just 2 things
# 1 : the reason i can merrily blog away almost every night is because i'm not shopping, or going to parties. we were invited to a very fancy cocktail party this evening, but it seems i prefer to be home, making chicken parmesan ( how retro is that) , walking the dog, and blogging.
# 2: i was nearly rendered speechless at work today ( for those of you who read this blog, with its run on sentences, no time for capital letters or correct punctuation , this is how i talk. readily and swiftly. ) but when a customer returned the 3 arrangements i had made for her house, i called her to see what i should change. everything, i was told. "did i not know she had changed the colors of her lampshades?" huh? the new color ,i was told, was a terracotta, santa barbara color. huh? "you would probably call it tan" i was told. suitably chastened, i redid the containers as directed, put on my coat and hat and came home. here are a couple of shots of the new arrangements. they will probably be sitting on my work table tomorrow for another redo. ah, christmas, 9 days and counting.
