What my purple umbrella says about me

What Your Purple Umbrella Says About You

When faced with adversity, you remain together and graceful.

You are very balanced, and it’s hard for you to let yourself get too down.

You are brainy and philosophical. It’s hard for you to lose your broad perspective on life.

You accept things as they are. You don’t try to change anything that can’t be changed.

On a rainy day: you should spend the day reading

With thanks to That Grrl for this idea.

Oh for corn sake (one of my sainted grannie’s expressions).


Let’s keep her in the slammer for awhile, okay?

My latest book squeeze

Is Run, by Ann Patchett.

I’m enjoying this book because it has taken a few twists, which I’m not going to give away!

Read often and enjoy.

Glad this day is over

I started out my Monday by not being able to find my bus pass.

After panicking for 20 minutes or so, I counted out some change and ran out the door to get my bus.

Which I missed.

That’s okay, there’s another bus coming in 7 minutes, I assured myself.

That bus was late.

See the pattern that’s developing here, my friends?

I got to work, late, and within 30 minutes I had a full-blown emergency.

I spent the day dealing with the emergency.

Sorry I can’t say anything, due to client confidentiality.

By 3:00 p.m., I was processing my day with the team.

At 5:00 p.m. on the dot, I walked out of work, and as I walked up to the bus stop my bus pulled up.

And the bus was empty!

Things are looking up, I said to myself, as I climbed into the bus.

I’m so glad this day is over.
