*tap tap tap* Is this thing on? Seriously? It seems that the apartment complex that we are temporarily calling 'home' is in some sort of Internet black hole. Our ability to get online and stay connected is a very hit-and-miss thing.
So what have I been doing instead of surfing the information super-highway? Well, I spent a lot of time with the royals toward the end of last week. You've all seen the photos - beautiful bridal gown, neat and tidy military uniforms, hats that leave you wondering. But I bet you haven't seen this -
This gal was on a program discussing the royal jewels. She was not a random, woman-on-the-street interview. No, she is some sort of published authority on the subject. And now my hair style inspiration. From now on when I fall back on just pulling my hair into a ponytail (which is pretty much every day) I will no longer feel that I am lazy or uninspired.
Hubby and I laugh almost every day over the fact that Daisy is NOT a morning dog. She much prefers to lounge around until the crack of noon. You can imagine that the early hour of the royal wedding was not to her liking at all. So I had to laugh when I went looking for her after the balcony kiss.
Looks like Billy Goat had a rough morning, too.
On the home front, we will be finalizing our purchase this week. It looks like things may come together so that we can close escrow a few days early. With that in mind, we were out doing a little shopping this weekend. We are looking for some new area rugs and a patio set. What we came back with was this:
I couldn't resist. It suits me for sure. I think it will look great right near the front door.
