Cowart's Common Room

Today is Wednesday, May 5, 2010.

The Common Room has turned into something of a floral art gallery, thanks to the pictorial contributions of multiple members. The colours, and borders, and boxes are all quite stunning. Yesterday's "Robins in a watering can" (posted by KittyB as "Look") was adorable! No point in Bear trying to add our flowers are all under the snow. Again. Mad And the snow is still falling. (There's a related story in the comments.)

With yet another meeting at the university, attending on Her Ladyship, Miss Sadie, caring for the grandchildren, and buying a car, Bear had a busy day. Hence no fresh baking in the biscuit tins. So you'll have to settle for an assortment of Peak Freen creams, with my apologies. (I trust the Headmistress has forgiven me for purloining her shortbreads yesterday. "What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander," they say.) Darjeeling tea in the pot. (I'm looking for a multi-tea-bag holder, so we offer an assortment of teas in the morning.)

Hope you have a grand day.

On my way to yesterday's meeting at the university, the snow was coming down heavily. I met up with a colleague, Don, on the way in, and wished him a "Merry Christmas."

Don then told me about his new grad. student, who arrived at the end of April, expressing his thanks that the snow was gone. "Don't worry," said Don, "we'll have at least a couple of storms in the next while." Grad student obviously felt the new supervisor was being "funny" with him until he woke up yesterday and looked outside. Laughing

Don's right; it's still only the beginning of May.

Salle de Bain's Avatar Hi Bear,

Did you have any furniture left when you got back from all your appointments...or was Miss Sadie safely ensconced in the basement this time? Laughing. I thought your photos of the disembowelled sofa were hilarious (sorry if it was your favourite seat)....she sounds like a bit of a gal to me...but she's awfully cuteVery Happy.
