A Post! It's a Post!

Actually, Barb's mom, but I call her mom, too:

She collects Phoenix Bird china. She has like a billion pieces. It's awesome.

YAY, tomorrow is Friday.

I'm actually liking the working early/working out in the afternoons thing again; it's been years since I did it this way, but seriously, the early morning hours go by so fast and then it seems like the whole day is free, even after a workout. Not that I did a lot today; just a few weights and then the treadmill at a good incline (4.0). I seem to be getting back into a more reasonable shape (i.e., less lumpy), but still can't seem to drop any actual weight. I keep looking at the picture I put of myself on my Twitter home page and wondering what in the hell happened to me (menopause)...

I need to increase the amount of time spent on the weights, but this gym is a LOT more crowded than my old (crappy) one was, and it's hard to get some of the better machines. :P

Churro on the back of the couch, looking out the window:

When we go to New York, we MUST go to this bar. This is an absolute MUST.

OMG, it's only SIX WEEKS AWAY!!!

And this link is courtesy typographer, who Tweeted it. I laughed, and cried a little... (Seriously, is the median age of the American Congress six?)

Bo. On the grass:

And if you don't take a picture with the TARDIS we are going to have words, Missy!

Oh, you KNOW I'm taking pictures of me in the TARDIS!!! :D

I love that link to the cartoon. I'm trying to share it to FB so my sister-in-law and therefore, my brother, might see it, now FB appears to be as down as LJ. *headdesk*

That's some gorgeous porcelain.

As I said, that blog made me laugh... and cry.

She really does have a lovely collection. I love them.

They won't get it, mind you, but I forwarded them the link anyway.

My mom has my great aunt's dishes, which are gorgeous. I don't want them, mind you. Porcelain scares me.

Barb and I have a lovely set of good porcelain, so we don't NEED to inherit Mom's Phoenix Bird (although there are a few pieces I'd love to have someday), but I'm not sure where it's going to go. And it's only one of her collections of good china, too!

I don't have any nice porcelain. I have the stuff I got at garage sales. :D
Jul. 30th, 2011 12:36 am (UTC)
We got ours at a garage sale (well, estate sale, most of it; some pieces from other places)...

Jul. 30th, 2011 01:43 am (UTC)
There was some lovely porcelain at the estate sale we went to two weekends ago.

Sometimes you can get some smokin' deals at those things.

We haven't done a serious yard saling morning in a while...

If we'd gone back on Sunday, perhaps. Most everything there was a collectable or antique, and the dealers running it knew it.

you MUST go to the bar

that is a boatload of china

cute pets
Jul. 29th, 2011 03:17 am (UTC)
Yes, indeed! We have to go on Sunday, if possible, for Doctor Who Sunday, even! (If possible!)

And that's not even all of it, just what's in the top portion!
Jul. 29th, 2011 03:27 am (UTC)
very cool

and that scares me
Jul. 29th, 2011 02:48 am (UTC)
I haven't tried to post yet, but at least I can comment. I can't wait to meet you guys. Things may get complicated by me needing to go help my mom post-knee-replacement, but I'm thinking/hoping I won't need to go up there 'til the 16th, which is when I was going to go anyway, to walk in the multiple myeloma fundraiser. Because I refuse not to meet you.
Jul. 29th, 2011 03:18 am (UTC)
It would absolutely SUCK if we went up there and didn't get to see you! I even want to see your zoo if we can! (Of course, I want to do so much!)
Jul. 29th, 2011 03:23 am (UTC)
The zoo is open seven days a week, and September is a perfect time to see it. :-)
Jul. 29th, 2011 07:45 am (UTC)
That bar is AWESOME SQUARED. You must go!

Barb's mom is Mom to everybody. :-)

Looks like Bo is licking the grass...
Jul. 30th, 2011 12:37 am (UTC)

I think he's actually eating it...

Jul. 29th, 2011 11:52 am (UTC)

And hugs and cheers for your workouts, too.
Jul. 30th, 2011 12:38 am (UTC)
Bo is quite the Wonder Dog!

Hugs! Happy weekend!
