Grace: Issue 54

  1. Looking up, and realizing it's Thursday and - holy cow! - where'd the week go?

  2. Getting sucked into a surprisingly great book (Curtis Sittenfeld's American Wife.)

  3. Finding a few new beads at a show, then spending the week stringing and restringing, and just staring at the pretty colors every once in a while.

  4. Making incremental progress on a big-big-big project at work.

  5. Instigating plans with my best girlfriends that will result in a Friday night Julia Child foodfest to usher in Labor Day weekend. (Considering making madeleines to accompany the tea that will inevitably end the evening - unless I dig up something more manageable and healthy [wishful thinking] in my mother-in-law's copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking.)

Hi Spandrel,

Sounds like life is going well. Hope this week is going as fast as you need it to so that you can enjoy the Labor Day weekend. Was today really only Tuesday????

Hey, Fish. This week alternated between speeding by (deadlines looming-yikes!) and dragging like molasses (waiting for approvals-yawn!).

Although last night I had dinner with some girlfriends and we ushered in the long weekend Julia-Child style. (Yes, just call me a walking demographical cliche!) But we had a blast!
