Awkward and Awesome Thursday

In the spirit of The Daybook....

Awkward:
  • Trying to type this on my laptop, while Petunia (the pug) is sitting on my laptop.  Actually, I have a hard time when I am typing on my desktop computer too.  She likes to sit on my lap and rest her chin on my keyboard.  Sometimes Harriet will join her, and I can't move my arms. 
  • The cost of gas has now topped $4 a gallon for regular, and there is no end in sight.
  • Not getting home from work before 7 PM once this week.  I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband that cooks.  I guess that is also a little awesome:)
  • Harriet and Petunia fighting.  My two precious girls.  And finding new ways to distract them. 
  • Finally got my speeding ticket in the mail.  That is a lot of shopping that I won't be doing.

Awesome:
  • Songs from 80's movie soundtracks.  Today I heard St. Elmo's Fire (from St. Elmo's Fire), Catch Me I'm Falling (from Hiding Out), and Don't You (Forget About Me) (from The Breakfast Club).  And now I suddenly need to see all of these movies.
  • Looking at my blog stats, and seeing people that have visited from all over the world.  Wow, that is just so cool.  It is amazing that you can communicate with people everywhere from a tiny little blog. 




  • Trader Joe's Vanilla Low Fat Yogurt with Almonds.  YUM!







  • Harriet patrolling my yard.  Chasing away all those pesky airplanes








    • Goldfinches that come to my bird feeder.  Beautiful, bright yellow birds.  I will try to get a better picture next time.  Promise.

    I love when birds come to my feeder. Especially those tiny yellow birds! I am going to have to try that Trader Joe's vanilla yogurt. Does it come with almonds, or do you add them yourself?

    It has a little almond compartment that you flip over and dump into the yogurt. They also make it in other flavors with a little granola compartment. I heart Trader Joe's

    Hi, I'm Erin. I am living back on the east coast after 15 years out west. Currently readjusting to humidity and mosquitos. I love to take pictures and read fashion magazines.... and to talk about nothing in particular (ok, and my dogs).
