After taking a Blue Monday off last week, I am back and I sure missed this party! I am always thankful to our dear hostess Sally over at Smiling Sally’s Blogspot. Be sure to skip on over for a great way to start the week, by visiting all the sweet Blue Monday guests.
I was scrounging around the house for something blue when my gazed halted on this book on my bookshelf. The series of books about the NO. 1 Ladies Detective Agency are lovely stories centered around Precious Ramotswe and her detective business in the country of Botswana. I have read all the books of this series by Alexander McCall Smith. The stories are amusing, mysterious and full of the culture in this lovely country.
I can’t recall an event in my life where blue shoes brought me happiness but boy did I want a pair of patent leather Go-Go boots when I was in the 4th grade. I didn’t care if they were white, black or brown. At the time, though, I knew a pair would surely bring me happiness!
A couple of weeks ago, I painted this bird cage and shutter aqua. I knew the cage needed some jazzing up and it is now home to a white cast iron bird and a pot of flowers. I think I will be changing it up with other items, fairly often.
Yes, I am star struck and living it through my niece, Claire. Claire is a freshman at the University of San Francisco and took a trip to L.A with some friends. She saw Dwight Shrute, I mean Rainn Wilson from The Office, exiting a Starbucks. Claire has not a shy bone in her body and asked for a pic, which he gladly obliged. The office is one of my favorite shows. Every character is so clearly defined and every character is someone I could have worked with at some point over the years. I can always count on laughing like crazy and cringing like crazy, too, every episode.
And, yes both of their shirts are blue! What about you? Have you ever “run into” a celebrity???
