I'll be offline for a few days, as I'm back in Houston, this time visiting with my family and our relatives from Sweden. Before this morning, the last time I had seen my Aunt and two cousins was about three years ago. It feels so good to finally see them again. My Aunt is so cool. We've all spent the afternoon sitting around the backyard pool catching up, soaking in the gorgeous weather. It's 90 degrees, sunny, and the sky is crystal clear. The perfect day for a bbq, which we'll do later this evening.

Tomorrow, we're going to the Texas Renaissance Festival, apparently one of the largest in the country. I love those types of things. I think my cousins, particularly the one who is an avid World of Warcraft player, will enjoy it. I went to a Renaissance Fair with my friend Simone back in 1993, and had a fortune teller read my palm. She told me, at the time, that I would be married twice, and tha the second person I married would be my tru love. She told me a whole bunch of other crazy things that I remember being freaked out about. I think I'm going to have to get my palm read again to see what the universe has in store for me. So much has been in flux, both personally and professionally. It would be nice to have some hints about what lies ahead. Cross your fingers that she sees good things on the horizon.

Oh, I'm so jealous! I love Renaissance Faires, but we don't have one closeby now that we've moved home.

The one up here in North Texas is in May. Scarborough Faire. I haven't been since I was a kid, but I've been wanting to go the last couple of years. I needs to go on "The List".
