I like blogging. I really do. But sometimes it interrupts my reading. Occasionally I find that when I am reading about how to braid garlic, or how to make really cute Anthropology inspired glasses - or I'm doing something like building pergolas, shopping for a beautiful pink vase, or painting my hallway purple, my mind goes to my book friends and I think "I should give them a call and see how they are doing...."
Then I remember my book friends are not real.
And I am sad.
Because except for 4 or 10 very special friends and family, my book friends are the best people I know.
Today I'm going to blow off blogging and hang out with my new best friends. Because they are going away on a space adventure and I want to go with them.
So enjoy your time here on earth today. I am going to explore the Alpha Centuri world of Rakhat with Anne, George, Sophia, Jimmy and Emilio. Ohhh, Emilio....

I won't be making anything wonderful today,
but you can!
