Round Up

Since I didn't have a round up last week, I might do two this week.

The word for today from my Forgotten English calendar is dephlegmedness-a state of being freed from water.

Once I run out of the various and sundry address labels that I have, I am going to order some from Felix Doolittle. They are a bit pricey, but they are so gorgeous.

I was unaware of this, but Maxim magazine apparently does a Red Hot 100 women issue. Since Maxim is a magazine for men, I am thinking that the 100 women might be long on looks and other eye candy material. I found another list of the The Real Hot 100. Look on the left-hand side and you can see the 2006 winners (it's PDF).

I spend a lot of time rethinking my career path and choices and becoming more and more depressed about it. I really think I would like to stay home and make gorgeous cupcakes like these on chockylit's blog.

I really do not like carrying umbrellas. I like umbrellas, but I usually have too many other things in my hands to manage one. And then there's those little ones that you are supposed to be able to put in your bag or tote. I've had plenty of those turn inside out on my in a good wind so no to those as well. The umbrellas at Pare are so unique I may become a convert.

Look at this cute little RV. I've been trying to convince A. for years that I think it's a splendid idea to sell everything and buy a Winnebago or even better an Airstream, and travel around the country. I usually just get a look. Maybe we could start small with T@B.

I stumbled across Fidra Books and fell in love. Someone else who has the life that I want. Located in Scotland, Fidra Books reprints neglected and forgotten children's books. The website and the blog are just delightful and so is their wonderful newsletter.

I'm not much of a wine drinker, or a drinker of any spirits anymore, but I think this site is great. A. loves red wine and I'm usually trying to get him to try different kinds. Snooth is a personal wine recommendation site. They also have a blog.

I'm not familiar with Elsa Beskow's children's books, but I love her illustrations. The site is in Swedish.

Ever wonder what a 300 calorie meal looks like?

Those address labels were really nice.
As for the RV, I dream about that, too. Check out the Roadtrek RVs. They are van-size and no big deal to drive, but contain everything you need, even a shower.

Oh, Rhea, the Roadtrek RVS are wonderful. I'm in love.
