I just finished a freelance project for the local newspaper. This is a project I agreed to do after I thought I was done with freelancing for the year. But when a paycheck is involved, my mouth has a habit of saying yes, even as my brain is screaming NO. It seems like my computer was angry with me for the extra project and decided it was time for my mail program to have an issue with my graphics programs and they took turns crashing each other, and then any pdf's I created decided translating gradients was optional. Fun times. I am not even going to talk about my printer. I just don't have the stamina.

So my desk has been looking a lot like this...

And I've been looking a lot like this...

I know, that isn't me. But trust me you don't want to see what is behind the curtain today.

And things seemed dark and dreary and stressful and all full of fantasies about computers being thrown from second story windows. You know, that old chestnut.

Then this happened...

Yes, that is TWO boxes of truffles from a specialty chocolate shop. (And yes, there are already three missing from the box... WHAT!?) The story is it was buy one get one free day at the local chocolate shop because it is about to close for the season. But I secretly suspect I just looked two boxes of chocolate away from the far edges of sanity. Whatever the reason, my sweet husband picked up my favorite chocolates to ring in the weekend with.

He is a lovely, lovely man.

Hope everyone's weekend is calm, relaxing and filled with random chocolate moments.
