Random Thoughts ….

I thought I’d share some random today.

While the rest of the world is getting their sh*t together for the holidays, I’m not.

But, I do have thoughts like these running through my head:

•  Maybe Christmas won’t come this year since I’m not ready for it.  Hmm … that reminds me of The Grinch story.  CHRISTMAS CAME ANYWAY.

•  I keep waiting for my arm to feel better before I do all those Christmas things … and it just isn’t happening.  (Although, Paul Newman tells me the swelling is going down so I’m sure I’ll be feeling better soon?)

•  Why is my Super Power the ability to read people?  I can read people in a scary, amazing, way.  And, I say it’s scary because I don’t always want to know the things I know about people.  And no, I’m not saying I can read people’s MINDS, but I can read people.  Who they are, what they’re about, their strengths, their weaknesses, their integrity, their authenticity, their sincerity …..  And, often, I can do this within a millisecond of meeting someone.  I can’t think of a time when I’ve been wrong with my “intuition.”  Sometimes, I wish I WAS wrong.

•  Do YOU have a Super Power?  And if so, what is it?

•  2015 has been a difficult year for my family.  Well, I guess I should say the last six months have been very difficult.  There’s been a lot of *stuff* going on with various family members.  I’m more than ready for 2016.

•  I’ll be in various L.A. locations over the next several days.  (I’ll probably be on L.A. freeways most of those hours?)  I’m not sure if I’ll have an opportunity to write a post while I’m away from home.

•  I’ve fallen in love with a band called Pacific Air.  I listen to them a lot while I’m editing photos.  It’s nice background music.  I can think, I can concentrate on my work, and I can listen at the same time.  (I have a playlist titled “Editing.”)

•  Paul Newman informed me yesterday I did not “rip my fat” to create the hole in my arm.  I’ve been telling everyone I ripped my fat because it does sound like a very unique injury, doesn’t it?  Apparently, ripping your fat is not a medical term.  Hmmph!

•  I’ve always loved the color red.  It *might* even be my favorite color, although I hate to play favorites in case the other colors get their feelings hurt.  Anyway, I fell in love with a photo of this red bag:


Actually, I fell in love with a different red bag.  But, the first red bag didn’t have a shoulder strap.  I can’t carry most purses so they HAVE TO have a long strap.  I started searching for a bag somewhat similar to the first, but with an optional long strap and I found the one pictured above.  It wasn’t available in real life yet, so I “preordered” it.  I had no idea when it might actually BE available, but yesterday I got a shipping notification.    I can’t wait to see it in person.  If it’s too heavy, or I don’t like it in real life, I’ll return it.  But?  I’m hoping it works.  I like the fact it has several pockets.  And yes, I do have a little bit of a handbag addiction.  It’s okay, because I never buy clothes.  Right???

•  I bought Fred a stuffed reindeer.  He carries it everywhere with him.  It’s adorable.  I’ll try to get a photo of Fred with his reindeer soon.  (I haven’t been taking photos because I’m trying to let my arm heal.)

I hope you have a happy weekend!

    I love red bags! And red boots and shoes and other things red. It’s not my absolute favorite color….well, sometimes it is 🙂 I’ve been looking for a new bag and can’t decide if I want to get another color or stick with a brown or black this time. Don’t tempt me with Dooney and Bourke because it’s outside my price range! I mean it!

      Oh, Denise … it came today.
      And, I have to say it is the most beautiful shade of red I’ve ever seen on a bag.
      Not an orangey-red.
      Kind of a deep blue-red.
      And it is gorgeous.
      I think they have an option for monthly payments on it for the holidays?
      And I think it’s available in a smaller size which would cost less also.
      I’ve never even been attracted to Dooney & Bourke stuff before but this is truly beautiful.

    I also, am liking that bag. And I’m not a bag person – the less I carry, the better. But that is tempting,

      It’s really beautiful.
      It is big … I’m getting used to that.
      But, it does have a lot of pockets.
