Musings - February 2017

Books: Traveled this month! And so, on the plane I finished Not in Kansas Any More by Christine Wicker and started Broken Open by Elizabeth Lesser. (Oddly both were from 2005. Apparently I'm living in a time warp.) Also discovered a new Social Media app for me "Quotle" which lets you capture and share great quotes from books. 


Gratitude: Walks with kidlets and puppy. (He's a fan of being first to make sure there are no "dinosaurs" and that we are all very safe. It involves a lot of barking.) Quiet nights of planning the next move. Fun with friends. The gorgeous amenities of a luxury hotel for business. 

Listening: Radical Condor podcast, The Fan-Damn-Tastic Marketing Show podcast, Clients from Hell podcast and lots of The Pretty Reckless and Elle King. 


Perfume: I forgot my Library of Flowers  Kirimashi Air for travel! So I went without. But while I was actually at the event, I started using a small sample my mother gave me from La Gram Russe's collection, Modern Muse. 



Random: Fun! Went with Roxanne to a painting class one Sunday. There was wine and snacks. And using the same materials, we created completely different pieces. (Mine is the one on the pale background; hers is the one with the dark background.)  

Stress: Work stress - trip to Orlando for a few days. Fantastic room. Good trip. But out of town for days with the Herd in others' care. I missed them!


Watching: Emerald City. (Newest binge). Shadowhunters. (Apparently reading about magic makes me watch it.

Take-away - Enjoy where you are, even if it's not Kansas, because you may not ever be there again.
