I've been a less than fruitful blogger these days. I don't know why and I just don't seem to have the energy to dissect it. So I'll leave it at that.
I was in Austin last week for a couple of days. Austin seems to be my home away from from these days. I make the drive so often that it really only feels like an hour drive when it really it takes 3. This last trip was rather eventful. I got rear ended by a 30-something woman. No one was hurt but she was so emotional that I just felt that I had to hug her. I'm a hugger as any of you who have met me will attest to. The bumper of my car didn't fare quite as well. A quarter of it fell off. She must of hit it just right for that to happen. Anyone know of anyone that works for claims at Progressive (wink, wink) that can make this fix seamlessly?
Houston 175". (And, when I say helped out what I really mean is that I stuck my nose in, floundered around a bit and pretty much was useless.)These books were a gift to thank me, I guess. After passing them out to a few worthy people, i.e. my photo tech that worked as hard or harder than I did, my boss and a few others I'm left with quite a few books. I think I smell a give away. What about you?
I'm furthering my love affair with eggs. I even took some leftover fettuccine alfredo, made them into cakes, fried them then served poached eggs over top. Yeah, wasn't the best use of leftovers. Now, the leftover chili...that was a whole other topic.
With Thanksgiving coming up I will be making stuffed eggs. I love stuffed eggs and plan to mix it up somehow. Maybe, Greek style? A little feta cheese and some kalamata olives? It could work.
I think the signature cocktail this Thanksgiving will be a blood orange sodatini. JR picked up some of his favorite blood orange soda at Costco the other day. This is the only time of year they have it. Usually, he buys 3 cases but this year he refrained. Not exactly sure why but there you have it. Anyway, we've been known to mix this with some vodka and Grand Marnier in the past but we might have to try to mix it up. Any mixologists out there with ideas? Be?
The painting will be done this weekend. I worked on it this weekend. Faces! Bah! Never again. I'm dying here. I worry so much about getting everything right and if the owners will like it that I'm ready to chuck it. Even though JR says it is really good and that it looks like the little guys. yada yada yada. I'm not sure I believe him. Okay, I've said enough about my insecurities as a painter. I have plenty more about other things.
The last of the Halloween candy is gone. Thank heaven! I have no will power against the Almond Joy.
That is all I can think of at the moment. In fact, that pretty much drains my head. I still need to write up a story but that will have to wait a few days. My brain is in presentation mode. One from last week and two for next week. Because I'm not stressed enough.
I promise to stop into to visit ya'll as time permits.
