We look like a circus, because, frankly, we are... carnies! The whole lot of us!!! Here we are trying to look normal for a second or two. What a challenge! Seriously, what a grand day!

yeah, yeh, yeah... I caught my typo in the flyer.
Spent all day doing wedding prep with Juli. We had as much fun as two crazy women can without breaking any laws.
I am too tired tonight, but, dear readers, soon I will regale you with a tale of Turkish acrobats, belly dancers, candlelight,a hookah and champagne (otherwise known as my goddamn, fabulous job). Stay tuned. It will be a story for the ages. I am really hysterically tired and insanely wired! I need sleep, but I am terrified I'll forget some wedding detail. Ah, it will all be history in less than 48 hours. Off to slumber. Goodnight, loves...It appears my dream boat has arrived...

I'm working on wedding things today, and the flyer for the trunk show, and laundry, and housework... that's all. Chilly today. I am hovered over my little heater. The house is warm for normal folk... just shivery me thinks anything below 80 is cold. I need coffee...

In Texas the sky is generous
as if to compensate for scrubby trees
and all those long, flat miles
that go from one barren place to the next.
Mornings become unveilings of rose
tinged landscapes that blossom
against a canvas of celestial blue.
In the quiet of sunrise, the day teeters
on the rim of possibility
and in my heart there are too many
words and pictures to contain.

You can say anything you want, yessir, but it's the words that sing, they soar and descend...I bow to them...I love them, I cling to them, I run them down, I bite into them, I melt them down...I love words so much...The unexpected ones...The ones I wait for greedily or stalk until, suddenly, they drop...

ghost in the machine

My last three posts for this riviting blog have vanished. Pity! They were so clever! Oh, well...
Yesterday's dreary weather has also vanished and in its place there is a lovely Tuesday. There will be no weather related excuses for not voting accepted today.
I have one million things to do today. The wedding is in less than two weeks! Egads!!! Haven't a clue what I'm wearing. The men have it easy... a suit or a tux. I still have a gazillion favors to make!!!
My trunk show is also fast approaching. I guess I will solder pendants in my sleep. I have lots of art done, but the soldering always slows me down. I'll get it done. And, as usual, the emails for special orders are starting to come in.
Well, I am off to tackle my list-o-tasks... and vote. You should too!

Today, I am the decider...
