Auditions for table dressing. A new project for v and me when he gets home, which may be today!!! Timing will be delicate as there is a football game this afternoon that he really, really wants to see...and we don't have a TV! He has loads of invitations. He can view each quarter from a different recliner, armchair, or sofa if he wants. Or, he might be able to wait 'til after the game to come home. I think I know a place...
Thank goodness we discovered last year that the Superbowl is streamed live on the computer. He can be bundled up with his treats and watch here while I can be elsewhere in the house (or garden if the weather holds) doing non-football stuff. And he can wear his jammies if he wants.
You know, I want to clarify why this blog even exists: it was created at the suggestion of an old, old friend who found me after a fifteen year loss of contact. So much had changed; her address, she moved to Georgia! me; my name and address, and she found me! The internet happened while we were silent, email, and this blog stuff. Trying to send photos to her was causing problems with the emails so she, a woman who never learned to drive, encouraged me to start a blog so I could load up (gee, I guess that would be upload!) photos of my life and share with her. I just couldn't do Facebook, I'm not that into reconnections. So here we are. I am fascinated that a woman who has never turned a steering wheel can negotiate, and guide me through, the technical confusion of computer communications.
It's turned out to be a great way to keep our friends at the aquarium updated on v's condition. I have been so surprised to hear various of our shift mates say, "oh, I read that on your blog"! Well knock me down with a feather! Welcome all of you who are reading this. I miss you and I miss the aquarium, in that order. I'm really hoping to be back soon. And v wants to visit again also, even though he ended up in the hospital shortly after the last time, it really gives him such an energy boost.
Oh, and just because I love seeing photos from France (especially Paris) since I can't get there:
check out the Valerie Jardin link to the right. She just posted a number of beautiful scenes.
In bocca al lupo. m & v
