HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!

Let’s take a moment to honor women in all walks of life all over the world, and, those of us who are women, let’s take a moment to toast ourselves and each other!

Let’s work together to make sure the world is a more humane, intelligent, and compassionate place in which to live.

Let’s work for positive change – not gender-based, but humanity-based.

My meeting yesterday was a disaster. This is someone I hoped to hire – yet he didn’t listen to a word I said, look at any of the material I brought, or take anything of what I wanted into consideration. Excuse me, I’m the one paying here, and I will NOT be railroaded into something that has nothing to do with why I’m here simply because it’s easier for YOU.

Next.

I was so drained and upset afterwards that I couldn’t do anything. So now I’m even more frustrated and I have to be at the theatre all day.

And there’s STILL no hot water.

I finished Judi Hendricks’s book Bread Alone and loved it. I recommend it. It’s more intelligent than chick lit, more like romantic comedy, but very compassionate and real. I did know exactly where it was going at all times – no surprises – but I wanted to know how the characters got there.

I also read Carolyn Haines’s Splintered Bones. I liked it, for the most part. She sets up a famous character who comes in as a sort of deaus ex machina at the end, which bothered me. That’s not a device of which I’m particularly fond, and it’s difficult to pull off. She handled it better than most, but I think it was supposed to be funnier than it actually was. I liked the writing and the characters enough to want to read more of her work. I’ll try another book of hers at least.

Today, I’m back in the theatre. I’ve got to get some info out to the music producer before I leave, and I want to get some writing done.

Charlotte is percolating, and I think I’ve got the next few issues roughed out in my brain, at least. And, hopefully, I can do some work on Ransagh.

The cress didn’t make it. :(
The wildflowers are doing well, as are the thyme and culantro. One of the pots of pincushion flowers has a few shoots, and one tiny Iceland Poppy is venturing out into the world.

Was your late lamented cress of the Water Cress variety? I understand that Water Cress needs running water, as in a brook, to survive. If I was really motivated, I would try to give it a proper environment in my garden. I'm thinking of creating a pond in the backyard this year, but although a running stream would be lovely, I don't know how elaborate I can get.

Didn't realize that Elsa is a torti. Samantha is,and I adore her. They have a distinctive personality to go with their unique coloring.
