I’m having a really hard time organizing my tasks and projects right now…I think I’m feeling overwhelmed with all I have to do. I’m directing Prelude to a Kiss and have a long lists of things I need to do NOW to get ready to open in early November…blocking, lighting, sound, costumes, set…so much to decide and in such a tizzy about it. I spend so much time worrying about all I have to do, I could probably just do it in half the time. Sigh…
We miss our little cat, Puck, a lot. But we think her sister misses her even more. Since her obvious sadness the first week or two, the outward signs have disappeared. But hus was playing with Phoebe the other day and we realized that we hadn’t seen her play like that since Puck disappeared. So, for all of us, we are thinking of adopting another kitty…we can’t do anything until we get back from vacation next week, but that hasn’t stopped me from frequenting craigslist and kijiji.com, looking at kitties…so many out there without homes, so so sad.
As MSNBC’s Way Too Early with Willie Geist was finishing up this morning, the camera turned to a side shot of Mika Brzezinski getting her makeup and hair polished off by a little cloud of assistants before Morning Joe started. Wouldn’t it be heavenly to wake up each morning, get ready to go and pass through a little cloud of assistants buffing your makeup and making sure your hair looks good as you head off to work and life? I would be ready for my close-up all the time!<G>
I love roses. I try to grow them. I plant a bunch, some die, but some live…I plant more, the cycle continues. I now have five thriving bushes. My son planted two beautiful red rose bushes in front of the compost bin and they have thrived. So, last weekend we took advantage of a rose bush sale (50% off!) and bought one more red rose to add to the compost bin bed and a couple of candy-striped bushes to add to the main bed. All well and good, but they all came equipped with the most ferocious thorns I have ever seen…thick and numerous. As a consequence, I am covered in thorn wounds…my arms look as if I did battle with a tiger!<G> It will be worth it in the long run, but ow!
Had to laugh…I went in yesterday to get my hair cut and, in the course of the obligatory chatter, mentioned that I had mentioned in my blog that I was looking for input on a new hairstyle to help raise me out of my slump. She laughed and then told everyone that I blog. Salon One, in Wellesley, MA, new on Linden Street…I saw Diana and she was wonderful. It is a splurge…nothing cheap about the place. I did get a 25% discount as a first-time customer, but even with that, the final bill was considerably more than I normally pay. However, I walked away feeling like a million dollars, so I guess it is worth the splurge on occasion.
