Thursday bows her fetching head...

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a group portrait of the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
We are going to see them tomorrow at the St. Louis Art Museum.
I can hardly wait...


Thursday fades into the weekend. It's been cold cold cold today, although in the late afternoon it warmed up some. I was still cold. I have on layers of clothes and am still chilly. A scratchy throat has been dogging me all day..  I think I've caught something from Cabo. Damn you, man!  lol

I've pretty much lazed around all day and even napped some.  I made some yummy Huevos Rancheros for supper (because, honestly, I napped too long and when I woke up I had only 20 minutes to figure out what to fix and make dinner.  LOL)  Ai yi yi...

I'm reading a book called Fall On Your Knees by Ann-Marie Macdonald and it has suddenly gotten so interesting that I can't put it down.  This is a good thing, lol.  Set in Nova Scotia, often darkly humorous, it's quite a tale. This writer is an accomplished actor and playwright as well. Already I'm thinking I'd love to have lunch with this woman.

It should prove to be a great weekend if I don't wind up to ill to play.  Our plan is to have a nice late lunch and then head to the city just before rush hour starts. We will go to the Museum and see as much as we can and then the concert starts at 7 PM.  BY the time we leave (after 9) the traffic will be back to city normal as well, so we don't have to  hassle with that. We're a couple of old country bumpkins and don't do things like traffic and  citified madness well.  I am looking forward to it's nice having a metropolitan city within driving range so that you CAN go there and do this kind of stuff when you need to. We have been to a couple of operas and several musical functions (a string quartet that we know) and some other fun stuff. But we carefully space it out so that our heads don't explode.  ROTF...

I can't believe this (after all the extra rest I've had today), but I am going to bed early to read and relax and get some extra sleep.  I haven't been sleeping well lately, and it's good to catch up.

Enjoy your evening, friends.

It's lovely to read your blog.
And you know what is so neat?
You say you would like to have lunch with the writer of the book you are reading. I don't know if maybe you really know her and actually will. But i find when i am reading a good book, i feel i'd like to meet the writer. Well here blogging, we might not have tea together, but we can talk.

I feel like jozien too; it's fun to read your blog and I'm still not sure what it is you do that makes that happen. I hope you don't get too sick and that you enjoy your excursion to the city. And I am also reading a book that I think will grab me when I'm a little farther into it. I like it when that happens.

Love you Annie, have a wonderful time at the museum!!!!

I'm sick too, so having a scapegoat (Cabo) might be good! :oP :)


Huevos Rancheros is delicious, had that last weekend when hubby was sick and I had to cook (YUMMY)
