Not “baking-baking”, as in pastries in the oven. Although I did make cupcakes last night. But honestly really truly baking myself. I’ve been up since 7 am & out in the glorious “77 degrees at 9 am sun”.
It is truly beautiful out here. Gorgeous. Sunny & gorgeous & warm. And beautiful. A change of scenery is always nice & very much appreciated. I’m not blogging b/c I’m enjoying my surroundings & the weather & my family.
Oh, did I tell you guys I’m in Phoenix? Beautiful, gorgeous, sunny PHOENIX! ~sigh~
My niece saw a black snake as we were walking to the bus-stop this morn. I wish I could post some pics, but I forgot the usb cord that connects my cam to Fernando.
Oh, did I tell y’all I finally picked a name for my new laptop? I ran the choices by my nieces & was secretly hoping that they also would like Fernando, & they DID!!! So, I’m happy to announce the name now. I said I liked it cause then he’ll have his own song, & I could call him Fern for short. I like when you have a long girl’s name (ie. Alexandra), & the shorter version is like a boy’s name (ie. Alex). Or, vice versa. The girls thought I should call him Ferny for short instead of Fern. So, I’ve concluded that it’s Fernando, short version will be Fern, & the affectionate nickname will be Ferny.
Growing up, we’ve all had our affectionate nicknames. I’ve had quite a few that I’ve been called, & some family members still call me by those names. Most call me by my proper (real) name, but I still have an aunt who calls me “Chuckee”, which was one of my nicknames.
