The Song of Bernadette
On the pleasant side, the weather is lovely now, cool and fallish. I love the fall. Ah, the pleasures of this season, like lying on the bed with the window opened, watching your new birthday TV/DVD combo, and having the picture stay on the screen without blinking out.
Tonight I have to go to the quilt meeting. One of these days I will have to quit and stay home, or at least, stop being the button lady. I have to work for the entire meeting, I swear, it is like being in the office. It has been a while since we had a really interesting meeting, which means one that included clothing and a fashion show.
This weekend was quite productive for me. I made a lot of deviled eggs for my birthday party, and some marinated garbonzo beans, which some people even ate (Mary the vegetarian), read my book (finished The Painted House by Grisham - very good), and went to my birthday party. The food was excellent, and in addition, Alex brought the video of his appearance on CNN. CNN did a story on visual forensics and used some footage made by Alex and had several scenes of Alex working at his computer - only the back of his head, but still, he was on TV.
Then on Sunday I got up very early, puttered around, and thought about my junky bedroom. He had said that there was another bookcase in the garage, so I hauled it into the house, cleaned it up and stacked it up on top of the other one (against the bathroom wall, only in the bedroom). I fastened it to the wall with stick-on velcro to give us a split second to roll out of the way when The Big One hits. Now it looks some better, helping to create better ambiance for the new TV. I threw away a lot of useless papers - why was I saving them anyway?
Well, time to go set the VCR to record Raymond since I have to go to the meeting.
