I heard it suggested that there might be a thunderstorm tonight. Put that in the Total Bonus column.
Did our taxes this weekend. One of the problems with making great money again is how much the government wants a bigger chunk of it back.
My hands look a little like I've been bathing a cat. I just need to convince my rat, Lenore, that my flesh and her nails do not make velcro. I won't drop you, pretty girl, I promise!
I am completely unimpressed with the current trend in fabrics and patterns at clothing stores. Brian and I went to JoAnn's and picked out a lovely print in taupe/olive green silky rayon, as well as a pattern for a spring dress. Take that, retail fashion! And I will have something that fits my height!
New spring shoes and in other news, commando girl finds lacy bits at Frederick's that make her happy. Retail therapy is sweeeeeet.
Also sweet, and damn tasty, is the Rum Carrot Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting I made this weekend. What made it exceptional was grinding my spices fresh, and real ingredients like actual vanilla extract, regular cream cheese, and butter. Why cut corners when you only make something like this once in a great while? I'd rather have one rare awesome treat made with top shelf ingredients than more frequent stuff made with substitutes.
I have been wearing a pair of ankle boots with a 2 1/2" heel for the last few months to work and when we go out. They have been the most comfortable pair of shoes I've worn in ages. And I had forgotten how much I like the way I look and feel in heels. So what that it makes me 6'2"? I need something with a good size heel for the spring.
The winds are currently out of my sails, a change of course is indicated, time to tack.
