Happy dancing

Semmie arrives today!!!! TODAY!!!!!!!! Even the inside of the fridge looks more homelike, somehow ... due to containing the fruits of this morning's grocery shopping: goat cheeses, soy eggnog, diet Coke, chocolate cherry amaretto soy ice cream in the freezer. All evidence that somebody other than myself is eating out of the thing :-)))))

Have been giving this reunion a lot of thought (naturally) as we went through planning and confirming dates, etc. And after fourteen months together and four months apart (and giving thanks for the existence of long distance, e-mail, and the Internet) I can honestly say, Semmie luv, that you're one of the sweetest souls I've ever encountered. Falling in love was inevitable for me; it would be easier for me to grow six inches taller by wishing it than it would be to stop loving you. I treasure every moment of knowing you, both as friend and as lover, and plan to treasure billions upon billions more moments.

Merry Christmas, darlin'

New adventure of the day

Had a nightshirt that Semmie had requested completed except for sewing on buttons ... my least favourite sewing exercise in the universe after handsewing hems ... detect a pattern here? Yes, I confess it, I have no patience with handsewing clothing (I know, Alison, I'm a heretic ***grin***), although, strangely, I"m happy to sit and work very large cross-stitch projects in very small scale (must be the colour variety that keeps me happy). Anyway, decided to try out the button sewing aspect of my new sewing machine ... something I've always been mildly suspicious of. After an amusing bout following the directions (which had the button squirting out from under the presser foot while I tried to align the needle to the holes), I ignored 'em and followed instinct instead ... and now I'm a machine button sewing convert!!!!! :-)))))))) Hell, I may even get all my other sewing projects completed within this decade now!!!!!!

For the record and for those who remember me jokingly looking for naked elf fabric way back, your imagination may clothe Semmie in amethyst flannelette, patterned with sky-blue teddy bears and little red hearts. Hey, she SAID I could choose the fabric! ;-)

SHE'S HERE!!!!!!!!!!!

Semmie has arrived in Cowtown all safe and mostly sound (in her rather garbled words, her body is okay, her brain is somewhere between a strawberry daquiri and a fried banana). Have fed her some orange/peach/mango soymilk and some deviled eggs made with Extreme Cheese salad dressing; on eating the first one, Semmie said it gave her mouth an orgasm, so I think I'm onto a good recipe here :-)
