happy international woman’s day!

first off, thanks to each and every one of you for the sweet birthday wishes! for some reason, my camera isn’t working unless its attached to its charging dock, so you’ll have to wait for pics of my birthday giftys and cards for a bit, but more important than any gifts were the emails, comments, phone calls, and cards i got – at the guild meeting on saturday, the members even broke out into song! (have i made it clear yet that i love my guild?) as before, i declare this my birthday month though, so be prepared for more fesitivities down the line. ;)


off to san francisco for the day in just a few hours ~ so very excited! i intend to enjoy every moment ;) in the meantime, a few links and a pic for you..

a new background*

i love the different colors of wood, and in my apartment there’s a couple different types that really appeal. since you all have seen only the table – again and again, in every photo it seems ;) – i thought, hey i like this floor, let’s just take a pic there. so, yup, my pretty (dusty) floor. also, a nice sideline view of what all old buildings in l.a. have, that is, long metal bars for earthquake proofing, supposedly. and see all those cracks between the boards? a total haven for crumbs and kitty litter – what a lovely combo.
