Friday Before Labor Day Potpourri

I am doing the job search and some work work while listening to iTunes on my computer. I never think to play music while working at home but today I have it cranked and am singing along. Another small sign that I am coming out of the dark (Thank you Gloria Estefan) and returning to the Sister Rain I want to be.


Today we are planting a tree that we recently bought. We are NOT outside/landscaping kind of people, but I saw one of these in all its blooming glory and had to have one. Ours is a youngen but it’ll be fun to watch it grow. BTW, it’s a crape myrtle.


“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
— George Eliot

(Ironically, George Eliot was born Mary Anne Evans. She was an English novelist and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era.

She used a male pen name, she said, to ensure that her works were taken seriously. Female authors were published under their own names during Eliot’s life, but she wanted to ensure that she was not seen as merely a writer of lighthearted romances. An additional factor in her use of a pen name may have been a desire to shield her private life from public scrutiny and to prevent scandals attending her relationship with the married George Henry Lewes, with whom she lived for over 20 years.

There is your literature lesson of the day. You’re welcome.)


I told you it was a potpourri. If only this could be a Scratch ‘N Sniff blog . . .
