I’m sick – I have an ear infection. I’m exhausted and could collapse.

Except the steriod is making my heart race and keeping me awake.

I want my mommy.

Getting My Way

“Please, I won’t ever ask again,” beamed the little beggar girl.

Miss Hilda* looked down, shaking her head at the ragamuffin. She laughed, but the laughter turned to grumbling, followed by a string of expletives. “Well, there are only 9 days left, why the hell not,” she uttered mostly to herself. “Yes, you can have it, but just this once and only because it’s the end of the year. Don’t expect this next time,” and she sent the child on her way.

As she scurried out the door giggling, the little gypsie thought, “Yeah, right.”

*names changed to protect the innocent. 😉

A Confession

I’m supposed to be reading Captivating, by John & Staci Eldredge, for my monthly study group – which meets next week.

Instead, I caught up on all the Jane Austen I missed in high school and college. I’ve read Price & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, and Emma. All since August 21st!

Needless to say, I’ve neglected reading a spiritual book in favor of classic literature. I’m sure this says something unfavorable about me, but I’m not sure just what. Something to do with procrastination, maybe?

Back from Beautiful California

So we spent a long weekend in Northern California. And it was everything I had hoped. A little of the city, a little of the country, and lots of food. Oh My Goodness!

We went to my second favorite restaurant in the Bay Area (excluding the one that so unfortunately closed). Cafe Amsterdam in Fairfax. It’s a groovy little 5-star dive. It’s now my favorite restaurant – because the other one closed, of course.

Anyway, I had this amazing Dungeoness Crab lasagna. There are no words.
