the joys of a head cold

One of the only fun things about having a head cold is losing my sense of taste. Suddenly, that no-sugar diet is doable and last night I was amusing myself by downing handfuls of wasabi peas....... what strange and spicy things will I eat today?

Sometimes, it's enough just to love.....

Reasons why I am awesome

Sorry, but I feel like blowing my own horn today.....
  • I have two beautiful kick-ass kids that I constructed, nurture, and inspire.
  • I take good pictures.
  • I write good words.
  • My heart is almost always in the right place and I love utterly and big.
  • My hair.
  • I love discovering the unknown.
  • I get people excited about stuff, lots of stuff. Sometimes stuff I didn't think I had any interest in. Getting excited is fun.
  • I talk to everyone, or try to anyway. I meet some pretty awesome people this way.
  • I bake really well.
  • I run half-marathons for charity.
  • Just one month ago, a famous photographer told me he had to take my picture. And he did.
  • Did I mention my hair?

Why I am happy this morning

  • Some very nice kid cuddles
  • Waking up to my kids giggling and wearing my bras over their pyjamas
  • My daughter, closing the fridge door after helping herself to a slice of pizza, saying, "yum pizza for breakfast". Frat boy.
  • The sunshine and the cool breeze on my balcony, drinking coffee and listening to the faint sounds of a Marmaduke movie that I do not have to watch
  • Knowing that today both my parents are home
  • My son joining me briefly on the balcony to see what I'm doing, hug me, and say, "I love you Mom".

feminist thought for the day

Women are crazy, and I am the one at the front of the parade waving the flaming baton.....
