I am very smart. Listen to me.

Margaret Finnegan would like to remind you of the following:

1. You look lovely in a little color. Lighten up on the beiges and blacks. Only the boring birds are desperate to appear neutral.
2. That depressing book you're reading? The one about the futility of life? Blah, blah, blah, all ready. If you want depressing, Google landfills. Read something that reminds you that your life is a gift. Have fun. Read this.
3. You are always happiest when you've made time to visit with that one friend. I can't remember her name. You know who I mean. Maybe you should call her.
4. Treat yourself as well as you would want people to treat your children (or your dog). So go to bed! It's late!
5. It's really not your fault. Let it go. You know what I'm talking about.

I don't mean to nag. I'm just saying.

PS: There will be a goddess later this week. Promise!

I was gonna say it's about time for a goddess, but I didn't want to nag.

You are smart, Margaret. No wonder you're an author. {I'm hoping to get a leave pass on the colour thing by wearing French Navy instead of black.}

Olga said...

You are very smart indeed. Wise, even. You are a goddess.

Very good advice Margaret. Are you sure Scout didn't write it? It sounds very canine to me.

You are very smart!!! All great advice...(especially the one about going to bed!)...
But what do I do if I've already read and loved the fabulous Camelot and Vine??? (AND the fabulous Goddess Lounge!!!)

Desiree said...

Ahem, Chieftess--there's this cool little mystery called Human Cargo.
It may help.

M: Wise words indeed! Gosh, treat yourself as well as you treat your kids. More pudding!

You're right. I do know what you're talking about.

Plus you are so nice to link to Camelot & Vine. I hope people read and enjoy.

1. But wearing black is so easy! Oh ok. 2. Can't wait to read it! 3. I'll call her this weekend when minutes are free and we can talk for an hour. 4. No kids or pets, but I'll definitely go to bed early. 5. I've let it go. Finally. Thanks!

Your latest post reminded me I'd missed a few pearls of wisdom from you. I may be late but this advice never gets old. Right, I must read Camelot & Vine! It's next on my list.
