I'm a brainy bibliophile lucky to have married a Geek with great hair. I have two kids and three formerly stray cats, and every one of us has our own computer. Or litter box.

My husband and I love to cook and eat good food---in fact, we'd often prefer to cook at home, rather than eat out.

Yoga does get out the kinks, both physical and mental. Thanks for the reminder - I'll be going there this evening.
Five Good Things: cooler weather (still beautiful), adult offspring who still like me and seek out my company, friends and support online, a job, safety, drinking water, good food, absence of fear (more than five but if you even glance at the news, you find yourself grateful for soo many things)..
Thank you very much for commenting on my blog. Excellent suggestions. The one you mentioned, listing things you really like - an old buddy of mine used to call that the "Bliss Break" list. It's really fun - you just break it out when you need and BAM you're off to the movies (me) or soaking in a bubble bath..
Hope your trip was fabulous! Sorry this is so long...
Maggie

Movie Team YES! Let's git er going. How do we do that? Maybe I'll just start posting like a madwoman in there, and spamming our team members' pages.. Or maybe ... I'll ::italics please:: go to the movies MUAHAHAHAHAAA.
Sorry, I was gone for a minute there. I'm developing a tic from not having seen a movie in way too long. Boyhood perhaps?
Have a fine weekend!
Maggie
Oh man, I just looked for a movie-ticket emoticon but no! And no popcorn one, either. French fries, yes. (They need to consult with their nutritionists about this.)

Hello! Thanks for your kind comments on my feed. It's funny how nice a message in font - on a computer website - can be. Day-changing ~:-).
HEY! The weekend's coming up! I hope you have a great one!

You do contract work for companies that are tracking us all? Does that mean you're going to have to kill me now?
