In My Life


I know, I know, sudden radio silence from the self christened "constant blogger".

Life.

"Lincoln" on Friday night. My. My. My. What a man. I shall turn my attention from the Tudor period, my eternal interest, and begin reading some American history.

Saturday night a friend over for pizza and "Argo". Turned into pizza and our lives. 

Sunday, the gym, and a surprise stop across the street at an Episcopal church for a 2nd Sunday in Lent service. I am not a church goer, but I have been watching a diverse crowd of people coming and going as I'm leaving the gym. Sometimes they carry baked goods. My interest was piqued.

So, clutching a water bottle and an IPod, dressed in a sweatshirt and sweat, I entered, sat and listened.

My favorite part? The "peace be with you" greetings at the end of the service. I drank up each handshake and wish for peace and gave it back wholeheartedly.

And the rest of my day? Not exactly peaceful but full and fun and ended with a red carpet Oscar party at the pink house.

Movie posters, women in tuxedo shirts, a child dressed as Pi, another child with decided opinions on the music, particularly Shirley Bassey.  Not like.

I forgot my camera so have no amusing pictures to show you of the party.

But I can show you pics from my preparty.

You know I had my own stylist.




  But not my own towel.

Peace be with you.

  3. Sounds like a great weekend. I adore the pink house. Oscars are so boring the only way to enjoy it is at a party. But it was a good year for movies. Those stylists are keepers.

  4. So, what did you think of the winners and the clothes? We had a wee party and loved every minute, well not the Lincoln joke.

    Thinking of you. xoxo

    1. I only wished more movies/people could have won since there were so many good people/films in the running.

  8. I'm not a church goer either, but it's always a good thing to keep an open mind. And wasn't your New years resolution to say "yes" more? Well, there you go, then.
