I am TRYING to be in a bad mood but apparently the forces of nature have other plans.(aka I still love Steve.)

I'm in a bit of a funk. Or at least I was trying very HARD to remain in my funk.




However, here are the top five things that have sunk my funk.



5. In my new backyard (aka five gazillion acres of farmland and woods) I discovered the (grand)mother of all raspberry patches. PIE FOR EVERYONE!!!




4. An amazing blogger, photographer and friend sent me one HUNDREDTH of what she has stashed in the (grand) mother of all craft closets. (I'm not kidding- Martha Stewart would be (@*# jealous.)


3. Someone who knows me a bit too well sent me a free sample. Yes. It's Vodka. Now THAT'S what I'm talking about. (However, it's a "set for two." Anyone have a kind, honest, funny, amazing, employed, available "friend" for me? Give me a jingle, cause I'm about ready.)



2. My sister's MANY trips to the Goodwill, Thrift Shop and yard sales have paid off for me once AGAIN!! (Ah Steve, you are so lucky I don't live in Maine.)




1. MY attempt at yard sale-ing today paid off in a BIG way. However, I'm still shocked that Mr. King has a picture of me on one of his first books. Do you think perhaps he was stalking ME??




Now someone pass me a cigar and a martini. I am living large tonight, people.






Living large.

You are one smokin' hot babe on that cover. You should have no trouble finding someone to share that Vodka with you.

ChiTown Girl said...

Girl, those raspberries look an awful lot like blackberries to me. Yum!!!

What a lovely list of blessings. I can't think of anyone more deserving.

Yard saling is addictive. I promise you. I LOVE it!!

The raspberry (grand)motherlode! They would be lovely in those vodka glasses too, especially drowned by vodka.

Irish Gumbo said...

Oh, hell...can I live large with ya? I'm a sucker for a dame with gams like that! ;)

Plus, you offered pie.

Raspberries! YUM! You could pick them and sell them and make a fortune! Or eat them all by yourself! Or make jelly-my mom did this every year. Oh my.

CarrieAnn said...

I'm totally willing to share that vodka with you. I'm employed, although I'm not that great of a date, apparently, considering that I haven't had a good one in awhile...

Boom Boom Larew said...

You put de raspberries in de vodka and drink it all up....

Michon said...

Those are excellent ways to get out of a funk. Off I go to buy vodka and raspberries!

Sue said...

Vodka and raspberries, sigh! Life is once again along with Steven.

Take care, Sue

Excellent. I love it when a funk gets the stink blown off of it!

Fiducia said...

You deserve to live large now with those goodies, pies, books, vodka, and definitely with cloud nine embracing the day when you found yourself on the cover!! The funk needs to sink....Great day Vodkamom! I hope you find soon the one who you could live the day large with a toast for two!

Leslie said...

See? Good things happen to the deserving. This all made me happy for you.

Lynn MacDonald said...

Glad the yard sale went ok. I'm going to email you about BlogHer. Are you still going? Hope you're enjoying the peace and quiet you so richly deserve...

You can send me some of that pie today. I need some pie. Extra whipped cream, please.

Trooper Thorn said...

I believe King's first book was titled "Blackberry Birthday Pie."

CaJoh said...

Reminds me of a Coke Poster that looks like my friend's wife. Had to drag both of them to the restaurant so I could point it out to them.

Looks like Christmas in June. I'm a chick, but I'll be your friend for vodka.

Lisa T. said...

Just found your blog-I DO live in Maine, actually about 15 minutes from Mr. King's house. We don't talk though, I'm kind of stuck up.

Amy said...

Let me know when you need me to send you another box of "goodies" unless of course you just want to head on over for the weekend. . . .?

Cora said...

Ooh. I just squealed out loud. I love garage sales! Sadly, they don't have many of them around here in the city. What's effing wrong with these people?!?!
