Yes, it’s my birthday. Somehow, this news has leaked. (Heather? Karen?)
It roared in with house shaking thunderstorms, destructive hailstorms and ferocious winds. What the hell do you think the Universe is trying to say here?
These trees that line my driveway, turned green and have now been reduced to
But my neighbor’s huge, huge Bradford Pear now looks like this
And that is only part of the tree…
I’m exhausted since I pulled “watch for tornado warning duty” and had to deal with no electricity and a tired and achy little boy who had fillings done on his teeth last night. He came running down the stairs at two a.m. when the hail sounded like it was ripping the house to shreds. We have a LOT of west facing windows, including one two story one that triples the noise! We had no electricity and had to hunt down flashlights whenever lightening struck the sky.
So, today, to pamper myself, I took the gift certificate that this lovely person
My sister, Jana, gave me…
I walked through Barnes and Noble and faced out every Deadline Dame book, ran my hands over the books lining the shelves and earned a few strange looks from the employees stocking the shelves.
Yes, I was making a wish that my books will start being on those shelves. <G>
Oh! And I bought these!
