1.

Nothing beats sleeping during a thunderstorm.  In bed is the best place for hearing the rain on the roof and the thunder cracks and booms.  We had a thunderstorm this morning.  It was glorious.

2.

I've spent lots of time and money finding the perfect odorless hand lotion.  Cetaphil is It.  Pricey at about $12 a bottle, it's worth every penny.  Not too greasy, doesn't sting, and has absolutely no odor whatsoever.

3.

So, I heard about the blog, Mary Is My Homegirl, and some buzz about GIFs.  GIFs are moving pictures on a blog.  I'm obviously not there yet.  But I swear I saw his gorgeous face on that tumblr/blog today.  Is a tumblr a blog?  

Anyway, anyone who doesn't love Alan Rickman or at least his voice, has issues.  I have never taken such a hardcore stance on anything like this before.  And I have never been more serious.

4.

I've written about my great love for Gladys Malvern's historical fiction for children and young adults.  Her sister, Corinne Malvern is one of my all-time favorite illustrators.

You may recognize her work from such books as:







Every time I read that last one to Jill, she makes me put her black patent leather Mary Jane shoes on her, because of this page.





5.



StayShape jeans from Eddie Bauer.  They look terrible with those shoes, I know.  But I have them and they are my new faves.   Perfect for Pears.  That's what they should be called.  Wouldn't you know Susan has similar pants issues?  If it fits in the hips, it's huge in the waist.  Don't know where she got that from.

I happened to be at EB last night, because it was the last night to use my super special 25% off coupon and I had $25 in Gymbucks or whatever they call them at Mr. Bauer's house.  Susan was with me and I made her try on a pair of these.

She was ecstatic!  Never before, since she since she outgrew the adjustable waist department, has she found jeans that fit in the waist and the booty.

Thank you, Mr. Eddie Bauer.  Now if you would just stop making curvy fit jeans with hip-whiskering, and faded thighs, you would be my BFF.  And if you made your miracle jeans in colors, you would be Susan's BFF.

Linking up with Hallie and her beautiful baby boy, Charlie.

  3. Ack... blogger just ate the beginning of my comment! The page refreshed and it was gone. Anyway, I was saying that down here thunderstorms in the spring can be more scary than soothing but it's still nice to wake up to one. And I LOVE Alan Rickman!!! Have you ever seen Truly, Madly, Deeply? It will make you cry the big tears of the ugly cry! I would sit and listen to that man read the phone book. Seriously.

  4. Alan Rickman is of The Awesome. From Die Hard to Harry Potter and everything else in between. *sigh* Love.

  5. Sleeping (or snuggling) during a thunderstorm is the epitome of happy around our house too! Love the illustrations. But totally a Doubting Dennis when it comes to skinny jeans and pear shapes. I agree to trust they work on your pear but I don't think they would do mine any favors. ;)
