gorgeous out today -
up early this morning after late night pop-tart induced dreams.
my fabulous siter julie came over at 8:30 as priomised and we drove down the road to pick up a couch i bought from St. Ives rummage sale on my way to work yesterday morn.

got it home, shuffled it into the front room...she said it reminds her of a cottage. i'm happy. thats exactly what i wanted. i'm on my way to some proper nesting again.
for now.

family is just too good. i'm really REALLY blessed.
not always the feel good story of the year, but always a story, and inevitably, always abundant with love. tightly, permanently bound with love.
true for me at least.
i'm very very lucky.

diggin on some steve earle right now and the limitless possiblities of a weekend with few obligations but to my self and my space.
i did tell susan i would help her get some more shrubs planted before tomorrow-so gotta get out there today. nice drive though, and again, the day couldnt be more beautiful and fall-like. after that, it's off to the Redford tonight for 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' followed by pie at The Palace. Amy's gonna spend the night tonight - my first guest since i moved in. gotta tidy up a bit and get some stuff hung on the walls...

dear godchild melanie is sufferin with the end of her first relationship...says she needs closure from him...oh, honey...
i called her to offer an ear. she might join us old gals tonight and hopefully she'll be open to hearing my words of hard-earned wisdom on the subject.
to be 21 again...man...

gotta pick up Mabel from Harley today at some point, or maybe he'll let me wait til tomorrow. sure wish he were...gah, i dont know. a man that wouldnt trade in a cat he's had and given a home to and loved for the better part of a year because he didnt want to get cat hair on his new couch. (uh huh.)
very telling. shit, had i only known his 'cat politics' before i got 'romantically' involed with him, wouldve saved me a bit of time, hey?
(it's all about how you treat the cat, honey).

sunshine is calling me -
gotta plant the lavender still. lots of it. also, got an incredible mandevilla vine. gonna see if i can overwinter it in the kitchen and get it to vine around the window. the blooms are amazing. planted one outside my sister cindy's house in austin last year - should be a sweet connection.
what else? uh, hibiscus, butterlfly bush, cat mint, rudbekia...all waiting.

I wish I lived near you (...well, maybe not in the dead of a Michigan winter...).


I love your updates - you should write more often.
