I think I have a new favorite blog - Book Babes. I admit I haven't read that much of it, but how can I resist a blog about BOOKS and MIDLIFE? Granted, I don't have much time to read, but that makes their blog even better - they do the screening for me and pick out books that I'll probably like, because...let's face it, I'm almost 50 and about as midlife as a woman can be.
It's been a full day...early Mass so I could fit the grocery store in before Kendall's soccer game (they beat the Pumas for the first time, 3-1!! And yes, I lit a candle...) A beautiful sunset in the hills, grilled pork chops from Tom, the first fire of the season in our wood-burning stove, an exciting Desperate Housewives episode, and now a new favorite blog! A very good day, indeed...
It's also Tommy's girlfriend Kirby's 21st birthday. He drove to Lubbock this weekend to help her celebrate and is now on his way back home to Dallas. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KIRBY!
She sent me this picture of them at the University of Texas vs. Texas Tech game a couple of weekends ago...Texas Tech (her school) won. Normally, I'd be rooting for UT, but Kirby's enthusiasm is contagious, so I'm happy that Tech won, for her sake. Sort of like an early birthday present, right?
