The sun is shining! It’s a miracle! Well, after a week of rain it feels like a miracle. The sun did come out yesterday afternoon and that was great but to wake up to sunshine in the morning… It’s been a while. And I must spend a lot of time outdoors today, even though I have a sewing project that I would like to finish. Maybe I’ll save it for the next rainy day though.
Since I mentioned nail polish last week I got inspired to go through my collection and I threw out several old bottles that were dried up or separated but I still have around two dozen. I have more nail polish than I have shoes. Is that normal? I really have no idea. Nail polish costs less than shoes but, on the other hand, you change shoes more often than you change nail polish.
I have to show off my newest treasure:
It was sort of a Mother’s Day present. I got a gift card for The Cracker Barrel so we went to the one in Owasso two days after Mother’s Day and had dinner and looked around the gift shop and I bought this. I love cups with pictures on the inside. It feels like something special – a little something extra. Also this cup is actually both dishwasher and microwave safe, which is a bit unusual. The prettiest cups are usually not.
Here’s a NY Times article about food allergies. It confirms something that I have always thought: that a lot of people who say they are allergic are really not. Usually they really believe they are but in fact they merely had a bad reaction to a particular food once or they had symptoms that may or may not have been caused by the food in question or they are sensitive to it but not really allergic.
And a few more blogs I’ve come across recently…
Russ’ Filtered News – lots of news links, very brief commentary; left leaning (It has those annoying pop-up preview things but other than that I like it.)
Yet Another Weird SF Fan – More current events than SF but I like it. I also like the retro Blogger template. I used to think that was one of Blogger’s uglier templates but now that I almost never see it anymore it always makes me happy to find a blog that’s still using it.
3AM Magazine: Buzzwords – a little art, a little pop culture
Thoughtful Gestures – music, conducting and a little science now and then. Great blog!
