Is it just me, or does this feel like one of the longer weeks we’ve had in recent memory? I mean, I have plenty to look forward to this weekend, but I feel like the days have just been dragging.
I was hoping to blame it on the heat, but considering how much time I spent not-outside in the past few days, I think that might be something of a stretch.
This afternoon, I popped over Mom and Dad’s house to pick up a package and was greeted by this lovely sight.
In case you couldn’t tell from my wedding bouquet, I love hydrangeas 11/10.
And let me tell you, that bush has looked anemic at best for summers. There were points where I seriously thought it was done for. This year? It has fluffed up in a manner that suggests it’s As Happy As A Clam.
I like to think that I would look that perky too if I got to sunbathe all day
And the package I had to pick up? Was my myAgenda!
I wish I had thought to take a snap while I was unwrapping it – they packed it in some pink, polka dotted-tissue paper.
It felt all gift-y instead of like I had shelled out an arm and a leg for it.
On second thought, everything should come packed in pink, polka-dotted tissue paper.
Including bills and legal papers.
In all seriousness, the thing is a veritable planning-bible. It’s almost as large as my netbook and nearly as heavy, too. I had originally thought that I was looking for something sensible to tuck into my purse, but I think I’ve managed to inadvertently turn a corner of my dining room table into Mission Control.
The organizing-rampage will start this weekend.
And last but not least, because tonight is obviously me freestyle-sharing at you, a funny…
We’re in the middle of re-doing all of
our my magazine subscriptions, right? So I got the August issue of bon appetit.
Great. Case closed.
As it turns out, when they attempted to auto-renew my subscription, it triggered them to send me yet another copy of the August issue.
It was very More is More of them.
Imagine my amusement when we received a third copy of the August issue as the beginning of the gift subscription that we’ll be enjoying for the next year.
More is More is More?
Happily, I’ve already sourced homes for the two orphan magazines. You know, the value of thrift and all that.
Have you ever ended up with magazine multiples?
What kind of planner do you use? Is it purse-able?
