Who loves the sun?

Juicy moved in this weekend and in no time flat she made that little suite downstairs into a cozy, funky haven for her and her son. I had to watch myself because I kept wanting to go down there and see what she was doing. Of course she was more than welcoming and when she was done for the day we thought we had better break in her new pad by sitting down there and listening to tunes and drinking lots of wine. Our other friend J came by as well so we had a nice little kitchen party and stayed up way too late. It was loads of fun!
Sunday broke with sun a-blazing and that was a fine thing to see. Our friend Binski came by with fresh ham and cheese scones from Uprising Bakery and all the makings for Caesars! This called for dragging out the outdoor furniture and drinking in some vitamin V (vodka) and some vitamin D (sun)! It was all very delicious and it felt so good to get some warmth from our friends and the sun. I can't even tell you.
Some time over the weekend I developed a huge blood spot in my left eye. It doesn't hurt or itch or anything but it looks rather gory. I looked it up on the Internets and it's called a subconjunctival hemorrhage and it's harmless. Of course I had to speak on a panel yesterday for a women's business event in front of a couple of hundred people and I ended up sitting so my gory eye was facing the audience. Not my best side. it was a great event though and I think my partner and I did a good job contributing. One of the main subjects discussed in other panels was Twitter. I guess I still don't get the excitement but apparently it can be used as an effective marketing tool for business too. I will have to look into that further. Today I am off to The Sunshine Coast for some business doings and will probably come home tomorrow. I will tell you all about when it's a done deal. I'm looking forward to hitting the road this afternoon.
Enjoy the sun if you are getting it!!

Oh wow! Sounds great.
Would you ever consider trading lives for a day?
- I didn't think so.
I'm sure your eye wasn't as bad as you thought it looked. Did you mention it in your speech?

Hi MLC! There are some things that I could use a trade n these days but mostly I agree that my life is good:)

Hi ETW! It is a lovely yard and if the weather ever stays nice for more than 5 minutes I plan on being out there a lot this year:)

Hi Juicy! I love it that you and N8 have settled in a bit and we are really happy to have you in the house! And can I just say, you raised some really great kids:)

Thanks Barb - I can't take full credit - not even half - I think they were just born that way. I am a very very lucky mama. So very proud of both of them.
See you at home for wine and chat.
