Let It Go, Let It Go, Let It Go


OHG I need a massage. I bet we all need one.

 Flowers for parties, flowers for a wedding, interviewing potential roommates both over the phone and in person, takes it out of a girl.

A word to the wise to the guy who came by yesterday: mentioning that you have never cheated on your wife but you've thought about it is TMI.

And gets you ushered out the door very, very quickly.

I may be small but I'm fast.

Whew.

Back to the wedding.  Though the Northeast corridor may have been hit by a blizzard, we were only hit by highly alarming weather warnings. I arrived home about 7:00pm on Friday to this:

"Snow, ice, freezing rains starting at 5:00am Saturday and lasting till 10:am Sunday."

The bride's last frantic email came in at 1:15am.

I read it at 6:00am, cloudy skies, not a trace of SEVERE WEATHER.

It did rain at 2:00pm just as we were leaving the venue.

Her dream was whites and silvers, crystals, a glam winter wedding. Inside not out.

There we go. No snow boots needed.

Your weatherpeople need to chill.

It wasn't enough to shut down the government on Tuesday, you had to mess with my bride?

  1. Well, she certainly got what she wanted. The arrangements are gorgeous and so glamorously silver! Glad the bad weather moved well north and left you (both) alone.

    Perhaps your applicant thought you might be interested in a little "on the side" and was trying to gauge your interest? Glad you shooed him right away. A good one will come along - hopefully, soon. xoxo

    1. Me thinks it's a perfect complement to greens and whites. Especially this big fat leafed one, whose name escapes my tired brain.

  5. Really pretty Jane. You love those white berries!

    You've done your share of 'interviewing these last months..sheesh.

    Steve's a recent convert to Dusty Miller - he's apparently head over heels!

    1. I do love the tallow berries. I'd marry them if I wasn't already committed to Gus.

      Plus I'd have to fight off Steve...
