Buy It Friday is a nice addition to Auntie B’s blogging adventures.  Not only does it give me the opportunity to show some of my fabulous products, it gives you the chance to buy those products directly from this site.  Win-win!

Happy hour combined with book talk is a wonderful thing. Charlotte and I were out for a little happy hour yesterday and we talked a bit about how much we enjoyed reading Margaret Mitchell’s epic novel Gone With The Wind. Neither of us had read the book until recently, though we’ve both seen the movie more than once.

It’s interesting how when one sees the movie before reading the book how the characters in the movie appear in the mind’s eye while reading. Charlotte and I concurred that the casting for the movie Gone With The Wind was superb.

The film was nominated for thirteen Academy awards in 1940 and won eight. Hattie McDaniel (portraying Mammy) was the first African American woman to ever be nominated and win the Oscar for best supporting actress. If you haven’t seen the movie or read the book, I’d recommend both.

In honor of such a great story, with the glamor of the Old South, the frustrated romances, the sheer determination to survive the trials and fall-outs of war, I created a set of drink charms to bring that Southern charm to your party.

Scarlett O’Hara, Mammy, Rhett Butler, Melanie Wilkes, Prissy, Ashley Wilkes

Tara is calling, Scarlett is answering, and Rhett isn’t giving a damn. Oh the heartbreak! The characters in Gone With The Wind would be a great addition to your next party.

Yeah, yeah, I had all these big plans to write about all of my exciting adventures last week; it ain’t gonna happen.  Sunday night was one where I didn’t get much sleep, and then I went to work for nine whole hours at the day job which was totally unfair.  By the time I got home from the day job I was all ready to spring into action despite my exhaustion.

I did a bunch of stuff before dinner, and then continued that bunch of stuff after dinner.  When it came time for me to upload the pictures I needed for the blog posts I planned the computer froze up and pooped out.  I simply can’t tell you about my adventures without visual aids, so I decided to try uploading again tomorrow.

But here I am, writing to you anyway because I feel like I owe someone an explanation of how I’ve been occupying my time.  That’s ridiculous, but nevertheless…

I did a load of laundry, namely lots of towels.  I would have changed the sheets on the bed but Husby had the bed all made up and I hated to tear it apart just for the luxury of clean sheets.  I’ll tell him to leave the bed unmade today so I can strip it and change the sheets.

Also occupying my time was the completion of two craft show applications, which were really hard and make me sweaty because they were electronic applications and I’m never sure if I complete those correctly or not.  After the applications I balanced the household checkbook, which also causes me to break out in a nervous sweat now because I’m doing that electronically too.  I’ve only done it once before and it makes me very nervous.  Balancing the checkbook isn’t the problem, it’s just that doing something a new way always seems wrong and bad.

To cool off I decided to take a break and watch an old episode of Rhoda.  I always wanted to be like Rhoda but never really got the hang of it.  It probably would have helped if I had writers to help me along with quick and funny come-backs and a personal shopper who could dress me up in all those funky clothes Rhoda wore.

Alas, it was once again time for the evening ritual of preparing for bed.  Even though I got a lot done, the items on my to-do list still out number by far the things I’ve crossed off the list.  Oh well, as Scarlett O’Hara would say, tomorrow is another day.
