each day flies past and i never get near as much done on my darn list as i'd like to. maybe because like yesterday, i spent half the day reading "the devil wears prada" - now lest you think i seriously read drivel-ey stuff like that all the time, i'm also reading a book by mark helprin, "freddy and fredericka", and i just finished "the history of love" -- a little bit more of a mind expanding experience. but sometimes fluff summer reading has to be on the agenda! the mind truly gets to relax; and with an iced tea and some snackies by your side -- that is the kind of relaxation i'm talking about.
we *still* haven't downloaded the new product pictures. i have to rely on that lovely man of mine to help me and he's been super sooooper busy...so...i can only nag so much! patience *is* a virtue...(that's my little mantra a lot in life!) he's been teaching at a university this summer and will be in the fall as well, out here in virginia (which means yes, if you deduced that we'll be separated for about 5 months, you are right - but we just aren't talking or thinking about that too much now...shhh...i'll be mopey soon enough).
we watched "ammores perros" (i might not have spelled that right) -- last night and can i just tell you, i was not that impressed; i was super frustrated watching it and ultimately, rather depressed. now, many people recommended this movie and it received lots of accolades...so...what exactly did i miss? normally, art/independant films are mostly what i watch, but this one just did not do it for me...
i also drug out my gocco yesterday that i bought from a friend and realized there were really no directions with it; thus prompting a meandering search over the internet for good directions. i belong to a yahoo site for gocco fans but, i'm such a visual learner that i need directions that i can see, not read. so i'm trying to dig up the readymade issue #12 which is supposed to have good visual pictures in it. as soon as i do that, then i'm off experimenting with gocco world!
the agenda today looks like this: make and drink yummy tea. maybe have a coddled egg and an english muffin. check mail, check blogs, check stat counter - drop off the mister to teach and hit a coupla thrift stores. make some sort of yummy dinner (veggie pizza with not too much cheese or tofu tacos with fresh black bean and tomato salsa...hmmm...) and then try to get down to business with the sprout studio site. we'll see how it goes!
have a great day!
