On my way to work I stopped at my new Starbucks, and I was pleased to find it worked quite well (with the flow of traffic and all I mean). I went through the drivethru, which was fun.

I ordered a drink and a muffin, then pulled around. The drivethru guy was quite cheery! He waved my muffin at me, "Blueberry muffin, right?"

I confirmed. He handed me my muffin and I handed him my money. He took another minute for my coffee, and I stared vaguely at nothing. I was extra-tired, having gotten up extra-ealy to meet with a contractor.

He appeared with my coffee and change, handed them to me, and waved me cheerfully on.

I looked at my hands, only one holding something, and said, "Wait, you haven't given me my muffin yet."

"I just handed it to you," he protested.

I looked at the seat next to me in surprise. There sat a forlorn muffin. "So you did!"

"I am wounded," he said. "Tears."

"I'm sorry... It must be because I haven't had any coffee yet."


I had to have some plaster repaired in my diningroom, and I decided to have them paint the whole room, plus the livingroom, while they're at it.

It's partway done! Hopefully everything will be done by tomrrow. How exciting! Now I just have to hope I like the color....

PS - this one really IS purple, kind of a grayish purple. Hopefully it will look "rich and cozy", not "dark and very purple", which is my only fear!
