It's been quite a while since I've given this blog the benefit of my not-so-brilliant musings, but now that it's been moved to my web site, I'm feeling invigorated about the whole shebang. Not terribly interesting, but then again, it's too hot to think interesting thoughts.
I thought I'd start with my to-do list. First of all, thanks to Jessie Gemmer for moving my blog to this site, where I can write my blog directly. Secondly I'm happy to say WHATEVER LOLA WANTS will be going up soon on Amazon. Love the new cover, and if I can find time to proof it ONCE MORE, it'll go live soon. (Proof reading is the bane of my existence.)
Next, I hope to update everyone on my sewing efforts. I have no idea what possessed me to want to make a gown from the 1740s, but I'm going at it. Bought some interlining for the corset today, and the lady cutting the fabric asked what I was going to do with it. "Make a corset," I replied very casually. She looked at me for a second, then said "Well, I didn't expect that." Me either. This may be an exercise in futility, but I'll learn something, I hope.
For some reason, I feel the need to mention Frieda Fuzzy Paws, alias Grand ChampionCornish Rex, Flower Power. She's about 15-16 now, and we inherited her upon my brother-in-law's demise. She's lost her looks, I'm sorry to say, and she's mostly deaf and covered with ugly bumps, but after living with us over a year, she's decided she likes us. It must have been quite a shock when she didn't have her beloved papa doting on her every second, feeding her by hand, and letting her lick the ice cream remnants from his bowl. She lets our other cat, Mina, and Dazy, our beloved mutt, know who is Queen Bee around here, however. Cat people will understand.
Finally, a huge thank-you to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. You are my idol, madam. Don't apologize for speaking the truth about Trump. And may I thank you for your concurring opinion on the topic of clinics providing abortions. To Sonya Sotomayor, your opinion dissenting to the unequal treatment of minorities during traffic stops was nothing but the truth. Two strong women with enough life experience outside of a courtroom have made a difference. May they live long and prosper.
