Yes, yes. Well, I'm having a bit of a time - at work. Nothing terrible but things are stressful. I am working on a trip to London, though. It's not definite yet so I am trying not to get too excited. That and having a thousand things to do before I can go to London have kept me from boasting about it. It should be finalized some time next week.
K has some things here and there to keep him busy, though Oldest is not busy right now.
Youngest is home for winter break and the fellow Middle shoots for is on a winter holiday, which makes us a complicated bunch, now that I've written it out.
I've talked before about not updating here and was convinced, by Alice I think, that as my audience has been here all along, there is little need for the kind of content I used to provide.
I'm not sure I agree but here we are.
That's my cloud poster. Lovely, yes?
Middle is working on perfecting his egg cooking technique.
I am a little obsessed with eggs right now.
That's a beautiful corner of the house I rented for K's birthday.
I am dreaming of our return this spring (perhaps).
This morning, whilst waiting for my large decaf latte, I stood and appreciated the coffee shop downstairs from my office. The owners, a couple, are adorable, the coffee, tea and pastries are wonderful and I feel at home there every day and I love it.

and, really, how can anyone feel badly about their day in the face of a huge balloon delivery?
Then I remembered a conversation I had earlier with the new guy at work.
We agreed that being optimistic and happy is the only way to be and I remembered that, for the most part, I am not able to maintain a bad mood.
Have you seen the latest episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee? You ought to.
Then do yourself another favor and watch the Acura commercials. They're wonderfully funny.
It's Friday night and I have a three-day weekend.
