Beautiful

September 30, 2008

Simply gorgeous, she is…  Those cheekbones, those eyes, those lips…  Time to invest in a Louisville Slugger.

This is a view you might find riding MUNI on a Sunday afternoon… if that Sunday happens to be the Folsom Street Fair.  Read the rest of this entry ?

More proof I was born behind my time

September 30, 2008

So, back in the day (1900 to about 1940) Sears sold houses – entire houses – in their catalog:  floorplan and all construction materials included.

I’d gladly take either of these beauts, nestled in the hills and trees of my vast Kentucky tract.  How me:  all grandiose Southern plantation-y on the outside; sleek and modern on the inside.

Riiiiiight 😉

Bedrooms are a little tight in the lovely Magnolia, so I’d blow out a wall to create a Master Kid-Free Zone Suite.

If I have pissed you off…

September 29, 2008

… rest assured, the Universe just kicked my ass for you.

I just totally biffed it on the last step coming down the escaltor.  Wearing 3.5″ heels.  I twisted my ankle something fierce, it’s swelling, and I feel something grindy going on in there.

Ok – Let’s go back to talking about pretty things

September 29, 2008

So cute.  So reasonable.  I love.  I can’t wait to someday have a dining room again.

And some others that are so cute, so reasonable and OH SO ME 😀

Damn… CB2 does up their sales right!

Guest Post from Haley regarding Sarah Palin

September 28, 2008

Haley and I were discussing politics on the train on the way home this afternoon.  I told her that her dad confessed he thought Sarah Palin was kind of hot – crazy, but hot in a hockey mom librarian kind of way (insert huge eyeroll) – and this was her reaction:

“I want to call him and put my hand through the phone and reach through to the other side and slap him in the face!”

I told you my kid was brilliant.

My heart is heavy

September 27, 2008

This morning my dearest equine friend told me that her days of being Super Horse are drawing to an end.  Her hocks are finally giving out and she’s officially getting old. 

I can’t tell you how much I owe to her.  I have taught so many lessons on her; so many students have experienced so many amazing “firsts” on her.  She’s a very special animal.  Beautiful, talented, smart, challenging and most of all – loving.

Today was the first time we spoke of her retirement and I feel like I owe it to her to make sure her days are still useful and happy.  She will never be happy to be a pasture ornament – she’s a worker bee – she likes having a job.  Now her job needs to be lazy trail rides and even more kisses.

We’ll try some arthritis treatment and regular exercise.  I hope more than anything that she’ll still be around when I go to Kentucky.  She was born there and I would be honored for her to spend her retirement with me there. 

I know Miss Haley would be thrilled to have her to explore the hills and dales…
