In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning

while the whole wide world is fast asleep . . . It's 3am here, and I'm remembering this song from an album my father once gave me, Frank Sinatra, vinyl of course, and this song was on it. He also once gave me a dictionary which I still have. Those are the only two gifts I can remember him giving me, although I'm sure he must have given me more, like bicycles and stuff, but these were the most memorable. Wait, he must have given me the microscope, and the chemistry set. Can't imagine my mother choosing those things.

Haven't blogged in such a long time. Facebook seems to have taken over. I do enjoy it so. Funny, whenever I mention my dog, she gets more comments than anything I write about myself, esp. if I have a picture of her there with the message. And why shouldn't she get more attention? She's adorable.

Went to my first "jewelry party" last week at a friend's house. For Silpada Silver jewelry. Ever heard of it? Some nice pieces, but I don't seem to wear jewelry anymore, so bought a couple of pieces for gifts. I think the markup was really high and it was somewhat pricey, but I was helping out a friend and I had fun, so that was worth it.

Watched the new scyfy channel offering called "Caprica" tonight. Very interesting, and seems to have some promise. Robots, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, intrigue, religion, high tech computer stuff, good acting, good sets. Fridays at 9. I think what I watched tonight was the pilot.

Wanna see some photos from my visit to my family in Michigan in freezing cold December? Ok, here ya go.

Hi! I'm Erin said...

I've heard of Silpada and looked at some catalogs. I agree that it seems ridiculously marked up. But that was very nice of you to help your friend out by buying some!

Also, the photos of the kids! Weren't they just babies like last week? Thank you for posting them.

I didn't post a picture of Seven, who is just over a year old, cause I didn't like any that I took. But yes, the kids are growing up way too fast. Just ask their mom!

I also had a wonderful time with friends at a Silpada jewelry party. I am sucker for gold jewelry which Silpada lacked but I did buy some fabulous Turquoise pieces that I often wear and a bunch for gifts.
"Caprica"--is that a spin off of Battlestar Galactica? I think I rented it when I was following the BG series. I do not get SyFy.
D and I are on the 5th season of Star Trek, Next Generation--the best of the best.
Thanks for the photos of the AF kids. I'm with Erin. Was that a drum set I saw. What fun!! CSA

Great pictures! Yeah, the pull between blogging and facebooking... blogging does seem to have more content, but facebook does seem to be more quickly interactive... talk soon! XXX
