It's Friday, so it's time for Virtual Vermut! If we were meeting for vermut this afternoon I would ask you if you know how easy it is to suck up lego with the vacuum? And you might laugh when I say it's a credit to my lack of housekeeping that we have any lego left at all.
If we were meeting for vermut today I would tell you I have proof of global warming and then show you the mosquito that is alive and well in our house in the northeast of North America in January.
Which would segue well into this sweet gift of a print I got for Christmas.
I do love me some Dalai Lama.
If we were meeting for vermut today I would tell you these last two weeks I have slept in so many days but I think I should look a lot better than I do after all that excessive sleeping. And while we're getting physical I would say that even though I am sad to see the holidays almost over, I am not sad to see the end of "Christmas is coming" spam that was flooding my inbox trying to get me to buy Viagra.
If we were meeting for vermut today we would probably talk about the weather, or rather - the lack of it. We spied this sidewalk kamikaze and chased him down the street, just for laughs.
But when we have had a little "weather", it has been either quite beautiful
or dreadfully cold. So cold, in fact, it forced me to try on my new yoga socks one morning as my yoga room is also the coldest room in the house.
But after a few poses the toes didn't stay on and my feet ended up looking like mutants from the olden days when toes socks were first fashionable.
And then because we would both laugh nervously thinking about our old rainbow coloured toe socks, I would show you a giant bowl of tea - David's Tea(s) to be exact. A girl can't have too much chocolate, money or tea! And I would admit that I just might be addicted to the combination of Green and Fruity, Organic Green Seduction and Rooibos de Provence.
If we were meeting for vermut today I would show you something funny I got in the mail this week from my bank -
and say that at first I laughed out loud. I mean, who is financially prepared? And then I was kind of ticked off thinking how audacious of them to send this kind of mailing out after loosing a substantial chunk of my investments this last calendar year.
And then just before you left I would show you something really scary from the grocery store shelf that just can't wait until next Halloween
and wonder if you would dare eat any. I would be too afraid I would glow in the dark. And you would go out into the cold and I would head over to Kate's at The Catalan Way because she got the King in the holiday cake yesterday so she is in a celebrating kind of mood.
