D is for Downtime

Saturday with no major obligations means a little time relax. Today that meant… …a little reading… …watching a little rugby (sporting many layers and drinking a venti latte) …some quality Spenser time… …dinner = Trader Joe’s Chile Lime Chicken Burger, Wegman’s 7 grain salad and a Southern Tier IPA.

Pinterest Ate My Blog

Seriously. If you are not familiar, Pinterest is a visually lush Internet time suck. So instead of updating my blog, I spend my days posting or “pinning” pictures of pretty clothes or purple hair or cute puppies to a virtual bulletin board.
