Recent treats:

     Had my Performance Appraisal meeting with my boss last week, and got Successful Plus, along with the funny story of how she tries to give me 'Outstanding' every time and gets shot down. I'm satisfied!

     Finally got the broken blinds in my living room replaced, after two previous years of making failed attempts (first year: stolen off my doorstep, second year: website glitch caused them to be mailed to my previous address). I was blessed to find them super cheap in the correct standard size at Home Depot, so I didn't even have to replace the holders, just pop the new blinds into place. Relieved to finally have that done, and know what size I need!

     My wonderful mother sent me some pecan shortbread cookies she made for Easter that were just incredible! And I've been enjoying her delicious lemon bread as well.

     Getting through the finish line with my 9th novel was sufficient cause to take out the Trader Joe's Key Lime pie that's been waiting in my freezer for months. And it's been fabulous, though the instructions saying it must be consumed within 48 hours is the sort of challenge I really don't need, ha ha!

     I love Etsy! Right now in particular, a beautiful skirt that reminds me of avarii wings. I saved up for a couple months and got one, and it was a treat to wear it Tuesday in celebration of finishing the novel. Problem is, now I really want MORE...

     Had a great evening with the Towners. First got to see a gorgeous IMAX Omnitheater movie about the National Parks (my first time in the 'new' Omnitheater) and then a fabulous dinner at my beloved Boca Chica. What a treat!
