Vacances d'hiver

Well, that's what I've decided to call it. Winter vacation sounds better than "I'm still way under-the-weather & trying to solve the riddle(s) underlying that annoying state of affairs."

A big ciao-meow from Julie the Cat. She's feeling better. To prove it, she bounced, leaped, pirouetted, & twirled around the market delivery person this morning. So I gave him a larger tip than planned. After I stopped laughing & coughing.

I plan to post about St. David's Day (1 March) & Carnevale (Tuesday, 8 March). I hope to be back sooner.

Update/1 March. Oof. Well, nothing is going to happen today. If you're on Twitter, feel free to join me in re-tweeting Libya news/Wisconsin news. And more. If nothing else, following Charlie Sheen (he just joined Twitter, uh oh) should be, uh, weird.

Another update - Friday, 4 March - yes, I should just post, I know I know. Um, here's an article I put on my FB page last night: The Argument You're Having With Yourself About Charlie Sheen. I feel guilty & I "unfollowed" him on Twitter after a day.


PS: Mabrouk (congratulations) to Tunisians & Egyptians!

For a minute there I thought I was on someone else's site! Very funny that these two are communicating on your comment sheet. Sorry you're sick and without flowers, Susan. Soon it will be spring and I hope you'll be spring-y.
Take care -

Julie the cat- I have discovered that I can stick my head in a bucket of water and blow bubbles.. its a very important way of cooling off on a 40c day! ( and a LOT of fun)

oh! And I discovered Midnight and when I went "WOOF" Midnight leaped into the air and turned into a furball!

WOOOF!! (oh word verification= Petskive.. whats a kive??)

Angie Muresan said...

Susan, I'm so worried about you. This has been dragging on too long. Sending hugs and love and good health.

Giulia said...

Hi everyone. Thanks so much for your good wishes. Nothing new to report but I will post soon - at least mentioning the appearance of adverts & an amazon store on each site. Then we will not mention it again. I held out as long as possible - that's all I can say. I doubt I'll make much $ but if it will buy some medicine it'll be worth the embarrassment.

If it only buys a season iTunes pass to Mad Men, well, that's something.

Cheers & have a great weekend. (Friday, 4 March 2011)
