just some randomness...

such as:

It's beautiful today in Boston--40 ish, clear blue skies....but it is December. Shouldn't it be cold?

Finding gifts for elderly parents is hard.   Really hard. 

I am going to learn to micro-macrame bracelets and necklaces with pottery beads that I make.  Wish me luck. 

Yesterday, I was full of angst around professional matters.   Even though some kind of change is imminent (sp?) I decided that I just have to GO for it in this next round, and see what happens.   So, I am all. in.  No ambivalence.  (At least in this current hour, heh heh!)

I am on a Greek Salad for lunch everyday thing.   Too bad feta cheese isn't vegan.   Oh well.

I lost the keys to my car, and never found them.  This never happens.  I always lose things, and then find them.

One of my committees at church gave me a beautiful mug for the holidays.  It is by far my favorite mug in the world, and the colors are brown, turquoise, red, and gold.   If I had it handy, I would take a picture.  

What fun stuff do you have planned for the holidays, besides maybe some down time in pajamas all day?

I have a gajillion things I ought to be doing, but am not.

Tuesday, I had a "last lunch" with one of my dear friends who is getting married and moving far away.  It is such a joyful time, yet I am going to miss our rendesvous (spelling.)  Note:  I did not have a greek salad.  Instead, portobello mushroom swiss panini.  And a skinny peppermint latte for dessert.

My beloved broke three ribs in a bad fall.  I feel so bad for the amount of pain she is experiencing. Wish I could fix it.   Percoset helps, though.

How ever on earth do you keep up with all the filing?

Time for me to do some of that.

Or not.   Maybe I will go and find some  thread to test my micro-macrame idea.  Volunteer gifts, right?

What's up with you?


  1. Greek salads daily here, too. Yummie.

    I'm going to a wedding in Boston after Christmas!!!!!! :)

    Love the macrame idea.

    I typically buy my parents useable-uppable things. For Dad it was golf stuff (but now he can't golf any longer); for Mom I send flowers or fruit.

  2. I am so looking forward to down time, time to just sit, read, rest. I do wish we had some snow, but aside from a few flurries, nothing here. And it's in the 40's too. I am not really buying much in the way of gifts - my husband has done almost all of the shopping this year. I however, suspect I'll do most of the wrapping. I had a Greek salad last week at the Middle Eastern restaurant - the one that also makes awesome Baba ganoush. (AWESOME).

    I'm sorry about your beloved's fall and ribs. I hope she heals soon.

    I hope that whatever you are all in for is a very cool next thing for you.

  3. That was a great lunch, and the food was not the reason, even though it was good. :-)
    It's very cold here, convincingly December-ish.
    I want the future to be settled for you, very much.
