I can’t believe all the things I have done this weekend

Today, I am having a Tea Party at work for my birthday instead of their typical cool cake tradition. It is my idea so I am providing an awful lot of it. My boss is getting 2 dozen petite fours (we just picked them up and they are sooooo nice, *bouncy bouncy*)and the company has a variety of tea. Before this weekend and currently hiding under my desk, I have gathered: a silver tea set, three layer plate thingy, tea, a spare teapot, silver try w/ doily, plates, tea cup and saucer.

This weekend, cut because it gets a little long

More labyrinth stuff

I found another labyrinth in Sonoma, near the Plaza. It is a very nice outdoor one in a ring of redwoods. This is my third labyrinth and it is a 9 circuit one.

I was in Sonoma with Crystal and Karen on a Spa Day. We had just finished eating lunch under a canvas umbrella during a serious downpour. It was raining so hard that the water hitting the canvas was being pushed through as a fine mist. It was wonderful. Tasty hamburgers with local cheese, good friends, wonderful weather.

Afterwards we went over to were I spied this labyrinth in front of the Trinity Episcopal Church. I had been looking for a 9 circuit and lo, there one was. It was in a large clearing of matching redwoods with some oak trees outside one side. The labyrinth was delineated with rounded stones and covered in leaves, it being autumn and all. The sky was a mottling of clouds. It couldn’t have been more perfect.

I have made another labyrinth page for this one.

The pages so far are:
Sibley , my first one.
Grace Cathedral, my second one.
Trinity, Sonoma, my third, and latest one.

Soon I will make an over all labyrinth page. I have linked them all so you can get from one to another.

Month lemming

I couldn’t resist. So many of my friends list is doing the month meme I figured I would bow to the pressure. I struck through the ones that weren’t me but I had to be different. I also bolded the ones there were me to a tee. The others are me but not something I would use to define me.

Happy Birthday to me

Today, I am officially another step closer to 40 and this brings about ponderings and musings. A friend sent me this little tidbit about a month ago and I decided to save it until today.


Andy Rooney says…. “As I grow in age, I value women who are over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:

An over 40 woman will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, “What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care what you think.

If an over 40 woman doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And it’s usually something more interesting.

An over 40 woman knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants, and from whom. Few women past the age of 40 give a darn what you might think about her or what she’s doing.

An over 40 woman usually has had her fill of “meaningful relationships” and commitment.” The last thing she wants in her life is another dopey, clingy, whiny, dependent lover.

Over 40 women are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.

Over 40 women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

An over 40 woman has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn’t trust the guy with other women. A woman over 40 couldn’t care less if you’re attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won’t betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to an over 40 woman. They always know.

An over 40 woman looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women.

Over 40 women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise over 40 women for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of 40+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year-old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize.


As I look over this list, I realize I have most of it covered. I either do that or am significantly on my way to it. The exception is the Psychic which I don’t see happening at any time. I may already know the sins but it isn’t because I pulled them from anybody’s mind. update

We have pictures!!
Due to some down time at work, I have updated GinaSpace. The main page now contains links to html pages for all those picture links I put up last week.

I also move things around so they are in pretty much chronological order. A few more pictures got added to the Dangerous Beauty Ball page (more of the same but they weren’t there before). I have also scanned some pictures from an Edward Gorey ball from early in the year and got those up finally.

I was feeling like I have ignored my site for sooooo long since the last thing was an event in March. Turns out that the last update was in Aug, I just hadn’t bothered to put the March picture until then. I still haven’t done anything with the vacation pictures and I may not. It would only be for me since they aren’t things others are interested in. If it happens someday, it will happen. The rest are pictures others want to see so….

Share and Enjoy

Mac sadness

My Mac at work is making bad noises. Like it is struggling hard to just sit there. Sounds like the hard drive might be going. I have been told that Tech will look at it after 1:30 tomorrow. So today, I spent the day transferring all the music from the Mac to the PC so I could burn it.

Yup, that is what my Mac is for, iTunes. And to read LJ while my PC crunches on stuff. Which means I had to share CPU time on the PC to catch up on today’s LJ.

Life is rough.

Enneagram update

I guess it is time for an update on my weekend since soooo many people read my journal :P

It was a good thing to do. It was tiring. It was informative (I am just bursting with new info). It was frustrating. It was valuable. It hurt (I had a massive headache each day).

My Dad and his girlfriend came out to CA to take me to a weekend class on the instinctual subtypes of the enneagram.
for those that just want too much information
