i've been melancholy as i'm sure a lot of you have - watching helplessly a the tragedy in japan. sure we can send money and prayers and good wishes, but wanting to do so much more pulls at me. along with the rain, the gray skies, the runaway menopause (i'm too young to feel this damn old), the time change, the...the...the...it seems too much you know? just too much.
and i know others are there too. so, anyway - the people that responded to my pay it forward giveaway so far - i've lost track of who was in the top five and all that..so, you know what - you're all winners. it may take me a while, but...i will send you something from my list. if you want to do a pay it forward, then so be it - have fun with it.
there were also some that want to do a spring swap but i see that se'lah is doing one currently and i don't want to take away from hers. so....let's not do that right now. i will brainstorm and maybe we can do a early summer swap instead.
i've been obsessed with pinterest lately. i think it's a great marketing tool that you have to apply and they put you on the waiting list - it gives it that extra boost of desire or something. so many pretty things and so little time. look me up if you are on there so i can see what you love too.
today on my ipod - just the way you are (bruno mars), three more days (ray lamontagne), north dakota (lyle lovett), only the young (journey), will you love me tomorrow (carole king), life in the storm (edwin mccain), wonderwall (oasis), rainy day blues (willie nelson & jonny lang), love train (the o'jays), a thing called love (bonnie raitt)
