I’m off to see The Wizard…

Sunday, January 6th, 2008

Yes, I will be out of pocket the next couple of weeks because, as I stated, I’m off to see The Wizard. This is code talk for I have two back to back important meetings in far off lands which will keep me very busy and unable to hang out on the computer every night and into the wee hours of the morning… Well, unless of course I get insomnia which I often do at these meetings and can’t find anything good on HBO, or can’t find anything good to buy on QVC or HSN. Which by the way, I will admit being guilty of while having insomnia.

If you can’t sleep, you might as well shop.

I don’t think I’ve ever “home shopped” during normal hours, it’s always been sometime around 2:00 a.m. There should be a law outlawing shopping networks and infomercials between midnight and 6:00 a.m. Don’t they know the only people buying into their snake oil are those that are delirious due to lack of sleep?

You just can’t think logically at 3:30 a.m., at which time you begin realizing that you just can’t live without those gold hoop earrings… Or zit zapper... Or casserole dish with wrought iron holder… Or special hangers that guarantee no pointy shoulders… Or lip plumper… Or chenille robe…

Yes, I’m busted y’all – those are just a few things I’ve purchased while an insomniac. It’s not my fault. The Wizard made me do it. And cable TV.

Anyhow – I’ll check in when I can, and who knows – maybe I’ll persuade myself to write a blog at 2:30 a.m. rather than shop…

In the meantime, I’m going to leave you with this picture of one of our lavender fields I took last spring. I am so ready for spring… I’m not a cold-weather, winter person. I need flowers and sunshine!




This is the very beginning of the bloom season, as spikes and buds are just beginning to pop up. In case you’re wondering what that copper thing is sticking up in the back of the field, that’s our ‘still’ which is used to distill the lavender flowers for essential oil.

I’m already homesick…
