Birthday #2 of the week goes to my oldest son, Brendan, who turns 21 today. He's a senior in college and getting ready to make his mark on the world. With pants on, I hope.
Ha! So glad I was clueless about iOS6 coming out and haven't upgraded, especially since none of the news I heard on Twitter was good. Last night my husband was showing me the tumblr on Apple Maps, and we were cracking up. Sometimes it's good to live under a rock.
I just decided this morning, while walking my feisty dog, that he looks like an Ewok. Right?
The other day as I was walking him "up the bluffs" which is a private, steep drive for 3 sorta secluded houses, I looked up to see a coyote cross the road in front of me! He wasn't more than 10 feet away, just quickly and quietly crossing the road. That's just a little too bold for me even if he was hoping I wouldn't notice him. I don't think The Ewok saw him; he certainly didn't react at all.
Here are a couple of pictures from last winter of a long row of Crepe Myrtles that I loved. They were stunning in bloom, but I was equally entranced by the beauty of their twisted, smooth-barked branches (because they've never been mercilessly hacked off by landscapers) as I sat at the red light for many, many minutes at a time, usually on my way home from the chiropractor. I was completely crushed to drive past
them this morning to find out that they've been entirely decimated by whatever construction project is underway. It's probably about widening the congested intersection, since they were on the median, but whatever it is, I'm sad. I assume they're doing everything they can to protect the enormous, gorgeous Live Oak on the adjacent corner, and I'll focus on that---until it, too, succumbs to the ravages of progress.
Evidently there is a new PBS series on Sundays at 9 p.m., right after we finish watching Once Upon a Time on ABC. It's called "Call the Midwife." It's sounds like something my home-birthing self might enjoy, and it might be something to entertain us while we wait desperately for "Downton Abbey" to return!
Ever since it appeared on Netflix instant watch, the kids and I have been watching the 1st season of Once Upon a Time over again. We can't wait for the new season to start in 9 more days!!!
What are you watching on TV these days? Waiting for any new seasons to start?
