Geeeeeeez, is it Sunday already?



Sunday April 29, 2012 _Makeover_New curtains, the first photo is the NEW look, the second is the new curtains having their close-up, and the third is the master bedroom as it once was and under much nicer lighting conditions. Still, I am very happy with the new which have a little silver sheen in some stripes and squares :)) Also, I have three coverlettes which I switch up depending on the season, the new is spring while the old is fall.

 
Tuesday May 1, 2012_April books et al which looks REALLY not good but that's because the bookclub book, see above and which I really liked, isn't in the wee tiny pile, I gave it to a friend, nor is the 600 page art history (postmodernism) book that I am working my way through...slowly. Still, both of these books, The Gnostic Gospels and Celtic Myths, are on my mission101 so YAY!


Wednesday May 2, 2012_This is the owner of Ristorante Fratello where I had lunch with Cindy and Nancy. He came out to clean up a little as we were leaving, I asked if he minded if I took a photo of his restaurant and he said not at all. I asked if he be in the photo and he said sure. Cindy said, laughing, do something Italian and he took this pose, he said like Fonzarelli, yeah? And we agreed :D


Saturday May 5, 2012_The amazing moon which in my photo isn't all that amazing except it is bright. I just like how the trees surround it like it's nestled in a dark bowl. Most of the time, living in a valley is very cool but not when you want to take brilliant photos of an at-the-horizon moon.

I love this.

I was angsting a bit about not seeing the moon last night, but then on NPR, I heard them say that distance to the earth is not unusual and that there was one like it a couple of months ago and would be again, so I relaxed.

I want to read the Four Gnostic Gospels.

The guy was very charming, we will return I'm sure.

And see? I'd heard that this won't happen again until 2025 to 2029, I forget. I can tell you that it is seriously bright, eye hurting bright, and still is BTW. Go look. I know as it shines in my bedroom window all the live long night.

I have put The Gnostic Gospels in the Goodwill bag. I had just read The Teachings of Buddha and found that more compelling. If you want, I would be more than happy to send the book to you, it's small and mailing it would be easily done. My treat :D

Better, much, than sending it to the GW.

Who to believe?!


Thanks for the wonderful offer, but Amazon is sending it to me for a mere pittance. Go ahead and enrich your local GW.

sucker shines in my bedroom window all night long, could not have missed it if I'd wanted to and anyway, it's still out there just not quite as bright so go, look, marvel, another supermoon won't happen again until 2029 or some such long time from now year. It actually hurts your eyes if you stare at it :DD

thanks :)

I like the change too, it's cooler somehow, brings in a little pattern which I especially like.

I'm glad, I like the curtains too, a bit of pattern brightens the room nicely. It was a pretty amazing moon, if only I could have gotten it a little lower in the sky but what I have will have to do :D

thank you, I think having just a touch of pattern has livened up the room. Sorry about your moonshot, next time :))
