Things Which Give Me Hope

  • Spotting a flock of 40-odd geese flying north
  • Blooms on the witch hazel shrub
  • Ordering vegetable seeds
Also, drinking cosmos and laughing my face off with a bunch of smart and funny blogger women at Well Read Hostess's house yesterday. Go make some new friends: I Am Bossy, MemeGRL, A Child Is Born, The New Girl, Simply Nutmeg, and Dream Kitchen are daily stops on my internet crawling; now Spinning Yellow, Yellaphant and Mothers of Brothers will be as well.

I'll drink cosmos with them any time.

Bossy likes the Flying Geese thing, unless they are headed toward her aircraft. Better to sit in a living room and drink cosmos instead: agreed.

I am eating my way through the leftover baked goods. Soon I'll be as big as the aircraft Bossy referenced. Watch out Geese. Here comes WRH.

Lori at Spinning Yellow said...

OK, next gathering is at my house and feel free to try out many recipes on us. Why didn't I sneak out some of that awesome cake? It was great meeting you and is it time to order vegetable seeds already? I better get on that.

Hey Ruth - did you get my email on the seeds?

What is your schedule like in march (bwahhh ha ha)

This makes me want to cry. Stupid sick.

I can't believe I didn't try some of that amazing helmet-shaped chocolate torte of yours, but it did look too perfect. It was great meeting you and all the other witty women in the room. What's next?

Stupid being in heart with a boy in Alabama!

AG is sooo going next time.

AG did make the Bossy Road-Trip send off.

AG got skin in the game.

Sniff, sniff, what - I get NO love?

Hey, I thought I was doing well to remember the bloggers who were there, let alone bloggers who weren't! ; )
