Feb. 12 - Lisa's Musings From Every Day Life

I almost forgot to blog today.

After doing so every day since December.

This morning, I thought about what I'd write today, and I guess in my head, I'd written it.

Or maybe I just got caught up in Lisa's (musings) of (or from) -- it changes sometimes -- every day life.

I'm not sure.

But my day went something like this.

I finished reading 'book-number-I-don't-know-what' this morning titled "Alone in the Kitchen With An Eggplant," which I plan to review for the paper. It was a very fun group of essays about what they cook when they eat alone.

All kinds of e-mails and attempts to return a bunch of phones calls later, it was off to lunch with a former editor from the Ann Arbor News.

The meal reminded me (yet again) how lucky I am to still be in the newspaper business after 30 years.

An early grocery shopping trip for my Betty and Lisa meal Saturday, during which I bought myself two bunches of colorful tulips and a hyacinth, to add some color and one of my favorite scents to my house.

I do this every year around Valentine's Day because Feb. 14 falls exactly a week before my birthday. So, this time of year is a great excuse to treat myself to a few small things that make me happy.

Out to cover a story before eating a little late dinner and check e-mail one more time and I happily turned off the laptop for the night.

Settling into my LaZBoy to watch a little mindless TV, I simultaneous started a new book.

Yup, one I also bought myself as a combo Valentine's Day/Birthday gift.

Totally relaxed and nodding off -- all warm and cuddled under a blanket -- that's when it hit me.

I forgot to blog today.

Ah, but I didn't as you just read.
