Homemade bread

Mmmm, I love that smell. No better comfort food.

The Boutique

Today was the big Boutique Christmas give-away. The Boutique is one of my favorite stores--it's free. Of course, you can't get in without a nametag, even if the stuff is free. And they have more security at the Boutique, where everything is given away for free, than at any other office with thousands and thousands of dollars' worth of computer equipment--but I digress.

Anyway, I went shopping. I found a nice stash of children's books that will go to my favorite aspiring teacher. Also found a photo album, a blank journal, some size 5.5 shoes, and a Dallas Maverick's cap. All brand new. Then I picked up some Christmas ribbon and these little gizzies that you put on drinking glasses to make them look fancy. I don't know what they are called.

I went to my favorite restaurant today for lunch--Ton's. When my husband is away I like to get together with my lady friends: Martha for Tuesday lunch, Kaye for Tuesday dinner, Sharla for Thursday lunch. Gary comes back tomorrow. When he gets here we go to Taco Bueno. Another friend, Shari, asked me to walk with her in the afternoons. That is probably a good thing after going out all these times.

Philosophical question

Following a sober discussion with my daughter, I have the following question:

Is a caterpillar an insect?

Well--is it?

Do angels read blogs?

I wouldn't have thought so, and if they did, I wouldn't expect them to leave comments. And if they did leave comments, I wouldn't expect them to later erase their comments.

It is weird. Back in September I posted a blog entry about my chickadee in Ethiopia. Someone I didn't know, named Mark, left a comment on that entry with information about where to use a credit card in Addis Ababa, and other information specific to life in Addis that turned out to be helpful to my chickadee (who thought I was being stalked :-). The next day I added a blog comment, thanking Mark, whoever he was. Well, yesterday I went back to find those two comments and they are GONE. All other comments seem to be there. What's up with that?

Another comment I left disappeared too, on someone else's blog. But I guess the answer to that is that the blogger just deleted it (as well as his post that prompted my comment). I guess he didn't like what I said.
