It’s been unseasonably warm here -not that I’m complaining, okay, maybe I am- with highs ranging from the mid 60’s to the low 70’s. I’m wary of contradiction; akin to being paralleled parked between enjoyment and apprehensive of the inevitable. Winter isn’t my favorite time of year. So how is it in your corner of the world? Has anyone started their holiday shopping? Oh forget I asked. We can count on someone chirping (bleh, and not even smugly) that they finished theirs in July. I plan to make some gifts this year but have I started? No, I have not and I’ve yet to devise a manner of wrapping and gifting my good intentions. Seriously, maybe I’ll work on this next week. I have a new toy to show off that helps make certain things. Like fringe. Now I have to find things to put it on that won’t look too lame. I tell you, when I grow up, I want to be a grown up.
As ever, here are this week’s entries from the archives. Have a great weekend.
