it rained today
The power even went out. For an hour. Not too terribly bad. Just bad enough to realize that Wow, I don’t have any candles anymore. I’ve finally managed to get rid of them all.
I love the hipstamatic app on my phone.
Maybe too much.
And I made a new banner today!
Bug is not actually going to dress up as an Angry Bird for Halloween. She’s going to be a bride. I’ll have pictures later.
As you know, my aunt is a seamstress and she had to take this really long pretty train off a wedding dress. It was about a thousand pounds of fussy white tulle—so pretty! The bride didn’t want the leftover train and my aunt didn’t want it either so I sewed it onto an old ratty tank top that Bug had (with help from my mom) and now it’s a bride costume. Bug LOVES it. She wants to wear it every day and drag it around in the dirt pretending she’s marrying the boy down the street. I have to admit it’s pretty cool. I’ll have her try it on tomorrow and take a picture for you.
I do actually have a real post brewing in my head. I’ve been trying to get it here for days but my peak writing time keeps getting taken up with other stuff. So for now you just get a quick check in. Hi!
Wish Hipstamatic was available for my phone. And love the new banner.
I have about five posts brewing in my head at all times. Only about one in five make it to the blog, sigh. I’m starting to think I need to get a smartphone just so I can see if Hipstamatic is really all that.
Also, a bride sounds MUCH more like Bug than an Angry Bird. :-)
it rained here too…yippee.
i need a smartphone!
I loooove Hipstamatic!! Schmutzie got me addicted.
That costume sounds cute! Looking forward to photos.
And BETHANY! YES, you need a smart phone because I believe that you would LOVE Instagram (and Hipstamatic)!
“The power even went out. For an hour.”
I saw that when I was driving to Temecula. There were about 4 stop lights on State over the course of a mile, crossing Florida, that were OUT. Completely out. Not blinking red, out. And all the shops, too, at least from the 5Star convenience store to the liquor store near the post office.
Update from the Press-Enterprise:
“Stolen underground copper wire led to a blackout Tuesday afternoon for more than 11,000 customers in communities surrounding Hemet, Nuevo and Idyllwild, officials said Wednesday.
Southern California Edison workers discovered the copper wire theft and had to shut off power Tuesday in order to make repairs, spokesman Paul Klein said. ”
