current song: Radio stuff

"It is a photograph of a staircase that I took with my Brownie camera over forty years ago. On the newel post hang three jackets. At the bottom is mine, a turquoise corduroy, with deep pockets in which I used to hide Kraft caramels- I ate them every morning on my walk to school. Over my jacket is my brother Steve's: denim, with a fleece lining. And over that, my mother's stylish brown tweed car coat, an apricot-colored scarf spilling out of the pocket. Late-afternoon sun is streaming in through the window beside the stairs, illuminating the coats as well as three paper bags of groceries resting on the floor. I remember we'd been to Red Owl with our mother, and Steve and I had been given our own carts to select items from our own lists. That's why I took the picture: I was proud of the grown-up work we'd done. Nearly out of frame are the rounded tips of shoes. Someone sitting on the staircase, waiting for us to see her."

Eerie, isn't it?

current song: The Fray

This is from Elizabeth Berg's book Never Change (it's one of the front pages, like the dedications and little quotes and stuff): "This book is dedicated to the memory of John Kirk Farrar. He called himself Johnny K. I called him Johnny K. of the Milky Way. I guess that's where he really does live now. More or less. Once, I was writing an article about what things make the best Christmas presents. So I called John and asked him, 'What's the best present you've ever been given?' He thought for a while, and then he said, 'You know how cats sometimes run sideways?' I said yes. He said, 'That's one.'" 

I just love that.

If anyone hasn't had a chocolate cupcake from B&N yet, go and get one RIGHT NOW! So good. And our chocolate chip cookies (Brandon split one with me today) =) And while you're at it, go ahead and get a frappachino- we have strawberry (highly recommended), toffee nut, chocolate chip, and all kinds b/c it's Frap Fest! lol =)

Isn't the moon beautiful tonight? Go outside and look! When I last saw it (on my way home from work) it looked kinda like this:


I could look at it for hours and it would not be wasted time....Tell me how it looks from where you live. =)
