Winners, Hardwood and a Very Unclever Title

The repose of sleep refreshes only the body. It rarely sets the soul at rest. The repose of the night does not belong to us. It is not the possession of our being. Sleep opens within us an inn for phantoms. In the morning we must sweep out the shadows. ~Gaston Bachelard

The winner of the drawing for a copy of Jeff Rivera's book from my blog post yesterday is.... (((drum roll))).... DRU!

Dru, would you email me (authormariannearkins AT gmail DOT com) your address, please? I'll have that sent out to you shortly.

Congratulations!

=======================

DD woke me up the other night around 10pm... she opened the door to the bedroom and stood there, whispering. I kept saying, "What? What?" and then she walked away and went back to bed.

I followed and asked, "What were you saying?"

She replied, "Go to the belltower and wake me up."

Oooooooooh...kayyyyyyy....

The next morning, upon my questioning, she said she vaguley remembered doing that (but thought it was a dream) and said that she must have "Doomwyte" by Brian Jacques on the brain.

LOL

==========================

Amy, I'm using Dynamic Learning Dreamweaver CS3 for my Dreamweaver tutorial. Judy is using the Photoshop equivalent, and we are both liking them. My DH (aka my Tech Support and computer nerd) always suggests using the O'Reilly books -- though some of them are absurdly complex if you're not a total techie.

==========================

Yesterday was demo day upstairs. All the old carpet and edging (it's called something else, but for the life of me I can't remember the right word) was pulled up and the boxes of hardwood moved upstairs in preparation for today.

Today is the day it will be put down. We have 200 sq feet of wood. We have 164 sq feet of area. Please, please, please let us not mess up any of the cuts, because that is really cutting it close. (((fingers crossed)))

============================

It's freezing here. I know, it's the stupid frozen north, but this is ridiculous. Actually, it would probably be at least bearable if we didn't have frigid, gale force winds whipping through.

What Your Cupcake Says About You



At parties, you tend to be laid back and even a bit shy. You are an observer.

You have lots of restraint in your life. You never are victim to your desires.

The most important thing in your life is passion.

You are dominant, vain, and a bit of a show off. To know you is to worship you.



HAHAHA.... approach me, oh minions, and bow down! **snort**

Okay, so the party part is right, but the rest? HAHAHA...

Sue me. I like chocolate... lol...

It's ten degrees here...BRR!

Wouldn't you love to "see" other people's dreams? I wonder just what your daughter had in mind when she came to alert you. Very interesting.

I hope your flooring goes well. This is the fun part, laying the floor down. :)

Dru said...

Thank you. My email is on it's way.

Wow, that is so interesting that she doesn't recall what she did. Her dream must have been powerful.

Good luck with the flooring. I bet it will look beautiful.

The most important thing in your life is love.

You are laid back, flexible, and easy to get along with. To know you is to care for you.


Yes, that is me.

Have a good Saturday.

Will you post a pic of your office when it's done? I bet it's going to be worth the effort.

It's 25 here with a light dusting of snow--not enough to get out the shovel, but enough so it's pretty.

Love your daughter's dream!

Wish we could record our dreams to watch later when we're awake.

It's not as cold here, but I am already sick to death of winter. Stupid weather.

All of my kids have done things like that at one time or another. I can carry on whole conversations with Silly-head.

My son talks in his sleep all the time but so far has never done any sleep walking.

It is a bit brisk today, isn't it. Wintery mix on the way for Tuesday. Just letting ya know..... :)

Daughter has never woken me before, but Son will all of sudden start talking to me and giggle in his dreams. *G* And never remembers it the next day.
Best of luck with the hardwood floors!
Congratulations Dru!
Cupcake Quiz:At parties, you tend to be laid back and even a bit shy. You are an observer. (True.)

You hardly have any restraint. You only hold yourself back when absolutely necessary. (Hahaha, no.)

The most important thing in your life is your significant other. (And my kids and my pets.)

You are laid back, flexible, and easy to get along with. To know you is to care for you. (Awwww, I hope so.)

I hope you had a great Saturday and a relaxing Sunday!
