HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COLBY!!!
Today my middle nephew, Colby, is 16 years old!
He will be driving a truck soon.
That's crazy! I remember when he was born. I was in middle school. I went to see him when he was a wee little baby. The first time I saw him, he was in a swing. I couldn't believe he had BROWN HAIR!
He is such a handsome fella now. And courteous and athletic, too!
Happy Birhtday, Colbster. I love you.
Thanks to all of you who read and commented on Steel Magnolias. How fun! And you youngsters who haven't seen it - rent it. Now. It's fab.
I'm trying to get into the whole blog every day thing... I don't know... the problem is, when I do that, you get this randomness. You like? I feel like I like that when I read other people's blogs - but I feel like my own randomness is... weird.
For example, here is my musing for today:
Real Simple. I LOVE this magazine. I have tried stopping my subscription several times, but like highlighting my hair - I always go back. I just got my new one. Can't wait to dive in. I see lots of Red and Baby Blue, which I think are the perfect Christmas colors. I'm starting to think about being open to the idea of the Holidays approaching. That whole "summer is over" denial thing is starting to wear off. I wore an actual coat to work today! And I saw a local news reporter doing a "they're getting ready for snow!" live shot. Goodness.
The first thing I have to do is tear out all of the annoying stuff from the magazine. You know, the 47 cards trying to get you to subscribe (um, hello? already do. thanks.) or trying to get you to send someone else a subscription. Those get thrown out. And anything else that is made of that cardstock. I hate that stuff. Keeps me from flipping happily through my magazine, ya know?
So, I'm looking forward to gutting it, reading it, and most of all - trying new recipes! Confession: I keep my Real Simple magazines. How very not "Real Simple" of me!
