A bit of Sugar

March 12th, 2010 (04:10 pm)

current mood: allergic

Today The Brides are making a quick run to Austin to deliver Lindsey's, Jennifer's, and my paintings to the Creative Fidelity exhibit. They'll be back this evening, but Margot, Guinness, and I get Sugar's company in the meantime. This is always a treat. Yesterday, Tim and I shared custody of Minute, Sparky, and Paco. Paco was my best friend until Lynne got here for dinner, then he was through with me. Faithless beast.

On their way out of town, The Brides were kind enough to drop me at the post office so I could ship review copies of novels to Italy. Since I'd taken allergy medicine before I left the house, it was actually pleasant (the weather is GORGEOUS) to treat myself to lunch out. Then I did the thing that any writer with a new computer and an entirely different operating system might perceive as ecstasy: I purchased a brand new and current edition of Microsoft Office. My word processing software since 1987, I stuck with Microsoft through the Word Perfect craze--until Microsoft Word emerged victorious. Installing it this afternoon has made me almost giddy.

Or maybe that's the allergy medication.
