My Big Fat Blog: As usual my luvlies, here’s how my week went, in no particular order:
1- I caught myself bitching about the economy when a tea light candle took an hour to melt my bluebell forest wax melt in its little ceramic burner.
2- Gotten into the habit of taking delivery boxes and leaving them on the floor unopened – just to sadistically watch the cats try and find the opening. Wow, I’m sounding like that old lady talking to the hospital wall. Taxi!
3- I bought a workout at DailyOM the other day entitled “Go sleeveless in fourteen days” – After day three I thought, ‘Wait, sleeveless? I’ve never been sleeveless, that’s never been a good look for me.’ – since when I have been a style queen?
4- I’ve taken to buying firewood from Amazon, as I’m no longer going to call a family member to bring in wood for me because I’m afraid of arachnids in my wood pile. See? resourceful little wench when I want to be.
5- It’s mid-September already! Doesn’t it feel like you’re in the Matrix every time you look at the calendar. ‘But, wait, what the-‘ is my phrase of choice lately.
6- Expecting this next week of dry weather to be the last. It takes me at least a week to psyche myself up to get out there with my loppers and drain pokers. Mostly because..spiders.
7- If anyone has any ideas on how to make roasted vegetables crispy, then I’m all ears. I have failed thus far.
8- I woke up this week with a claw mark from my right eye down to my jaw. Not sure whether I did it, the cat did it, or whether my house is haunted. I’ll keep you posted!
9- Did I mention my second book is out Nov 29th? Well it is, and you can pre order it now. So ya know, hint hint nudge nudge.
