He said Carnival is underway in Venice.
Wish I was there...
|I don't remember where I saw this, but it has two of my favorite things:|
hot pink on a French chair and a blue * white lamp.
So, I have spent way too much time on the computer, lots of time reading, and generally being a couch potato. Roads are refreezing now that it is mid-afternoon, last knee shots postponed till next week, and getting out the next couple of days looking doubtful. I have nine-million projects, but for some reason, I can't get motivated to do much. I did a little busywork cleaning this morning, then kind of said the heck with it. Wearing sweats all week is OK, though. I did put on my face this morning because I frighten myself after a certain point.
|I think these paper placemats are from Layla Grace. They look cheerful don't you think?|
I don't generally post other people's photos on this blog, but since I have spent so much time looking at stuff the last couple of days, I found a few I thought you might like.
|This photo is from Christopher Radko -- yes, the Christmas ornament guy.|
He is multi-talented. I found this photo on FB.
Our governor, Robert Bentley, is giving a news conference. I will give him credit: he declared a state of emergency Monday and mobilized the National Guard, so we were not as unprepared as Atlanta, Georgia and some other areas. Some of my neighbors had to spend the night elsewhere, and they got home about midday.
|I used this photo with permission from my son.|
It is a place for "Hot Pot" in Beijing.
Soon I will share his photos and commentary on just what Hot Pot is -- stay tuned!
My cousin in Atlanta finally made it home after 13 and a half hours on the road in the middle of the night. Alabama has search aircraft looking for people stranded in less populated areas, and tomorrow the game-plan is to try to continue clearing cars off the roads.
|Isn't this a cool island? |
It is available for a limited time
from Williams-Sonoma home.
I like all these drawers.
The stories of the kindness of strangers to strangers have just been incredible. Maybe I will share some I have heard about another time. General Russell Honoré (of Katrina fame) needs to get down there and straighten everything out. He said huge metropolitan areas need to have a centralized form of government like New York City, where one person at the top can make executive decisions for the entire area, as opposed to all the little puppet kingdoms with competing little fiefdoms. You tell 'em, General!
This is a great magazine, I think.
There is a lot of talent in Little Rock --

I would have it messed up pretty quickly,
but it does look nice, doesn't it?
Hope you are staying safe and warm.
