Pillows and such… June 15, 2008

Posted by Donna in Uncategorized.

I kind of like the idea of enlisting my readers to suggest topics. Remo suggested I write about “Why Women Like So Many Pillows on the Bed.” It’s actually quite simple, cuz it pisses men off! ūüėČ It also serves to distract us from all the¬†socks and underware the man probably left on the floor!¬†If the man (heaven forbid) should decide to make the bed he’d have no idea where to put all the pillows. And if¬†he tries to plop on the bed to relax when it is “arranged”¬†he will probably be in deep doo doo! Then there is always the question of what to do with the pillows when you want to sleep. It’s just to mess with your head. But in the end, it just really looks nice don’t you think? We do!

The outdoor wedding I spoke about last time turned out to be quite nice. It was hot but not unbearable. There was a pleasant breeze off the water, plenty¬†of¬†shade,¬†and the smoke from the brush fires in NC didn’t make their way there until the last hour or so of the wedding.¬† I still think, anything short of an outdoor BBQ or intimate party, I¬†will plan indoors. The stress of wondering what mother nature has in store is more than I want to deal with when planning a huge event. Then again I suppose it has a lot to do with where you live. Some of you probably live in areas where your chance of bad weather is far less than mine. It’s certainly more cost effective to have things outdoors and it can be beautiful when the weather cooperates.

Okay so here are some random photos from the outdoor wedding and the lake last weekend:


Checking in… June 10, 2008

I’m trying to write regularly but I don’t want it to start feeling like it’s a homework assignment. Do you ever feel like that? Part of the problem is I just need to cut myself some slack. I mean this is my blog and if I just want to¬†ramble I should be able to do that, right? It’s not like I’m going to have red pen marks all over my page. Must be some post traumatic stress from a 5th grade English teacher or something.

I have photos to share from the lake but my camera battery is dead and I am still looking for the charger. I purchased a video editing software (dummy, there is probably a free one on my computer somewhere) but I need a degree to figure out how to work it I think…that or a few free afternoons to figure it out.

It is a gazillion degrees outside and I am HATING it but I feel guilty for being miserable when I see the floods, tornadoes, fires, etc. everywhere else. I know I should be grateful that my hot flashes mixed with a heat index of 105 is nothing compared to what some are facing. (And Remo, YOU chose to live in AZ so your heat stories don’t count;) Worse yet, I am complaining from the air conditioned study where I am typing this. Menopause is seriously messing with my head.

I have an outdoor wedding to attend this weekend. It’s still supposed to be hot but now the fires burning in North Carolina¬†will also be a factor. The thick smoke and smell are right out my back door. Ugh! I feel for the bride and groom. Sadly their only hope to cool things down and ease the smoke filled air might be the thunderstorms they are calling for for the weekend. Oy!


The Lake June 4, 2008

I decided to make a trip to the lake tomorrow for a few days…just me and Charley (my dog). Jess (my youngest) is actually meeting me there so the two of us will float around aimlessly on a raft collecting harmful sunrays or healthy vitamin D depending on who you ask.

Randy is on call this weekend so he can’t make it. I have two weddings and a Myrtle Beach race this month so it’s now or never….well, maybe not never but now or not til July.

I also have work I need to do there and other stuff I¬†need to check up on¬† so that’s my excuse for going. I guess I’ll bring my camera and see if I can come back with something worth blogging about.

I am trying to work up to video blogging but I am only now getting used to putting my face in public photos. I’m not sure I could handle a video with me in it. Maybe I will start as the voice behind the camera. Anyway, it will probably take me months, if not longer, to figure out how to do all the fancy editing, adding music, credits,¬†and such. So don’t hold your breath.

Anyway, wish you could join me at the lake…
