ok fine.

so i guess you guys aren't as
familiar with pan dulce as i am.
this is what it looks like on the inside.

it's a soft bread,
slightly sweet,
with a simple crumb topping,
not unlike a struesel,
but not as crumbly.
in a word:

oh, and reason number two
to smile this week?
i found me a persimmon,

and it was just as sweet as can be.

my mexican treat.

one of the reasons i am happy to
be back in texas:

the mollete.
i call it the concha (shell).
and i only eat the pink ones.

happy sunday, peeps
i'm off to make the babies
banana pancakes.

but it's too late now.

i'll let you know if it's as
good as all the hype.

mixed moods.

ever have one of those days?

there's not really anything wrong
but you just don't *feel* right
in your skin?

the house is quiet
(everyone went to schlitterbahn)
and i am restless.

so much to do, but not sure
where to begin.
work at 2.
home after 11.
(it's a good thing i enjoy work!!)

note to self:
stop looking through australia
photos. it doesn't help!!

if you clean it, it will come.

i finally cleaned off the desk. :)

and the creativity flowed.
used all my starbucks stickers.

this one was fun.
i used a quote from the movie august rush:
"i believe in music the way some people believe in fairytales."

and this one was the perfect way to
put some of my fortunes somewhere
where they wouldn't get lost.
i love fortunes!!

so, what's up with you?

to fund my cravings

i will get a pic of the girl one's
hair tomorrow...if she wakes
before i go in at noon.

seems summer brings out the snore bugs.

weekend of possibilities.

working in the yard this weekend.

i have two days off starting tomorrow
so technically it's not a really weekend
but just a weekend and a monday off.
so is it a week-begin?

either way.
we'll be in the yard.
pulling weeds and planting grass.

damn... i'm old.

went out with work girls last ight.
it was a co-worker's birthday
so we made a girl's night of it.

too bad i was the DD...
because i could have had more fun if
i had a malibu and diet coke. or four.

we rode the bull
(yes we did)
and i wanted to go again,
but apparently i enjoyed it more
than the others.
must be the redneck in me. :)

anyhow, it was fun to see everyone
out of work,
fun to get out late,
and come home even later.
but i'm too old to do that again
without alcohol!!

thanks, girls, for a fun night
even *if* this white-ish girl
can't dance without liquid courage!!

new addiction alert.

the bff introduced me to these bars...

and now i can't get enough!!
the oatmeal raisin bars
taste just like oatmeal cookies.
oh yum.

so, other than working and eating
there's not much to tell you about.

we went to see the happening last night,
i totally called that movie.
i'm just sayin.

okay, bff leaves today to go back to florida...

the only reason i am okay is because she is coming right back!!
she's moving to texas, people!!
so now our plan will be complete.
can a girl really be so lucky?

i think so.

one after the other.
maybe with some pizza.
and a movie.

like being a daddy.

and he's good at it too!!

loves, babe!!

'twas a persimmon.

and they are yummy.
at least they were down under.
haven't looked to see if they
sell them in my neck of the woods.

(obviously these pics are old)

so my sister graduated last night.
i am so damn proud of her.
she is doing what she wants to do.
she is a such a bundle of potential
at the moment, i can barely attempt to
grasp an idea of what she will become.

it feels like summer

and i miss my australian fruit barn.

it was so easy to get yummy fruit
when we lived down under.
lately it's been hit or miss
on what i bring home.
fruit is supposed to be SWEET!!

and fries are supposed to be soggy.

at least they are in my world.

i'm just sayin.

a loud-ish stacatto
from a
outside my bathroom window.

REALLY, woodpecker?!
on my ONE day off where i get to sleep in a bit?

we finally finished painting downstairs.
we still have the hall upstairs,
but i think that'll be taken care of
later this summer.
by the boy one and girl one.
i'm all for child labor.
when it means i get a pretty wall
out of it.

& who the heck tore MAY out of my calendar
i wasn't finished with all that i needed to do
before my summer began!!

now here it is 7:03 pm and
i still have to clean off my desk
so i can start playing with my supplies again.

oh, how i miss getting my hands all
