but i feel compelled to do another one of my experiments for august. what i'm leaning toward the most is the concept of packaged "convenience" foods like chips, gas station cheese danishes (oh i wish i was kidding about that one), M&M's, ice cream sammiches etc. junk food in general. i am greatly leaning toward removing them for the month of august (and preferably forever). a once in a while thing is okay i reckon; (kind of like dressing trashy for a night out with the gal pals. it's fun for a night but any longer than that and you feel sick), but a bag of carrot sticks is just as convenient, if not more so than a bag of chips. hmmm... i'm going to mull that one over for a bit. i'm pretty sure that's the test at hand for ole agosto.
adieu for now, darlings!

i've had a lot of things on my mind lately. my dreams have been erratic and stressful; and i've had no real time to sit and mull things over. you know me and my quiet time. a good dose of quiet time can keep me from being horrible to everyone around me. sooo, i'm going to have to do the world a favour and take some time for myself soon.
anyway, i've been considering taking this blog in a different direction but i'm not sure exactly how. i love discussing my daily stuff and sending it out into the interwebs for all to see; but a) i'm not sure too many people care to read about that in general b) i have actual things to say. hmmm... where to go from there?
well, i will be posting pictures soon, i promise. if you have read this for any length of time you know that when i'm feeling discombobulated i can't wrap my head around being organized anywhere else in my life. but as per usual, the pictures do exist and will be posted soon. stay tuned.
adieu for now,

oh well, other than that i'm doing alright. trying as much as possible to retain my sanity in a particularly insane situation. good grief. i'm also looking for a new job and trying not to freak out about it. i need positive energies and the optimism that comes with starting a new job. hmmm...
on that note, i'm going to go look online for some employments.
adieu, my sweets. i hope your thursdays are fantabulous! pictures to follow later today.

this is the apartment that i really like that i went to visit wednesday...that i still don't know if we've gotten so i'm super anxious to hear about it... and i'm probably jinxing it by putting it up here. oh well, it was the only picture i took on wednesday.
this is little mister pants on tuesday. he is not fond of the thunderstorms we have been having lately. poor thing!
*top picture: friday morning and i'm out of it due to another nine+ hours of sleep. i feel medicated which is kind of a funny feeling.
adieu for now, my friends. i hope your fridays are wonderful and tons of fun!

well, last night i kept getting punched in the face with a "mood". i don't like those moods but i was really frustrated last night. every time i sat down to work on the resume i HAVE to have done soon, i would get so irritated it was all i could do not to throw the computer across the room. why is this? i know not. perhaps too many wild flying-around thingies stressing me out in my mind. there is a lot going on after all. mississippi is moving here this weekend and after work on saturday i'm driving over there so we can load up jane honda and mr. miati (if he's fixed by then) and head on over to the sunshine state.
we are also looking for apartments. i found one that i'm really excited about but i'm trying not to get my hopes up about it. last time i did that, a place was rented out from under me. i'm also, as i previously mentioned, looking for a new job. i'll be here well into spring of 2011 and i need something to keep me solvent until then. being a glutton for punishment as i sometimes am, i made the ridiculous decision to read employment reports online yesterday. way to go! and even though i know better, i began feeling completely helpless.
i feel a tad better today though. but these are some of the things on my plate that have me a little stressimans. even long tubby time didn't help yesterday. but today is a new day, thank goodness. i'm in a slightly more sane place than i was last night and looking forward to when all these stressors funnel themselves into their respective bottles so i can cork 'em up in there.
well, i reckon i should get ready for work. three more work days til another mississippi drive. i'm excited about that. wish me luck wif all ma stuff, friends. i hope your thursdays are replete with stress-free summer fun.
adieu for now,
*still having picture issues. this will be remedied with a photographic post ranging from sunday-today, hopefully very soon.

i had a great and relaxing day yesterday. mississippi drove all the way over and surprised me yesterday morning. we ate at our favourite diner, apartment/house-hunted for over three hours, made a delicious lunch, took a nap then he was on his way back to mississippi. it was a wonderful surprise and did us both a lot of good. we are not too terribly keen on the distance right now. *sigh*
well, i will have more things of interest to post when i'm not rushing around like mad. aaaand i will add all the pictures as well.
adieu for now, friends!

anyway, i had a fabulous friday night in. one of my patented piddly nights. i tinkered online, made an incredible dinner. chunky garlic & shallot butternut squash soup with herbs de provence and pecorinno romano cheesy bread. good grief it was incredible. truly. i think i may have found a new lu recipe that will stand the test of time. it was a total autumn meal which should come as no surprise to you guys if you read my post last night.
after that it was dexter reruns while i had wine and tubby time. and just to let everyone who reads this know, yes i realize how magnificently luxurious a night like that is and i enjoyed every second of it.
well, i should find some coffee and take a shower, gotta hit the bricks soon... i hope you all have a beautiful saturday. do something fun for us schmucks punchin' clocks today.
adieu for now!
p.s. picture to be posted once i'm out of stinky workout clothes and have started approaching presentable again. much love, friends!

adieu for now,
well, despite the fact that i woke up with scant minutes to roll around in my morning time, i'm in a relatively decent mood this morning. i'm excited that mississippi is moving here; and that tennessee and i are going to have another yard sale in august. i'm already pulling more stuff out to sell. it feels quite good.
oh well, i need to hop in the shower. i no like my mornings being rushed. i'm hoping to make up for it tonight by having a peaceful night in. wine and movies and organizing. it's good for my brain.
adieu for now lovies. i hope your fridays are super-fun and relaxing. much love!

i'm sitting at the chateau trying to force myself to down the last 8 ounces of my water bottle. i'm not sure why it has been so hard for me to drink enough water lately but my body suffers for it and we cannot have that!
i took another walk today and you know what i realized? well, other than the fact that halfway through my walk, i had, in my sleepy stupor put on my not-so-opaque leggings instead of my comfortably opaque stretchy workout pants (your welcome, suburbia); i also realized just how long its been since i have had a massage. my shoulders and back are so tight and full of knots that i was actually walking funny this morning. no me gusta! the massage therapist that i adore is a tad on the expensive side for this penny-pincher at the moment. oh well. that's just the way it be sometimes. i really should get on training seven to walk on my back.
i did, however, have a beautiful morning walk regardless. i love the early morning sounds and i know i will miss them when we move to new york. however, i'm sure i will come to find charm in the early morning city sounds as well...temporarily. i'm too much of a southern girl to be wooed by the city's charms for too long. heh.
this morning i am running a tad behind (let myself sleep in a half hour) so i probably should say adios for now. i hope your thursdays are lovely and...well, charming. why shouldn't they be, right?!
adieu for now,
*today's picture: the trees lining the driveway at the chateau. pretty, no?

this morning: no makeup and in desperate need for a shower. mmmm...isn't sheeee lovely?
monday rain storm in mississippi as seen from under the bridge.
today i have some work to do. well, other than actually going to work. i ought to make a list or something. i think that's what i will do with the rest of my rapidly disappearing morning.
much love friends! hope your tuesdays are highly enjoyable!
adieu for now,

well, everything where i am is hot and relaxed. we went to downtown ocean springs yesterday and browsed the shops and drank the beer. it was very cool. we ended up not going to the art festival and instead spent an hour or so on a patio of a restaurant drawing and writing short stories. pretty cool.
i have no idea what we may be doing today. hopefully play with fireworks and eat some good food. happy independence day!
adieu for now, lovies.

the traffic yesterday was ridiculous. i know i know. it's a holiday. i'm no rookie. but it was insane. it seems like 98% of the drivers yesterday reeeeallly should not have been out on the road. i felt like i was behind 297 miles of drivers ed cars (that also happened to be semi-trucks at some points). oh well, i made here safely, thank goodness. had a more decent night's sleep than usual. i think i probably got about five hours as opposed to four the night before, and two and a half the night before that. i have decided that i want to train seven to walk on my back before i go to bed so that the knots behind my shoulder blades will eventually get worked out and disappear. heh. wish me luck on that one.
well, i see breakfast and an art festival in my future. so i will say adieu for now... i'll probably post all the pictures when i get home on the fifth, but will write a little something every day. love to all this weekend (and be safe, for crying out loud)!

i had a great family dinner last night. hobo dinners. i love it when mama makes those. it reminds me of being a little kid. oh, for those of you who don't know what those are by the way, hobo dinners are when you make a little pouch with foil and fill it with whatever you want and bake it. you can use chicken, corn, burgers, potatoes, peppers whatever. it always turns out cooked perfectly and delicious. so that's what we did last night and it indeed was delicious. i'm going to make family dinner next week and i'm looking forward to it a great deal.
well, i have a short post today because i have to get ready for work and pack for mississippi. i'm heading west after work as soon as i load up mr. seven and his suitcase. i'm hoping today goes by quickly and easily at work because i'm ready to hit the road. i'm really excited about my weekend. i hope you guys are too. happy fourth of july a little early just in case i don't get to post while i'm out of town.
adieu for now,
