my life


i’m putting myself in a TIME OUT.  i need to hide CHILL the heck out. seriously. i woke up with a wicked headache with a hefty list of all the things i have to do.  it’s not nice to wake up that way.  i think it is my body’s way of telling me to take a break. i’ll pop back after awhile when things simmer down.  right now, i am feeling intensely overwhelmed & not in a good way. 😦

but before i do, here’s some pix i took of when i visited my dear blog sista a couple of weeks ago.  this headache is a mutha & i’ve neither the energy nor patience to explain all the pix.  i was a bit under the weather when i visited her & her family & she totally made sure my visit was fun & relaxing, even administer a bit of her “mom md” when i coughed or sneezed too much, hehehe.  & oh how i miss her terribly already! whenever we are together, we are always laughing our a$$es off & getting into all sorts of mischief.  when i was there, we crammed in as much activities as humanly possible: did the halloween party at her dd’s school, went shopping for PINK stuff for her dd’s pink-themed b-day party, went antiquing at her fave (& now my fave too) antique mall, created all kinds of arts & crafts & shopped in her amazing studio!  those are the main highlights of my visit…dsc02363-002dsc02371-009dsc02373-011dsc02376-014dsc02377-015dsc02378-016dsc02381-019dsc02382-020dsc02386-024dsc02393-031dsc02387-025dsc02395-033dsc02396-034dsc02397-001dsc02398-002dsc02402-006

until next time, i hope you have a great weekend.  take care…i’ll be back soon. xo mary ann

    Just wanted to let you know that I got my goody Cookies swap package in the mail this evening! The cookies are delicious – the spicy ones with anise/cloves! Y-U-M-M-Y!!! They were perfect with Tea! Thank you so much for the cookies and the sweet extras. I love everything :O)
