~Living a life of sophisticated domestication deep in the heart of Texas~

It's Sunday night in Texas and....

....I've nothing really very important to say, but thought I might as well blog.

Yeah, yeah, you're probably right when you ask yourself, "What's so different about tonight? She never says anything very important..." (Hey, I liked the picture, okay?? lol)

What's been happening around here? My usual fluff stuff:

We got some rain. Yay. There are Monarch butterflies passing through the area and it's been beautiful. I discovered that the hyacinth bean vine (ours didn't survive the drought) comes on in October this year. The people across town have the most spectacular asparagus ferns and bouganvillea growing in pots--successfully. I got the marigolds all planted in the terracotta terrace pots. SGTex is working on a natural stone patio area in the front yard, which is going to be spec-tac-u-lar! The Havanese Hellboys absolutely love, love, love the back yard and are having a ball. Sebastian has learned to "sit" and Seamus has yet to learn. We have had some wonderful yard sale finds, including some great house plants, over the past couple of weekends, and scored a terrific table/chairs for the office that absolutely matches (a very masculine, moderne black and silver). That was on craig'slist. And the people delivered it! I discovered Verdi's Raspberry Sparkletini Spumoni is delicious! Work is going quite well. What I should be doing at this very moment is figuring out what's going to be happening over the next, oh, 6 months or so...some exciting prospects, if all goes as dreamed.... ;~)

Nothing else much to say is even remotely remarkable, but I'll mention that it's that *pumpkin spice latte' time of year*, and I've come to suspect that I'm borderline addicted to "I Love Lucy" reruns.

With that, I respectfully bid you a

beannacht agus oiche mhaith!
