie?) that when you turn 50 you become surrounded with sickness and death. We are at the age where our parent's health is failing and we find ourselves going to more funerals than weddings. And to top it off you are menopausal and not in the very best shape to deal with all this shit in the first place.
About my Obama image: I hope this link works if you want to read part of the article. It's a great article. Obama kicks ass. (You Facebookers will know that i have this quote linked. )
"It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election...People need to shake off this lethargy, people need to buck up. Bringing about change is hard and we've got some lumps to show for it. But if people want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren't serious in the first place."
Ok, that's the Menu: how about we all add our own Menu & answer 5 questions?
1. What would like someone to say about you in your eulogy?
2. What are you looking forward to?
3. Think about a fictional character you really liked. If you could make them a real person, which one would you choose?
4. What TV show is your guilty pleasure?
5. What book are you most likely to read a second time?
