I’m still seeing yellow and black at every turn. It’s probably that I’ve just become so hyper aware of it because I dreamed of these two colors every night last week.
Now it seems that everywhere I turn, I’m seeing yellow mini pick-ups and I’m expecting some crazed teen to start chasing me in one.
Yesterday was one of my most favorite people in the world’s birthday. Lupita.
I made sure I got her some yellow roses and a card and I took her some cookies. It was nice to catch up with her. She turned 75 and she’s still up and about, and as feisty as ever. I LOVE that woman!!
I have a confession to make. I watched Celebrity Apprentice tonight. (winces)
Before you judge me, the part I love is to see how creative people get in trying to market and complete their tasks. The in-fighting and the board room frankly make me cringe, but I watch it grudgingly.
We are bracing for what is supposed to be a large winter storm overnight. Hubby went to work early, frozen foods and pillow in hand. He decided to tough it out by sleeping on the floor of his office so he’d be there in time to open the building and wouldn’t have to travel at his normal 4am, when the roads would probably be the slickest. I can’t fault his reasons, but I have troubles sleeping when he’s not here. I feel like I’m “on alert” the entire time. I have the hair-trigger-barking dog and my son is here, so I’m certainly not alone. Best of all, I have the ever vigilant and highly aggressive attack-cat by my side. (She’ll suffocate you with her fluffy fur so you better stand back!!)
Otherwise, a brief update on my weekend, since I couldn’t possibly have bored you to sleep yet. I mean, I’m still awake… so maybe you are too! I baked cookies on Friday to take to a party on Saturday. Sadly, it was not as well attended as we would have liked, but the space was awesome. This family had converted their old stable into a party palace, complete with bar, lights, stereo system, theater a full bath and tables galore. It was THE best place to have a party. Couple that with their own private soccer field, basketball court and a beautiful house and I can see how it would be party central.
Saturday night, as we were coming home, we happened across a house fire in the historic district of a nearby town. We ended up getting stuck in a parking lot by two pumper trucks and watched as the house that had been shooting flames out of it’s windows, was tamed by the local fire department. It was strange, because as much as I felt uncomfortable and sad for the family, watching the fire department do it’s job so well was very interesting.
When we got home, we watched the first episode of the first season of Torchwood. I’m not sure I’m going to like this, but I’ll give it a chance. Seems to me that where Dr. Who is a mainstream kind of “family” entertainment, Torchwood is gear towards a slightly more adult crowd. I guess we’ll see how that experiment goes.
You already know about my Sunday… 75 year olds, Celebrity Apprentice and snowstorms… oh my!
I hope everyone stays safe and warm.
OH! Before I go… what the hell is up with the search engine that lets you post what you are watching/reading/listening to ?? It’s been busted for a week now.. c’mon guys.. Facebook wouldn’t slouch this way!!
