It's Friday night and I've had a busy day, but I'm not going to get into how it went. (Not good, if you really must know). But tomorrow's another day. I'm not complaining because all I have to do is look out any window and know that I'm blessed.
I just put a pound cake into the oven and am having a well-deserved glass of pino grigio. And to make it better, The Thomas Crown Affair has just started. I've always liked this movie. Not the one with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway, but the more current version with Pierce Brosnan, Renee Russo and Denis Leary. I don't know if I've ever mentioned this, but I actually have a big crush on Renee Russo. Ha! You thought I was going to say Pierce or Denis, didn't you? But no, alas, it is Renee for me.
I don't know what it is about her, but if I ever went over to the dark side, er, you know what I mean, well she's the one for me, is all I'm sayin'.
Ok, now that I've got you all saying, "Oh, my God" or "there she goes again, blatantly lying ", I'm going to tell you that I'm not lying. Not this time. So let's leave it at that. Good movie, though. Pierce Brosnan owns the role of Thomas Crown.
While I was driving home this afternoon from a rather annoying trip to the rental office of my son's former apartment, I had a phone call. I was angry with my son, and was silently fuming. But when I saw Adrienne's name on my cell, I got happy again. She, Bobby, her mom Karen, and dad Jeff are all coming out tomorrow. They're my best friends and I'm so looking forward to their visit.
A: "Hey, Katy. Watcha doing?"
CG: "Driving home with Shaun from somewhere annoying. How about you?"
A: "I'm on my lunch break. I just wanted to touch base and talk about coming out tomorrow."
CG: "Ok, great!"
A: "We're coming on the bike. That's ok, right? Will we spook any of the horses? And mom is bringing Josie and I hope that's ok, too?"
CG: "It's all ok. Our house is the first one you come to when you turn into the lane. The front paddock will probably be empty and George will be really happy to meet Josie."
A: "I already know you're making something fabulous."
CG: "What? How do you know that?"
A: "Because I read your blog every day, silly. I'm making something fabulous, too. Easy and fabulous."
CG: "Wow, Adrienne! Just like you . . . easy and fabulous!"
CG: "No wait, that sounded bad. I don't mean you're easy, what I . . . "
A: "Nah, it's ok. I am easy. But I'm fabulous, too!!!"
CG: "I think you're only easy when you're drinkin' the vino, A."
A: "Ha ha ha ha!! You know I'm drinkin' the vino every day! So what does that say? I can't wait to see you tomorrow!"
And with that, we laughed and said our goodbyes. I hung up and realized that I wasn't mad anymore. In fact, I was smiling. It doesn't matter if my place isn't spotless. It doesn't matter if the food isn't perfect, or my stone patio isn't finished yet. I'm seeing my friends and I love them. And they love me.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Fabulous is my word for the day, I've decided. Thanks for that, Adrienne.
Oh, and PS ~ The pictures are from the macro lens and are of my spider plant just after I watered it tonight. I just thought it looked cool.
