missing my daughter

Only 530 days (!) until this lovely young lady returns
from Cambodia to once again lounge on my sofa.

I wonder how many days she'll stay before
she and her husband are off on their next adventure.

today's front pages

My new favorite web site.
The Newseum displays
daily newspaper front pages
in their original, unedited form.

What's going on in your neighborhood?

A friend of mine recently discovered
sold at our local ALDI discount store.

. . . the gorgeous beauty brand that’s been picking up awards, out-performing big names and causing a storm across Europe. It’s hard-working, feel-good beauty at prices you really won’t believe.

. . . full of all the same fabulous, luxurious ingredients you’ll find behind
more expensive labels, making it one hot beauty secret.

Val, Leslie, Marty and I have been using these products
for several months now and really like them.

The good news is they are incredibly inexpensive and
the better news is they will be on sale this week.

things that nourish us

". . . That’s because sharing the things that nourish us helps to fill an empty place. Sometimes that place is the stomach. Sometimes it’s the heart. And sometimes, the best times, it’s both." (From Real Simple Magazine January 2010 The Honest-to-Goodness Friend)

Thanks Debbie and Dave for "nourishing us" with a delicious dinner Saturday night.
