Woo Hoo!!!! Spring break here I come. 
Let the good times roll !

Okay... it's settled then... nine days in sanctuary.
Like you didn't see that coming.  Ha.
He will be at work some of that time... probably a good deal of it actually.  So I will have time to post from there.
Tomorrow afternoon when school lets out, I make a mad dash home to see dabear briefly and then I hit the road.
Very cool beans.

Hey!  This must be my week... I won an award!


I hope I did this right.  I am not good at this part.  I am supposed to do certain things.  This award came to me from crazy4coens at  Raising Sunny .
 Who got one from Texlahoma over at BlueBeerRiver .
I am also supposed to nominate others... so here we go!
I nominate my friend and excellent writer
Suldog at his blog by the same name
because it tickles me to see him get all cranky over awards and things have been so good of late that I can take the abuse. (If you have never seen Sully get an award and his response... it's a real treat.  And Suldog, spare me no torment.)
Who has been a such a support to me since way back.
who is not only supportive, but insightful.

Last, but certainly not least...
who is an extraordinary writer and wit.

Can you tell I have a thing for writers?
I have so many people who make wonderful  comments here... some do not even have blogs and I don't know how to give awards to them.  I'd actually love to give this award to all of you.  I hate picking and choosing.

So what the heck... here are some others too and I hope you will visit these folk if you have never been there... all are worthwhile.

dmarks... who brought me to blogging at his


There are so many good blogs out there and so many who stop here and make wonderful comments!
Many thanks to all of you.  And if I have managed to miss you.  Crap!  You have my permission to yell at me.

Okay... so I need to finish packing.  No cookies this time DH... but no worries I will have plenty of time to bake when I get there.  Big grins.

Speaking of baking... how about a bit of Mother Goose?
Baby and I were baked in a pie 
and the gravy was wonderful hot!
We had nothing to pay to the baker that day...
so we crept right out of that pot!


Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
You are all the best.



  1. Aw, what a nice surprise! Thank you.

    I envy you the nine days off. I get psyched over a long weekend. And how especially sweet for it to be spent with your new love.

  2. secret agent woman-- You are most welcome!

    Yep... nine days walking in the clouds. Ha.

  3. Congrats on your award! Nine days in sanctuary. Sounds like the name of a song or poem or short story or something. Enjoy, Ananda :-)

  4. laura b.-- Actually sounds like a post to me! Haha. It does sound like a short story.

    Thank you! Congrats on yours too... I know C4C hit you with this one, so I didn't... or I would have. Same with billy pilgrim.

  5. Well, thank you. Funny, I almost didn't check in since you said you weren't posting today. Good thing I did. It would seem odd not to comment on a post where one received a "commenting" award.

    Thanks and have a great break. Sounds like it's off to a good start before it's even begun.

  6. Cricket-- I confused you and myself! I do my posts the evening before in most cases and I get confused on what day I am in. Ha.

    My confusion this time of course was due to my St. P's beverage choice.

    You are welcome.

  7. Thanks much! I feel lately I haven't been a great blogger, but maybe when life settles down? Who knows.

  8. Thanks for the blog mention. Hope your 9 day weekend is a memorable one :-)

  9. Cube-- You are welcome! I enjoy your blog very much.

    If the next seven days are like the first two (and one night)... I'm going to have a heck of a time leaving.

    Today I have been pretty much alone all day, except for one brief visit with DH's daughter. So I am getting in a lot of puttering around, enjoying music, baseball games and relaxing. I have not been this relaxed since I was a kid living at home. It is bliss.

  10. Enjoy the rest of your sanctuary days!
