General doings from sunny Florida:
  • Happy birthday to me. 36 years and still adorable. Yipes!
  • We baked a cake as a family today, but I think we might have baked Niecey's cold germs right in. *sniffle sniffle, cough cough*
  • Great gifties from Sister: Crazy by the Letters and an Eames House of Cards "game" from the 1950s
  • Because Niecey was sick, she didn't go to school today and wear her special pomegranate costume. We still have to take a pic. 
  • There is a hawk that zooms around above the development. I must remember to keep Nephew away, or he could become a tasty snack.
  • I'm sleeping on the softest, snuggiest, most cuddle-worthy sheets ever! I want! (Cotton knit from Target. I'll check if they still sell them.)
  • My back = little pain nuggets. I think the plane did it.
  • Florida water is light green. I rediscovered that today while running a bath for said pain nuggets. 
  • Sister and I played a few games of Scrabble in person for the first time in a long time. We are perfectly matched... we fought for points, and still tied at 287!
  • Whoever draws Tinkerbell for little kids' sheet sets might be "into" the cartoon a little too much. She is in various Vargas girl cheesecake poses all over the pillowcase -- sitting on her heels, laying on her stomach with legs bent and pointed toes, bending over, leaning back, one hand between her cartoon legs, looking over her shoulder... all the while with a flirty twinkle in her eye... it's charming and funny and also a mite disturbing. 
  • I fell asleep gazing at the stars last night and can't wait to do it again...

Whoa! I thought you were a lot younger. Glad you're having fun. Hope that cold doesn't get too annoying.
