pretty stinkin’ good day…

i am pretty stoked right now…went to goodwill and got a bright yellow evan picone peacoat (which i would post pictures of if my stupid pantech jest phone would let me) for $8…i also purchased my first pair of yoga pants ever…i hear they are the ultimate in comfort whether you yoga or not, so we’ll see…also going out tonight to hear a mostly female band called ‘me’ which stands for maneater…

right now i’m also hanging out with the son and his awesome girlfriend…sitting outside on a gorgeous fall day…pretty much a perfect day!

my plane better not crash tomorrow or this excellent day will have been for naught…

(especially since i’m going to meet up with a pretty cool chick (who i only know from her blog) for brunch tomorrow once i hit chicago…)

look what i got…

i'm in love...

i’m in love…

this is what happens when i am left unattended at a trade show…hooterville had their annual ‘sports and leisure’ show over the weekend…through a series of phone pics and frenzied texts to hubbkf this little girl, who is a cocker spaniel/lab mix, came home with me…we have still to name her…our naming process goes like this:

me:  how about (names of 9,000 names)?

hubbkf: no

me:  why don’t you think of any?

hubbkf:  why rush into things?

well, this morning i decided we DO need to get this little bitty a name…she has prodigious output and i would like to be able to use a name when i am yelling at her not to pee and/or poop on the floor…

so, my contenders are aibhlinn (ave-leen) which means ‘wished for’ or ‘longed for child’ (sad, i know…but i am never going to get grandkids), maeve which means ‘great joy’ or ‘she who brings intoxication’ or maddin which means ‘little dog.’   jaxsie is also in the running because her butt has some pretty interesting markings…she kinda looks like she’s wearing short pants…

anyhoo…glad you got to meet the newest member of the fambly…

you better go there and ‘like’ this guy…

or at the very least, just look at some flipping excellent photography…
