Why Hello There!

Promise I didn't forget you.
Last weekend was incredibly busy, my sis-in-law and I did something we never, ever do! We spent time together all four days (Friday thru Monday!) and didn't have an enforced Nana Sadie Rose booth making us do it! lolol

We went out to eat every single night (except the 4th when we had a potluck cookout), I didn't track WW points at all, I ate things that I wouldn't normally have eaten (ex. IHOP pancakes, grilled hamburgers and chips, wine 3 of 4 nights!), and ended up losing 2.6 pounds for the week. Don't hate me. I'm not supposed to be doing this. (sigh)

So the other reason you haven't heard from me is the enormous pack of alligators I've been fighting for several days. I've been really busy and focused on that, so not thinking "blog." Alligator-wrestler Nana.

Tonight, I'd just about had it. I was hungry, I wasn't in the mood for healthy, I wanted S.P.L.U.R.G.E.

I went to Barnes & Noble Cafe. I won't tell you what I had, but dessert was front and center. It was good. 'Nuf said?

And then I bought a couple of things, headed home to do a few chores, and now, as soon as I finish this post, I'm settling down with:

IF you were listening to All Things Considered tonight on NPR you know about this (it was a true "driveway moment" as I sat in front of B&N with the A/C running in 100+ degree heat to hear the entire interview). Jane Brocket blogged about it today, too: James Taylor and Carole King, together again.

Oh my. Wish I could have been in DC for that concert!

The soundtrack of my youth.

And yes, they only get better (as do we all...)

Oh and the newest Artful Blogger, too. Eye candy and new blogs to visit. I'm sure you notice something else in that photo, right? Well...Here's the other end, chasing the camera strap:

And in two shakes of a lamb's tail, he had it! See?

I just love meezer heads, where you can tell their kitty ears were folded before they were born. Such a sweet little spot to scritch! Dear pictures of your boy!

The Tonk is such a beautiful boy & he doesn't seem to mind being eye-candy via the camera. Keep the photos coming! {{{HUGS}}}

Aw, cutie pie.


It's true what they tell you - sometimes you have to eat more to lose. Sometimes. I try to keep that sometimes word in mind. ;)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
