I could feel myself being sucked into a very bad mood this morning - and it was unavoidable. It was like the gravitational pull from a black hole and there was nothing I could do to save myself so may as well embrace it and enjoy the ride.

The only thing that might have helped would have been to stay home and focus on the backyard and my sad little garden. And spending $1,000 at Canadian Tire, Zellers, and Rona, maybe Costco. Yes, all that and perhaps a glass of wine with a splash of pomegranate juice. You know, for my heart.

And RIGHT NOW, trying to tune my guitar, I have just broken my first f$&*ing string.

But now it's 8:30 and I had Pat and Brenda (and kids) over for dinner and Paul is outside while I type trying to put together 2 really inexpensive adirondack chairs and I can't hear one word of complaint...through the thick glass of the back doors...and maybe because Futurama is on...really loud.

So the day did end much better than it started. Take that stupid black hole.

Well Megster I love the new look of the blog.
I was on kodak gallery today at work and showed my co-worker your picture.
Her comment?
"Wow I hope I look that good when I'm that old."
Don't know if that will make you feel good or encourage you to open another bottle of red.

Oh yeah, I'm having a drink.

I hope you told her I was 50 so that she thought I looked fucking amazing!

Ah my co-worker is 23 and she thought you were in your early 30's.
Love the new stools and the picture of Paul (he just looks so cute and cuddly in that photo).

Meg said...

I am VERY happy with your co-worker.

Yes, Paul is very cuddly, that's why I keep him around. Well..that and a few other reasons.

She is a good kid.
She thought I was around 28 when she first met me.
