I’m learning an entirely new operating system at work over the next couple of weeks.  And I still have meetings to attend.  And busy work to complete.  And my brother and his family just arrived in Western Washington.  And tomorrow I’m hanging all of my work at Tony’s Coffee House and still have two pictures to frame.  But, I’m surviving…with coffee, careful time management, and the occasional Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.   If only that escape button had the power to do what it said!

Dear Adrienne

Dear Adrienne,

Thank you for hosting the Monday night BBQ with Jimmy (a.k.a The Shady Chef) and for the divine chocolate truffles, of which the butterscotch were my favorite…

Please share the recipe with your Lush sisters. 

And cheers to all the others who signed the cork on Monday night!  Thanks for Penguin wine, Karen (a.k.a. Scribbles) Morse!!

Citrus Hand Grenades

David says they look like orange hand grenades.  I think they just look freakishly unnatural.  As I backed away from them in disgust at Fred Meyer yesterday morning, Kim grabs two of them, puts them in front of her eyes, and walks slowly towards me.  I couldn’t look at her!  I’m not squeamish, but there’s something about these oranges that I find disturbing within my schema for fruit!

Rain?  In Western Washington?  Noooo. 

Andy and I took a shopping trip to La Conner on Saturday after test driving some cars.   I got the pleasure of sharing this enormous Henry Weinhard’s umbrella with him, which had been aquired from a golf tournament sometime ago.   It’s no wonder everyone assumes we’re a couple.  But, rest assured World, we are still happily besties and more like brother and sister than anything resembling a “couple”.


It’s a tradition.  If there’s a birthday in my department, the entire management staff goes out for lunch.  I think this is a great tradition that should continue as long as I’m employed.  This ensures at least 11 birthday lunches a year, which generally tend to be a tad longer than the normal lunch break.
